Everyone knows this festival because the biggest names of Hollywood (Kylie Jenner, Ariana Grande, Kendall Jenner) attend this high-fashion music festival every year! ‘Coachella’ or ‘Coachella Valley Music and Arts Festival’ is held every year in California and was started back in 1993 when Pearl Jam performed there and the promotion company thought of the venue to be perfect for a potential music festival. There was no looking back since then! Radiohead, Lorde, Beyoncé, Kendrick Lamar are just a few of the many artistes who have played at this fest! You will be in for crazy crowds, sunny Californian skies, a lot of food and alcohol–sounds like the ideal recipe for the perfect international music festival, doesn’t it?
This is a 5-day music festival that happens in Somerset, England every year. In addition to music, Glastonbury also hosts theatre, dance and comedy artists. Some of the biggest names in the music industry like Alt-J, Liam Gallagher, Coldplay, David Bowie etc. have played here! In fact, Bangalore based Raghu Dixit has also performed here! If you truly love music, look out for their line-up announcement because 5 days of non-stop music in a place like England will be worth the money!
You can consider Burning Man to be more of a community and less of a festival. If you’re looking to have a completely new experience and like being surprised, Burning Man should be on your bucket list. It takes place in the middle of nowhere in the Black Rock Desert in Nevada. The idea is to come together and create something new each year and the best part is that you must bring your own food, water and make your own sleeping arrangements. Some of the music artistes who have played here are Diplo, Skrillex, Major Lazer etc.
This music festival is a music lover’s paradise as every big musician that you can think of has played here! It must be an absolute delight to have so many legends under one roof that is Nova Rock. It’s held in a beautiful part of Austria and should definitely be on your bucket list if you love music and travel. It has multiple stages and you have to shuffle between them to catch up with your favourite acts. Bands like Green Day, Limp Bizkit, Porcupine Tree, The Killers, Audioslave etc have played here. So now you know it’s a no-nonsense music festival that every music lover should visit!
A music festival on a real cruise? Yes please! For all you EDM lovers, if this festival isn’t on your bucket list, you’re probably missing out on a crucial chunk of EDM music. The ship can occupy over 4000 people and sails from Florida to the Bahamas and makes a stop at an island for an all-day beach party. Artistes like Zedd, Flume, Steve Aoki and FatBoy Slim have played here. Doesn’t it sound too good to be true?
So, book your tickets, pack your best outfits and visit the international music festival you like the most for an experience that will stay with you forever.
