2010 Summer festivals in Beds, Herts and Bucks

Whatever your musical taste you're bound to find something you like this summer across Beds, Herts and Bucks.

On offer are a range of festivals with everything from world music in Hitchin, to rock in Knebworth and non-commercial music in Bedford.

Make sure you're fully prepared, whether it's grabbing your wellies or just knowing when to put the vino on ice.

Check out our run down of this year's festivals within the three counties:

Festinho, Hinwick House Beds

Money raised goes towards the ABC Trust which improves the lives of street children in Brazil.
