The best summer music festivals around Europe

You are looking for information about the best summer music festivals around Europe? Europe offers thousands of exciting music festivals in summer every year where you can live unique experiences. Let’s check some of the best ones out.

1. Tomorrowland

Tomorrowland is one of the best summer music festivals around Europe which offers electronic dance music. This exciting event was first held in 2005 and has been one of the world’s largest music festivals. Also, the event takes place in the town of Boom, Belgium which is about 32 kilometres north of Brussels. It now occurs over 2 weekends and sells out in minutes. Therefore, if you want to go to the festival, you need to really keep your eyes on it.

2. Earth Garden

Organized in the beautiful Ta’ Qali National Park on the island of Malta, Earth Garden is one of the largest non-mainstream music festivals in Malta. The festival has been held since 2007 and attracted over 25000 music lovers around the world over 4 days. Additionally, Earth Garden is not just about music but also about campsites, a workshop area, an international food court, an Ethic market and a Kid’s area. Sounds interesting, doesn’t it? Besides, Earth Garden is a pioneer in raising the public’s awareness about environmental issues, electric and water consumption and waste management.

3. EXIT festival

Considered by many as one of the best summer music festivals in the world, EXIT is a Serbian rock, indie and electronic music festival which is held every summer in the stunning Petrovaradin Fortress. EXIT is a unique festival as it first started as a student fighting for peace and democracy in Serbia.

4. Glastonbury Festival

Glastonbury Festival is the biggest greenfield music and performing arts festival around the world. “It’s like going to another country, a hip and thrilling Brigadoon that appears every year or so. Coming to Glastonbury involves a fair amount of travel, and probably a queue to get in but, when you get past these impediments, you enter a huge tented city, a mini-state under canvas. British law still applies, but the rules of society are a bit different, a little bit freer. Everyone is here to have a wild time in their own way.” (

5. Soundwave Festival

Soundwave Festival has been one of the best summer music festivals in Croatia where you can get wonderful experiences on the stunning Croatian Coastline. This European boutique festival has been a favourite event for locals and visitors when many revellers return year after year and the tickets are always fully sold out.

“Soundwave is a perfect choice if you’re just after a long weekend festival event in Europe, although there’s also a great opportunity for you to combine it with a holiday on Croatia’s coastline either before or after.” (©
