Summer is getting nearer, and a select few festivals are up for review as we take to the road to do the festival circuit...some we've been to before, some we haven't, but the aim is to always provide you with a unique view of the festival you won't find anywhere else...well, until now actually!

Virtual Festivals have invited us to review some events for them this year, so you'll be able to catch up on all the latest news and line-up info for these, and in fact any other festival, and get our valued opinion of the festival when it's finished, all in one place...

...but we'll still be focussing on specific acts and sets here in more detail to put together our end of season Ultimate Festival

Events on the agenda initially are below :-

29th May - 1st June, Somerset

This event was cancelled due to bad weather conditions, and has now joined forces with The Big Chill, so everyone with tickets can now attend that event, and get the best of two very good worlds...more details to follow

19th - 21st June, Barcelona, Spain

Urban festivals don't always have the same charm as removing yourself from the hustle and bustle of the city for a weekend, and plonking you and your tent in a field to camp amongst the starlit greenery, but this one breaks all those rules in so many ways. Combining a trip to this fabulous City with the atmosphere and entertainment of a large music event is something we couldn't turn down, and with so much going on in and around Barcelona for the festival week, this event could well get a regular revisit. Full review and gallery of images will appear soon.

Highlights from the intense line-up again include The Orb, Overproof Sound System, Dubfire, Meat Katie, The Dub Pistols and many more still to be announced...

18th - 20th July, Berkshire
