We've curated a list of festivals fit for any student up and down the country. From shoestring student budgets to blowing your freshly dropped maintenance loan on VIP weekend tickets, we've got something for everyone.

Here's a just a handful of festivals we've got for you with exclusive student discount tix:

Field Day

Field Day is back once again for 2019 with a fresh new venue and a line up to match. After departing from Brockwell Park the festival has found itself in possibly the coolest location yet - Meridan Water.

With 10 acres of outdoor space, four warehouses with a 10,000 capacity and with no residential areas nearby, Field Day can party late into the night. 2019 looks set to be their biggest and best outing to date. No restrictions, bigger capacity and partying all night long, nice.

Kendal Calling

Kendal Calling is the Lake District's best worst-kept secret. This independent boutique festival, whilst small, punches far above its weight from it's curated line ups to the production, atmosphere and all round vibes.

Maybe it's the eclectic mix of artists, bands and DJs providing the perfect balance between rock, indie and dance, the idyllic location of Lother Castle grounds or the value for money (3 nights for £139!) that has got us excited for Kendal Calling.

Eastern Electrics

Born out of London's warehouse party culture, Eastern Electrics have evolved from concrete floors into grassy fields as this festival has grown to become a staple for clubbers looking to indulge in a diverse line up of fan favourites and the next generation of up and comers alike. 

Now entering its seventh year, its aims to keep alive the traditions and culture of electronic music continues at its home in Morden Park located just a stone's throw from central London.

Abode In The Park

From the party promoters themselves, ABODE In The Park is back once again for a full day of electronic music. Famed for Ibiza-styled events, ABODE's annual festival is the ultimate way for house music fans to see off the summer. 

Expect top DJs, curated by ABODE's friends and esteemed clubbing brands.

Wild Paths

Wild Paths is a brand new city-wide music festival launching this year in Norwich, taking over all of the city’s best-loved music venues for three days in October, showcasing an eclectic mix of emergent and established artists.

The fest kicks off of the evening of Friday 18th October until Sunday night, with a pre-festival warm-up party at Norwich Arts Centre on the evening of Thursday 17th!

Wild Paths will bring artists of national and international notoriety to Norwich whilst shining a spotlight on the city and the local talent that resides there.

Cocoon In The Park
