Virtual Festivals is the home of music festivals on the internet, a lifestyle portal that aggregates the entire music festival marketplace and community into a single website.

As such, the site is uniquely positioned to deliver the most cost-effective and highly targeted brand association and engagement with every music festival in the UK and the millions of fans who attend them each year.

As Google’s top-ranked web domain for music festivals, Virtual Festivals is the most widely-used and highly-regarded site of its kind. Independently owned, it has grown organically since 1999 from a one-man operation into a market-leading dot com enterprise which also operates the UK Festival Awards, the Oscars of the festival world.
