The headline festivals and concerts in the UK this summer

0

There is nothing quite like going to a music festival in the UK…

Now that the cold winter days are a thing of the past, London is in full bloom and as summer fast approaches out attention turns to outdoor entertainment, which includes a wide range of music festivals that cater for all tastes. Many last several days and offer something for the whole family, as well as a clement 25 degrees Celsius, which is about the average for this time of year. The choice is impressive: there are those that run for a few days and encourage revellers to camp on site to those that last just one day. From the biggest to the smallest, no one can deny which is the most renowned and coveted – Glastonbury. The most important thing is to enjoy the musical talent on show during this year’s festival season. Here is a snapshot of the main acts due to play the UK in the coming months.
