Last weekend festivals started again in the UK and it was a huge scene that returned with 40,000 attendees at Latitude Festival.
The music festival scene is typically a very busy one in the UK during the summer months with hundreds of festivals taking place each weekend. In the run up to the summer months, youngsters spend hours clicking and refreshing their web browsers to get those all important tickets.
Although there are hundreds of music festivals of all genres across the country, the most popular are for pop and rock music. The big names are Glastonbury, Isle of Wight, Reading & Leeds, Edinburgh, T in the Park, V fest and Wireless.
These music festivals take place in huge open green spaces with many stages and the line-up of celebrity artists is announced in advance. Youngsters often camp overnight to make a full event of it. You can choose which stages you want to visit, which artists you want to hear and there are lots of bars, food trucks and activities too.
Tickets can be bought for the day time, to camp overnight or for the entire weekend of events but tickets don’t always come cheap and a basic ticket can easily be hundreds of pounds. Having said that, they are also a great experience when going with a group of friends or family to have a laugh.
