1. Field Day
Want to hear something new? Field Day’s genre hopping line up is a day-long celebration of upcoming talent, with the likes of electronic composer Aphex Twins, rock outfit Slowdive and American hip-hop group Run The Jewels on the bill.
Deep in the heart of London, Victoria Park will transform into a humungous Village Fete – challenge your mates to a sack race, tug of war or egg and spoon challenge. Loser gets the first round of craft beer from London’s Brewer’s market? There’s no better way to wash down tasty eats from Street Feast at Field Day.
2. Latitude Festival 2017
Combining music, art and comedy in a family-friendly way, Latitude and their merry flock of painted sheep have seriously spoiled you this year. Seek out late night DJ sets and immersive live art performances in the woods, marvel at ballerinas and dancers on the waterfront stage or cast your eyes over a few documentary and film screenings.
Not only does Latitude boast the biggest comedy line up in the UK, with Katherine Ryan and Dara Ó Briain going for laughs – but you get six live music stages. Everyone from The Coral and Lucy Rose to Milky Chance and folk super group Mumford and Sons will hot step onto the Obelisk Arena main stage. Like the sound of that? You can still grab your tickets – this year’s theme is ‘Come the Revolution’.
Latitude Festival is at Henham Park in Suffolk from Thursday 13th to Sunday 16th July 2017. Weekend camping tickets £205.50 (kids aged 5-12, £10) – ticket options on See Tickets.
3. Boardmasters Festival 2017
Join the biggest names in music and surf in Newquay for an incredible summer festival.

And head down to Fistral Beach to see four action-packed surf contests, including the World Championship Tour qualifier. You can even don your wetsuit and learn to catch waves with the Official Boardmasters surf school.
Want more? Imagine custom-built BMX and skate parks, live art installations, free yoga sessions and more. Boardmasters happens to be the UK’s cheapest festival per hour of music, so when you grab a ticket last minute, you can be sure you’ll get your money’s worth.

4. V Festival
If it’s an all-out pop extravaganza you want, there are plenty of V Festival tickets just waiting to be snapped up. BBC Radio 1 Stage is the place to be on Friday night, where Annie Mac will kick off your weekend with Chase and Status or Netsky Live – at Chelmsford’s Hylands Park or Weston Park in Staffordshire.
Explore four more stages on Saturday and Sunday, starring the biggest pop sensations, from P!nk, Jay Z and Ellie Goulding to Craig David, Ella Eyre and ‘Talk Dirty’ singer Jason Derulo. Up for a laugh? Beat a path to The Glee Comedy Tent, headlined by funny men Joe Lycett or Lee Nelson.

5. Reading & Leeds Festival 2017
What better way to spend your August bank holiday weekend than in a field with the likes of Kasabian and Liam Gallagher at Reading or Leeds Festival 2017? Veterans Muse and Eminem are both headlining the festival for the third time. But keep your eyes peeled for a secret set on the smaller stages. The Haim sisters, grime star Wiley and pop rockers You Me At Six are well worth seeking out away from the main stage.
