Festival season usually involves two emotions, happiness and the absolute fear of missing out. Last weekend the majority of us were at Body&Soul, Glastonbury or Awakenings having the times of our lives. The rest of us sat at home feeling sorry for ourselves while watching live-streams and poor-quality Snapchats or Instagram stories.
To help you feel like you haven’t completely missed out this summer we’ve compiled a list of five festivals that could still be a possibility for July, if you haven’t already made plans.
We’ll kick things off with something local. Longitude has curated an incredible lineup for it’s fifth year returning to Marley Park. Catering for everyone with a broad range of genres, this year’s Longitude really isn’t to be missed. House & techno acts are scarce when it comes to who has already been announced with The Martinez Brothers being only headliner to fit the category, but are an act that would probably sell out Marley Park on their own. We also have no doubt that Longitude will put together a huge local lineup. You can check out details on the event and grab a ticket here.
Next up we head to Leeds as Sven Vath brings his esteemed Cocoon label to the grounds of Temple Newsam for the 9th year running. Cocoon in the Park sees huge headliners that are no strangers to any of us including the likes of Adam Beyer, Joseph Capriati, Richy Ahmed and of course the man himself, Sven Vath.

The 14th and 15th of July see Lovebox bring an enormous dance lineup to London’s Victoria Park. Acts like Jamie XX, Frank Ocean, Annie Mac and DJ EZ headline while Fabric‘s stage sees acts of just as high a calibre with the likes of Bicep, Seth Troxler, Dixon and Ricardo Villalobos on the bill.

Beginning as a hard-hitting techno festival back in 2007, Welcome to the Future has now developed into a festival that caters for everyone. Located just outside Amsterdam, this year sees a great lineup once again. On the techno side of things we see big names like Dave Clarke, Chris Liebing and Joran Van Pol while some huge house acts also fill the agenda with the likes of Jackmaster and Kerri Chandler. You can check out details on the event and grab a ticket here.
Finally we head to the Cambridge for the last ever Secret Garden Party. Widely regarded as one of the coolest parties on the planet, the final installation sees plenty of familiar names join the lineup including the likes of Jackmaster, Eats Everything and George Fitzgerald.
