It is summer and if that isn’t enough to make your heart lift up with a little lilt of happiness, it is festival season too! Some of the UK’s best festivals are taking place right now and into the coming months. The festival season can turn out to be rather expensive if you’re not careful: tickets for festivals entries, expenses involved in getting there and of course some snazzy new festival wear. Here are some tips for working the festival season without busting your budget this summer.
UK festivals with a difference
While top festivals such as Glastonbury may well be sold out completely, there are lots of other options available to you – which are also cheaper. Why not try something a bit different like the Wildfire Adventure Camp this coming weekend; a festival for thrill seeking adults at a secret location in Kent or Blissfields in Woodmancott, Hampshire; an intimate do which prides itself on being removed from the larger, commercial festivals – this year it’s themed around the idea of a house party. There are also several jazz festivals, folk music performances and more to check out in July.
