View Comments(0)

Summer is soon approaching and it’s time to round up this year’s best festivals. From the muddy fields of Glastonbury to the quirky charm of Bestival, and headliners ranging from the Rolling Stones to Kraftwerk and Beyoncé, there is something to suit all tastes over the next four months. Here’s our pick of the biggest and best British festivals in 2013:

Glastonbury

Worthy Farm, Pilton — 26th-30th June

Glastonbury absolutely needs no introduction. This year’s mammoth four-day affair will include the legendary Rolling Stones, performing their smash hits like Brown Sugar and Jumpin' Jack Flash.

After strong rumors of their inclusion, Fleetwood Mac will not be making an appearance, although the Arctic Monkeys and Mumford and Sons have stepped in to provide adequate cover; many are hoping that Alex Turner and the lads will showcase some new material, with a new album announcement imminent.

90s legends Primal Scream will provide more than adequate Madchester representation and Dizzie Rascal will pull the usual dance-pop crowd; if the main stage isn’t your thing, Glastonbury, as always, satisfies all niches and tastes.

For dance lovers, the Silver Hayes tent is worth checking out — Rudimental, Sub Focus and Netsky will provide the necessary drum n bass beats, while international hip hop legend Nas will hope to better rival Jay-Z’s recent Glasto performance.

Unfortunately the event is now sold out, but if you were lucky enough to get a ticket, make sure you pack your wellies!
