10 European Music Festivals To Experience This Summer

, , , , , , , , ,

For those who know anything about me, you’ll know that I’m a big music festival junkie.  The atmosphere, the music, the people; it’s just an all around good time.  I consider myself lucky to have attended some of the biggest festivals in the world like Coachella, Tomorrowland, Amsterdam Dance Event, Sensation White, Future Music Festival Asia, I Love Techno, Mysteryland; just to name a few.  If there’s one continent that truly crushes it with throwing proper music festivals, it’s EUROPE.  Every one I’ve been to out there is insane, well organized, and always bring stellar line-ups.  With the global expansion of electronic music and the growing popularity of music festivals, there’s no better time to visit Europe than in the Summer time, and hit up a couple of these amazing music festivals.  But enough talk, let’s talk festivals…
