6 Festivals You Can Still Get Tickets For

If you’re still in the grips of Glastonbury-induced envy, or seeing everyone’s Secret Garden Party pictures had you longing for a ticket, it’s not too late to squeeze in a festival this summer. SL contributor Amy Wakeham has rounded up her top six boutique UK festivals you can still get tickets to – just don’t hang around…

Electric Fields

In the beautiful grounds of Drumlanrig Castle, Scotland, Electric Fields has everyone from Frightened Rabbit to Dizzee Rascal playing this year. It’s not all about the music though: there’s also a real ale festival, fairground and a well-stocked food market. Plus, check out their boutique camping options: yurts and bell tents are available for a weekend under the Scottish stars.

Drumlanrig Castle, Scotland; 1st – 2nd September

End Of The Road 

One for serious music buffs. End Of The Road was founded with a promise to book the bands the organisers love, and present them in a way that respects the music and the audience. This year, Father John Misty, Mac Demarco and Bill Callahan are headlining, with comedy acts, film screenings and literary talks also taking to the stage. What’s more, it’s all set in the beautiful grounds of Larmer Tree Gardens, which has been recognised as an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty.

Larmer Tree Gardens, Wiltshire; 31st August – 3rd September

Festival No. 6

Music, culture, food and activities come together for the unique Festival No. 6. Based in the Mediterranean-inspired coastal village of Portmeirion in Wales, the festival is held in venues across the town. An immersive experience, Bloc Party, Mogwai and The Flaming Lips are topping the bill this year. It’s unlikely, but if you get bored of the music then Irvine Welsh, Adam Buxton and Nish Kumar are all making appearances, too.

Portmeirion, Wales; 7th – 10th September

Houghton Festival

For lovers of electronic music, this is a must. A weekend specially curated by DJ Craig Richardson, the festival is a three-day extravaganza of art and music in the grounds of Houghton Hall in King’s Lynn, Norfolk. Set in thick woodland around a lake, there’s also art and sculpture on display by selected artists, and spontaneous, back-to-back DJ sets are encouraged.

King’s Lynn, Norfolk; 10th – 13th August

Leopallooza

If you like your festival with a side of Cornish charm, look no further than Leopallooza. Self-styled as “the greatest house party…in a field”, the festival is based close to the coast in idyllic north Cornwall. With an irreverent and informal feel, this year it’s hosting The Cribs, Maximo Park and Gabrielle Aplin, plus a BBC Introducing stage.

Week St Mary, Cornwall; 28th – 30th July

Standon Calling

Standon Calling sets up shop every year in leafy Hertfordshire, and this year’s theme is ‘Tales of the Enchanted Valley’. As well as top-class music from Clean Bandit and Grace Jones, there’s a costume parade and competition, plus lots of comedy and cultural happenings on the calendar.

Standon Lordship, Hertfordshire; 27th – 30th July
