The best music festivals around the world

Coachella Valley Music And Arts Festival

When: April

Where: Indio, California

Due to its location, it’s easily one of the most well-attended festivals by Hollywood types and other celebrities. It has consistently sold out since 2004, lately in the first hours of tickets going online. It’s also consistently been named the best outdoor music festival in North America.

Hellfest Open Air Festival

When: June

Where: Clisson, France

Hellfest claws its way from extreme metal to punk rock, passing by every gnarled and innovative sub-genre in between. Other than maybe the UK's Download Festival, its pace-setting high-point of the metal and rock calendar has no close competition.


When: July

Where: Barcelona, Spain

(Aka the International Festival of Advanced Music and New Media Art). Sónar’s highbrow alternative moniker is a big hint that this is a bit more special than your average dance festival. Now in its twenty-second year, this Barcelona-based three-dayer is a huge party and an egghead dissection of electronic music all wrapped in one.

The most popular festivals across Europe

Rock am Ring & Rock im Park

When: June

Where: Mendig and Nürnberg, Germany

If rock and metal are your game, then Germany's Rock am Ring needs no introduction. Along with sister festival Rock im Park, it pulls unparalleled lineups year after year and can lay claim to being one of the best-attended weekends in the world.

Hideout Festival

When: July

Where: Zrce Beach, Croatia

Crystal-clear Adriatic waters, sun-soaked boat parties, and beachside stages buzzing with some of the hottest acts in electronic music – Hideout in Croatia is the ultimate European beach festival.

Meadows in the Mountains

When: June

Where: Polkovnik Serafimovo, Bulgaria

Some 850m above sea level in Bulgaria’s Rhodope Mountains, Meadows in the Mountains provides both techno and tranquillity. As it works in harmony with the local village of Polkovnik, festival goers have the opportunity to camp or stay with local grandmothers, known as babas, and enjoy home-cooked meals alongside unique hospitality.

    Summer Sonic

    When: August

    Where: Zozo Marine Stadium & Makuhari Messe, Tokyo; Maishima Sonic Park, Osaka

    In an amazing location overlooking Tokyo Bay, this is a huge summer event to check out in Japan. An interesting fact, the festival
    is held simultaneously in Chiba and Osaka, with acts switching days—so you won’t miss out, whichever you choose.

    Fuji Rock Festival

    When: July

    Where: Naeba Ski Resort, Yuzawa-cho, Niigata Pref

    The holy grail of outdoor music festivals in the region, Fuji Rock Festival is Asia’s answer to Glastonbury, and has become near-synonymous
    with big-named bands. Hosted annually around late summer at the Naeba Ski Resort, the festival grounds are accessible from Tokyo via
    a 90-minute ride on the Shinkansen (bullet train), followed by a 40-minute complimentary shuttle to the campsite.
