Living in the UK, when I think about festivals I think Glastonbury, Camp Bestival, Reading and Leeds, then Notttinghill Carnival, Isle of Wight and the Wilderness festival. However, they not only take place all over the UK but all over the world.
Festivals around the world
It’s amazing how many different types of festival there is. Cheese, fairy, music, woodland, carnival, LGBTQ, snow and ice, Holi, Mardi Gras, ballon, bulls just about anything you can think of there is a festival for it. I thought I would share with you some of my favourite festivals around the world.
Coachella has to be one of the biggest festivals in the world. Every year my social media goes crazy with celebrities attending Coachella, seeing their outfits and who is performing. Coachella has been growing in popularity of the last few years, it has some of the biggest names in music performing. Coachella takes place in Indio California.
Dubai international Jazz festival
Jazz is a very popular across the globe, and each year Dubai is home to it’s famous international Jazz festival. It takes place in February each year over 3 days. Thousands of fans attend each year to see their favourite Jazz artists. Dubai is so easy to visit now, Destination2.co.uk have a fabulous range of great holidays, why not getting booking for next years Jazz festival.
Oktoberfest takes place in Munich, Germany each year. Starting towards the end of September until the first weekend of October, it lasts 16-18 days. Each year millions of people attend the fun fair and beer festival. Oktoberfest now takes place in cities across the world, but nothing compares to the original home of Munich.
Carnival, Rio De Janeiro
The Carnival in Rio De Janeiro is probably the biggest festival in the world. Taking place during February or March over 5 days to mark the Catholic lent celebrations. Over 5 million people attend each year, with people travelling from all over the world to attend. It’s home to the worlds best Samba dancers and is known for it’s spectacular show stopping outfits full of colour. It is also home to one of the biggest parades in the world. If you want to visit a carnival like no other then Carnival in Rio De Janeiro is the place to go.
For the lovers of the snow then Austria’s Snowbombing festival is the place to go. It’s not all about music and snow, why not try Yoga up on the mountains, or pop to a spa. Austria’s Snowbombing is a fabulous festival for a group of friends, who love skiing in some of Europe’s best ski resorts, but who love music. With amazing headlining acts each year. Next year is due to be the best yet for their 20th anniversary festival.
