In the wise words of R.Kelly, after the show comes the after-party - and if you're looking for somewhere to go to kill your festival blues and pull even ~more~ shapes, look no further than our pick of the 8 best after parties.
Parklife Festival announced their after-party series Afterlife earlier this month, taking place in shed loads of venues all over Manchester. The likes of Chase and Status, Armand Van Helden and Steve Lawler will be taking to the stages, it's likely to be absolute carnage and you probably wanna get hold of a ticket before they go. More info here.
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.
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.
For the VIP and weekender tickets at Sundown Fest, you're treated to exclusive after-show performances from all sorts of big names - and the opportunity to attend a pre-event party, too. Amazing. More info here.
Electric Beach Festival
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.
