One of the UK’s most exclusive festivals is back! Blissfields Festival, held in a meadow in Winchester, UK, draws some of the best electronic and dance acts, including the likes of Metronomy, Cinematic Orchestra and Lady Leshurr.

The intimate festival has a capacity of just 5,000 people — so you can really enjoy being one of the lucky few to attend. The festival is known for its wacky themes — and this year is no different, with the theme ‘The Bizarre’. So expect crazy installations, costumes and a lot of glitter!
