Festival Guide 2014

Image

Writing this blog in the United Raindom (ha!) it can be hard to believe that summer is just a few months away. However, festival season is nearly upon us and it is never too early to start planning for that once in a lifetime experience. Without further a do, this is your guide to the biggest and best music festivals in the world in 2014.

Best Festival:

And the nominations are –

  • Reading & Leeds (QOTSA, Paramore, Arctic Monkeys, Blink-182)
  • Glastonbury (Arcade Fire, Dolly Parton, Disclosure, Blondie, Black Keys)
  • T in the Park (Biffy Clyro, Calvin Harris, Arctic Monkeys, Pixies)
  • Bonnaroo (Elton John, Kanye West, Arctic Monkeys, Vampire Weekend)
  • Rock Werchter (Metallica, Pearl Jam, Kings of Leon, Black Keys)
  • Ultra Music (MGMT, MIA, Tiesto, Armin Van Buuren)

And the winner is… Rock Werchter!

Belgium’s number one rock and alternative music festival is a sell out already and there is little wonder when you look at the star studded line up. Festival Park in Werchter welcomes the likes of Damon Albarn, Arctic Monkeys, Chase and Status and much more across various genres from the 3rd-6th of July. The festival is a blend of British, American and international artists whilst maintaining its roots with a large selection of Belgian acts such as Stromae.

Most Disappointing Line Up:

And the nominations are –

  • Benicassim (fib) (Kasabian, Paul Weller, Paulo Nutini, Lily Allen)
  • Y Not (White Lies, Dizzee Rascal, Frank Turner, Razorlight)
  • Lattitude (Royksopp, Black Keys, Mogwai, Editors)

And the winner is… Benicassim!

With last years amazing line up making the Spanish festival one of 2013’s highlights, the initial acts announced are incredibly safe and uninspiring. QOTSA, Arctic Monkeys, The Killers, Beady Eye and Primal Scream in 2013; Ellie Goulding, Tinie Tempah, Example, Courteeners and The 1975 in ’14. No doubt there is still some quality acts to see and a more poppy line up in a beautiful Spanish summer will please festival virgins. However, the festival that promised so much looks weak this year if you’re planning on going abroad.

Best Cheap UK Festival:

And the nominations are –

  • Bestival (Outkast, Foals, Disclosure, Busta Rhymes)
  • Bloodstock Open Air (Megadeth, Down, Emperor, Children of Bodom)
  • Boardmasters (Chase and Status, Snoop Dogg, Bastille, The Cribs)
  • Global Gathering (Chase and Status, The Prodigy, David Guetta, Sub Focus)

And the winner is… Boardmasters!

6th-10th of August sees the likes of The Cribs, Peace, The Enemy and Snoop Dogg (aka Snoop Lion) arrive on Cornwall’s sunny shores. With tickets ranging from £99-£139 and surf, BMX and skate displays taking place throughout, there’s no better way to spend a weekend.
