Summer Days

Roger Hodgson, Jimmy Cliff, Manfred Mann's Earthband (Aug 26), The Bosshoss, Texas, Bligg (Aug 27), Sina, Bernhard, Linard Bardill (Aug 28) Despite being in Switzerland, this rock festival is relatively easy to get to – it's roughly a five minute trek from Arbon train station – and relatively easy-going, allowing you take in 500ml drinks (no glass), which saves you a bundle on overpriced water. The lakeside and weather also adds to the lovely atmosphere. The line-up this year sees former Supertramp frontman RH heading up the bill, alongside Berlin country-rockers TB and Swiss pop singer Sina.
