Everybody loves music. That may be an assumption, but it is probably a fair one to make. Whether it is jazz, classical, EDM, rock, hip-hop, rap, or pop, there are so many genres out there for people of different tastes to enjoy. Music is truly awesome, especially live music.
In fact, according to a study by LiveScience, “Live music may be the most potent happiness trigger because it provides a way to forge social bonds. When you get in a room with people who like the same thing you do, you might create more friendships, a proven factor in the search for happiness.” That should not be shocking to anyone who has ever been to a concert. Unless the musician/performer is horrible on stage, concerts are a fantastic time.
There are festivals for all genres of music, from country to heavy metal. Seriously, there are a ton of festivals out there. Some may consist of the top Tik Tok songs of 2021(https://backlightblog.com/top-tiktok-songs-2021); others could host Metallica and Slipknot.
So, with that many festivals out there, which ones should you choose to visit? Well, the obvious answer is “all of them,” but that isn’t realistic. So, to help you out, the list has been narrowed. Below are the four of the best music festivals that you need to attend:
Rolling Loud is a very well-recognized festival. Performed across the globe, the festival consistently brings a star-studded lineup.
Rolling Loud is performed from Portugal to Miami, Florida, bringing the hottest talent to the stage. For example, at the 2021 Rolling Loud in Miami, artists such as A$AP Rocky, Travis Scott, and Post Malone performed over the three-day period. And those were just the headliners! There were so many other great bands and musicians that came before the headliners actually took the stage. With that being the case it is obvious why Rolling Loud is such a great time.
Annually held in Chicago, Illinois, Lollapalooza, or “Lolla” as it is called, “. . .takes over historic Grant Park in Downtown Chicago, alongside the beautiful Chicago skyline and the shores of Lake Michigan.” The four-day event has featured artists from Foo Fighters to Young Thug and Mt. Joy, covering the bases for a lot of fans as they cross over genre to genre.
Unfortunately, due to the COVID-19 pandemic, Tomorrowland was cancelled for 2021. Still, if you subtract this abnormal year of 2021, the festival hosted in Belgium has been a huge success year after year. With artists such as Steve Aoki and David Guetta performing, there is a much different vibe to it than say a Lollapalooza. At the same time, that does not mean there is a lack of fun, laser shows, and smoke clouds. Tomorrowland is just as if not more fun than any other festival around the world. It is most definitely an event everyone needs to go to.
