As a massive music fan, I thought it was only fair that I put together a round-up of all of the music festivals in 2013, that you’d be a fool to miss out on.

I know that money is sometimes very tight, so I have added a festival for everyone, with a mix of music genres and what’s available for your budget.

Make your year one to remember with the hottest festivals around – they’re so awesome, they’ll blow your mind!

The music line-ups are even better than ever! There’s going to be mosh pits, crowd surfing and fucking amazing music!

What else could you ever ask for?

THESE ONES ARE FOR THE HIGH FLIERS – FOR THOSE WHO HAVE SOME CASH STASHED AWAY!
