Don't miss Pennfest 2017

Still on the lookout for a summer festival? Maybe you should give Pennfest a look. 

If you've not heard of it, you probably should have, because Pennfest ticks all the important festival boxes. Scenic setting? Yep. It's set in the Chilterns in Buckinghamshire. Big lineup? You betcha. We're talking Primal Scream, The Charletans, The Coral, EMF, Maverick Sabre, Sigma, James, Maximo Park and Cast. Serious!

If you need to wind down a bit, they've got loads of creative workshops. Want to stay wound up? There's an afterparty dance tent with guest DJs.

Best of all, they've got hot showers in the camping area! No more wet-wipe wash. And it's all a stone's throw from London. 

If you fancy it, you'd best get stuck in quick – tickets are in short supply. Pennfest takes place Friday 21st to Saturday 22nd July.
