This weekend thousands of revellers have made the journey to the Isle of White by bus, car, train and of course ferry. This is because Rob Da Bank throws what is widely regarded by many ravers as one of the best festivals in the UK…aptly named Bestival. This also bookmarks the end of the festival season, leaving many scratching their head wondering what to do now?
If like me your starting to feel those summer blues…here’s some ideas:
- Plan a holiday! So if you have any cash left after the summer months why not look at getting away to party abroad? Especially if like me you’re gonna be stuck with the dreadful British weather! My current tip would be Barcelona. A great vibrant city with great weather, plenty of sights, fantastic restaurants and most importantly a great clubbing/rave scene! The trip doesn’t have to cost an arm and a leg either. Cheap flights from Ryanair or EasyJet and accommodation in some of the cities lively hostels will keep the costs down whilst also increasing the social aspect of the holiday!
- Make use of the great nights out on offer in the UK! We have a great rave/party culture in the UK with some truly great clubs and events on throughout the year (not just the summer!). Why not plan a weekend to a different city and book tickets to a great music event? My tip would be Bristol and it’s notorious underground club Motion. Bristol is a great arty city itself with plenty going on, coupled with the great events thrown by Motion this would definitely be a weekend to remember if you haven’t been before. Tickets are normally around the £15-20 mark depending on the event and also how in advance you book. Another recommendation would be Leeds with Mint Club and The Warehouse being my top picks.
- Go to Winter Events/Festivals! Kind of similar to the suggestion above, but why not go to an dance music event such as Boomtown Winter Gathering and West Fest.
- Hibernate! Hey, if all else fails and you can’t fight that summer come down then just admit defeat and see how many series you can binge-watch on Netflix until Summer’17 comes round!
Hope these tips helped…leave a comment below of what your plans are to defeat those summer blues 🙂
