Get your cowboy boots & bucket hats ready...

Olivia Rodrigo on stage at Glastonbury

We're obsessed with festivals at the moment. Having Glastonbury plastered all over our TVs after a two-year COVID hiatus, Wireless fest popping up with Megan Thee Stallion and Cardi B doing an on-stage appearance with that famous WAP song, we can't get enough. Who does the best festivals? Europe ofc. Big up European festivals. 🙌

Whether you're one to dance the night away to house and drum & bass music, or want to sing along to indie bands, there's something for everyone. Europe is known for its singing crowds and has everything from Spain's Benicàssim to Budapest's Sziget. Who needs Coachella when you have these amazing festivals right on our doorstep?

Not to mention the insane festival fashion that's going on at the mo. Cowboy boots - yeehaw. Bucket hats? Put them in our basket rn. 70's fashion and accessories are making a total comeback, too. We just can't get enough.

So, if that isn't enough to make you want to book a festival ticket right now, we've hunted down the best European festivals you'll want a ticket to this year and every single year after that. Anyone who's had to quite literally swim to their tent in the pouring rain will probably agree a festival sans mud is a bloody good idea.

Get your camping tents ready, peeps.
