Salut!

We know, we know. It's been raining this week and UK festivals are hit and miss when it comes to the weather. But where else can we have so much fun together?

We are all for taking the risk and buying tickets because... music, silly, marvellous, educational goings on, tasty food, campfires, nature, friends and family and sometimes belting sunshine on top... What's not to love?

Enjoy these selections from the app.

Have a nice day!


Latitude Festival

Suffolk
July 18-21

"Nice and relaxed," says this dad. We are reliably informed that there late-night parties can found, but if that's not your bag, take the kids to see a well known band or two, admire the colourful sheep – and check out the comedy, says this dad.

Camp Bestival

Dorset
July 25-28

The biggest, most epic child-centric marathon with bouncy castles, go-carts, fairgrounds, face-painting, a Breastival Mother and Baby Chill Out tent, TV personalities and top acts (this year Nile Rogers & Chic, Jess Glynne and The Human League) is recommended by a mum of 2.


Green Man Festival

Brecon Beacons
Aug 15-18

So much fun to be had en famille in the Welsh valleys. The Little Folk area lures in under-12s for enchanting workshops and this year's aquatic theme, The Lost City of Atlantis. Elsewhere, there are workshops and bubbles, roaming bands, processions and music (lots of music) among a sea of general creativity and food trucks.


Cornbury Festival

Oxfordshire
July 5-7

As English as egg and cress sandwiches. A family-friendly, polished, professional event for adults and their kids features a circus theme and heaps of kids' and teen activities. Headliners The Specials and Beverley Knight take to the stage on the Friday to launch the party. The Hairy Bikers run a pop up wood-fired restaurant. Recommended by a mum.

Campo Sancho

Stevenage
July 25-27

A small festival with a big heart, home to one of the most artful production teams in the bizz. The team are adding to their kids ents by giving tweens their own tent of programmed activities. This is a big weekend party (read, rave) for anyone who can't be bothered to haul tents too far from the car, with friendly folk and great sound. Recommended by a mum of 2.


Into The Trees

Sussex
Sept 13-15

"All about the trees," says this Kinfo app review. In fact, there is much more besides: games, workshops, canoeing and such like, all within the glorious Ashdown Forest. If you want to know more read their Beginners Guide. Day tickets are available at the crazy-good price of £15.


Shambala

Northamptonshire
Aug

Dress up in headwear that resembles bowls of fruit, or bodysuits made of neon lycra, then plaster glitter onto any piece of bare flesh... And as for the kids, expect "wild and wonderful" activities says one dad. This includes sandpits, crazy golf, a creche, and a whole load of fun (see here).


Elderflower Fields

East Sussex
May 24-27

The first, recommended festival taking place encourages us to "disconnect with technology and reconnect with nature." Magicians, a mass family picnic, a kids' music take over, archery, water sports, pond dipping, beach rugby, hot tubs... the list goes on! Recommended by a mum of 2.


Port Elliot Festival

Cornwall
July 25-28

All roads lead to Cornwall this summer for an arts and literature heavy festival. Families can book the kids into a 3-hour forest school session (£27 p/p) for a break and then enjoy all of this. "Most excellent," says this keen mum.
