By  | 

Music festivals are where art, culture and music all come together to create one extravagant affair. Although music is what draws you to one, it’s the vibe that makes you want to stay. This is why I’ve curated this list of the 10 best music festivals that you must know about and should experience at some point in your life. With Coachella having just concluded, pick one that interests you and start planning!

 

1. The Governor’s Ball Music Festival

Where: New York City, United States
When: June 3 – 6, 2016

Here is a music festival that is the hub of New York’s culture; a one-stop destination to enjoy rock, electronic, hip-hop, indie, pop and folk music. It also brings together popular restaurants and food trucks in the city. The three-day festival is for folks who appreciate great music and like to soak in varied cultures sounds from different places. Grab your credit cards and buy a ticket soon. (PS: They have special offers for those who book in groups.)

2. Sonar

Where: Barcelona, Spain
When: June 16 – 18, 2016

Now’s the time to strike Barcelona off your bucket list of must-visit places, and also experience electronic music and amazing modern art. S0nar is among the veteran festivals that have always been on people’s must do list, with stages promising newcomers and new musical discoveries. You don’t want to miss this vibrant and colourful festival this June. Tickets are currently on sale.

3. Roskilde

Where: Roskilde, Denmark
When: June 25 –  July 2, 2016

A hippie-gathering-turned-music-festival, this one celebrates music, food, and art. This festival believes in changing the world with music and so they donate all their earnings to charity. How cool is that? I’m totally on board! More than 3,000 artists perform every year, and you get to see both mainstream and lesser known artists here. Must. Visit. Soon.

 

4. Splendour In The Grass

Where: New South Wales, Australia
When: July 22 – 24, 2016

Technically, it’s winter in Australia while the world north of the equator is enjoying a spot of sun. However, I believe this music festival deserves to be listed because it’s been a hot favourite for more than a decade now. It has a line-up of amazing artists playing rock, pop and EDM. Art installations, pop-up stores, and craft workshops are the other activities that they have in store for you.

5. Lollapalooza

Where: Chicago, United States
When: July 28 – 31, 2016

Originally created by singer Perry Farrell as the final tour of his band, this festival grew into a larger-than-life event that features alternative rock, heavy metal, punk rock, and so much more. Entertain yourself with other fun things like comedy, dance, and crafts when you want a breather from the music.

 

6. Fuji Rock Festival

Where: Yuzawa-cho, Niigata Prefecture, Japan
When: July 22 – 24, 2016

If there ever would be a ‘Best Rock Festivals’ list, then Fuji Rock Festival would figure right on top. Great artists from all over the world come together to make it the world’s most popular event. Spend a few days of your vacation in the scenic Naeba Ski Resort and enjoy some awesome music.

When: August 10 – 17, 2016

If your aim is to attend the best music festival in the world, go for the Sziget Festival. The week-long celebration boasts of bringing in some heavyweights in the music industry every single year.
