Big Chill

Eastnor Castle Deer Park, Herefordshire; August 5-8

Chilling. The very word may send your flesh a-creeping with visions of Merlot-quaffing, yoga-bunny quasi-Buddhists, but let’s face it, festivals are one of the few times we get to cut loose. Big Chill weaves an ever-expanding web of calm, with venues in London and Bristol as well as their annual weekender. Helping you unclench those furrowed brow muscles will be Roots Manuva, Mr Scruff and Zero 7 while Tinie Tempah, dubstep hero The Bug and dance legend Andrew Weatherall be picking up the pace. But not too much.
