After laying low for the past two years due to the pandemic, festival season is finally back. With this, we thought it was time to update our go to line up.
In no particular order, we have:
When: 29th June to 10th July
This festival runs for 5 days over this period. Turning the tranquil, scenic, picnic perfect Lancashire coast into a buzzing destination for live performances, food and fun. What started as a community proms style concert now welcomes 70,000 people each summer, the likes of Kodaline and Elbow will be entertaining the large crowds this year.
When: 8 – 10th July
Glasgow becomes a hot spot for pop, rock and electronica fans. With acts ranging from Paolo Nutini, Sam Fender, Wolf Alice and The Strokes it is the perfect opportunity to pack your parka and bucket hat.
Also, this year is apparently their ‘most delicious food line up yet!’ so we think you’d be crazy to miss out!
When: 21 – 24th July
Latitude provides something for everyone, go crazy to bands such as Foals, stumble across your new favourite comedian then find your balance in the yoga tent. Suffolk, providing the most jam packed few days of the summer!
READING AND LEEDS FESTIVAL
Of course we couldn't leave out the UK's most profound rock festival!
When: Taking place on the same August bank holiday every year. This year it falls on the 26 – 28th August.
Majority of the biggest bands have performed on their stages at least once in their career and this year it is time for Artic Monkeys, Joy Crookes, Dave and Bastille to take centre stage (just to name a few...).
Festivals aren’t only designed for music lovers…
HEATON PARK FOOD FESTIVAL
When: 20-21st August
Call yourself a foodie? Head to Manchester for a few days of artisan markets, international food stalls and live chef demos all to the soundtrack of feel-good summer tunes.
BLUEDOT FAMILY FESTIVAL
When: 21-24th July
If you feel like taking your mini me along for the ride this summer, Bluedot is the ideal family festival. Providing science experiments and immersive art sculptures for playing in, there is no way your little one will have any reason to complain about being bored!
Jodrell Bank Observatory in Cheshire is used to holding family events, so if flat ground, adult entertainment, and a small enough venue that doesn’t overwhelm your children sounds appealing… Bluedot is the place for you.
PACK YOUR PARKA!
And although we wish we could control the weather for wonderful weekends in the fields, sadly we can’t. As the saying goes “There's no such thing as bad weather, only unsuitable clothing”.
In anticipation of their return, fun colours of our classic Navigator parka have been designed to stand out as a crowd favourite for not ruining those carefully planned outfits! The PU outer is showerproof making it the ideal companion for a UK festival weekend.
Our Watson parka is our twist on a classic Parka, giving traditional festival vibes. Made from waxed cotton, it is waterproof but breathable meaning you’re protected from all the elements.
What’s more, the subtle orange tubing makes it the ideal festival outfit companion.
There really is no better time to pack your parka than for a festival this summer!
