The Best Festivals of the Spring Bank Holiday Weekend03 May 2019
With the flowers back in bloom, the sun putting his hat on, and all our summer outfits regaining their pride of place at the front of our wardrobe, there’s a lot to love about May. And that’s not to mention the two whole bank holidays we get! The second, known as the Spring Bank Holiday, is jam-packed full of events, marking the start of the festival season for the year. It can be a little tricky to know which one to choose, so we thought we’d share some of our favourites.
All Points East
Although 2019 is only its second year, All Points East has already firmly established itself as one of the major players in the festival circuit. Taking place in London’s Victoria Park, this year brings some big names to the capital, including The Strokes, Hot Chip and James Blake. Get a great deal on your ticket with a Festicket discount code, find yourself somewhere to stay with one of our great Hotels.com voucher codes and you’re all set to enjoy this vibrant new festival without breaking the bank. There’s a wide range of genres on offer at All Points East, so this is a great festival if you love a little bit of everything! Plus, you’re in London, so you’re sure to find a good afterparty somewhere.
Dot to Dot
Now celebrating its fifteenth year, Dot to Dot is a vibrant city festival with a focus on up-and-coming rock and pop acts. Taking place over 3 days, in 3 different cities around the UK, this eclectic event sees Manchester, Bristol and Nottingham all opening their doors to a wide range of exciting new artists from all over the world. The best thing about Dot to Dot is that you don’t need to worry too much about clashes. If you miss an artist you wanted to see, just grab a Trainline discount code, jump on a train and catch them in a different city the next day!
Sea Star Festival
When a bank holiday weekend comes around, there’s no better opportunity to jump on a plane and visit some warmer climes. Croatia’s Sea Star Festival offers you a music festival and a summer holiday rolled into one, with acts performing just a stone’s throw from the gorgeous azure waters of the Adriatic Sea. Grab a cheap flight from TUI and a sweet deal on an AirBnB and get ready for the weekend of a lifetime.
Another great all-rounder, with six sunny stages offering everything from rock and pop to house and techno, Sea Star Festival has something for everyone. What’s more, if at any point you fancy a break from festivities, you can cool off in the sea or take a stroll around the historic nearby town of Umag. Just don’t forget the suncream.
Love Saves the Day
A diverse wealth of music, a community spirit and some undeniably good vibes have made Love Saves the Day a staple in Bristol’s festival calendar. It’s become so popular that it sells out every year, so pick up your ticket with a See Tickets discount code before it’s too late. With some sensational outfits on display, you’re gonna want to look your best for this, and at Love Saves the Day that means bright, bold and beautiful. Think sequins, glitter and all the colours of the rainbow. Why not join in the fun with a patterned playsuit from ASOS and some vintage shades from Sunglass Hut?
