Which Festival Do I Go To This Summer?

April 16, 2013 -

Finn Lurcott

So its come to that time where everyone is starting to feel that summer sun and getting in the mood to party. As a result of this, the subject of festivals comes to mind and we find ourselves wondering where to go. For those of you who already have their festivals tickets booked like me, I am sure that you are pleased to have sorted it all out and are ready to pull the trigger, throwing yourself into the madness. However for those of you who don't have tickets it's at a point in the year where tickets are an issue and most of the festivals have sold out of tickets. Due to this I thought I would make it easier for you guys to sort through where your going to be hitting this summer to enjoy the sun. Below I have compiled for you a list of festivals that I think may appeal, and also where the tickets are still on sale. I have also sorted it into where abouts you are in the world, just to make it that little bit easier on your behalf. Happy searching!
