Glastonbury is one of the most well-known music festivals in the UK but also in the world. It’s a five day music festival that takes near Pilton, Somerset. This year the festival goers revelled at one of the best years yet with performances from headline acts Florence and the Machine, Kanye West and The Who.

Glastonbury is a fantastic weekend with a diverse range of music genres, but it’s not just about the music it’s an extravaganza of circus entertainers, protesters, magicians, secret bars and a huge array of delicacies from the pop-up food stands.

2. T in the Park: 9-12 July T-in-the-Park Image
Scotland’s biggest music festival T in the Park took place this July at Strathallan Castle, Perthshire.

The line-up this year saw a contrast of acts with the likes of rock band Kasabian, DJ Avicii, The Script, Rudimental, David Guetta and George Ezra to name a few.

If you wanted to be entrained by more than just the music, you were never far from something a bit different. You could refresh and revitalise at one of the pamper station with hair washing stations, strainers, showers and flushing toilets. Or have a chillout in the light box area where you could enjoy free WIFI and sit back in a bean bag. For the thrill seekers, the fairground may have been more your thing with a bungee ball throwing you into the air really awakening the senses. It was a weekend for a variety of partying, chilling and soaking up an overall fun filled atmosphere.

3. Secret Garden Party: 23rd-26th July 2015Secret-Garden-Party

The line-up at Secret Garden party is something to take you on a musical journey with an eclectic mix such as The Cat Empire, Palma Violets, Say Lou Lou and Temples. The music is a variation of cool, soothing and energetic.

Like any other festival taking place in 2015 it’s not all about the music, Secret Garden Party was a madness of spiced up entertainment with poetry, old school speakers and clever comedy. This year the Friday was taken over by the fancy dress theme ‘Childish things’, seeing adults dressed as their favourite cartoon characters and toys. It makes definitely an event of interesting and imaginative dress.
