Music Blog: Three Family Festivals to Visit this Summer

Now that my niece is getting a little older, she’s starting to really enjoy having little days out. She also seems to really like her music and being outdoors (as proven by many instagram stories with her).

Last year we went to Timber Festival and as soon as we left she was asking to go back!

But Timber isn’t the only family festival worth a visit…

Three Family Festival to Visit this Summer

Bluedot Festival

Just So Festival

Date: Fri, 16th Aug 2019 – Sun, 18th Aug 2019

Location: Rode Hall Cheshire

Just So is an annual, intimate, weekend-long festival – an imaginative outdoor family adventure like no other and the best family festival in the UK. With a love of stories and childhood escapades at its heart, Just So Festival enables families to step out of their day to day lives and into a wonderland of world class literature, arts, theatre, dance, music, comedy and creative pursuits together. Underpinned by the Tribal Tournament, the most bonkers competition in the land, it takes audiences (from bumps to great grandparents) on a unique expedition of mischief and mayhem, to lands full of magical midnight feasts, curious creatures, hidden retreats, top notch food, drink and boutique camping options and breathtaking beauty.
