GoldCoast Oceanfest, North Devon, 16th-18th June
My personal favourite, I always keep my date open for Oceanfest. This year the line-up will include greats such as Kaiser Chiefs, Sigma and Scouting for Girls. Every year thousands flood not just for the beautiful beach-side venue and outstanding performances but also the exhilarating surf, action packed sports, locally sourced food and family‑friendly fun.
