Bonnaroo Music and Arts Festival
Manchester, Tennessee, USA
(16-19th June 2022)

Since debuting in 2002, Bonnaroo has been attracting the masses to the small town of Manchester, Tennessee with its promise of a free-spirited weekend and wonderfully eclectic lineups of big-name musicians. In 2017 alone, the festival boasted talent like You Too to the weekend Lord and Chance the rapper, etc. While music is the main attraction, that’s far from being the only reason to make the trip.

2. Splendour in the Grass, Byron Bay Australia (July 2022)

This annual summertime festival has been attracting Australians and the world alike since 2001. But if you’d like to join in, we recommend planning well ahead of time because tickets sell out fast. How fast? Well in 2018, under half an hour. So what is it that makes these whimsically named festivals so popular? Well in terms of music, it offers a bit of everything. All genres are welcome. Then there are the activities. Splendour delivers everything festival-goers could want including arts and crafts, dance-offs, a mini color party, and elaborate art installations. It’s also a very small suburb, a marketplace packed with food stalls and vintage clothing vendors. There are even beauty salons.

3. The Festival Internacional de Benicàssim, Benicàssim, Spain (14 to 18th July 2022)

While the Primavera Sound Festival in Barcelona is well worth the price of entrance or even a plane ticket to get there, when it comes to music festivals in Spain, the Benicàssim International Festival reigns supreme. Showcasing a variety of big-name pop, electronic and rock artists, this festival often abbreviated to FIB for short, is world-renowned. Unlike most festivals where the music eventually comes to an end sometime after midnight, FIB keeps it going with live music until 8:00 a.m. So you know it’s a serious party oh? And did we mention that it takes place on the edge of a coastal town or to be more specific a seaside resort?

Talk to a few festival-goers and you’ll soon begin to understand what makes Fuji rock so special. For starters, the setting itself is absolutely stunning and there’s the lineup that consistently includes the biggest names in the industry. But there’s also just something wonderfully relaxed about Fuji rock. There’s a river Oasis to cool in often, an elaborate children’s play area, a boardwalk through the woods, and more.

6. Lollapalooza, Chicago Illinois, USA (28-31st July 2022)

Once a touring festival, Lollapalooza has since gotten a new lease on life as a stationary weekend festival in Chicago.

7. Rock in Rio, Rio de Janeiro, Brazil (2-11th September 2022)

This Brazilian-born festival was once a sporadic affair. There was one in the 80s, another in the 90s, and a handful in the first decade of the new millennium. Though interestingly there is only one in Rio. Thankfully, since 2010 there has consistently been at least one Rock in Rio event a year, every second year. It’s held in the city of its birth Rio de Janeiro while in off years it takes place in other cities like Las Vegas, Lisbon, and Madrid. However, you just can’t beat Rock in Rio when it’s actually in Rio. It’s the biggest party you’ll ever attend. A bucket-list experience and something you really need to be part of to understand.

It’s the center of electronic dance music. A trip to this festival is held in the typically quiet yet wonderfully. An appropriately named city of BOOM literally feels like a voyage into a different plane of existence. The detail that goes into the art installations and decoration is second to none. The lineup is always a who’s who of the hottest DJs in the world and then there’s ‘dream Ville’ which is quite possibly the most elaborately themed festival village you’ll ever have the privilege to shimmy.

9. Coachella Valley Music and Arts Festival Indio, California, USA (15-24th April 2022)

At least as far as America is concerned, there is really no music festival bigger or more iconic than the Coachella. What can we say about this two-weekend affair that hasn’t already been said. The lineup is basically a checklist of every trending and relevant superstar and music for that year. The guest list typically sports a plethora of famous names giving you a decent chance of a celebrity sighting and the festival vibe itself is bananas. In many ways, Coachella has become the standard by which cross-genre musical festivals everywhere are judged and it just keeps getting bigger and better.
