Hands up who’s ready to go out OUT? Oh yeah, I hear you. After months of lockdown, we’re sure you’re all ready to party like it’s …well, NOT 2020.

And after months of being cooped up indoors, who isn’t desperate to get outdoors?

While nothing is guaranteed, the Government has said it’s planning to scrap all social distancing measures by 21 June, which is giving us hope that some outdoor festivals will go ahead this summer.

Sure Glasto 2021 has already been cancelled, but organisers of many other festivals say they’re optimistic they’ll still go ahead this year.

Which festivals will happen in 2021?

Some festivals are still taking a wait-and-see approach, but a few say they’re definitely almost certainly 100 percent guaranteed (all things being equal) going to happen.

One of the first is family-friendly Latitude at the end of July. Tickets are on sale for a line up that includes Snow Patrol, Bastille, First Aid Kit and Lewis Capaldi. You’ll have to hurry if you want to glamp, most of the luxury camping options are already sold out.  BOOK IT HERE !
