Amazing moments at British festivals

Friday 17 July 2015

Go to a British music festival and you are in for a truly awe-inspiring experience. The sunshine (with any luck!), the positive energy from the crowds, the fantastic music and some seriously stunning settings too. They're not all what you'd expect either: apart from the music talent, you'll encounter everything from elaborate costumes to magnificent on-site architecture, pools and watersports, forest stages and more.

This is why you'll fall in love with Britain's music festivals
