Festival season is right around the corner. If you are looking to shake things up this summer, then look no further! This article is going to go over some of the best festivals in the world, not only here in the United States, but across the ocean as well, so get your passports ready because you are not going to want to miss any of these.
Glastonbury Festival, United Kingdom
This five-day musical adventure takes place in Glastonbury England. It was actually inspired by the hippie movement of the 60's and 70's. The festival began the day after Jimi Hendrix died in 1970. This festival is known for its Pyramid Stage and is one of the only festivals that are specifically known for huge stages. Radiohead, The Cure, and David Bowie are just a few of the names that have appeared at this festival.
Fuji Rock, Japan
This festival got its name because the first one that was held in 1997 was at the base of Mount Fiji. Now it is held at Naeba Ski Resort in Japan. This festival is unique because concertgoers are treated to a picturesque scene with trails leading from stage to stage cutting through lush forests and amazing streams. The largest gondola, known as the "Dragondola", also calls this resort home and carries concertgoers up the mountain to look over the festival. Foo Fighters, Deadmau5, and Owl City have played at this festival.
Burning Man Festival, Nevada
Dedicated to art and self-expression, this is the festival everyone talks about. By the time Burning Man is over, there is no trace of it. The festival was started in 1986 when two friends built a makeshift wooden man on the Summer Solstice while a crowd watched. In the years following the festival got bigger and bigger with a different theme every year such as "good and evil", "The Body" and "Rites of Passage".
Whether you are looking to explore the world or just your backyard, Music Festivals are always a fun way to make memories with your friends. Nothing brings people together like music and good vibes.
