Beautiful Days 2023 Review

** Tickets now on sale for 2024 **

Festival Kidz have been staunch followers of Beautiful Days for many years, and have many visits under our belts. But for my family, it was our first ever experience of the festival. I’m a huge Levellers fan and Beautiful Days has been on my radar since its very first incarnation. It was hard to believe it had taken me 20 years to actually get there! Thankfully, it proved to be everything I had hoped for.

Beautiful Days 2022 Review

Beautiful Days 2013 was our first ever family festival. Way back when we were a family of four and still in need of nappies, buggies and all the other paraphernalia of very small children. The fact that I now spend my summers going to multiple festivals and reviewing them here is testament to how much we enjoyed it.

Best festivals for kids

festival kids in a field somewhereHere at Festival Kidz we’re always asked ‘what is the best family festival’? It’s almost impossible to answer as so much depends on what you are looking for out of a festival. What are the best festivals for kids? For some parents, it’s all about the line-up, whilst others seek relaxation and reconnecting with the great outdoors and their loved ones.

Whatever you are looking for, our Festival Kidz writers all agree on one thing. When the kids are happy, you’re happy.

So what do the real critics, our own children think? We asked them!

Beautiful Days 2019 Review

Beautiful Days is without a doubt a top contender for best weekend of the year. This goes not just for my family, but for thousands of its loyal patrons.

Every year the Levellers host an amazing festival that I think is impossible to out do, and yet it continues to improve. We have been to six Beautiful Days now as it is so brilliant for families. Indeed it is good for every age group, and I would have just as good an experience (although different) with or without children.

People are always asking us which festival is the best!

There’s no easy answer to this as everyone has their own favourites.

Festivals have such a broad reach these days. There really is something for everyone. Do you want luxury or basic facilities, indie or world music, laid-back or party central?

So before you dive in and buy tickets…

Beautiful Days 2018 Review

Beautiful Days

The first time we went to Beautiful Days in 2011, we knew we’d found a very special event. This was our fifth Beautiful Days, and it is still our favourite place to be.

We had such a lovely welcome as we approached the information tent, the guy that runs it (I can’t believe we don’t know his name yet) called out, “You’re back!”

We were indeed back at Beautiful Days and everything was as it should be. Read more…
