The 2013 Festival Issue of Clash Magazine is out now with all you need to know to get you thrown the season as well as interviews with Jake Bugg, James Blake, Phoenix, The Strypes, Local Natives and a round-up of this year's South By South West event.
The fields are nearly open. The stages are almost set. The festival season is all but upon us. We love this magical time of effortless and mellifluous sociality, when new sounds mix with new friends and you may just stumble upon a new facet of your long borne personality. Or, you’ll drink way too much Strongbow, have an anal prolapse through too much moshing, and wake up with a foul trance crusty inside you. Still hard. It’s festival season. Anything can fucking happen. Here are a few things that certainly will.
Our Festival section includes our Top 10 Festival Moments of 2013, our top 10 Big Festivals, Top 10 Exotic Festivals, Top 10 City Festivals, Top 10 Fledgling Festivals, we look forward to Sweden's Way Out West Festival and kick off our massive competition to win festival tickets.
