Big festivals may be headliners, but sometimes the event that's perfect for you might be found in the smaller ones this weekend. It's more intimate, interactive, and immersive to begin with. It was never about the size that matters, but how the fest has made an impact on you that counts.

Here are the top five boutique festivals you should show up.

We Are Fstvl, Upminster, Greater London (May 26-28). We Are Fstvl happens to have lots of pop-up bars, tents, and activities for guests to enjoy. It promises to be one of the greatest events to rock it like a house party. The biggest names to hit this year's festival are Craig David presents TS5 and Carl Cox, among many others. Elsewhere, you can camp at the site and relish goings-on like its Burger Bear Disco Factory, We Are Pillow Fight, or the tall ball pool.

The Great Estate, Scorrier House, Cornwall (June 2-4). Set near the Cornish coast, this garden party is a juxtaposition of chic and wild, complacency and mystery, past and present. The historic Scorrier House is transformed in three days to hold a boutique festival that culminates the arts, poetry, performance arts, and music. Revelers expect to enjoy the Woodland Silent Disco, Secret Gin Garden, Burlesque, and Dead Beats Poetry Corner, among others.

Brainchild, East Sussex (July 7-9). From visual arts to film, music, and theater, expect an immersive boutique festival, especially when Brainchild holds loads of workshops and seminars for young and old minds. According to The Guardian, the festival is much as it a "promotes a DIY philosophy." Every year, it connects to the different art scene in the country, and about 300 of them heard the call.

Festival No 6, Portmeirion (Sep. 7-10). If you can check out Festival No 6 in Wales, you can catch dozens of experiences and activities such as Sgt Pepper's Themed Carnival, Saturday Night Spectacle, and the famed torchlight processions from the Village to the Castell Park. While you can expect huge names like Flaming Lips and Bloc Party to the party, revelers can also enjoy performances from The Brythoniaid Male Voice Choir, and Joe Duddell And The No.6 Ensemble.

Lost Village, Lincolnshire (Aug. 24-27). Because it brings out the flower or the soul child in you, Lost Village Festival gathers the artists, foodies, music lovers, and all curious minds for a four-day celebration. And even GQ Magazine said that the festival is quite immersive from theater and food from Michelin-starred chefs, making it the "festival experience of the summer." There will be an exceptional line-up of the UK's best comedy, creative workshops, and craftsmanship, and hot tubs and wood-fired saunas to choose from as well.
