UK’s top 3 music festivals for 2019
Even though we are entering into the third quarter of the year, there are still some exciting events that are lined up for residents and foreign visitors to the UK. If you love attending music festivals or you intend attending one for the first time ever, the top 3 Music Festivals in the UK list highlighted in this article should interest you.
Coming in at #1 on the list is…
#1 The Glastonbury Music Festival
This is the top ranking music festival in the UK. Each year the Glastonbury Music Festival plays host to some of the top-rated musicians from around the world. Musicians perform on the renowned Pyramid Stage which comes to be a theme of the annual event. This year the music festival will have musical acts from The Cure, Gerge Ezra, Kylie Minogue, Miley Cyrus, Tame Impala, The Killers, Janelle Monáe and Stormzy.
While this year’s artists are bound to put up one hell of a show that you should not miss, there are other aspects of the festival that makes it quite unique. For example, the Shangri-La, a district known for its nightlife activities including theatre and high volume electronic music.
If you are a die-hard raver, then the Arcadia is the place to be during this festival. Other side attractions at the festival that will be held at Pilton for five days from the 26th of June to the 30th of June include; a circus featuring magicians, trapeze acts, drag queens and top comedians.

While there are very few pleasures better than playing the best phone games around. However, if you want a bit of fresh air at a scenic British countryside, then you may want to consider attending the Latitude Festival. This festival is ranked second on my top 3 UK music festival list.
The Latitude festival holds for four days in Southwold from the 18th to the 21st of July this year. Experience outdoor fun this summer with the family. There will be a massive children play area with fun rides, inflatable toys, clowns and dance troupes to entertain.
