If you're anything like us, you'll already have started looking through countless line ups and festival web pages in search of our perfect summer party for this summer.

We all know about V Fest, Leeds and Reading and of course Glastonbury, but there are so many other smaller festivals that get overlooked by so many!

Did You Know There’s An Awesome Festival For Surfers Who Love Motorbikes?

Whether you're a hippie type, looking for your festival soulmate (see End Of The Road), an city dweller looking for a London date (you'll love Citadel) or a party animal looking for the baddest weekender of the summer (head towards Truefest), we've got the festival for you!

We’ve put together a list of awesome UK festivals, from better-known bonanzas to the tiny events that are just starting out.

By the time you’ve finished reading this we promise you’ll be hovering over that ‘pay for weekend ticket’ button…

Bestival

festibesti

Ok, this isn't exactly a small unknown festival, but that doesn't make it any less magical.

For the last few year's Bestival has been making itself known as the festival for a party.

From fancy dress carnivals, to the world's biggest discoball, to a giant Lovebot and an enormous bouncy castle for tipsy grownups, this festival is basically the place to go to pretend that the outside world doesnt exist.

This year the island is hosting Major Lazer to kick things off, followed by legends The Cure on Saturday night and a hip hop vs. dancehall finale  with Wiz Khalifa and Sean Paul on the last night.

This year's theme is the future, so dust off those shiny silver leggings and book your ferry trip to the island of fun....

Truefest

This brand new festival is sure to be a banger.

Launched from some of the people who created another festival close to our hearts Troyfest, Truefest is a mad three day house party in a country mansion.

Think dancing till sunrise, running through flashing corridors and finding some amazing new music to  take home. This festival is for anyone who cares less about what's in vogue and more about covering themselves in glitter and having a blast.

This year's line up is a mix of funk, reggae, hiphop, blues and anything else you can shake your tail feathers to.

If you’re not convinced just yet, did we mention that its also one of the only UK festivals with it’s own swimming pool?….We’ll see you there.

SunFall

This weekend, London is hosting a totally new festival.

Sunfall is a festival with a difference. With a line up spanning many genres, your ticket not only gets you entry to the festival itself, but also to your favourite act's after party.

There's Jamie XX, Kamasi Washington and Benji B making up the after parties, just to name a few!

IF you fancy trying a different type of festival, this is the one for you. But be quick, with only two days to do, it's very nearly sold out!

Citadel

From the people who bring you Wilderness festival, Citadel is a fun packed day of awesome acts in a magical oasis in the middle of our capital city.

Held in the massive Victoria Park, you'll be amazed at how much you feel as though you've been dumped into a country festival site, once you've entered through Citadel's gates.

This year's line up includes Gogo Penguin, Lianne La Havas, Caribou, Akala and Submotion Orchestra, before the days big finish with the Icelandic giants Sigur Ros rounding off the event.

As well as the frankly amazing musical line up, you can explore food, theatre, fashion, sports and much more throughout the entire day. It;s gonna be awesome!

Boom Bap

Think festivals are all hippies in hemp and guitars around the campfire? You are so wrong.

The awesome Boom Bap fesitval is a weekend of 100 per cent hiphop. We're talking a weekend of Skepta, Early Sweatshirt, Foreign Beggars, The Four Owls, Homeboy Sandman and more.

All of this, with the usual beer tent, campsite, late night DJ sets you can expect of any festival! Amazing.

End Of The Road

festieotr

End Of the Road had been dubbed the musician's festival and you can see why. Year after year, the weekend brings line ups that make you sit back in awe, and this year is no different.

With Cat power, Joanna Newsome, Animal Collective and Teenage Fanclub heading up proceedings, you can see why the tickets are flying out so fast.

End Of The Road's charm has to be experienced to be fully appreciated, everyone who has seen it agrees that it is the friendliest and most enchanted festival of the summer!
