by 8Ball T Shirts May 10, 2016 0 Comments

It’s that time of the year again! Music lovers up and down the country will be trying to squeeze their sleeping bag back intoits case, fishing out and dusting off their wellies and heading off to their favourite music festival. From the tweeny pop favourites to the classic rock gods you will be guaranteed to find your all-time favourite act performing somewhere at some point this summer.

To celebrate the start of festival season and to help those of you who are yet to choose where to check out this summer, we bring you our top five music festivals from across Europe, from the elaborate to the downright dirty we have a festival just for you!

1. Isle of Wight Festival

The Isle of Wight Festival is the place where some of the all-time greats take to the stage to do what they do best. The Festival itself dates back to 1968 but it’s revival as Rock Island in 2002 is what makes it one of the UK’s top festivals each year. If you choose to head down to the four day event (June 9 th-12 th) you will encounter The Who, Queen and The Stereophonics, just to name a few! This is the festival for you if you want to guarantee rock royalty at every turn.

2. Secret Garden Party, Cambridgeshire

With an abundance of elaborate props, staging and decoration the Secret Garden Party is not one to be missed. Where else in the UK will you be able to see glitter-clad gardener’s dancing the day and night away dressed to the festival’s 2016 theme – Gardeners of the Galaxy. The music on offer reflects the vibe on the 100-acre site, headliners Primal Scream will see that you end the four day spectacular (July 21 st-24 th) on a high. Other acts to feature at the festival include The Temper Trap, Band of Skulls and Izzy Bizu.

3. Reading and Leeds Festival

The Reading and Leeds Festivals are THE places to be for all rock music fanatics. The more senior Reading festival is the world’s oldest popular music festival. With its famous Bottled Off tradition taking down many a headliner (Good Charlotte, Panic at the Disco and the unfortunately named The FF’ers have all felt its rath) it definitely is the real music lover’s festival. This year’s headliners include a small band known as The Red Hot Chilli Peppers as well as Biffy Clyro, Imagine Dragons and Fall Out Boy.

4. Sziget, Budapest

For those of you wanting to see the best that Europe has to offer you should head on over to Budapest. Set on an island in the Danube, this festival allows you to “ruin” pubs before catching the river ferry to the seven day spectacular (10 th-17 th August). The style of music varies over the week from local acts to some of the biggest international acts in the world including Bloc Party, Muse and Noel Gallagher’s High Flying Birds.

5. Secret Solstice, Iceland

Nowhere in the world knows how to celebrate mid-summer quite like Iceland. This is the country where local folklore would have you believe that elves come out to party and if they do – you should too! The Secret Solstice offers you a weekend of music (17 th-19 th June) with this thought in mind. The headliners include Radiohead, Of Monsters and Men and The Deftones it isn’t known as the world’s most unique festival for nothing!

Now that the Christmas adverts have started, we’ve finally entered the festive season. This may mean that it’s time for Christmas songs, manic shopping, and cold weather. The good news is that it’s also time for classic movies on TV. To celebrate this we’d thought we’d look at where the actors of yesteryear are now. But not the Bruce Willis’ and Macauley Culkins, but the secondary actors we loved.
