What makes Music Festivals so special?

Music Festivals in the UK have become more and more of a tradition for growing numbers of festival goers where you can experience your favourite bands and artists all at one venue. 

There is nothing like the unique atmosphere that you intake whether you are camping for the weekend or just going for the one day. And this year you will be spoilt for choice with a huge range of rock, dance and pop music on offer throughout the year in the South East. If sleeping conditions are not for you then don’t worry as there are several festivals offering ‘Glamping’ which is a more comfortable way of experiencing a festival. Or if you're looking to stay nearby, check out our accommodation listings. Take a look at 2018 event highlights below as we will guide you through the best Music Festivals in South East England.

Produced with love by the creators of Bestival, Common People 2018 is set to kick off the festival season with a proper party this Spring Bank Holiday Weekend in May (26 - 27 May 2018).

This is the festival's 10th chapter with over 100 venues to choose from showcasing a range of music genres and some of most weird and wonderful surroundings in the country.

Portsmouth’s Victorious Festival  (24 - 26 August 2018) certainly wins the prize for best value for money as the now three day event offers tickets as cheap as just £22 a day although with now now camping on offer. the festival set to be bigger and better than ever with over
60,000 festival go-ers last year and even more expected to attend this year. Portsdown Hill Campsite is a family friendly, relaxed campsite located just 8 miles from the festival site and has stunning scenic views. Free Camp and Ride services mean Campers can enjoy the festival experience.
