9 faboosh day festivals in the UK if you don't feel like camping

Because, mud.

Most Popular

It goes without saying that we're pretty big fans of the festival scene. From Secret Garden Party to V Festival, if it involves wearing a lot of glitter on our faces and gives us an excuse to have a 150 second long snapchat story, we're keen.

But sometimes the idea of pitching a tent, wearing a plastic poncho and trapsing through mud for three days in a row isn't the most appealing, which is why these faboosh day festivals in the UK are a great alternative.

1. Parklife

Most Popular

Held in Manchester's Heaton Park over two days, Parklife festival doesn't do camping - so even if you go for 48 hours, you'll be able to retire to a comfy bed at the end of it all. This year's line up sees Jamie XX, Major Lazer, Years & Years, Skepta and more take to the stage and we couldn't be more keen. More info here.

2. WILD LIFE

WILD LIFE sees a similar line up to Parklife take to the stage (with Disclosure, Rudimental, and James Bay amongst the big names), but goes down in Brighton City Airport. It was named the Best New Festival of 2015 in the festival awards, and you can find out exactly why here.

3. British Summer Time in Hyde Park

The best thing about British Summer Time in Hyde Park is that it hosts a HUGE array of names, goes down in central London and will see you boogying, shaking and pulling shapes like there's no tomorrow. The likes of Florence and the Machine, Alabama Shakes, Jamie XX and more will be taking to the stage - so what're you waiting for? More info here.

Don't forget to check out the PlayStation Music stage who return for 4th year to British Summertime Festival, showcasing the latest talent in an eclectic line-up of artists that complement each days main stage line ups, including Polica, Rae Morris, Allen Stone, Grace and the incredible Jamie Lawson. Check out Spotify available on PlayStation Music  on your PlayStation 4 or PlayStation 3. For more details on PlayStation Music, click here.

4. Boardmasters

Boardmasters goes down in Cornwall, and if you fancy a day by the beach listening to live music, we couldn't recommend it more. The fact the line up is bloody brilliant helps too - with Sigma, Deamau5 and Kaiser Chiefs already on the bill. Yaaas. More info here.

5. Lovebox

Most Popular

If you're looking for somewhere to throw some serious shapes and have a right laugh for a day, head over to Victoria Park in East London for Lovebox festival. Major Lazor and LCD Soundsystem have already been confirmed, tickets are reasonably cheap and it's meant to be an absolutely insaaaane party. Check it here.

6. Barclaycard British Summer Time

Every year, The Great Oak stage is popped up in Hyde Park, London and plays host to a bunch of HUGE names. Last year Team Sugarscape went to see Taylor Swift there - and this year Florence and the Machine, Mumford and Sons, Kendrick Lemar and Jamie XX have already been confirmed. More info here.

7. Wireless Festival

At this moment in time we don't know very much about who'll be taking to the stage for Wireless Festival this year, but what we DO know is that it goes down in London's Finsbury Park, will be filled with pop and urban vibes and isn't one you want to miss. Check it out here.

8. T in the Park

The 1975, Disclosure, the Courteeners and The Stone Roses (right indie line up, that) will be hitting up Strathallan Castle in Perthshire to do the summer festival circuit this year. Camping is available, but so is a nice fluffy pillow in a hotel room so YOU KNOW. More info here.

 9. Love Saves The Day

Ahh, what would a festival be without Stormzy, Chase & Status, Dizzee Rascal and Hot Chip hitting up Eastville Park in Bristol? This is set to be a seeeeriously good time - the hardest thing will probably be choosing whether you fancy going on Friday, Saturday or Sunday. Check more about it here.

OH GET US TO ALL OF THESE PLACES IMMEDIATELY.
