Top 10: Music Festival & Hotel Packages for Under £150


To those of you in the midst of planning your summer holiday, it can be hard to see how music festivals can muscle in. Unless you're able to combine the two into one trip, they can sometimes seem like incompatible elements for an epic summer that doesn't also leave you bankrupt.

But it doesn't have to be that way. All it takes is a bit of dedicated research, and the understanding that you may need to tighten the pockets a little and surrender luxury for practicality. If that's cool with you, then we've done the research. 

Here are ten European festivals that you can experience, along with accommodation, for under £150. An absolute bargain, if we can say so ourselves.
