Hallmark Hotels Guide to UK Music Festivals


The summer is almost here! We are on the cusp of months of sunshine, BBQs, trips to the seaside, candyfloss, cold cider, 9pm sunsets and all the magic that comes with the season.

One of the best parts of summer is that it’s festival season! It’s time to pack your sparkly garms, get your tents ready and head to the nearest field shindig and party with your friends, listen to amazing music and bask in the general atmosphere.

Here is our special guide to the best music festivals across the UK this summer.

Isle of Wight Festival 13th - 16th June 2019

This long-standing festival is taking place in Newport, Isle of Wight and will feature performances from the likes of George Ezra, Noel Gallagher, Lily Allen and Bastille.

Well-known as the festival that kicks off the summer, Isle of Wight always has a great line-up, with a blend of hot acts and up-and-coming stars, along with plenty of other types of entertainment and atmosphere.

The ferries to the Isle of Wight are regular, quick and extremely well-organised. Once you’ve danced till you drop at the festival and it’s time to go home, why not spoil yourself with a proper night’s sleep after the revelling? We have two Hallmark Hotels in Bournemouth, less than 2 hours away.

The ferry trip takes just under an hour and runs late. Check travel information here.

Our Bournemouth hotels offer the perfect beachfront oasis of calm from the madness of the festival, where you can relax, recharge and spoil yourself with good food and revitalising spa treatments.

Glastonbury Festival, Pilton, Somerset 26th – 30th June 2019

Possibly the most iconic festival in the world. Glastonbury has put on some of the biggest acts in the world and is attended by roughly 175,000 people each year.

Glastonbury has been going for nearly 50 years, starting out as a new-age hippy festival, with the likes of David Bowie and Melanie playing. In the 90s it incorporated dance acts like Massive Attack and Chemical Brothers to keep up with the rave scene. Now, the main stage at Glastonbury has seen performances from everyone from the Arctic Monkeys, Blur, Oasis, Jay-Z, the Verve, the Prodigy, Kings of Leon, Florence and the Machine and so many more acts.

This year, the line-up is one of the best yet. You will see Stormzy, Janet Jackson, the Killers, the Cure, Lauryn Hill, Billie Eilish and so many more.

There is an area, a tent or a stage to suit every single music taste and lifestyle. The atmosphere is like nothing on this earth and you are sure to make a lot of new friends and have the time of your life!

Follow up your Glastonbury experience with a night or two to rest and recharge at Hallmark Hotel Gloucester, just an hour and a half from Glastonbury. It’s the perfect spot for a post-festival break; we have a gorgeous pool, gym and spa, super comfy beds in richly decorated bedrooms and a mouth-watering menu in the Hallmark Grill. Just what the body and soul needs after days of tents, loud music, crowds, street food, aching muscles from dancing and probably far too much cider!

Rockprest, Preston 29th-30 June 2019

For rock fans, this family-friendly festival will be showing a whole host of brilliant tribute bands showcasing the music of Queen, Guns N’ Roses, AC/DC, Metallica, Foo Fighters, Nirvana, Black Sabbath and many more.

Sing along, get in the mosh pit and just enjoy a couple of days out in the sun, hearing your favourite rock anthems for the bargain price of £3.90 per day.

Conveniently, Hallmark Hotel Preston Leyland is located just a 7-minute drive from Moor Park where Rockprest is taking place. So, you can party like a rock star then return to comfort and luxury, enjoy the pool and tuck into a plate of delicious locally sourced fodder!

Sounds of the City, Manchester 6th – 13th July 2019

This festival takes place at Castlefield Bowl and is described as a series of concerts in the heart of Manchester.

This isn’t a festival in the muddy-camping-in-a-field sense, so after you’ve enjoyed seeing performances from Kylie Minogue, The Kooks, The Wombats, Elbow and Hacienda Classical, you can head out in the city and enjoy all that Manchester has to offer before retiring to a comfortable bed.

That comfortable bed can be found at one of our Hallmark Hotels in Manchester each offering high-quality accommodation in a relaxing setting. Explore our travel guide to Manchester and get to know this incredible city and what to do there!

Lovebox, London, 12-13 July 2019

This amazing festival is a celebration of the music industry and all of its glorious offerings; from the big names to the up-and-comers.

This year, you’ll see Chance the Rapper, Solange, Cypress Hill (performing their legendary 90s album Black Sunday), Annie Mac, Giggs and loads more. The venue is beautiful, and the atmosphere is electric.

 No need for camping at this festival so head to one of the very chic Hallmark Hotels in London, each around an hour’s journey from the festival site in Gunnersbury Park.

Latitude Festival, Henham Park, Suffolk, 18th – 21st July 2019

This unique festival welcomes people of all ages and hosts an eclectic mix of music, art, theatre, cabaret, and dance. It’s a veritable celebration of the arts!

This year’s headliners include Lana Del Rey, Snow Patrol, George Ezra, Primal Scream, and many others. Other performers include comedians like Jason Manford, Frank Skinner and Marcus Brigstocke, stage shows from the National Theatre Live and dance from Northern Ballet and lots more. A real feast for the senses!

Under 2 hours away is Hallmark Hotel Cambridge where you could book in for a night or two recovery from the fun at Latitude. Sink into a soft warm bed, indulge in a round of golf at our golf course (one of the finest golf courses in Cambridge, in fact) or relax in the pool at our health club.

 

There are many more festivals up and down the UK happening this summer, so be sure to check what’s on in your area so you can make the most of it.
