Skiddle: The UK's biggest guide to summer festivals

The history of the modern music festival started with rock and indie gatherings, with Reading Festival, Glastonbury and the Isle of Wight Festival all powerhouses that are still kicking forty plus years since they first started. It's often these festivals which spawn the stars of tomorrow's charts.

Since then they've been joined by a fair few others, with hard rock monoliths like Download, celebrations of new talent in the form of Dot to Dot and collisions with pop such as British Summertime among the many options for guitar fiends and rock nuts.
