Going to a music festival can be a fantastic idea, and there are some great festivals out there at the moment, or on the horizon. In fact, summer festivals in the UK are fantastically exciting and vibrant events.
One of the biggest festivals in the UK in the summer is the V festival. This is a celebrated two-day event that regularly attracts high-quality headline acts. It’s also got a nice fun vibe attached to it, with a young approach. It was created by the Virgin Media group of companies and runs across 22nd and 23rd August 2015.
Every festival lives or dies on its line-up, and this year the V Festival certainly doesn’t disappoint. With so many festivals sprouting up across the length and breadth of the company, competition is fierce. But the festival has managed to pull in some big names, making it one of the biggest draws this summer, hands down.
Without a doubt the festival has done well to book two major acts in Sam Smith and Kasabian. These two acts have been very popular in the UK over the last few years, with Sam Smith in particular being very popular with music fans. Kasabian have also gone from strength to strength, and are sure to be popular with the crowds.
The V Festival is also full of other acts, such as Ellie Goulding and George Ezra, which are popular and are reliable draws. But there are also some true crowd pleasers, such as the legendary Tom Jones, and The Proclaimers, both of who will bring their own particular style to the event.
The festival is not just about chart music either, and it has two days of great dance music in the dance tent to offer in 2015. This year Hannah Wants and Oliver Heldens headline, with old favourites like Goldie adding more flavour.
The festival has a number of options when it comes to tickets and prices, and there are sure to be arrangements that will suit most attendees. The day ticket price is an attractive £89, which is competitive compared to other events, especially when you consider it is a two-day event. As regards camping, there is the option of buying a ticket to camp at the event for £189.
But the festival also offers a handy two-day pass with no camping for just £165. This means you get to see all the acts you need to, and can still go home for the comforts you need if you wish (or stay at a comfortable hotel).
The festival also offers special VIP rates. This means you gain more comfort, with exclusive seating areas and other benefits such as higher quality toilet facilities. You also gain in the location, with views that are that more attractive throughout your stay. In addition, there are also added benefits with late night DJ parties.
The V Festival is sure to be booked up quickly this year with such high quality acts, so if you’re interested, now’s the time to get a ticket.
