The festival is promoted by ‘fullfat’, which has set up a range of offers, from soaking up and topping up your tan at the amazing boat parties from 1pm to 11pm, spritz away at the pool parties from 3pm-8pm or get involved with face painting, bungee jumping or relax on the exotic island with the use of bean bags.
2) Parklife Festival, Manchester
The annual Manchester summer festival is approaching June 11th-June 12th at the Heaton Park! The Warehouse Project is promoting this year’s northern delight and succeeded well last year with Rudimental and Disclosure headlining and top acts took over the stage, such as, DJ Mark Ronson and DJ Fat Boy Slim, Ella Eyre, Labrinth and more.
There is a vast range of entertainment such as, the sky ride, also called, ‘The Big Wheel’, where you can fit a small group of your friends into and ride slowly up high to catch a bird’s eye view of your best artists performing! Another favourite ride is ‘The Log Flume’ where you can truly bounce up and down to the beats in the park in style! There is also a mixture of cultural foods and drinks available in small stalls such as, Indian food, Chinese food to chicken caesar wraps or kebabs…or you can clench your thirst with the festivals favourite Somersby Cider or fine rose wine…so grab your shades and sip away in the rays!
3) Electric Daisy Festival, Milton Keynes
The Electric Daisy Carnival or simply EDC is heading to the UK this summer on Saturday 9th July at Milton Keynes national bowl, hosted by ‘Insomniac’! This ultimate carnival experience introduces electronic music, fancy dress costumes and colourful art instalments, whilst the wide energy shells up the fields with magic… making this spectacular carnival one to definitely not miss out on! This year’s EDC will consist of the likes of Avicii and Duke Dumont and many more who will be performing amongst four different stage arenas.
If the music isn’t enough, then you can sky high with a range of full-sized carnival rides and catch a glimpse of the electrifying power from a perfect bird’s eye view…here you can join the sun or stars, day to night in an elevated swing carrying two people and take a breather to really treasure the moment. Otherwise, become memorized by performing dancers, stilters, aerialists, circus performers all dressed to impress and become more involved by joining the life of the party with a creative piece of art painted onto your face!
4) Blissfields Festival, Winchester
Awarded ‘The Best Small Festival’ in 2007 is the Hampshire annual festival is coming this June 30th-July 2nd 2016, at Vicarage Farm, Woodmancott, not too far from the wonderful Winchester and consists of pop, folk, indie rock ‘n’ roll and electric dance tunes. The rap legend ‘Dizzie Rascal’ will be taking over the stage by headlining for this year’s Blissfield’s mania, and top acts such as, Serial Killaz, Beans on Toast, Dub Pistols and many more will be performing.
‘The Blissfield’s Hobgoblin Beer Festival’ will be open for those craving a traditional cider! Otherwise, for those wanting a break from the wild side then the selection of arts and crafts activities is the perfect way to wind down in ‘The Craft Area’…or get sloshy with explosive competitions such as, the yearly pie fight rivalry. Or, get cosy with a selection of midnight films or cackle out loud with a range of comedy acts performing in a separate tent, or take a slump away in ‘The Elysian Lounge’ for a quick cat nap…what more could you ask for?
5) The Nostock Festival, Bromyard
The 2016 summer ‘Hidden Valley festival’ is approaching 22nd-24th July, in the bliss of the daisy fields! The family friendly festival is held in the heart of Herefordshire, West Midlands, and the outer parts of the small town, Bromyard. The festival is notable for its organic and botanic way of life, which has been endorsed by winning ‘The Greener Festival Award’, in 2013-2014.
Last year, the event had an amazing line-up of artists from a variety of different genres including Fuse ODG and P Money as well as ground shaking groovy tunes from artists DJ Hype and Jurassic pop for those dancing kings and queens, across three different stages.
Otherwise, art fanatics and comedians can show off their skills, learn new skills, and network their talent in a variety of workshops, one being, ‘The Laughing Stock’. Previous comedians, such as Russell Howard and Stephen Frost have taken over here. Or, ‘The Bantam of the Opera House’ is a tent filled with theatre, poetry and creative circus acts. A variety of shows performed with fancy dress costumes make the event more creative. One of last year’s famous acrobats, Eloise and Leo, from ‘Circus Inferno’ burned out the arena and were seen spinning of an electric swing. However, for those wanting a more peaceful atmosphere away from the loud open field, then the visual performances of art, film and music in a ‘cinetent’ makes the setting a more appropriate environment to engage in. The cinema plays a variety of documentaries at ‘The Wrong Directions Cinetent’ and has been hosted by Mash Cinema, since 2002.
