Big Chill Festival

Growing from a word-of-mouth celebration of mind-bending downtempo music for 700 like-minded experience seekers to the globally recognised 35,000 plus festival it is today, the Big Chill’s 16-year legacy makes it something of a national treasure on the Brit festival circuit.

Arguably fresher than ever in its musical make-up, the open-minded gathering still invites plenty of horizontally inclined, bifta beckoning beats but now packs in plenty of late-night rave naughtiness thanks to names like Layo & Bushwacka, wonky Bristolian beatsmith Joker, Toddla T & MC Serocee, genre-crossing coverstar Redlight, a selection of top dollar drum & bass talent from Hospital Records and techno futurists Seth Troxler and Jamie Jones.

WHERE? Eastnor Castle, Malvern Hills, Hertfordshire 

HOW MUCH? £155 adult weekend tickets, £120 student weekend tickets, £60 teen weekend tickets, £70 Sunday day ticket
