The sound of your summer: Big tunes from the best acts hitting Herefordshire festivals in 2016

We’ve got Lakefest. We’ve got El Dorado. We’ve got Nozstock.

Even Craig David’s all over our boink.

Summer 2016 is shaping up to be the best musical moment in Herefordshire since Mott became The Hoople.

So with news last week that El Dorado will complete the holy trinity – bringing a much-needed bunch of all-star DJs and urban acts out from the bricks to the sticks - we jumped on the Spotify 1s and 2s to knock out this MASSIVE playlist featuring beats from the top names playing the three Herefordshire festivals this summer.

Taking in everything from Jungle to Basement Jaxx, it’s hosted in Spotify below.

Guaranteed to have your head nodding or your money back.

Also, scroll down for three under-the-radar tracks we're tipping to go big on the Herefordshire stages this summer.

 

 

Here's a little something from three of the lesser-known names set to grace the Eastnor stage at El Dorado and Lakefest - that are among our picks for Song of the Summer:

 

Elf Kid - Golden Boy

 

 

Blonde feat Karen Harding - Feel Good (It's Alright)

 
 

 

The Coral - Miss Fortune

(Okay, so The Coral are pretty well-known - but their new stuff isn't)
