Dubbed 'the family friendly festival for forward thinking music fans', Blissfields has since 2001 been matching peerless line ups with incredible entertainment for all ages, something few festivals manage to achieve with as much finesse.

A whole host of future icons have joined the festival in its 16 year lifespan, giving the first festival headline slots to Bastille and Everything Everything, while Dizzee Rascal, Mumford & Sons, Sam Smith and Clean Bandit have all joined. Watch last year's highlights below.

 

This year the festival has The Bizarre as its the theme, and will star indie, dance, and leftfield pop outfit Metronomy, 'Queens Speech' freestyler Lady Leshurr, Radio 1xtra's Sian Anderson, grime crossover ensemble S4U, as well as Dub Pistols, Sundara Karma, The Japanese House, Bonzai, The Upbeats, Delta Heavy and INSIDEINFO, with a huge spread of everything from the forefront of bass music to wonky pop covered.

The festival will also feature free hot air balloon rides, actual toilets in place of portaloos, a Victorian Funfair, and the Festival Kidz Gold Award winning Angel Gardens, which mixes fun with interactive learning for kids. Head here for Blissfields tickets
