Summer Music Festivals Worldwide
Summer is finally here and music lovers know what that means- summer music festivals! Check out this quick list of music events this summer and add more of your own in comment section.
Vans Warped Tour
June 16- August 5
The Used, Rise Against, Lost Prophets, and Of Mice and Men headline this year’s tour that starts in Salt Lake City UT and travels throughout the United States. Over 90 bands are scheduled to appear and if past summers are any indication, this event is sure to rock.
We all knew this one would make the list, right? This year’s headliners are Red Hot Chilli Peppers, The Black Keys, and Black Sabbath. But don’t miss out on the rest of the bill including Florence & The Machine, Jack White and tons of midlevel bands. The concert event is held in Chicago, Illinois.
June 28-July 1
This festival, held in Werchter, Belgium, is one of the five biggest European music festivals. This year it boasts Pearl Jam, Red Hot Chilli Peppers, The Cure, Dropkick Murphys and way more. Can we start drooling now?
Japan’s biggest festival has amazing bands, expect The Stone Roses and Radiohead to headline this year, and a mystifying location in the mountains of Naeba, Japan. Some stages are only available after a trek through a forest or a gondola ride. There’s also a “stoned circle” where you can play drums and other instruments.
Splendour in the Grass
If you’re going to be in New South Wales, Australia this summer (their winter), this is the place to be. Hidden in the sleepy surfer town of Bryon Bay, it’s headliners include Jack White, The Smashing Pumpkins, and other top Aussie rock bands.
This is by no means a comprehensive list. So get out there, get creative, and enjoy some summer music!
