Fesitval Season is about to get underway and it won’t settle down until sometime in the fall … are you ready?? The buzz around line-ups and ticket sales has got everyone scrambling to make plans and find the money to purchase the tickets/passes to ensure no good times are missed. A friend of mine has set his sights on attending at least one festival per month between April and September and the only difficulty I can see in this is deciding which festival to attend and ensuring the pocket book can handle it!
Here are the festivals and dates to the best of my knowledge….
