Oh, baby, baby, did you see Britney at Pride?

What was the best festival of the summer?

BESTIVAL
“Music, food, costumes and booze, Bestival 2011 had something for everyone. Attendees this year had plenty of chances to reminisce with the likes of Fatboy Slim, The Cure and Bjork, whilst the younger lot got to enjoy more mediocre performances from Kelis and Katy B (who at one point failed to remember the lyrics to her dub-pop hit, singing “something, something” for a cringing
20 seconds). Although the festival was hit by gale force winds, Bestival had enough weirdness, theatrics and glitter to make up for waking up soaking wet every morning.”
Scarlet McNally

GLASTONBURY
“Walking around Shangri La at 3am on Sunday morning after seeing Pulp, I was exclaiming how catchy their songs were to my friends. I mentioned how their songs were ringing clearly in my head; moments later as I was walking toward Club Dada I realised it wasnt just a song stuck in my head but actually an impromptu live performance by Jarvis Cocker! He was belting out songs to about 500 adoring fans.”
Cai Trefor

OUTLOOK
“While Drum & Bass, Dubstep and Electronica aren’t my usual choice of music, Outlook was a brilliant festival.
Days were filled with beach raves, sunbathing and boat parties, while the nights were spent exploring the old fort of Pula. With its incredible beach atmosphere and beautiful sunsets, I felt that my money was well spent.”
Sophie Moonshine

LATITUDE

“In it’s 6th year, Latitude festival was in full swing on the grounds of the beautiful Henham Park estate this summer. I’ve celebrated GCSE and A Level results here and have had unforgettable weekends there over the last 6 years. The line up this year, though, was some what of a let down. The major headliners were The National, Paolo Nutini and Suede – a selection that felt like a step down from other acts including Franz Ferdinand, Belle and Sebastian and Nick Cave and the Bad Seeds headlining previous years. As always, the festival presented a glittering line up of poetry, literature and film acts, something that seems a unique quality to Latitude. Highlights
for me were Foals who played a relaxed but enthralling set in the Word arena, Dylan Moran who did his best to mock the English in his stand up in the comedy tent.”
Martha Woodward

WILDERNESS
“Picture the most idyllic of English national parks, complete with its own lake and tribe of stags, juxtaposed with a modest but varied selection of musical entertainers and activities for people of all ages; my favourite festival of the summer – Wilderness. Set in Cornbury Park in Oxfordshire, the location ticked all the boxes. By respectfully and appropriately building an ethereal nether realm into the landscape, the organisers ensured that just waking up in the morning was a magical experience. Despite lacking in standard ‘hippy fest’ Hare Krishna free food, the Michelin star banquets certainly pleased those with a few more pennies than us mere students. The rope swing into the lake was also a particular favourite for many, only heightened for us by the stunning view of three slightly confused stags silhouetted a few hundred metres from the water. But for me, what really made Wilderness my favourite festival of 2011, was the sea of friendly faces whose glee when jigging to Toots and the Maytals was later cemented in a collective contentment as Laura Marling performed and gave us a gorgeously uncharacteristic rock hand.”
