Alternative Festival Guide

Festival season is in full swing, but fear not if you haven’t been able to secure tickets to Glasto, as there’s a mighty array of other festivals in store for July that offer just as much summer punch. Here’s a few to tentyour appetite…

Let’s not kid ourselves – a music festival is just as much about the food! For those that highly regard their outdoor grub, you’ll be truly feasting at Cornbury. The Hairy Bikers have their very own pop-up festival restaurant, complete with wood fired menu offerings. As for the music line-up, it’s an eclectic mix of feel-good-folk alongside nostalgic icons (BEACH BOYS!) Situated in a picture-perfect hideaway in The Cotswolds, this festival ticks all the boxes without feeling full of itself.

Filling the void that The Secret Garden Party recently left, Latitude is the artistic and spiritual sanctuary for festival goers this year. You’re encouraged to embark on a cultural safari across the arts, taking in comedy, theatre, dance and more. There’s even nearby sheep and a lake, could you ask for more!? Okay maybe you could – line-up wise there’s the other worldly Miss Lana Del Ray, through to the trash of Slaves and singalong number 1s from George Ezra. Bliss!

This boutique festival was born from a birthday barbecue – and is held on the private grounds of a Lordship – pretty cool right? Feeling like a country fair on a mega scale, the arts ‘n’ craft experience is given a seriously cool lick of paint – everything from den making to hula hooping and denim DYI’ing is up for attendance. Music wise you’re in for a treat too – Rag ‘N’ Bone Man, Wolf Alice and Friendly Fires are just a few of the indie heavyweights taking to Hertfordshire!

Standon Calling takes place 25th– 28thJuly 2019

Beat Herder is hard to believe until you see it. Where stages become wonderlands, you’ll find yourself lost in its electronic wilderness within minutes of arrival. Stage names include The Fortess, Trash Manor and The Perfumed Garden – need we say more? Oh and then there’s the music – with beats from the likes of Rudimental, Groove Armada and Basement Jaxx, you’ll wonder if you ended up in the dance shed at Glasto after all!
