Glastonbury FOMO? Unmissable festivals for 2017

If like me you’re still suffering from Glastonbury FOMO, even though the festival has now finished, then this is the post for you. I’ve rounded up a list of unmissable festivals for the rest of the season.

Lovebox – 14-15 July, London

This year Lovebox is celebrating 15 years of love and has an absolutely banging line up including Jamie XX, DJ EZ, Chase & Status, Anne Marie and the boys from Krupt FM to name just a few. It’s held each year in London’s Victoria Park, which itself is absolute gorgeous. I’ve checked online and there are still some two day tickets available for £126 each but be quick, I have a feeling these will sell out fast!

Lovefit Festival, 28 – 31st July, Kent (brand new)

Lovefit is a brand new type of festival combining health and fitness with amazing music. By day the festival promises to offer yoga, HIIT session, spin bikes, nutrition tips and much more but, by night, it will turn into the ultimate dance party with Radio 1’s Danny Howard and Groove Armada’s Tom Findlay on the bill. Tickets cost £140 per person including camping.

Leopallooza, 28 – 30th July, Cornwall

This festival started by a group of friends back in 2006 and it’s now in its 11th year and still going strong. This year’s line-up includes Maximo Park, The Cribs and Gabrielle Aplin to name just a few. Tickets are such good value for a festival, only £110 each and that includes camping and car parking. If you’re feeling extra fancy then there’s the Golden Squirrel ticket which is £180 and includes access to super deluxe loos, showers and a hidden cocktail bar in the woods. Check it out at

Wilderness Festival – 3-6 August 2017

Affectionately dubbed a posher festival bash, head to Wilderness Festival in Oxfordshire to swim in a freshwater lake, tuck into a fine dining banquet and listen to bona fide legends. Two Door Cinema Club and Grace Jones top the line-up. There will also be some amazing long table banquets and restaurants with the likes of Tomasina Miers, Patty & Bun and Bubbledogs. Tickets cost £178 per person.

V Festival – 19-20 August 2017

V Festival is my personal favourite and I have such great memories of camping there every year with my girls. It’s the festival where I first saw Ed Sheeran live and countless other amazing artists and it will always be one I love very much. This year expect to see   Anne Marie, Busted, Annie Mac, Craig David, Dizzie Rascal, the amazing Sean Paul and Stormzy. Tickets are still available and cost £189 for camping.

Reading & Leeds – 25-27 August 2017

This year’s line-up for Reading and Leeds is incredible, Two Door Cinema Club, Eminem, Major Lazer, Liam Gallagher, Kasabian, Muse – this is literally just a handful of artists there are so so many amazing acts planned for this year. Tickets are still available (I checked online at time of publishing) for £213 per person including camping.

Sundown Festival – 1-3 September 2017

Previously known as Norfolk Spectacular, it became the Sundown Festival in 2012 and has a distinct urban flavour. It is one of the least expensive festivals to visit this summer, but still offers a great line-up including my favourite Craig David! OMG. Tickets are still available for £110 including camping

Although festival tickets always seem like a huge outlay in cost once you break it down to how much a concert ticket would be for each individual show, it’s such a cost effective way to see all of your favourites.

Now I know which festival I’m heading to, but what about you? Any festival plans?
