August Festival Low-Down!
With August in full swing, it’s fair to say we’re all enjoying the last few weeks of the summer season, dodging the showers, and making a break for any sunshine that makes its way through the clouds. But, that’s not to say that we still can’t enjoy a good festival or two! There are plenty of great festivals coming up throughout August, particularly for this upcoming Bank Holiday, so catch them while you can!
One of the bigger festivals left to grace the UK this summer is Creamfields, which takes place in Daresbury in Cheshire. With a relaxed vibe, showcasing some of the biggest acts from the world of Electronic Dance, this year you can expect to see Calvin Harris, The Chemical Brothers, DJ Annie Mac and a Chase and Status DJ set to name just a few. Running across the Bank Holiday, from Thursday 22nd to Sunday 25th August, the award-winning music festival will be a big hit with music goers and we love to hear that the festival are putting a major importance on sustainability, including offering a £1 bar token for those that re-use their plastic cups!
Reading and Leeds has got to be the biggest festival still left to begin for 2019, with this year’s line-up promising to be a great one! The 1975, Royal Blood, Post Malone and the Foo Fighters are headliners for each day’s events at Reading, with the big weekend starting on Friday 23rd August, ahead of the Bank Holiday weekend. Leeds however is similarly boasting some top talent, with Billie Eilish, Blossoms and You Me at Six taking over for the sister event. Alongside the incredible musical talent taking on the main stages, the alternative stage is also playing host to some incredible comedians including Russell Kane, Josh Widdicombe and stand-up comedian Bridget Christie.
A not-so famous festival in Portsmouth will also be one to get excited about this Bank Holiday weekend, Victorious Festival, celebrating its 8th year of performances in the seaside resort of Southsea. This year’s exciting line-up includes the incredible Rudimental, James Bay and millennial favourite Lewis Capaldi, with 90’s favourite All Saints gracing us with a special performance on the Saturday! What we love about Victorious is that they also celebrate music and bands from all across the world, alongside different musical genres, and there’s even a Kids area, so it can be a family affair!
