THE annual Rhythms of the World festival held in Hitchin has appeared in a list as one of the top music festivals to visit this summer.

The world music festival is featured in The Telegraph’s top 100 music festivals for the summer.

It has also been chosen as the top 20 ‘pick of the bunch’, alongside the likes of Download, T in the Park in Scotland and Isle of Wight’s Bestival.

RotW head of communications Cath Cole said: “To be featured is a major achievement.

“Clearly this would not be possible without the support of our sponsors and of our 800-strong band of volunteers who work hard, not just on the festival weekend but all year round, ensuring everything goes smoothly.

“It’s amazing to see the Rhythms name in lights alongside big name festivals like T in the Park and Reading, yet we are still a family-friendly festival which aims to reflect the strong and diverse culture we find here in North Hertfordshire.”

Taking place at Hitchin Priory over the weekend of July 14-15, RotW will include among others The Damned on The Nettlebed Stage, Young Knives, Don Broco and My Passion on the BBC Introducing Stage and reggae star Junior Murvin, best known for track Police and Thieves, on the Main Stage.

Tickets are now on sale for this year’s festival. Visit www.gigantic.com
