Best Music Festivals of 2017

Summer is now upon us and with that comes festival season! We are super excited about taking our wellies to the following festivals around the world. Tomorrowland and Glastonbury lead the way but if you missed out on getting tickets, there are plenty of others to whet your appetite.

Isle of Wight Festival

8-11 June 2017
Newport, Isle of Wight, UK

One of the original festivals which witnessed legendaries such as Jimi Hendrix, The Doors, The Who headline in the 70’s attracting a crowd of 600,000. This year Arcade Fire, Rod Stewart, David Guetta and Run DMC are all set to set the stage on fire alongside Kaiser Chiefs, Example and Texas. In recent years the festival has won awards for it's family-friendly attitude but with a glittering resume featuring the likes of The Rolling Stones, Amy Winehouse and David Bowie, it's safe to say its target audience are simply those with an appreciation of quality music.
