Following years of living with the Covid-19 pandemic, it's reassuring to see life starting to return to normality, and of course, music festivals are a staple of the summertime.

The pandemic had a devastating impact in many ways, especially on the live music and entertainment industry, which has seen many musicians unable to perform and earn a living.

This meant the cancellation and postponement of numerous festivals and gigs, with some going online, and a fair few returning later in 2021.

Glastonbury has been delayed since 2020 and there was only Live at Worthy Farm, the BBC's retro coverage, and festival family camping on Worthy Farm to tide everyone over. As for 2022, Glasto's final ticket resale takes place on Thursday, March 24 for coach tickets and Sunday, March 27 for regular tickets.

However, if you're not lucky enough to nab yourself tickets to Worthy Farm, then Digital Spy has compiled a list of the very best summer festivals you can still buy tickets to.

There are also some smaller gigs listed, which might be a good option while you ease yourself back into normality, along with some international options which might be worth exploring if you want to loop your plans in with a holiday.

The most important thing is doing what makes you feel safe personally, so enjoy our pick of the best line-up posters, along with where you can buy tickets, so you can decide for yourself.
