ODEON says...

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.

Well, it's definitely better than The Bad Education Movie, but that's not saying much. The Festival had some crowdpleaser but heavily relies on "shock reaction" which is evident. Mainstream British Comedy at its current state seriously needs a shakeup.

Mud, piss, beer

A sort of road movie, from graduation to the festival, meeting new friends and losing others along the way. Sums up everything about festivals: mud, piss and beer ... Watchable. From Film 4.
