Top 5 Music Festivals in Europe in June
Summer is around the corner, and I don’t know about you but I am already on a festival mood. To be honest, all the selfies and videos about Coachella that keep appearing in my Facebook wall don’t help too much. I can’t wait to run away from the office and dance like crazy in a festival, but for the moment I am happy to share with you my top 5 festivals during June.
Dates: June 4th to 8th
Location: Barcelona, Spain
The first festival that takes place in one of Europe’s biggest water parks, Illa Fantasia in Barcelona. The festival has 3 different stages but instead of dance floor, there is a swimming pool! such a good idea, right? The music style of this festival is quite varied, from House & Techno, EDM, reggae and hip hop, to embrace all the diversity around Europe.
You can buy the tickets in their webpage, the full weekend ticket is around 170€ (without accommodation). You can also buy a ticket that includes accommodation in a hotel around Barcelona but it is more expensive. We would recommend to reserve your own accommodation, so you can adapt to your budget, choose a location, etc.
Dates: June 25th to 28th
Location: Banffy Castle, near Cluj- Napoca, Romania
This is the 3rd edition of the biggest festival in Romania. It is located next to an abandoned castle, which gives it a quirky rave look, so cool and a bit scaring! In terms of line up, there are 150 artists playing in its 6 stages. Some of the big ones are Fatboy Slim, Parov Stelar and my favourite one The Cat Empire! but keep an eye in the less famous groups and DJ’s because there are some awesome artists!
In terms of transportation, you can get there by car, by bus or by train and you have all this information in their website. The accommodation in camping is not included in the price of the ticket and you must book it in advanced.
Dates: June 11th to 14th
Location: Isle of Weight, The UK
Isle of Weight is one of the mythic festivals of all times, like Glastonbury or Woodstock. Since 1968 some of the biggest have played there, for instance The Doors or Jimmy Hendrix. This year The Black Keys, The Prodigy or Paolo Nuttini will take part in its awesome line up. If you are a festival lover, this is a experience that you must live at least once in life!
Thinking about accommodation? There are plenty of options: camping, glamping (luxurious camping), boutique camping, etc. The prices of the tickets vary a lot depending on the option that you choose (some include accommodation and transport) and you can buy them in their webpage.
Dates: June 18- 20 th
Sonar is the biggest electronic festival in Europe. 150 artists, over 100,000 music lovers, 3 days and nights of non-stop party in one of the most cosmopolitan cities in Europe. Can you think in a better plan?
Finding accommodation during this time in Barcelona is practically impossible and quite expensive. So you should book your accommodation in advance.
Are you a night or day person? or both? During the day the festival takes place in the showroom installations located in Montjuic. The night party, where the main concerts take place, is located in Gran Vía de l’Hospitalet. Take a look to their webpage to know how to move from one part to the other and don’t let the party stop!
Dates: June 27th to 30th
Location: Pilton, UK
Glastonbury is the largest greenfield music and performing arts festival in the world.Amazing, isn’t it? This festival has something for everyone; whether you are a 10 years old kid or you are in your thirties you will have a blast in its different areas such as Theatre & Circus, the Green Fields and Shangri-la. The line- up can’t be better, The Who, The Chemical Brothers, Alt-J, etc.
I hope you have a blast this summer and you spent until the last minute enjoying your holidays! So don’t waste any time looking for next year’s accommodation, just check at Beroomers’ webpage, find your ideal student home and move in!
