There are many music festivals in Europe so you can always take a gander at these events. Festivals like Sziget Festival, Primavera, Reading and Leads, Glastonbury, Rock am Ring, Isle of Wight, Wireless and a lot more.
When it comes to music festivals you have to look at the line-up and see which one you prefer. Other than that, certain festivals are bigger than others so you will have to see what you prefer.
There are different things to consider when it comes to what festival you are going too.
For example if it is a small festival you can find a hostel to sleep next to the festival if you do not fancy camping, but if you go to Reading and Leads camping would be the best option because you are the close to the festival whereas if you find accommodation away from the festival you might have a 30 minute – 1 hour travel time. Be smart with which festival you go to.
