There’s nothing quite like live music: the beat of the drums changing the rhythm of your heart, the thrum of the bass, the harmonies, the energy of the performers feeding the hunger of the crowd… it’s an experience unmatched by much else.

Music festivals take the excitement of live music and turn it into an adventure that lasts for days. The little details of music festivals take these exciting experiences to a whole new level.

To help you start planning the perfect music festival journey, we’ve compiled a list of eleven of the best music festivals in the world. These festivals combine the best talent with the most spectacular venues and delicious food to create an unforgettable experience.
