Fun Festivals in the UK for international students

French Festivals That International Students Must Experience

The fun never stops for international students in the United Kingdom. After weeks of campus rush, festivals are the next big thing to experience. 

Festivals are a fun and exciting way to experience the best of the UK. It’s the ultimate escape from the exhausting campus life and academic worries.

With your heart set in the UK, you can start filling your bucket list with these festivals. Attend these amazing events and have the best fun ever:


Creamfields is one of the world’s largest Electronic Dance Music (EDM) festivals. If you want to dive into electrifying techno-pop and entrancing beats, Creamfields is the event for you.

With famous international DJs on its lineup, ticket prices can be steep. The once-in-a-lifetime experience though is absolutely priceless.

Isle of Wight Festival

The Isle of Wight Festival is a legendary celebration of music and unique moments. For many festival-goers, this event is the summer anthem of September on the South Coast.

The stellar lineup alone makes Isle of Wight a one-of-a-kind experience for students. The festival is even accessible for the disabled. The organizers have staff who will provide assistance, plus disabled access facilities.


Looking for a fun-filled festival with views of the picturesque beach? With the famous Boardmasters festivals, your search is over.

Boardmasters combine enjoyable gigs with surfing competitions. The result is a rare rush of intimate moments and adrenaline-inducing shows.


With stellar acts filling its headline, Latitude is an event that would hurt if you missed it. This festival goes beyond musical acts. Attendees can even swim, paddleboard, or do yoga. 

Latitude is one of those festivals that would leave a lasting impression on you. There would be cabarets and theater acts to complete the set of entertainment.

Reading and Leeds

Ever heard of festival twins? Reading and Leeds is a giant twin festival that’s double the fun and twice the excitement.

Many notable artists such as Eminem and Metallica have dominated their stages before. Musical acts range across various genres and styles.


Fans of indie music would feel like undefeated champions in the Victorious festival. Despite being a relatively small festival, Victorious isn’t short on stellar performances.

Victorious takes place in various areas including the Castle Stage Arena. This will give you a stunning view of Southsea Castle while you party your heart out to the music. 

Green Man

Green Man’s unique identity as a music festival is like no other. There’s no corporate sponsorship in sight, only the captivating view of the Welsh mountains.

Green Man is a lot more laidback compared to the rest in this list. If you’re up for this kind of fun, add Green Man to your list.

Note that each festival has a different lineup of acts every year. You can check out for announcements to see which performers would appear.
