5 festivals NC gals will be totally into
With the obligatory Coachella Insta spam coming this weekend, it’s time to get those tickets bought and paid for so you don’t explode with jealousy. If you can’t beat ‘em, join ‘em at these top 5 festivals this summer…
12 – 14 & 19 – 21 April, California
Vibe: Pop, Hip-hop, Indie, Electric & EDM
Line-up: Childish Gambino, Tame Impala, Ariana Grande, Solange, Khalid
Yep, we know it starts this weekend, but holla… there are still weekend two tickets available! Locate the passport people, you’ve got some celebs to spot and a heap of fun to have.
All Points East
24 May – 02 June, London
Line-up: The Chemical Brothers, Christine and the Queens, Little Dragon, Bon Iver
Based in East London’s Victoria Park, this is an epic ten day festival. The opening and closing three day weekends are given over to music, while four days of free activities feature during the week, including comedy, film screenings, street food and more.
30 May – 1 June, Barcelona
Vibe: Rock, Pop, Dance
Line-up: Miley Cyrus, FKA twigs, Solange, Tame Impala, Stereolab, James Blake
Like anyone needs an excuse for a trip to Barcelona, but nevertheless, here’s one! If you’re into city breaks, like to keep your footwear clean and would opt for an Airbnb over a tent, this is the festival for you.
We Love Green
1 – 2 June, Paris
Vibe: Alternative, Electronic, Rock, Techno
Line-up: Christine and the Queens, FKA Twigs, Tame Impala, Metronomy
Returning for its sixth year, We Love Green is an eco-conscious event organised by people that love the environment and attended by people that have no problem throwing a cup of sawdust into the 100% recyclable toilet after they use the facilities! Who doesn’t want to have a blast in 14 acres of Parisienne park, where champagne on tap is virtually the same price as beer?
26 – 30 June, Somerset
Vibe: Combining every genre under the sun, definition of something for everyone
Line-up: Stormzy, The Cure, The Killers, Vampire Weekend, Christine & The Queens
Because everyone has to go to Glasto once. Steeped in tradition (46 years to be precise) and like no other festival in the world, you can’t get involved in the convo about the loos, the mud or the off the charts experience unless you get low down and dirty at Worthy Farm, Somerset, once in your life. Word of warning, this is not one for the faint hearted, unless you can afford to glamp.
