On the face of it, going to a music festival seems slightly mad doesn’t it? Turning down a Spanish holiday to camp in a field with thousands of strangers…crazy. Spending your weekend struggling to put up a tent in British Weather and queuing for the toilet for hours…why on earth would anyone do that?
But we know why we do it really. It’s for the atmosphere. It’s for the experience. And it’s for the music.
This year has already been an amazing few months for live music festivals. But the show’s not over yet, and 2018 still has plenty in store to get excited about, so here are a few line-ups we really like the look of.
