What European Festivals to look out for this Summer

Europe is the home of summer festivals. With in excess of 600 festivals spanning across the continent, in what can be a dark world full of poor news and sadness, festivals bring people from all backgrounds together. With that in mind, we would like to reflect on what festival you should be going to this summer.

The fields at Glastonbury

Where else to start other than Glastonbury? The world’s most iconic festival, it’s also one of the most expensive. Sold out, unless you can be sneaky and buy a ticket off someone you look similar to (yeah, these tickets have photo ID) – people are parting with £230 to spend 4 days at this festival.

Who headlines: Muse, Adele and Coldplay

More of a house-head? Then Tomorrowland in Belgium will be your best bet. The world’s largest Electronic music festival sees almost every DJ in the world you can think of on the bill. This festival is known for its ground-breaking production and pyrotechnics!

Who headlines: Alesso, Afrojack and Don Diablo

Looking for a more alternative experience this summer? Then Dour Festival, also held in Belgium, may be what you are after. Founded in the 80’s, it’s held in a unique terrain in the heart of Borinage Terrils, with a huge capacity of 230,000 music lovers.

Who headlines: The Prodigy, Mobb Deep and Underworld

One of the most anticipated festivals of the summer is in the UK this year. Secret Garden Party in July features some awesome acts, a real mixture. This arts and music festival has its own lake, river and gardens, with a select 26,000 visitors. This festival even supports The Campaign Against Living Miserably, aiming to prevent male suicide in the UK.
