UK Music Festivals Summer 2021

Holly Eliza Temple

Spring is here, the days are getting longer and brighter, and restrictions are set to ease on outdoor gatherings in the coming months – which means one thing for many: festivals. Arts and music organisations have suffered greatly with all events cancelled for much of the past year, but this industry is resilient and determined to bring live music back into our lives. Keep reading for a rundown of some of our favourite festivals returning to outdoor spaces for 2021. 


End of the Road, Dorset
2nd-5th September 2021
A diverse indie music and arts festival dedicated to being eco-friendly and family-friendly, End of the Road is back for September – after last year’s festival was postponed, End of the Road have brought back many of last year’s artists as well as promising exciting new line-ups for their cinema programme, workshops and comedy stage. The festival even houses the increasingly popular Healing Garden, with practitioners providing soothing activities for mind and body during the festival experience.

Visions, Hackney
7th August 2021
Taking place across multiple venues around London fields, Visions returns for a one-day festival in August for its eighth year. The festival, brought to us by promoters Rockfeedback and Bird on the Wire, celebrates an eclectic range of music, arts, food and drink – including the Visions Dog Show! Previous years’ line ups have included Idles, Squid, Katy J Pearson, Black Midi, as well as DJ sets and after parties. 
First release tickets are available for £25.00 here.

Isle of Wight Festival, Newport
16th-19th September 2021
Isle of Wight Festival is back, allowing us to see off the summer amidst a spectacular line up of popular music this September. Bringing back last year’s promised acts as well as new surprises, we can expect live performances from headliners such as Lionel Richie, Duran Duran, as well as Seasick Steve, Kaiser Chiefs and Razorlight – with more to be announced. There are even travel deals to be found with train and ferry providers, making the short hop across the Channel as smooth as possible.
