You know that summer is definitely on its way when you and your mates are deciding on the best festival tickets to snap up! If your struggling with festival decisions as much as I am, here is a list of our favourite festivals and their dates in one place! Follow me on my quest to find the right festival(s) for my summer of fun and stay in tune to see the full gallery of images I collect along my way.
It’s the mother of all festivals, the festival that has absolutely everything you need to have a storming week of mud, tents and music! As is stands I am very jealous. If you are one of the fortunate eager beavers that had a million phones on redial and bagged yourself a Glasto ticket then well done! I on the other had was not so fortunate… Unless I am lucky enough to get me a resale, Glastonbury is off the cards for me this year.
As we all well know, Glastonbury does not reveal their line up till spring but here are the dates:
Wednesday 22nd – Sunday 26th June 2011
This is one I have never been to but heard its a mini Glasto (don’t quote me). It was the line up that caught my eye for this festival and the ticket is not a huge strain on my pocket! Here is the line up so far:
Right now I am hooked on Chase and Status so this along with Eminiem and Rihanna headlining made the temptation a little bit harder to resist!
Good old Wireless, right on my doorstep, no stress of a screaming tomtom and the laborious packing for a week of camping!
Me and my girls popped along to this last year and had an amazing time! Jay Z did not disappoint along with other stages full of decent music and a fun crowd! This year is another tempting list of artists and I am already feeling the strain of having to make a decision…. I am making an oath to myself that I WILL attend Wireless without a doubt even if I cannot decide on another one!
This years line up so far:
Friday 1st July:
The Black Eyed Peas • Plan B • Tinie Tempah • Bruno Mars • Example • Wretch 32 • Far East Movement • Labrinth • Yasmin • plus special guest David Guetta
Saturday 2nd July:
The Chemical Brothers • Chase & Status • The Streets • Aphex Twin • Chromeo • Katy B • Janelle Monae • Battles • Devlin • Digitalism • The Whip • Justin Robertson • Nero

My friends have told me that Love Box is supposed to be amazing! So this is another one that I am hoping to pop along to! The legendary Snoop Dog will be headlining on Saturday and has been rumoured to be performing the whole of his Doggystyle album. Exciting times for all us music lovers!
Many many other amazing festivals will be popping up all over summer! Here are some of our personal favourites, hope to see you there!
