The sun will come out tomorrow…at least we hope it will. We can’t wait to be basking in the outdoors showing off some skin and enjoying nature at its best. What better way is there to enjoy the sun than being out with your friends at a festival. These are just some of the festivals we will be heading to this season and we hope to see you there.
Strawberries & Creem
Saturday 16th June 2018
Haggis Farm, Cambridge Rd, Barton, Cambridge CB23 7AT
We are so proud and excited that this festival is now in its fifth year, not only because it is independently run, but because it is run by young individuals with an average age of 24, who are either in full-time jobs or full-time students. With grassroots values as their ethos, Strawberries & Creem showcase some of the best UK talent and this year they are bringing Not3s and Kojo Funds who will make their Strawberries & Creem debuts this year. Along with fresh talent, the festival will also host some old school veterans including DJ Luck & MC Neat, Pied Piper and headliner the original auto tune innovator, T-Pain.
It’s more than just books, soiree and Oxbridge wars in Cambridge. They know how to have a good time and the proof is in them hosting Strawberries & Creem and you can bear witness to this in June. The only sad thing is, it’s only one day.
Thursday 5th – Sunday 8th July 2018
Royal Bath & West Showground, Shepton Mallet BA4 6QN
Probably the liveliest festival on our list, NASS 2018 will bring together over 20,000 music and extreme sports fans at the Bath & West Showground, near Bristol. With live music performances and DJ sets from Vic Mena, Stefflon Don and Bugzy Malone, Eatbrain League x State of Mind b2b Jade b2b L 33 ft MC Nuklear, there are plenty of reasons to head to NASS even if you are not into extreme sports. With an eclectic range of music genres for you to enjoy, the festival is spread over 4 whole days giving you a chance to catch at least one performance from one of the seven stages.
If you want to pull away from the music crowds, you can go and check out the international BMX and skateboard competitions or the live and curated street art taking place and on display over the course of the weekend. To round off proceedings, NASS welcomes back the mighty SIKA Studios who will be running a series of showcases featuring fresh talent in the shape of Jack Jetson, Phatworld, Devilman, Sox + many more.
