Summer is here with its undertones of freedom, giddy mirth and euphoria as music lovers around the world don their festival gear in anticipation of the (literally) lit summer music festivals around the world. Thousands of people spill out on festival grounds covered in glitter makeup, neon accessories and colourful outfits to scatter more colour in summer-tinged, charming locales.
The sense of freedom and anarchy in these festivals are palpable as well as a feeling of belonging to a community. The few days of the festival are meant to draw you out of your shell so you can let down your hair to an eclectic mix of music in the sunshine.
Your hair may be uncombed with the remnants of last night’s neon makeup on your face, your teeth unbrushed, you may not have taken a bath in days, you’ve been surviving on greasy ribs and burgers which don’t do your waistline any favours but all of that doesn’t matter because you’re having the time of your life.
A spectacular music festival isn’t just a lineup of good music artists. It needs to be set in an edgy location which enhances your experience of great music and offers a lot to explore, eat and drink. Festival-goers pick music festivals on the basis of the kind of vibe they sport. If the vibe is right, the locale amazing and the line-up stellar, then all you need to do is book your tickets and grab that glow in the dark tank top for an unforgettable experience.
Here are some of the top summer music festivals set to happen in 2019.
