Boomtown is proudly advertised as the UK's most immersive and escapist festival! Now in its 9th year, the main stage line-up will consist of ska and party bands from around the world, with the other live music stages offering cabaret, gypsy, folk, reggae, dub and country and western. Enjoy plenty of cabaret, comedy, spoken word, a range of stages, an anarchist theatre, lots of site art and many areas to explore with plenty of catering options!

Our Jurys Inn Southampton hotel is located just over an hour train journey from Boomtown, alternatively – you can catch a coach or drive just half an hour to the festival!

Creamfields 2017 is set to be the biggest and best yet. The multi-award winning dance festival returns to Daresbury in Cheshire with the biggest electronic line up you’ll see anywhere this year.

Shambala, Secret Country Estate, Northamptonshire

24 -27  August 2017

Taking place in a secret location each year, this independent party weekend has won awards for its green efforts, family focus and all round fun times. It’s not often it is recommended taking your kids to a festival, but Shambhala is actively for families just as much as ravers, with kids getting their own fields of activities, workshops, play areas and crèches and even overnight camping adventures.

If you’d prefer to make a family break out of this fun festival, our Jurys Inn Hinckley Island hotel is only a half an hour away, and further afield our Jurys Inn Milton Keynes hotel is just under an hour drive.
