It is well known that British music festivals are renowned the world over for their ability to attract the coolest acts around.
Brothers Cider, as you know, is intrinsically linked with one of the best camping festivals in the UK – Glastonbury, which is usually held in June each year. The 2021 Live at Worthy Farm lineup included some well-known favourites such as Coldplay, George Ezra and Wolf Alice, to name but a few.
If you are planning on going to Glastonbury Festival 2022, make sure you take some time to come and say hello and enjoy a refreshing hit of our famous fruit cider at the B-Bar, located in our usual place by The West Holts Stage.
But let's not forget some of the other amazing camping festival experiences that go on around the UK.
Isle of Wight Festival
The Isle of Wight Festival 2021 lineup features some big names including Liam Gallagher, Snow Patrol, Duran Duran, David Guetta, Tom Jones, Razorlight, Primal Scream, and Sam Fender. The festival began in 1968 and was one of the UK's first outdoor music festivals and is still going strong 50 years on.
The Boardmasters Festival is held in Cornwall during August and mixes the best surf boarders and skaters in the world to thumping soundtracks from the likes of Gorillaz, Foals, Jorja Smith, Sam Fender, Loyle Carner, Jamie xx, Lianne La Havas and Blossoms.
Reading & Leeds Festivals
The Reading and Leeds Festival is usually a sell-out event held in August each year so booking early is advised. The festival is a fantastic platform for both rising and already established indie bands, metal, dance and alternative pop acts.
Download Festival is a rock festival held annually in June at Donington Park in Derbyshire. Since taking over from the Monsters of Rock annual outdoor festival, Download has become one of the most popular camping rock music festivals in the world.
The Download Festival features some of the biggest rock names, including Black Sabbath, Slipknot, Metallica, Iron Maiden, Motörhead, Aerosmith, AC/DC, Def Leppard, Kiss, Judas Priest, Status Quo, Mötley Crüe, ZZ Top, Whitesnake and Guns N' Roses, and more.
An Honourable Mention
While the above-mentioned camping festivals are incredibly popular, we never forget to appreciate the time and effort that goes into organising many of the smaller yet still amazing music festivals that go on around the country each summer.
