Its summer and its music festival time. Time to pack the tent and wellies. What events around the world could you choose from this summer? Well in the UK, there’s the Isle of Wight festival, the world famous Glastonbury festival, Reading and T in the Park in Scotland. And for some good old heavy metal there’s Download Festival in England.
In mainland Europe there is the Roskinde Festival in Denmark which is one of the biggest in the world. The Sziget Festival in Budapest in Hungary attracts more than 300,000 visitors and has over 1000 acts to listen to over the period of a week.
In the USA this summer, there are just too many to mention. You can attend a festival for any musical genre you like, rock and metal, country, bluegrass, jazz, dance, you name it.
Some of the more notable ones are Rockfest in Kansas City and probably one of the biggest one day festivals in the country. The Beale Street Music Festival in Memphis kicks of a month long festival throughout the month of May and has some great acts appearing every year representing many different musical genres. The Oregon Back Festival is also very popular and runs through June and July and has been going for 40 years now. So many festivals to choose from.
