Parklife (11-12th June) 

Kicking off our festival season line up is one of the North's biggest events, Parklife.

Headlining on Saturday are The Chemical Brothers, Ice Cube and Stormzy, while the New Wave stage will see Kaytranada spinning the decks. 

If you live for urban beats, head to the BBC Radio 1 Xtra stage, where acts like Kano, Lethal Bizzle, Yungen and Elf Kid will keep you in the pit all day. 

Taking the spotlight on Sunday's main stage is the UK's grand master of grime, Skepta. Sure to be a knockout, this is a performance you don't want to miss. 

Glastonbury (22-26th June)


Possibly one of the best known festivals out there, music lovers from all corners head to Glastonbury. Leaning towards indie pop, this year's main stage will host Coldplay, Adele, and Muse. 

Head over to the Sonic stage to see Idris Elba spin the wheels for a party mash up, while Example and Fatboy Slim will be keeping up the dance vibes. 

With 11 main music stages and over 40 other music and entertainment tents, Glasto has something for everyone.  

Wireless (8-10th July)

If grime and urban music is your thing, Wireless is the fest for you. 

The London based event makes the capital proud with this year's line up, featuring acts like Big Narstie, Kurupt FM, and Calvin Harris on the opening night alone. 

Saturday will see some huge performances from Future, Krept & Konan, A$AP Ferg and Chase & Status. But you're gonna want to stick around for Sunday, with BBK, Section Boyz, Newham Generals and Young Thug, your biggest decision will be which stage to hit first! 

Boom Bap Festival (29-31st July)

The UK's only dedicated hip hop festival, Boom Bap is now in its fifth year, unleashing the best line up of urban artists to the fields of Midlenhall, Suffolk. 

With veterans of the UK & US scenes, as well as fresh newcomers, streetwear, exclusive merch and vinyl, this fest is a hip hop head's dream. Acts this year include Earl Sweatsirt, D Double E, and Ivan Ave. 

Reading/Leeds (26-28th August) 

The dual rock festivals take place at both Reading and Leeds, same acts, different places. 
Featuring some of the biggest names in music, R&L is definitely worth a look.  

A$AP Rocky, Red Hot Chili Peppers and Biffy Clyro will all be making an appearance on the main stage this year, while Travis Scott, Yung lean, Rude Kid and Bugzy Malone make waves on the Radio 1 Xtra stage.  

Creamfields (25-28th August)

Creamfields has always been the number one destination for dance lovers, featuring some of world's biggest acts and DJs. 2016 sees the festival raise the game with the opening of the 'Steel Yard'.

A huge indoor stage, the Steel Yard will feature moving LED panels in the ceiling that move and change colour when acts are on, making for one mind blowing show. Performances from Avicii, Pete Tong, Will Sparks and Chase & Status will have you dancing long into the dawn. 

Bestival (8-11th September)

The final event on the festival countdown won't disappoint. On the Isle of Wight, Bestival catches the last of those summer vibes. 

2016's festival sees Eskimo Dance land with a massive takeover, bringing together Wiley, Section Boyz, Chip, Big Narstie, Newham Generals, Frisco, P Money, Elf Kid, AJ Tracey, Jammz, Fekky, Logan Sama and Maximum (*breathes*) together for the mother of all showdowns.
