The Best Music Festivals of 2019
Festival season is well and truly upon us and there’s some top festivals around the UK to head to this summer. So don a bit of fringe, get out the face glitter and get yourself off to an amazing festival.
But if you’re not able to go to any festivals this summer or can’t bag yourself a ticket, don’t worry, we’ll give you the low down on all the festivals happening across the world in 2019. Any excuse for a cheeky little trip….
It’s for you if: You don’t like camping!
The festival takes place over three days in Finsbury Park London. There’s no camping either so no worries about having to stay in a tent, having to deal with the shower situation or needing an endless supply of wet wipes and shampoo in a can. There’s plenty of music going on and big name acts too and seen the likes of Kanye West and Kasabian take to the stage.
Friday 23rd August - Sunday 25th August
It’s for you if: You couldn’t go to Reading
Reading is currently sold out but Leeds is it’s Northern brother and you’ll get a similar vibe and acts up here. The two festivals run side by side on the same weekend. Predominantly rock and Indie music, Leeds is a festival for hard core festivals goers.
It’s for you if: You love house music
Thursday 22nd August - Sunday 25th August
Set in the stunning Cheshire countryside, Creamfields has been a firm fixture in the festival event calendar for years. If you love hard core house music, then you’ll love this festival. Swedish House Mafia are also set to headline at the event.
It’s for you if: You love Ibiza
If you fancy a city break infused with a festival, then Amsterdam Dance is the best of both worlds. Enjoy the sights of Amsterdam! Stroll next to endless canals lined with colourful buildings, take bike rides through the city and enjoy the architecture of Amsterdam. Then have a blow out night and dance for 24 hours at the Amsterdam Dance Event (ADE).

Victoria Stadium, Gibraltar
It’s for you if: You enjoy pop, rock, dance music and sun!

Outlook Festival Croatia
Weds 4th September - Sunday 8th September 2019
It’s for you if: You want to rave in beautiful scenery
Fancy parting amidst the backdrop of a 2,000 year old amphitheatre, a 150 year old fort or on a boat? With stunning beaches, dramatic cliffs offering stunning views over topaz coloured seas and ancient walled towns that longed to be explored, Croatia is an amazing setting for a holiday /festival.

Soul Beach Music Festival Aruba
It’s for you if: You like relaxed happy vibes and R&B music
Aruba looks like something straight out of a Bounty advert. Sun drenched beaches with nothing but a palm tree, a pure tropical oasis with waves that are a swirl of turquoise and deep navy blue lapping against the white sandy shores. Think chilled vibes, beach parties and hotel pool raves.
The likes of Usher, Alicia Keys and Mary J Blige have performed here so there are major acts that come to Aruba. John Legend and Ella Mai are performing this year too!
