Hellloo.
After my A Levels are finished this year i really want t go to a music festival with my friends in the summer. I went to two last year and i loved them so it would be great to go to some more. I live in the UK so preferably in england really, and not too expensive! Any ideas? thanks!

Hey, It depends what music youre into but the lineup for Lovebox is frikin amazing. And its much cheaper compared to other festivals, so check it out
I'm planning to go myself if i can find someone but most people are away on holidays since it's the last year of school as well for us

I'm going to Secret Garden Party, it looks so cool. The music is pretty alternative but theres a massive lake and paint fights

I'm going to Kendal Calling, although the line-up isn't to everyone's taste.

Y Not Festival is pretty cheap, and the line-up seems alright.

Really depends on your music taste, if you give us some indication as to what you listen to we can probably answer your question better

Reading
Beat me to it

The lineup this year is amazing, too bad I'll have to settle with watching it on the TV.
Or hearing the faint sound of it outside.

If you can afford £100 each then Ultra is the best you can get. You get soo much for that amount but the muscis taste might not be what you want. Youtube Miami / Europe Ultra and you'll see what it's like.

I can't wait :P It's my first festival so I'm hoping it will live up to the hype. Have you ever been to Reading festival?

I went last year and all I can say is be prepared! The toilets in the beginning are atrocious, they scared me and during the night I would much prefer to pee in the bushes than step in one of them. Unfortunately some people had the idea of doing so during the day as well...

The camping is fun especially if you're in a large group and can steal people's food (I lost my wallet in the beginning and so had to ration myself to three alpen bars a day); but be careful not to forgot about the actual music. On the saturday I ended up seeing only two artists because we spent the rest of the time drinking and talking

And btw there are showers there, communal ones (same sex tho of course) which I really don't mind and only one or two girls got full on naked-I mean come on, it's not as if it's anything you haven't seen before.

I'm going in a huge group so stealing peoples food won't be a problem . I've heard about the toilets and will only go in one if I need a poo. Being a guy, peeing in the bushes won't bother me.

Thanks for the information .

Reading all the way! Isle of Wight looks absolutely insane, but its slap-bang in the middle of exams, so I'll have to give that a miss I'm afraid. If its your first festival, then my top tip for you is always to stay with someone, preferably someone who has a phone!
For Reading, make sure you get your butt to: Imagine Dragons, Arctic Monkeys, Drenge, DON BROCO, Blink-182 and YMAS.

Let me know if you need any more information and I hope you have fun! I'm planning on going for the saturday I think; but I'm also heading to Croatia for a festival this year with camping but at least the weather will be nicer tans and beach parties rather than rain and mud
