Want big bands, but without the classic British weather? Too poor for Benicassim or Heineken Open’er? Well then, Jersey Live (1-2 September 2012) is the festival for you.

Jersey Live started off in 2007 as a small festival on the Channel Island of Jersey and has grown into one of the most widely attended boutique festivals in the world. It’s already attracted some huge names for a festival still in its relative infancy, including dance rock titans The Prodigy, who I can personally admit brought one of the best shows Jersey has seen, as well as indie rockers Kasabian and kings of ska Madness. This year, the line-up yet again is not one that will disappoint, with headliners in the form of Noel Gallagher’s High Flying Birds and commercial dubstep heroes Chase and Status (pictured at top).

The headliners, though, aren’t the only attraction. While there may not be any camping, the small size of the island means that hungover morning sightseeing trips are popular, to attractions like the world-famous Durrell Wildlife Conservation Trust and Jersey Zoo, or the island’s many beautiful sandy beaches.

The event has a capacity for 10,000 people, so don’t expect a barren festival site. Instead at Jersey Live, there is a variety to entertain, including a great silent disco and a dance tent which has year after year kept the party going long after the music stops.

The acts joining the headliner aren’t to be sniffed at either, with Brighton born Rizzle Kicks, Eminem lite Professor Green, veterans Primal Scream and crooner Maverick Sabre adding heft to the bill.

Tickets are still on sale, with £92 for a weekend ticket, £58 for a single day ticket, while hospitality tickets will set you back £205. There is discounted entry for concessions available. For more information on festival tickets, visit Jersey Live’s Web site.
