It's almost that time of year again: festival season. A time when Brits notoriously let their hair down in a blur of unadulterated and carefree fun, before climbing back onto the daily grind for the rest of the year...

Line up: Fatboy Slim, Jess Glynne, Dizzee Rascal, Stormzy, J Hus, Clean Bandit and more
Why you should go: This summer marks only the third year of WILD LIFE festival, but with the last two year's being a huge success, this year is set to be one hell of a party. With performances from Stormzy, J Hus and Brighton's own Fatboy Slim, you'll want to get yourself down to the seaside.
Where: Finsbury Park, London
When: 7th - 9th July

Where: Victoria Park, London
When: 14th - 15th July
Line up: Solange, Frank Ocean, Chase & Status, Jess Glynne
Why you should go: What started with Groove Armada and Jools, a box of records and a pack of heart-shaped Post-its...15 years on and the love continues to spread. Held across two days, east London invites you to dance to the finest DJ’s, live bands and be enchanted by art and dance performances. And for you late night owls - the party continues until sunrise across specially selected London clubs.
Where: Henham Park, Southwold, Suffolk
When: 13th - 16th July

Where: Cornbury Park, Oxfordshire
When: 3rd - 6th August
Line up: Two Door Cinema Club, Grace Jones, Bonobo

Secret Garden Party
Where: Abbots Ripton, Huntingdon, Cambridgeshire
When: 20th - 23rd July
Line up: Metronomy, Crystal Fighters, Eats Everything
Why you should go: Secret Garden Party is acclaimed for its immersive experience, both musically and visually. SGP regulars will know that raves in the woods, paint fights and flamboyant clothing are a given, and in the words of the Head Gardener: 'This isn't a festival it's a party.'
Where: Victoria Park, London
When: 19th July
Line up: Foals, Wild Beasts, Bonobo, Laura Marling
Why you should go: Looking for a change to your usual lazy Sunday, then put your Sunday 'bestival' on (tea dress, glitter and a hat?). Dance to music from the likes of Hudson Taylor, and first time performance in London, A Blaze of Feather. Listen to politics, poets and rappers read you the Sunday papers. Indulge in mouth-watering food, from Patty & Bun and Annie Macs To The Future and burn it off on the Spandex Stage, making sure you hit The Cheese Truck straight after.
Isle Of Wight
Where: Seaclose Park, Isle of Wight
When: 8th - 11th June
