Glastonbury Festival 2008

Sunday, January 27th, 2008

Like V Festival and the Carling Festival, Glastonbury Festival will be returning this year and will hopefully be better than ever.

Glastonbury LogoThe festival will happen on the weekend of the 27th, 28th and 29th of June 2008 but to be in with the chance of acquiring a ticket you must register online between the 1st of February and the 14th of March 2008. This is due to a successful system that began last year to combat ticket touting. A good thing when you think how much tickets have been sold for in the past. Last year saw some great acts take to the stage including the Arctic Monkeys and The Killers.

Visit the Glastonbury website in February and register to be in with the chance of purchasing a ticket that will go on sale on the 6th of April 2008. You must upload a photo as each ticket will feature a photograph of the person registered to it.

The V Festival 2008

Sunday, January 27th, 2008

V Festival LogoWhoop … Festival time is approaching! Last years festivals were such a success and I am looking forward to more of the same standard.

The V Festival returns this year on Saturday the 16th and Sunday the 17th of August in both Chelmsford and Staffordshire. According to the website the line up is ‘pretty darn exhilarating’ but it’s being tight lipped on possible acts who will take to the stage this year. Last years acts included the amazing Snow Patrol and The Killers so we hope to see more top acts return!

Tickets will go on sale soon but keep up-to-date with all festival information at the official website.

The Sundance Film Festival attracts millions of film fanatics and celebrities every year. Those not there simply for the festival can enjoy the white powdered mountains that are usually quiet as you like when screenings are happening and the night life which tends to be a good laugh. There are many films premiered at the festival including Assassination of High School President, starring Mischa Barton and Bruce Willis and August, starring Josh Hartnett.

The Sundance film festival is held in Park City, Utah and began on the 17th of January, finishing on the 27th of January 2008. Open tickets sales are available on the day. Visit Sundance online for more information and accommodation.
