Summer? Let the Music Begin!
Summer is an excellent time to put on a mini-skirt, relax in the heart of the sun and turn crazy under the sounds of music of the best summer festivals. Cheerful mood and hot weather are perfect additions to the celebrations of people’s love for music. Music festivals are held all over the world and the most famous of them are definitely worth visiting.
Denmark is the host of the largest music festival in the Northern Europe which is called Roskilde. The tradition of gathering the fans of music from all over the world has started in 1971. The arena of the festival presents a 30-kilometers zone outside of Copenhagen. There you can enjoy practically all genres of music – rock, pop, house, electronica, hip and hop and all other music styles you can image. Local bands as well as internationally famous artists perform together on seven stages provided on this open-air event. Roskilde takes place in the hottest month of summer – July which guarantees that the nights will be hot.
Some festivals are organized in order to attract people’s attention to the modern problems of environment and different social issues. “Rock in Rio”, for instance, serves this very purpose. It is held annually in various Southern countries, such as Brazil, Spain, Argentina and Portugal. The festival lasts for two summer weekends and impresses with the number of music stars representing different eras of music history.
One of the most eco-friendly festivals is, probably, “Splendour in the Grass” which presents an open-air event in Australia. There you can enjoy three days of summer which are filled with music, wonderful performances and sun. Listening to indie and rock stars such as Smashing Pumpkins, The Shins, Gossip and Lana Del Ray among breath-taking Australian sceneries is one of the greatest pleasures ever existed.
