For live pop tunes and hip hop anthems, V Festival is ideal. Taking place at two UK locations simultaneously, the line-up swaps on the second day so you see all the same acts at both.

From rock to rap and everything in between, Reading Festival has something for all 90, 000 of its attendees. Taking place just outside Reading town centre, it's the UK's oldest music festival that began as an annual jazz festival. Nowadays, it's known for its world-class line-up that was Instagrammed 5,381 times in 2016.

Pilton Farm in Somerset transforms every June into Glastonbury Festival, one of the most iconic music and art events in the UK.

For a dose of UK and international rock, Download Festival is definitely the place to be. With its eclectic line-up of rock and heavy metal legends, it's no surprise that 5,683 photos were posted at the 2016 event. With capacity for 120, 000, it's a haven for both head bangers and less hard-core fans.

Mostly featuring electronic talent with a few grime acts thrown in, Creamfields is one of the most popular UK festivals and takes place in picturesque Daresbury, Cheshire. 70,000 people rock up to its gates each year, with 28, 174 Instagram pics taken during its four-day stretch in 2016.
