Posted by on January 17, 2015

There’s good reason why summer music festivals are often a buzzing subject among travelers and music junkies alike. From the line-up to the atmosphere and new friendships – avid festival goers know it’s one experience that should not be missed! Here are why.

The Line-Ups

Except if the festival is genre specific, the music variety often caters to everyone’s ears. Jazz, acoustic, rock or dance – you name it.


Unlike concerts, festival shows also give attendees front row access. This means you get the chance to be up close and personal with some of your most favorite bands.


New Friendships

Some people may go alone and others go in groups of friends. Regardless of how you experience festivals though, you will always be guaranteed of meeting new people.

The culture and atmosphere of team spirit is typically so strong in music festivals that bonding with strangers will be inevitable after several rounds of festival circuit. The next thing you know, you are already part of one unexpected festival friends reunion.

The Facilities

Imagine setting up tents beneath the starry skies while seeing your favorite bands play their hearts out on stage. Think about getting the chance to experience unique facilities such as the Beehive Sleeping Cells the Gentse Feesten in Belgium became known for.

Sure, the long queues in toilets and showers may come off daunting, but guaranteed, they will result to funny stories worthwhile to share and laugh about with your friends as you head home.


Zen Zones

For those looking for more mellow experiences, Coachella offers chill spots and Glastonbury features healing fields where guests can take naps or experience relaxing massages. Take time to meditate or attend a yoga class – it shall be your choice.

The Talents

Lastly, witness the unique talents of performers and other guest artists. Bask in displayed artworks and watch dance shows as you stroll along the artist-infested corners of the venue. If you are up for it, you may even sign yourself for a quick workshop lesson. Entertainment options in festivals are simply endless!
