4. Burning man
Most certainly not a Music festival, and it doesn’t advertise music at all. Even though music artists are known to make guest appearances. So what is it exactly? well the website explains all, and it looks amazingly fun and completely weird and all in the middle of the desert. It does last a week though and you are encouraged to be self sustainable. So it’s not for the faint hearted, however there’s a great community and atmosphere for those who have the minerals. Check it out.
Location; Black Rock Desert, Nevada, USA
Date; 27th August- 4th September
Price; $424- $1308

8. Leeds and Reading
A UK festival which started out its life as a Jazz Festival in the 1950s and then went on to
host some of the biggest rock acts in the world. For the past few years though the event has showcased a mixture of music genres. This years headliners include Eminem and Muse. Despite it being in August this festival has been known to catch a little rain, so like most festivals in the UK, you will probably need wellies. It’s a 3 day event held at both Reading and Leeds with the same acts, so if there’s any clashes you could always head down to the other venue. Sorted.
