With the glorious summer in sight, we have been plotting our recreational escapes. This season is brimming with festivals, and with so many to choose from, we've selected our favourite sites for 2015.
Primavera Sound, Barcelona, Spain
This urban and ocean-side festival has a reputation for it's artistic line-ups of pop, rock and underground. With a backdrop of one of Europe's most exciting and creative cities, we're looking out for acts including tUnE yArDs, Thurston Moore Band, Alt-J and Caribou.
Field Day, London, England
Widely regarded as one of London’s best music festivals, Field Day never fails to lure young hip London with a heady combination of iconic artists and current leftfield greats. This year, the sounds of Patti Smith, Mac DeMarco and FKA Twigs will roar through Hackney’s Victoria Park.
