Great British Music Festivals – Edith Bowman
‘Festivals have always been a big part of both my personal and professional life, and over the years I’ve experienced so many amazing moments which I’ll never forget. From the hidden gems of the overgrown forests of Latitude to the sanguine sights of the Glastonbury Tor as dawn breaks through the clouds, there are so many things to see and do throughout the year at music festivals across the UK. Music, art, performance, and some of the most fantastical sites you’ll ever witness – the UK festival scene is more than just about the music and it is developing with every passing year. Attending festivals today isn’t just about checking out your favourite band or a hot new artist: it’s about discovering arts you never knew you were into, genres of music you never knew existed and being part of an experience you will simply never forget.’
In Great British Music Festivals, Edith Bowman packs her wellies and braves the unpredictable weather to explore some of the country’s best- and lesser-known music festivals. From the muddy fields of the Black Mountains in south Wales, to the warmer climes of the Isle of Wight, Edith travels the length of the UK in the search for the ultimate festival experience. With detailed guides and histories of the most celebrated musical events in the UK – including Bestival, Greenman, and Latitude – this is the must-have book for both the seasoned festival-goer or anyone looking to have their first festival experience.
