Multiple Swn festivals in Cardiff. It’s just in local venues and in a city I live in, so I can sleep in my own bed every night. Perfect for a lazy man who hates camping.

Only counting full weekend festivals here

17 ATPs
2 Leeds Festivals
2x Porto Primavera, 1x Barcelona Primavera

Then a few that we’ve only done once:
SXSW
Iceland Airwaves
Way Out West
Bilbao BBK

I’m sure that there’s more, but I can’t think of them all right now.

This for me too.

Always good fun. Whitby is always the best, town festivals in general are the best partially cause it’s nice being indoors and the bar is a normal price.
