UK festival FAQs

What are the most popular festivals in the UK?

Some of the most popular UK festivals include Glastonbury Festival – the biggest music festival in the UK – Reading and Leeds Festivals and the Isle of Wight Festival. But it’s not always the largest festivals that are hit with music lovers – events like BBC Proms, Focus Wales and the Radio 1's Big Weekend have plenty of fans too! 

 

What is the best UK festival?

When it comes to size, popularity and a lineup with some of the biggest names in music, Glastonbury is pretty unbeatable. The UK’s largest music festival has been running since 1970, and has hosted headline acts from The Rolling Stones and Radiohead to David Bowie and Beyonce!

 

What can I bring into festivals?

What you should take to a festival varies between events – some are stricter than others. Some one-day festivals won’t let you bring any food or drink into the venue, and most events will have bag checks in place. Generally, a good rule of thumb is to only pack the essentials: festival tickets, money and a good pair of wellies!

 

What are the best things about going to a festival?

The people you’ll meet and the memories you’ll make! The magic of UK music festivals is that there’s so much to experience – whether you’re staying for a day or a weekend, you can look forward to unforgettable live performances from world-famous acts as well as up and coming artists. Plus, many festivals also offer comedy and theatre shows, wellbeing workshops, family friendly activities and more!
