Whether you want to listen to pop, house, rock or jazz music, or be part of a carnival or parade, there are free UK festivals to suit all tastes, and most are suitable for families. Just use the list below to pick your area.

Here are a few highlights we’ve spotted among the free festivals still to come this summer:

- Feel Good Festival in Rochdale (including headline act, Feeder - see North West below)
- Godiva Festival in Coventry (with performances from Ronan Keating and Gabrielle - see West Midlands below)
- Youth Beatz in Dumfries (including Rudimental - see Scotland below)

Alternatively, it's still possible to get into some big paid-for festivals, including Reading and Leeds Festival, and Bestival - see the stewarding guide below.

It's worth noting that some festivals are spread across different venues and may have concerts that cost extra, so always check with the organisers before you go.
