Drum and bass and music festivals. Name a better combination. Seriously, we'll wait...

Few musical genres complement an outdoor music spectacle as well as DnB does. There's just something about high-energy breakbeats and wobbly bass tones ringing out in the warm summer air that really gets us off! No matter how little sleep you've had in your severely under-equipped tent, how bad you smell, or how dehydrated you are, you'll always find a special reserve of energy for raving when a DnB titan takes to the decks. 

If, like us, you're already longing for the 2024 festival season and you fancy yourself a bit of a jungle, breakcore, or liquid drum and bass buff, you're going to want to take note of some of the heavy-hitting soirees coming to a field and/or city near you.

Take the opportunity to secure your place at one of the very best drum and bass festivals going down this year before it's too late, or sign up for reminders to ensure you're first in the queue when tickets become available.

Starting strong, this festival in Amsterdam is all about jungle, DnB, reggae, and dub. The fest is centred around Club Panama, but there’ll also be boat parties that see you cruise around the ‘Dam in style with a belting soundtrack. The Saturday boat party is centred around reggae and dub with a 250 capacity, while Sunday's focuses on jungle with a capacity for 600.

An intimate one, this one united four of the biggest promoters in the genre, bringing tunes to just over 1,000 ravers. This is the festival’s second edition, and sees them teaming up with a string of Amsterdam’s finest coffee shops, which will offer discounts and more over the weekend.

Over 60 artists will head to this beach festival to soundtrack sandy raves and boat parties. Set on a gorgeous beach with turquoise waters, one of the UK’s biggest drum and bass promoters brings almost the entire UK DnB scene with them for your raving pleasure.

Or, if Portugal is too far for you, DnB Allstars also brings a festival to London this year. 

This one brings an army of drum and bass artists across seven stages, with plenty of massive names but also some up-and-comers, so you can discover the hottest names of tomorrow. Over one hundred artists have been booked for this one, so chances are there’ll be more than enough artists to check out for most kinds of DnB fans. 

This London festival is looking unreal. The only problem you might have is deciding which sets to check out. Our thoughts go out to any punters worried about clashes at this one. But still, it’s going to be incredible.

2024 lineup: Sub Focus, Camo & Krooked + Daxta, Delta HeavyA Little Sound, Basstripper B2B Sota, and more

Celebrating 15 years in 2024, Rampage is brilliant and one of the best festivals in Belgium. Rampage brings over 300 national and international DnB and dubstep artists to over seven stages this year and it’s going to be heavy. 

Alongside the tunes, Rampage brings a game zone, a theme park, a marketplace, a food village, a skating arena, and more on a (likely) sunny July weekend. If you can make the pilgrimage to Rampage, we highly recommend you do so. What’s more, the production value for this festival is absolutely insane, with some of the most stunning light shows and performances that you'll find anywhere. 

Join 20,000 fellow ravers as they celebrate 15 years of Rampage. As one of the best DnB festivals in 2024, you won’t be disappointed.

2024 lineup: Wilkinson, Ewan McVicar, Flowdan, Shy FX, Mungo's Hi Fi & Friends, Oppidan, Serum, Sota, 4am Kru (live), Basstripper B2B Crossy, and more

While Boundary isn't purely DnB, there's a hell of a lot of it on the lineup! With a few stages dedicated to big wobbly basslines, rapid percussion, and skanking crowds, Boundary is more than qualified to call itself a cracking drum and bass festival. 

Boasting an array of some of the biggest names in dance and just at the end of festival season, it’s the perfect final bash before we all go back into hibernation, waiting for another gorgeous festival season.

Balter Festival

Where: Chepstow Racecourse in Chepstow, Wales

2024 lineup: Andy C ft. Tonn Piper, Kurupt FMSota, Gray, A.M.C ft. Phantom, Mandidextrous, Phibes, and more

Celebrating ten years in 2024, Balter has promised its biggest and best edition yet.

Balter is one of the best festivals in Wales and has been consistently praised for its friendly atmosphere and tendency to attract those who just want to escape into the music and don’t care what others think while they do it, which makes sense as “balter” means to dance clumsily. 

There's plenty of variety on Balter’s lineup including techno, rock, bassline, jungle, and DnB, with a stage dedicated to drum and bass. The lineup for 2024 is looking gorgeous. Check out who else was announced - HERE

2024 lineup: Emily Makis, Sammy Porter, Benny Page, Deekline, Ed Solo, Catching Cairo, Solah, Lottie Jones, and more

This super intimate, independent festival brings DnB, breaks, jungle, dubstep, and house to just 1,000 ravers over in north Cornwall in 2024. Alongside the tunes, there’ll be circus and burlesque acts to create a unique experience. 

The fest has every intention of staying small, preferring that intimate feel. But despite the festival’s size and the pretty big names that play there, tickets are much cheaper than you might expect.

While Illusive isn’t entirely drum and bass - there's also some UKG, breaks, techno, and hard trance - there are always some boss names from the genre on its lineups. For example, last year, the fest had Bryan Gee, Chimpo, DJ Hybrid, Vandal, Mozey, Nicky Blackmarket, Hype & Randall, and more, making for a solid choice of DnB over the weekend.
