Enjoy a weekend of highs at Rewind Festival (Steve Turvey)

There’s something truly hedonistic about watching your favourite band perform in a field to thousands of people while you’re covered in glitter, mud and some kind of cider or beer.

As many events were cancelled in both 2020 and 2021 due to COVID, this year’s festival line-ups are better than ever as artists have missed performing just as much as we’ve been dreaming about getting back to the mosh pit.

While tickets for the biggest events such as Glastonbury sold out within minutes, there’s still time to book tickets for a live music event or two that will be one of the highlights of your summer.

And if you’re not fussed about camping, many events still have day passes remaining so you can catch the action and then check into a hotel.

Here are more details about some of the hottest UK festivals that still have tickets available.
