A Festival Abroad


The British weather certainly seems to be more confused at the moment than we are at the moment with snow in spring and spring days in winter! Not only are we Britons now searching for warmer climates during the up and coming summer months, but we are doing the same when planning our next music festival adventures.

Even with headline acts continuing to perform at the top British festivals, the traditional green wellies, torrential rain and knee deep mud seems to have lost its appeal to the Great British public.


There are benefits other than the nice weather when going to a festival abroad. It’s a great chance to visit another country, experience the local cuisine as well as embracing a new culture.

Here are my Top 10 festivals in Europe, which are a must go to if you plan to spend your festival summer actually in the sun this year, or of course if you just want a new festival experience:

  1. The Festival Internacional de Benicàssim, Spain
  2. Woodstock Festival, Poland
  3. Roskilde European Music Festival, Denmark
  4. Rock Am Ring and Rock IM Park, Germany
  5. SpringFestival, Graz, Austria
  6. Rock Coast Festival, Tenerife
  7. Open’er Festival, Poland
  8. Pinkpop Festival, Netherlands
  9. Tomorrowland, Belgium
  10. IbizaRocks, Ibiza (Although not a traditional festival over a week or weekend, IbizaRocks is a must for anyone who loves all music types).
