With summer hinting at its late arrival this past week, it can only mean one thing – festival season is finally here!

Hundreds of thousands of people will pack their tents, don their wellies and head to some of the UK’s most famous party destinations for long weekends without showers, fruit or a proper night’s sleep.

From Glastonbury, to T in the Park, Reading & Leeds to Bestival there’s enough dates on the calendar to please every rock, pop, dance and indie aficionado.

Recently Guardian music critics Alexis Petridis, Kieran Yates and Tim Jonze discussed their first festival experiences and talked about the best acts to look out for in 2013.

If that’s not enough to get you excited, we’ve created a Spotify playlist which features songs from some of our favourite acts performing at events over the next few months.  Happy listening!
