3. Womad, Charlton

There can’t be many more feel-good events than Womad (stands for world of music and dance), when artists, musicians and dancers from across the globe have a big ol’ knees-up.

This version in Wiltshire’s Charlton Park includes musos from Pakistan, Norway, China and more playing traditional and contemporary tunes. Plus, of course, there’s the chance to get stuck into all sorts of cuisines at the world cookery stage. Runs July 25-28.

4. Green Gathering, Chepstow

It’s all in the name at Green Gathering, a congregation of eco-warriors, eco-worriers, sustainability campaigners and those who just like being at one with Mother Earth.Taking place August 1-4 in Piercefield Park, Chepstow, it’s run entirely on renewable energy.

Expect solar-powered stages, organic food trucks, ethical trading stores and mystical healing tents, plus lots of acoustic guitar sets. Get those Birkenstocks ready...

5. Bestival, Isle of Wight

Fancy dress fan? You’ll love Isle of Wight’s Bestival then, where face paint, fairy wings, fake moustaches and the like are practically compulsory. Elton John and Snoop Dogg are playing – would love to be a fly on the wall at that backstage meet. Better still, there’s hopes that a giant inflatable Lionel Richie head will be installed for punters to party inside (check out Hungry Castle’s Kickstarter page).
