Five Festivals To Head To In August

25th July 2017

Festival season is in full swing and we’re coming up to one of the biggest months in music…August!

One of my favourite parts about festivals is the road trip to get there, blasting out the tunes and getting hyped with your friends. If you’re still undecided which festival you’re going to hit up this Summer, car insurance have cleverly created a Summer festival map which is super useful whether you’re looking for a festival closer to home or want to know where your favourite artists will be.

I’ve rounded up my top five festival picks for the upcoming Month, so you can be sure that your Summer goes out in Style!
