30 Photos of Music Festivals Worldwide

Party time, excellent.

It’s the season for music festivals, that special time of the year when thousands of revelers crowd into grassy outdoor venues each weekend for multi-day, multi-act celebrations of rhythm, art, and food. Whether you fancy hard rock, house music, or the horn-heavy beats of New Orleans jazz, there’s a fête for you. And though some festivals have fallen victim to high prices and over-commercialization, there are still a fair amount of smaller concerts that offer the same great vibes, without the $11 cans of Coors Light. Take your pick from our photo collection of music festivals from around the world and hopefully get ready to attend one for yourself!
