Big or small, loud or quiet, dry or muddy we love festivals whatever their size, sound or likelihood to leave you soaking wet. Over the next 20 pages we'll

give you the lowdown on every major fest hitting Scotland this summer, and information on a few that are farther afield. Plus, see Reader Offers on page 6, and Music Competitions on page 77 for details of how to win tickets for T in the Park, Rock Ness and many more great festivals. Wherever you end up this summer, don’t leave home without us.
