Either you spent all weekend in a tent at Glastonburyhaving the best time of your entire life or you spent all weekend on the couch watching Glastonbury wishing you’d been less of a cynical bastard when all your friends said they were splashing out on tickets. Either way, you’ve got the festival bug and would like to go to one ASAP please.

We’ve picked the best of the bunch that you can still get tickets for.

The one that’s as close to Glastonbury as you're going to get - Green Man


This one’s got a similar vibe to Glasto; circus stuff, fusty dudes with dreadlocks and kids, but it’s much, much smaller and hence about a million times less stressful. The line-up reads like a 6Music addict’s wet dream; First Aid Kit, Caribou, Daughter, The War On Drugs, Polica, East India Youth, and Woman’s Hour. Ticket are £159, £135 if you’re a student.

Aug 14-17, Glanusk, Wales

The one to go to if mud’s not your thing - Unknown


What’s better that sitting in a rainy field listening to music? Sitting on a beach doing the same thing. Unknown sees the like of Chvrches, Clean Bandit, Forest Swords, London Grammar, Jamie XX and Disclosure play on beaches and boats under the hot Croatia sun. Tickets are £129.

September 8-12, Rovinj, Croatia

The one to do if festivals aren’t really your thing - Lovebox


Less of a festival, more two days in a park where you get to go home inbetween. Lovebox is pretty much perfect in the fact that you can get the tube there and back (providing you live in London) and nothing kicks off until after 12PM. Get ready for MIA, A$AP Rocky, Annie Mac, Nas and Katy B. Friday tickets are sold out but you can still get Saturday (£60.95) and weekend ones (£99.95).

July 18-19, Victoria Park, London

The one that’s right up your shamefully middle class alley - Wilderness


Food, ace music, costumes, yoga and talks from people you look up to this one’s pretty much what would happen if The Debrief created a festival. Although probably a lot more ramshackle, disorganised and shambolic. Don’t ever come to our festival is we’re stupid enough to organise one hmmkay? Anyways, Jessie Ware, London Grammar, Metronomy and Slow Club are playing, Angela Harnett and Russell Norman of Polpo are cooking and Irvine Welsh is talking. Tickets are £151.50.

Aug, 7-10, Cornbury Park, Oxfordshire

The one named after a 16 year old boy - LeeFest


When 16 year old Lee started a festival in his garden when his parents went on holiday he named it, very imaginiately, LeeFest. Now, eight years on, 2000 people attend annually and he’s got artists like MØ, Frightened Rabbit, Dan Le Sac Vs Scroobius Pip and Young Fathers playing. There’s also disco dodgeball, a paint fight, glitter wrestling and erm, a debating club. Tickets are £84.80.

July 11-13, Warlingham, Surrey
