Storyline

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.

Funny and Cringeworthy
14 August 2018 | by PadreviewsSee all my reviews

Good plot , good script , typically funny lines you'd expect from an inbetweeners type movie with a touch of American Pie. An enjoyable film that will be equally popular when it transfers to the amazon prime type small screen .

There's a few cringeworthy moments but it will hit home with its target audience of festival goers and students and their parents too .

Worth a watch but not a huge mistake if you wait for it to come to the small screen .

Pad.A 6/10
