Boardmasters, set on the sea down in Cornwall, puts almost as much focus on the afterparties as the actual festival. Eton Messy, Bronx Cheer, Joe Hertz et all will take to Walkabout and the Fistral Beach Bar for a big old dance. See you there, yeah? More info here.

Lovebox

Taking place on the Friday and Saturday nights after the headliners have finished, you might want to stick some seriously comfortable shoes on before you head to Lovebox's after-party - because it'll be HUUUGE. More info here.

Electric Beach are super secretive when it comes to revealing basically *any* details about their after parties, but what we do know is they go down at the Koola Club and Chy Bar, usually involve a big time DJ and require a VIP ticket package to get in. More info here.

South West Four

Eric Prydz and Nic Fanciulli will be DJing at South West Four's afterparty, which promises to involve a lot of shape pulling and some seriously good vibes. You might wanna crack the sunscreen out for this one though, 'cos it goes down on August Bank Holiday and it's gonna get haaaat. More info here.

Sold? See you front row.
