Festivals & Gigs

One of my favourite topics – what festivals are you going to this summer? Those of you who have been following me from the beginning will know I used to be the editor of an online magazine about festivals. I love live music and spent many years as a gig reviewer and entertainment writer for a newspaper. Over the years I’ve been lucky enough to attend festivals and gigs all over the world and I love to share the experiences with you guys in hopes you will do the same.

Festivals across the world

I love going to festivals abroad and just some of my favourites are Hideout Festival in Croatia, Rainbow Serpent and Pleasure Garden festivals in Australia. I’ve also been to MS Dockville in Hamburg, Germany. This summer I also went to Garorock Festival in France with Ryanair. I would absolutely love to go to Exit Festival in Serbia and Meadows in the Mountains in Bulgaria one day. My ultimate dream would be Burning Man in the USA – anyone want to take me?

I’ve also spent many years going to festivals across the UK and UK festivals hold a very special place in my heart. If you’re looking for inspiration – Secret Garden Party (no longer running) and Boomtown Fair are two of my favourites, I also used to love Glade Festival when it was still running. I have some amazing memories from Wireless Festival and V Festival, and Eastern Electrics was another fave. 

My favourite gigs

When it comes to gigs – Major Lazer, Basement Jaxx and Fat Boy Slim are some of my faves that I’ve seen live. You can check out reviews of festivals and gigs in this section, why not have a browse and see if we have the same taste in music? I love an eclectic mix and will happily move between house and disco club feels, to folk and pop. If you lose me at a festival, you’ll find me at the bass stage!
