Festival season is almost upon us. Yay! But which one is best for you?

We've sifted trough the hundreds of bashes taking place this summer to bring you a handy festival guide. Here, then, are 33 festivals that carry the NME stamp of approval.

Read on to watch live videos from headliners and find out why each one is worth digging out your wellies…

 
 
 
Mercury Rev

Cambridge; July 22-25

Essentially a massive, brightly coloured playground for people who think fancy dress isn’t a punishment but an opportunity to express themselves, the Party prides itself on being different. Free of branding and full of quirky bastards, it’s easy to be cynical about SGP but it really is a wonderfully light-hearted way to spend a weekend. A warning, though: watching Mercury Rev surrounded by people dressed to theme (this year it’s ‘Fact Or Fiction’) might make you lose your mind.
