Festival Preview: Lowlands

Music Editor Emily Barker previews what is sure to be a killer year at Lowlands festival

With back-to-back sets like this in the last twelve months, it's no wonder Flume is one of the most hotly-anticipated acts at Lowlands this year

This year marks the mighty 25th anniversary of Lowlands festival, and boy have they got a line-up to match. From all over the globe, artists as diverse as Solange, Flume, London Grammar, Alt-J, Bastille and Mura Masa will be convening in The Netherlands in a few short weeks.

Just an hour’s train journey outside of Amsterdam, the festival perches on the edge of ‘Lake Lowlands’, the perfect chill-out spot in between those massive dance sets. Add in some of the Boomtown-esque workshops and performances they’ve got going on, including acrobatics and live comedy, and you’ve got a pretty stellar weekend ahead of you, regardless of your musical tastes.

The Netherlands is also one of the most accessible non-UK festival destinations, with direct, 45-minute flights from Birmingham to Amsterdam, or you can grab yourself a dirt-cheap Megabus from London, which will usually only set you back £30-£40. (Link below.)

There’s no doubt that Lowlands is pulling out all stops for partying in their quarter-of-a-century achievement, join the fun and get yourself a ticket here: http://lowlands.nl/tickets/ or here https://www.ticketswap.com/lowlands.
