Our hearts were slowly breaking this weekend as it dawned on us that Glastonbury weekend was here and we were not there. There was a gap where the chill up the back of ours neck, the damp in ours bones, the paint smeared across ours faces usually were.

But never fear! We’re here to remind you about some of the other great things going on about the planet in this fallow year. From straight festival-to-festival swaps to pop-up treats and exhibitions to get exploring while Worthy Farm grows it’s grass ready for us to come hurtling back next year.

Glastonbury is more than just a knees up – it’s also an informative, challenging place that drops knowledge bombs like it ain’t no thing. So why not put on a Thinking Cap courtesy of those brilliant Merrimaking gals, stock up on other festival supplies like their watermelon bumbag or which ever animal hood fits your fancy, maybe pop on some glow in the dark welly decorations and get yourself festival ready to hit a brand new beat.

So, here are our 10 best…fests…
