Bring on Festival Season! The 405's Guide to 2014 Music Fests

Glastonbury love

As music obsessives, we think there aren’t many things better than seeing your favourite band live. So when summer approaches and we have the opportunity to catch a whole heap of great acts and possibly a few rays of sun at the same time, that’s pretty exciting!

Festival season kicked off already in the US with desert-based extravaganza Coachella, but the UK’s world-famous run of outdoor live music is about to get started in earnest. With so many events lined up, it can be a little bewildering to figure out where to start, but The 405 have it sewn up with their 2014 festival guide, and they’ve made playlists for each festival lineup exclusively on Rdio.

Look ahead to May and June to check out The 405’s picks of the festivals coming up. Get revved up for the festivals you plan to attend or get inspired to make a ticket purchase for the likes of Field Day and Isle of Wight Festival:

Alternatively, explore the playlists and recreate the vibe (with less mess) in your own living room! There are even options further afield such as Roskilde or Bonnaroo, for those hardcore enough to make the trip abroad for great live music.

With the whole summer stretching out before us this is just part 1 of the festival guide, so be sure to check back for more. Follow The 405 on Rdio to explore their taster playlists of the key festivals this summer.
