Radio 1 Big Weekend: 27th-28th May
Kicking things off this festival season is, as always, Radio 1’s Big Weekend. This year Hull are lucky enough to be hosting Katy Perry, Kasabian, Lana Del Rey, Kings of Leon, Stormzy and many more over the weekend. Unfortunately, if you haven’t got a ticket already you haven’t much luck of getting one now. However, you can still join in on all the music madness via the Radio 1 live stream.


Download: 9th-11th June

With Biffy Clyro and Of Mice And Men among the line-up, this year’s Download festival is set to be a good one. Grab your tickets for the 3-day rock festival online now.

Glastonbury: 21st-25th June

Unsurprisingly the line-up for this year’s Glasto is already amazing. With the likes of Ed Sheeran, Foo Fighters, Katy Perry and Stormzy among the big names, if you’re off to Somerset for this festival you are in for a treat. Unfortunately, if you didn’t already manage to bag yourself some tickets you’ll have to try again next year as it is sold out.
