What we’re excited for this 2019 festival season
The summer festival season has started, and this year there are a multitude happening up and down the country. Spanning a huge range of musical tastes and genres, there is something for everyone to enjoy. Here we share our recommendations.
Boomtown Fair – Chapter 11
7-11 August 2019, Matterles Estate, Hampshire
We are absolutely pumped to see Ms. Lauryn Hill perform on The Lions Den stage, her massive smash hits such as Doo Wop (That Thing) are sure to send the crowd into an absolute frenzy! Chase & Status are also going to be doing a blinding DJ set that we won’t be missing, even if the heavens above open in true British festival fashion.
Other notable acts include Groove Armada, UB40, The Streets and Salt-n-Pepa,as well as the weekend-long live action storyline unique to this event. Check out our previous Boomtown Fair post for the full Line Up.
19-21 July 2019, Hillsborough Park, Sheffield
Returning for 2019, Tramlines has a wonderful lineup this year full of artists that sure know how to put on a show. Rag’n’Bone Man is our number one across the three days, but we can’t wait for the likes of Annie Mac, Two Door Cinema Club and Circa Waves. Of course, Lewis Capaldi is going to blow the crowds away, so we’ll be sure to check out his performance, too!

Reading and Leeds Festival
23-25th August 2019, Reading / Leeds
The multi-site festival returns for 2019, with the line up alternating across each site on each day. The line up this year is astounding and incredibly strong. The 1975, Post Malone, Blossoms and Charlie XCX are out favourites, but there are so many other artists performing that we just can’t decide who to see! Twenty One Pilots and Yungblud are definitely going to put on a show that cannot be missed.
30th August – 2nd September, Sevenoaks, Kent
A first for us, Camp Wildfire is a festival unlike any other we have in the UK. It breaks away from the standard summer festival and instead creates it’s own category. Part music, part outdoor activities, this really is a fantastic event that gets people back out into the open and have fun deep in the midst of a forest in Kent!
We are most looking forward to the Treasure Hunt, Raft Building, Quad Biking and Screen Printing, however with such a choice of activities, there isn’t going to be enough time to do everything. Guess that means we’ll have to return for 2020 to finish them all off! Evening entertainment we are pumped for include Craig Charles and Little Gay Brother, and plenty more!
