A festival is an event, usually attended by the unwashed masses and hippies.

Mainly a festival serves as excuse for crappy rock bands like Athlete and that utter prick Pete Doherty to make a lot of money for doing fuck all.

It is compulsory not to wash for one week before attending a festival. And hippies must always have a grimy joint pressed between their filthy, yellowed fingers.
Hippy: I'm going to a festival this weekend.
Me: I trust you have not washed recently then.
