    Deer Shed festival in North Yorks is great, particularly if you have kids. Great music, ace beer, loads to keep the kids entertained and always sunny (so far).

    as I mentioned on t’ other thread

    sziget.hu/festival_english

    is brilliant
    5 days, great line up, budapest is a nive place to explore too, flights with easyjet etc means it costs the about same as glasto, the weathers better, its less up its own arse and its a lot more of an adventure

    I’ve done a few of the major UK ones and a few of the major European ones. They’re all kind of similar, once you’re inside the arena, so just pick a festival in a place that you fancy visiting, maybe?

    I was thinking Sziget but there are no “huge” headliners this year. Depends how much you want to spend really 🙂

    I went to festival number 6 in portmeirion. It was fantastic, weather got a bit dicey on the Sunday (it’s a bit late in the year compared to Glastonbury), but I will go again I think. Awesome setting, great variety of stuff going on etc

    Smaller is better when it comes to festivals. Or maybe I’m just a grumpy sod who doesn’t like crowds.

    Rock Werchter in Belgium is always fun.

    Truck, Oxfordshire – Indie rock village fete

    Latitude, Suffolk – Slimline Glastonbury for the Radio 4 set

    End of the Road, Dorset – Great mix of indie, Americana, folk in the beautiful Larmer Tree Gradens

    Beacons, Yorkshire – Undeground bands and art on the Yorkshire Moors, fun

    Festival No6 in Porthmeirion in Wales is one of the best I’ve been to.

    I was there Duggan. Its was very good.
    The Manics were disappointing but that was nothing to do with the festival..

    We didn’t manage to get tickets for Glastonbury at the weekend – but well done to everyone that did!

    Any recommendations for other festivals? We’ve always wanted to go to Glastonbury, but not been lucky enough.

    Has anyone been to Green Man?

    Ynot. It’s small and in the peaks. This year was such a blast and there’s a really good atmosphere.
    Loads of ciders and loads of new fresh bands as well as some old favourites.
    Highly recommend for the grand price of 80 quid each with kids being free if you have them.

    If you really want to go to Glastonbury there is always the returns sale in April

    or else just pick the closest

    Larmer Tree festival is small but great. Just dont tell anyone. 🙂

    +1 for both End of the Road and IoW – both good in their own distinctive ways

    Purbeck Folk is fun. Plus you may get to see the lesser spotted CtBM ragging some new niche bike along the back road to Corfe.

    Quite small compared to many but a unique setting being in/on the outskirts of the village and incredibly chilled atmosphere. Definitely the best festival I’ve been to in years (OK, didn’t make it this year but from what I’ve heard it was much like last year).

    Being later in the year is pretty good too as it doesn’t conflict with anything else either.

    Eden fest is pretty chilled out, too many hippies though and not enough big tunes.

    Went to the Green Man this year. Good site, stayed on the Camper Van field. Was very chilled out. Saw some good bands and lectures but for the price the main stage headliners very dissapointing. The smaller stages much better. All a bit civilised compared to what I remember when I used to go to a lot about 15 years ago. My jury is still out if that’s a good or bad thing.

    no 6 is a poshers fetival–personally like a bit more edge for less wedge.

    Beatherder does for me…..
