Music festivals have been part of the UK culture for many years. The Glastonbury festival first took place in 1970 and has seen famous artists such as The Rolling Stones, Beyonce and Oasis. Just 1500 tickets were issued for the first Glastonbury concert, whilst today the festival sells out its 135,000 tickets almost immediately – even before the line-up is confirmed.
The UK festivals calendar for 2016 is again packed full of great events to attend. Anything from the Download Festival and The Isle of Wight Festival in June to the V Festival and Reading and Leeds Festivals taking place during August.
Outdoor music festivals in the UK usually take place between June and August. They are great fun for all, but come at a high price. Many weekend festival tickets with camping will cost between £150-£250, and if you want Glamping or VIP access the price is even higher.
