Yes, it is that time of year again when the various different festivals based in the UK begin to announce their line ups in a bid to out-do one another and sell as many tickets as possible, making the excitement for summer 2017 amongst UK festival-goers grow by the minute.
The UK festival scene has grown both in size and popularity over the years as they have gradually became a staple component of many people’s Summer, and with more festivals than ever before available to choose from in 2017, which is going to be the best suited for you?
The UK’s largest and most popular festival is of course Glastonbury, and this seems to be the only festival that can sell out immediately without even releasing its line-up, which is expected in the full at some point in the next few months. One act we do know will be gracing Worthy Farm this year however is English rock band Radiohead, who have been confirmed as headliners on the Pyramid Stage in 2017.
The Oxfordshire rockers will also be making a headline appearance at the brand new Glaswegian festival ‘TRNSMT’, which many people are seeing as the replacement for T in the Park after it was confirmed not to be taking place this year. Radiohead join an impressive line-up for TRNSMT, which includes Biffy Clyro, Kasabian, Catfish and the Bottlemen and The 1975 amongst many more acts.
Elsewhere, we have been treated to a large portion of 2017’s Reading and Leeds line-up, which includes Kasabian once again, along with Muse, Korn, Bastille and Two Door Cinema Club amongst others. Smaller festivals such as Kendal Calling and Parklife have also revealed their line-ups in full, and with others such as Ynot Festival and Glastonbury in the pipeline, it will soon be time for festival-goers to make their final decision and book!
