The best UK festivals of 2017

It might not feel like it at the moment with the colder days looming, but it won’t be long before the festival season is upon us once more.  With literally hundreds of festivals to choose from, the team at Hatchbag have shortlisted four which are definitely worth considering.

Festival No.6

A stunning art and music festival held every year in the heart of Portmeirion, Wales, Festival No.6 presents a wide range of eclectic music genres including; rock and roll, folk, house, techno and dance music.

Festival No.6 is renowned for more than just the music. Think arts & culture shows, amazing food and drink to indulge in and fantastic activities, such as yoga, paddle boarding and swimming.

FESTIVAL-NO.6

Green Man Festival

With a tradition for championing great music and even better causes, the Brecon Beacons has become one of the best UK summer festivals going, drawing in crowds from all over the UK.

Undoubtedly Wales’s biggest music event, Green Man is a non-corporate and ethically minded festival that combines great music and echoes the swinging 60’s spirit.

The Good Life Festival

We love this newcomer to the UK festival offering. Part-curated by Cerys Matthews, this festival is a  combination of fantastic folk music, amazing foods to try and activities to partake in, such as pottery classes.

Welsh Sweetheart, Cerys Matthews from Catatonia, curates the event, along with the owners of Hawarden Farm Shop where the festival is held.

If ever there was an event that begged you to switch off and relax, this is it.

Bestival

Originally set up by radio DJ, Rob Da Bank, Bestival is based at Robin Hill Country Park on the Isle of Wight and plays host to some of the biggest names in music.

Year after year, Bestival showcases some of the most amazing musical acts, such as Elton John, The Chemical Brothers and Missy Elliot. Your eyes are also in for a treat as the festival replicates a magical fairytale, with fancy dress and fairground rides to enjoy.
