Which festival has the best weather?

I don’t care what people say – bad weather can ruin a festival experience. That’s why I haven’t been to Glastonbury for years!

Average temperatures Latitude in Suffolk and the Cambridge Folk Festival are set to get the mercury rising to 20.3 degrees Celsius over at Latitude, while Cambridge is expected to enjoy a baking 21.6 degrees Celsius.
