We all love a festival. Whether your preference be sun-soaked Croatian party vibes, rolling around in 3 feet of mud and a bucket hat or braving the desert with nothing but a bike and an open mind. We’ve thrown together the ones we’re most excited for in 2016..
Why? The ultimate Croatian dance festival. Beautiful people, sun-drenched pool parties, dance music all day and night. Part festival, part Ibiza-esque villa holiday and for £729 you can bag yourself a package deal including your flight, baggage, transfers, festival ticket and apartment.
Who’s playing? Jamie xx, Skepta, Adam Beyer, Hot Since 82, J.E.S.u.S. , Steve Lawler, Dusky, Hannah Wants, Bicep + more.
Why? The Godfather of Festivals and if the headliner rumours are anything to go by, this is going to be one big Glastonbury. Synonymous with losing everyone and everything you own and drowning in a river of mud (in a good way).
Who’s playing? As always, the Glasto team keep you guessing until the last minute. The full lineup will be released around April time but rumours include Adele, Foo Fighters, Muse, Coldplay and The Stone Roses. One thing we do know is that the lineup won’t disappoint.
Why? Instagram was Burning Man heavy in 2015. Apparently everyone was having a go at communal living: Social media entrepreneurs, supermodels, popstars, actors – you name it. A surreal festival in the desert, built on the concept of creating a temporary community (where no cash transactions are allowed) and then leaving no trace of ever having been there.. We’ll play.
Who’s playing? TBA but not the main reason to go.
Why? Snow x music = one hell of a good time! The lineup this year is top-notch with Jamie Jones, Fatboy Slim, Andy C, Sven Vath and The Prodigy topping the bill (plus loads more) and for under £1000 you can get 7 nights accom (chalet), full board (3 meals a day + wine), festival ticket and return flights and transfers.
Who’s playing? The Prodigy, Jamie Jones, Fatboy Slim, Andy C, Sven Vath, BTraits, Anja Schneider, Hot Since 82, Hannah Wants, Idris Elba, Andrea Oliva + more
