For those of you that missed this a few weeks ago, here is my ultimate guide to the biggest festivals taking place this summer!

Believe it or not Summer is on its way. Yup, get your hat, sunglasses and tents at the ready because the season of music is nearly here.

Aside from deciding which box fresh trainers (or converse/ flats/ heels/ I have no idea about female fasion) to show off in the sun or which new dress to wear there is also the yearly dilema of which music festival to attend and with SO many to choose from the task could seem quite daunting.

So let me and my musical expert mind help you out a little, or at least try to.

Who is on the bill for this years big UK festivals…
