It’s Festival season and whether you’re into music, art or sport there is a festival for almost every occasion. With so many around the UK, this year could be the perfect opportunity to take a week off and do a festival marathon. So, if you could get a week off, what festivals would you attend? We’ve devised a festival plan for those facing that exact dilemma.
Even if you don’t own a car, you don’t have to miss out, with short term insurance cover at InsureDaily, you can be covered to drive a friend’s or family member’s car. Temporary Car Insurance Cover is also brilliant for those who want to travel with a large group but don’t have a big enough vehicle. If you know someone with a larger car, you can take out a policy to be covered to drive their car. Policies last from 1 – 28 days, perfect to last you the length of festival season.
So pack up the family, grab some friends and head to Lancashire for our first stop.
FLYDE’S ROCK & ROOTS FESTIVAL (18th June)
Flyde’s Rock & Roots Festival, a 4 day ‘family friendly’ music festival. Acts like the Repeat Offenders and Twisted Romance will be performing. It’s a cheap day out, costing £10 for an adult and free for anyone under the age of 15. A nice quiet and relaxed introduction to the week and for good measure too, as your next destination is a sports festival.

HEADLANDER FESTIVAL (20th June)
After that physical workout, the Headlander Festival is perfect for those looking to sit back and groove to some smooth jazz or rock out if you just can’t contain yourself. Think you’re a musician? Maybe you’re travelling with your band? You can enter the battle of the bands event and win yourself a spot to perform on the main stage the following day. But, you’re too busy for that; you’ve got places to go, festivals to see.

2 DAY GAP
Unfortunately even festivals take a break. But that doesn’t mean you have to. It’s a long journey between this festival and the next and you pass some great cities along the way (Nottingham, Oxford, Swindon, Bristol, Bath), maybe even detour (London, Reading, Bournemouth), why not visit these iconic cities?
GLASTONBURY FESTIVAL (24th June)
Round off your week with Glastonbury, one of the UK’s most iconic festivals. Foo Fighters, The Who, Kanye West are just a few that will be performing. This is a memorable experience and a fantastic festival to end on.
Worthy Farm, Pilton, Somerset
That brings a close to your week of festivals; the only thing we can’t help you with is how to get back home!
