Music festivals bring in lots of money each year depending on the artists. If you’re fortunate enough to catch your favorite bands live and spend the entire day relaxing with your buddies, you should!
It’s about good music and good company and everything else literally falls into place. You spend the day doing what you love most with the people you love most. Can it really get any better than that?!
Upcoming music festivals in 2017
Summer music festivals are great because it’s the time of year when everyone wants to get out of the house and take advantage of the great weather!
It keeps getting better and better, right?! Now, all you must do is find family activities, but don’t worry, we’ve got you covered! Here are our top 3 music festivals you should visit this year:
1Stone Free Festival, UK
This music festival, for me, is right at home and is so close by, so I’m super lucky. It’s located in the iconic O2 arena, where it will deliver two jam-packed days of rock music, fun, and laughter.
Not only will you be able to watch your favorite artists in person, but you will also get to experience one of the UK’s most famous landmarks and tourist attractions at its best.
Rather than just staring at it, like most people- you’ll be able to experience it, whilst listening to amazing music and having a good time.
What’s more, is that near the O2, you have other great attractions, to keep you entertained- like the Emirates Cable Cars, so you’ll be able to ride cable cars across the Thames and experience beautiful views whilst you’re on the top of the world.
You even have cinemas, restaurants and a boat hotel just waiting for you to step inside. Excited?! You should be!
Then, wait till you see the line-up… The Darkness (“the multi-million selling band”), Alice Cooper, Rick Wakeman, Marillion, Apocalyptica and so much more. It will be a phenomenal experience for you and your friends so, what are you waiting for?!
2Oasis Festival, Morocco
Are you ready for sun, sand, and sunglasses for two days in Morocco?! Well, be prepared to have the time of your life, as it really can’t get much better than this!
This to-die-for festival will be located at The Source, which is a gorgeous tourist resort that will blow your mind. During your stay, you are free to explore the area and sample local delicacies and come to terms with the beauty that Morocco must offer.
You can have a massage, take a dip in the pool, or buy presents for your family and friends back home. And if that doesn’t sound fantastic, I don’t know what does!
It’s a day of relaxation and luxury at this music festival and it should make it onto your Priority List. Now, who will you be listening to at this incredible event?
You will be seeing Chloé, Jeremy Underground, Karenn, Solomun, Moodymann, and MORE! This music festival will be in September, from the 15th till the 17th, so you have plenty of time to plan beforehand!
Doesn’t it sound amazing? So, hurry to book your tickets for the opportunity of a lifetime!
3Bilbao BBK Live, Spain
Now, this music festival is MORE than a simple music festival. The festival is situated on Kobetamendi Hill, in the city of Bilbao, so, you can be surrounded and immersed in iconic views and Spanish culture.
You can experience the beauty of the landscape first-hand at this music festival, making for some awesome Instagram posts (InstaFame here I come!) and amazing memories for you and your friends to keep close to your hearts.
Then, if you get bored of the festival (which I seriously doubt, but you never know) then you can check out the museums nearby- like the Guggenheim Museum, which will make your time spent even more worthwhile as you can learn the history of the area, too!
What do you do when you get hungry?
At the festival, you’ll have access to food, that is all locally-sourced and made by phenomenal chefs who know a thing or two about good food.
OR if you really don’t want to eat festival food, then pop out and visit a nearby Michelin-starred restaurant to experience heaven for a brief period.
You have everything at this festival, and we haven’t even reached the line-up yet!
The artists that you will be seeing at the Bilbao BBK Festival:
(Seriously, if you aren’t convinced yet, you will be now)
The Killers, 1975, Brian Wilson, Royal Blood, Phoenix, DJ Tennis, and Andrew Weatherall.
Head down to Spain for this amazing festival on July the 6th to July the 8th 2017 to have the time of your lives.
