Top Family-Friendly UK Music Festivals To Book For 2023

Matt Crisp April 18, 2023

The celebrated UK festival scene is back with a bounce in its step in 2023, after the many cancellations and disappointments of the past few years. There’s no substitute for that feeling of euphoria and togetherness that listening to some soaring tunes in the open air can bring. 

While some of the smaller and more niche festivals sadly fell by the wayside during the pandemic and the subsequent economic turmoil, there’s still plenty of choice and something for all musical tastes and audiences. Here’s a guide to some of the best family-friendly festivals to book this year. 

Latitude, Suffolk, 20-23 July

The Latitude Festival at Henham Park in Suffolk has carved itself a reputation for being a well-rounded cultural event. As well as a great musical line up including Pulp, George Ezra and Paolo Nutini, you can expect to find poetry readings, art installations, and handmade food stalls aplenty. 

It’s a family friendly event with specially prepared kid’s activities and even a lake where you can learn how to paddleboard. 

Wilderness, Cornbury Park, Oxfordshire, 3-6 August

The Wilderness Festival is another eclectic and family-friendly event where you can enjoy the best of indie and alternative music as well as high-brow performances from the Southbank Centre and the RSA. There are swimming lakes, catering tents full of world cuisine, and some intriguing off-menu performances for those who are willing to look. 

Green Man, Brecon Beacons, 17-20 August

The Green Man Festival is worth attending for its beautiful location near Crickhowell in south Wales alone. As you might expect, there’s a real focus on nature and a chilled out vibe. Musically, it’s geared towards indie rock and alternative, and is a real musician’s festival with late night jamming sessions around the campfire. 

Bluedot, Jodrell Bank, Cheshire, July 20-23

If it’s a unique festival setting you are after, then the Bluedot Festival will tick all the boxes. The Lovell Space Telescope dominates the site and sets the mood for a weekend full of adventure, curiosity and learning. Featuring in the line up this year are Roisin Murphy, Grace Jones, and Max Richter. 

For those who like their music with a side serving of science and comedy, then you can’t do better than this. There will be keynote speakers from the world of space exploration, biology and physics, plus loads of family friendly exhibitions and workshops. That’s not all, because there’s also award winning arts and cultural acts and events, plus top quality food and drink. 

Love Supreme, 30 June to 2 July, Glynde Place, East Sussex

For lovers of funk, jazz and soul, the Love Supreme festival in East Sussex is the place to be. This year’s line up includes Grace Jones, Candi Staton, Little Simz, and Thundercat. There’s more focus on the music than some other festivals, but there is still a kid’s area, an outdoor pool, a chillout zone, and lovely countryside walks all around.
