The 2016 festival season’s on its way. Anyone who thinks that enjoying the festival atmosphere and cool bands become a thing of the past once the kids come along, is gravely mistaken. The festivals that you can perfectly visit with your kids are actually on the increase. Littlerockstore selected 3 fun festivals for both you and your children
Wychwood Festival - 31 May-2 June 2019 - Cheltenham
Wychwood Festival transforms Cheltenham Racecourse into a first-rate family festival. This beautiful historical setting has everything you could wish for. The festival has four stages, which have seen the likes of UB40 and Bob Geldof, where it is equally possible to enjoy theatre and comedy. There’s a special day care programme for the very little ones and older kids can join you in taking an all-age workshop!
Camp Bestival - 25-28 July 2019 - East Lulworth
This festival has won the “Best Family Event” award! You can enjoy music, theatre, art and other surprises together with your children against the backdrop of the magnificent Lulworth Castle. A large part of the festival grounds is set up as the Upper Kids’ Garden. This is a place where kids can play to their hearts’ content, where there are shows, go-carts and a special place for even the tiniest visitors. Older kids can enjoy shows, have their face painted and learn to build an elf house.
Does this mean that moms and dads have to be bored? Acts like Fatboy Slim and KT Tunstall have us thinking that they’ll be OK.
Isle of Wight - 13-16 June 2019 - Isle of Wight
The Isle of Wight festival is far from modest in size. This year’s edition features bands like Faithless, Stereophonics and Queen! But if that’s the case, is it still suited for children? Sure, as long as they stay out of the mosh pit! The festival has a real Kids Zone, proving that they’re keeping the next generation in mind. The entire weekend is filled with storytellers, concerts, circus acts, magicians and lots of other children’s shows and activities.
