When Nick's girlfriend dumps him at graduation, he has a colossal meltdown in front of the entire university. He's convinced his life is over, but his best mate Shane has the perfect solution: three days at an epic music festival. With the help of "festival aficionado" and certified oddball Amy, Shane tries to get Nick to embrace the music, the mayhem and the mud. From the creators of the Inbetweeners comes The Festival, a movie about friendship, growing up, and going mad in a field.
Parts of the film were filmed at Leeds Festival 2017 with actual festival goers being used as extras in the large crowd scenes. See more »
In Nick's bedroom just before he and Shane leave for the festival,
there is a box visible on a shelf with the words 'Global Puzzle.' A few seconds later this has been replaced by a different, shallower box with the title 'Impossipuzzle'. See more »
For the UK release, the distributor removed three sequences of crude and sexual behavior to obtain a 15 classification following advice from the BBFC that the uncut version would likely receive an 18 classification. An uncut version was available. See more »
Awkward, cringeworthy, but very funny!
I went to see this movie at the cinema with my uncle and the opening scene caught us off guard completely but it set the tone for the whole film. It has some really brilliant laughs and nothing is taken too serious.
A welcome escape from everyday life just like going to a festival or similar. A few scenes made me laugh harder than I have to any comedy in the last couple of years. The use of shock tactics and in your face awkwardness (similar to the Inbetweeners) is tactful and yet in abundance.
This movie is what it says it is, a good old solid British comedy.
