Top Music Festivals In The UK To Look Forward To In 2024

Matt Crisp December 29, 2023

It may be the depths of winter, but it’s already time to start planning your summer if you want to get tickets for some of the hottest music festivals around the UK. The choice is bigger and better than ever in 2024, so grab some mates, hire a coach and take in some of these fabulous locations and line ups for a summer of music and fun. 

Glastonbury Festival, Somerset, 26th – 30th June 2024

We may as well start with the biggest and best known of them all, the juggernaut that is the Glastonbury Music Festival. Tickets have already sold out, but there’s another chance to buy returned tickets later this year. The headline acts have not been officially announced yet, but as usual the rumour mill is flying.

According to the Metro newspaper, potential acts this year include Madonna, Girls Aloud, Cher, Bruce Springsteen, Beyoncé and Harry Styles. Last year, Elton John stole the show with his Sunday night headline slot.

Reading and Leeds, 21-25 August

The twin Reading and Leeds events take place over the August bank holiday weekend, and typically attract a younger crowd with a leaning towards indie, rock and rap music. This year, headline acts include Lana Del Rey, Catfish and the Bottlemen, Blink-182, Gerry Cinnamon, and Fred Again..

Isle of Wight Festival, 20-23 June

The Isle of Wight Festival is hugely popular, with headliners The Prodigy, Pet Shop Boys, and Green Day already announced for the 2024 line up. It’s also a great place to visit if you want to combine the festival weekend with a longer break. There are plenty of hotels and holiday parks with sea views and lots of opportunities for outdoor activities.

Latitude Festival, Suffolk, 25-28 July

The Latitude Festival is one of those diverse affairs that’s more of a cultural gathering in pleasant surroundings. Set in the picturesque Henham Park with a lake and acres of woodland, it’s always a summer favourite. Acts confirmed so far include Duran Duran, Kasabian, Keane, and London Grammar.

It’s a family friendly event with activities, wellness retreats, comedy, poetry, theatre and literature, besides some leading music and dance stars.

Download Festival, Donington Park, Leicestershire, June 14-16

The Download Festival is a staple of the heavy metal scene, with this year’s line up including Queens of the Stone Age, Royal Blood, Avenged Sevenfold, Limp Bizkit, Fall Out Boy, The Offspring, Sum 41, and Bowling for Soup. 

Wireless Festival, London, July 12-14

Taking place in Finsbury Park, London, the Wireless Festival is hip-hop oriented, with the line up yet to be announced. Expect to see some of the biggest names in rap, R&B and Afrobeats during the three-day summer extravaganza.
