The thought of standing in a field and coming together as one with thousands of strangers may seem weird at this time of year when it’s cold and dark outside, but that’s exactly why you need to start planning your summer right now. While Glastonbury festival tickets sold out the minute they went on sale, there are still loads of other music festivals to choose from in the UK and abroad, with discounts available for early bird bookings.
So whether you want to rave it up in Essex, the Isle of Wight or Ibiza this summer, act now to make it happen.
Our recommendations? For something a little different, try the beachside Dimensions Festival in Croatia. Or if you want to stay closer to home, try the hedonistic music and arts festival, The Secret Garden Party, held on a Georgian farm in Cambridgeshire.
