Beautiful Days

Veteran folk band The Levellers organise this family affair, which has a large children?s area organised by Majical Youth Theatre with crafts, circus, storytelling and more. I like the sound of a show called ?Aerodynamics of Biscuits?. The music is also of a folky strain, including the likes of The Waterboys, Eliza Carthy and Paul Heaton & Jacqui Abbott.

The UK?s much lauded, award-winning boutique fiesta has as many forms of silliness and absurdity as it does musical performers ? and there?s around 1,000 of them. With legendary late night mischief, pianos popping up in the woods, lit up lakesides, mass fancy dress, along with poetry, theatre, comedy and plenty more to discover, the only thing you?ll struggle with is fitting it all in.


Hidden amongst the swell and sunshine of the south-west coast of England, Boardmasters mixes the best boarders in the world ? whether they?re surfers or skaters ? with BMX kings, and soundtracks the action with dance dons, folk stars, and pop favourites. With cliff-top sessions and surf shack shows, it's only a cocktail short of the best weekend of the year. Ready to make your Instagram followers jealous?


A boiling pot of vibrancy, theatre, fantasy, escapism and camaraderie, Boomtown Fair is a hub of diverse and non-commercialised musical movements whose roots stretch far and wide.

Few festivals ? if any ? make as remarkable an impression after only one edition as Houghton.
