The New Year comes with bold and flashing hope. People would always look at it as a way to start over—or at least continue whatever positive vibes they have going on from the previous year. For others, it will be yet another chance to chase their dreams and make something out of their lives. For ravers, though, the New Year is a little more exciting because of potential and confirmed music festivals to go to.
So 2019, the Pantone year of “living coral”, what do you have in store for these ravers? Here are some of these music festivals that are worth saving up for:
Earth Garden Festival 2019
The Earth Garden Festival of Attard, Malta is the one event that mostly kicks off the summer season in the region. This will be held from May 31 to June 2 with the same celebratory nod to music, life, and the amazing diversity of nature. For 2019, the Earth Garden line up is not yet complete but it has already been tagged to feature both electronic and psytrance music. Earth Garden is also known to be not just a festival for different genres of music but would usually host as well a myriad of activities like yoga and healing classes. A meditation area, an ethnic market, and a wide array of international cuisine completes the whole venue. This is truly as inspirational as it is enjoyable because of the careful mix of meditative and raving environment.
Upstream Music Fest 2019
To be held in Seattle, Washington between May 31 and June 2, the Upstream Music Fest of 2019 will feature more than 400 bands in and around Pioneer Square. It will be a feast for any raver. Plus, there will be a summit that will be headlined by superb speakers from different industries. As it is not uncommon for career people to actually enjoy quite some raving, this will prove to be a beneficial event for them personally and professionally. They get to enjoy tasteful music and at the same time meet new people who may help them enhance their professional skills and be better in their own fields.
Got a flight to the UK in June? You might want to hit the Camden Rocks, a festival in London that runs from June 1 to 2. It’s a massive festival that features about 200 bands and then some, playing in over 20 venues in the UK. Camden Rocks usually showcases newbies in the music industry so it is a must-see if you are interested in discovering new sounds. Camden Rocks 2019 does not have a lineup yet, since it’s about half a year away and tickets might go on sale about a few months before the event itself. The festival will be big on alternative music and alternative rock, with an interesting dose of punk.
Voodoo Experience 2019
If you wanna go raving on the coming year’s Halloween, the Voodoo Experience is a splendid choice. It will be held in New Orleans on November 1st and will run for three days in total. The festival will be mainly alternative, rock, electronic, and indie. Though there is no lineup yet, the festival will surely be an amazing mix of music and the arts. There is also a very big chance that the festival will want costumed attendees. This is looking to be the greatest Halloween experience any raver will have.
And of course, we will not forget the mother of all music festivals—Coachella. Happening from April 12 to 21 in Indio, California, the Coachella is the best form of music festival. It has come to full popularity now from when it started back in 1999. Coachella will be headlined by the biggest names in the music industry—Cardi B, Eminem, and the queen Beyonce herself. Indie and new music voices will also be featured—Alison Wonderland, Father Bear, and Kygo among others. If there is one music festival you can definitely and undoubtedly prepare for, Coachella will be it.
These are just some of the grandest festivals that you would want to check out and save up for. More of these will be happening around the globe. If you will be traveling any time next year, you might want to include these festivals in your itinerary. It will surely enhance your experience and you will get to meet new people in an entirely different realm. After all, you know what people say, music brings together even the most diverse of cultures.
