Festival fever is gripping the world once again this summer, and at WhatsOn we have created the ultimate global guide to the best fests.
As vital to pack as your tent, sleeping bag and wellies, WhatsOn Festival guide is bursting with all the need-to-know details of festivals happening right across the UK and Europe, America and Asia.
From the biggest and best-known to the most exciting emerging events to add to your must-see calendar, this is your essential guide to it all with over 300 previews!
Not only that, but we have an exclusive interview with the brilliant Bastille, who have already lit up Glastonbury’s Pyramid Stage, and will continue to storm venues throughout the world this year. Fans can get an exclusive insight into their apocalyptic new album ‘Doom Days’, a revolutionary record about the party to end all parties!
Continuing to be at the forefront of promoting progressive values of diversity, equality, participation and solidarity, this bumper edition also sees WhatsOn once again unite with Peter Tatchell – the renowned campaigner and deserved recipient of Outstanding Contributor to LGBT+ life at this year’s British LGBT awards.
In a special report, Peter Tatchell highlights why political, religious and cultural sensitivities should not be allowed to thwart effective sex education in every school. As he says: “Schools should teach that heterosexuality, homosexuality and bisexuality are equally valid.”
As a global publication with its headquarters in Birmingham, WhatsOn categorically condemns the homophobic protests that have been targeting schools in the city, adversely affecting children’s education.
We fully support an overhaul of relationship and sex education guidelines for schools, and the Peter Tatchell Foundation’s 15-point proposal to the Education Secretary for a further review to ensure the sexual and emotional happiness of pupils.
