Since Secret Garden Party was not organized anymore and Glastonbury took a break, they left the place for other amazing ones to be in the spotlight, so here are the top ones for the festival goers and attendees.
- Strawberries & Creem, Cambridge
An explosive one-day celebration of grime and house, it brought a dose of nostalgia and glitter this year. Its average age was 24 and it had a massive line-up with rap star T-Pain and Grime as main artists, bringing an urban glam to Cambridge. Going off with a bang for the fifth year running, the small event brought RnB and house artists alongside to Haggis Farm, on the three stages. The country charm worked perfectly in combination with the music scene at the sunset, while the bass blasted across the sound system. Kojo Funds warned at one point that he was going to bring the building down, although he was on the outside. The House Gospel Choir brought, as well, a classic and contemporary mix, which felt just right in the atmosphere.
- Curious Yellow, Essex
With its quirky acoustic unplugged sets, located in a gorgeous setting, this festival certainly brought a touch of the unknown in the lives of the attendees. It was held in a mysterious sculpture garden and promised a weekend in the wilderness where you were able to wander off to the castle’s ways. Therefore, you could listen to the DJ’s while enjoying quite an intimate vibe.
- Wireless, Finsbury Park
Featuring J Cole, Migos, Stormzy, and Lil Uzi Vert, it has become hip-hop’s big weekend, with one of the youngest crowds. At Wireless, the massive three-day festival brought along also artists such DJ Khaled and Giggs who kept the energy levels high up at all times and made grime rule the roost. These big names of urban music have filled the lineup over three days and determined Chance the Rapper to state at one point that Wireless had the “coolest crowd I’ve played to”. There was a strong inclination towards rap and hip-hop and it provided a great opportunity to enjoy the relaxation areas and music stalls in the daytime.
- Detonate, Nottingham
Over the years, the unmissable one-day electronic festival has been housed by Nottingham’s oldest country park, cementing its name as a most reputable music brand. Set in idyllic surroundings in the UK, it proved to be the ultimate bass powerhouse in the Midlands. This year lineup included Bad Company UK, Hype b2b Hazard, and Dimension. Music, party and sunshine were the keywords this year!
