It’s sunny (for now at least) and festival season is fast approaching, so this week’s plump ‘n’ juicy Time Out Magazine is stuffed to the gills with tasty festival goodness. We’ve got a 40 page festival guide, which includes chats with MIA and Joe Mount from Metronomy, headliner Top Trumps, the songs you’re going to be hearing everywhere this summer, eight great far away festivals, 16 corkers in Europe, 34 bangers in the UK and 16 close enough to get the tube home. It’s going to be in-tents (groan).
Festivals not your (sleeping) bag but still want a holiday? We’ve got a guide to the Caribbean’s hottest islands which will have you drooling into your rum punch and a chance to win a trip to one of them! Elsewhere in the mag we’ve got an interview with the mighty Alex Turner ahead of the Arctic Monkeys’ gigs in Finsbury Park this weekend, we search for London’s best music venue, delve into the world of ‘graving’, find London’s best Caribbean food, go behind the scenes at Heathrow Animal Reception Centre, bring you the best of Chelsea Fringe Festival, tell you where to go party over the Bank Holiday, have an exclusive chat with Ai Weiwei and find London’s top ten late bloomers. Phew!
