You’ve seen everybody Instagramming what seems like the same cherry trees blooming with a clear blue sky behind it, and it’s confirmed what you already knew – spring is well and truly here. Which, really, can only mean one thing: festival season is coming. And it’s coming fast. But don’t despair, whether you’re a first-time festival-goer or a well-seasoned professional, this is the ultimate guide of what this year’s festival season has in store.
Where: Gunnersbury Park, London
When: 12th-13th July
Headliners: Chance the Rapper, Solange, Giggs, and 2 Chainz
Style: Known as a hip-hop/R&B festival, you want to look effortlessly cool here. Go for comfortable athleisure in high-waist tracksuit bottoms with a crop top. Or, channel your inner Aaliyah and dress like your favourite 90’s legend (á la Jourdan Dunn last year).
Where: Daresbury, Cheshire
When: 22nd-25th August
Headliners: Swedish House Mafia, Duke Dumont, Calvin Harris
Style: An absolute raver’s paradise, for this EDM festival think Cyberdog. You’ll look amazing in anything from mesh to neon, holographic to fishnet. As a general rule of thumb, it’s best to wear less seeing as you’ll be dancing a lot.
Where: Worthy Farm, Somerset
When: 26th-30 June
Headliners: The Killers, Tame Impala, Liam Gallagher
Style: Could we really do a festival guide without mentioning quite possibly the coolest festival ever? Synonymous with quintessential rock and roll style, get some serious inspo from previous attendees like Kate Moss, Alexa Chung, and Sienna Miller. Simply grab your favourite leather jacket and wellies, and you’re good to go.
