With Glastonbury over already, a lot of us are probably not ready to let go of the festival spirit and now we don’t even have to!

The festival season is just getting warmed up and there’s many events featuring live music happening all over the world.

Here are a few of the best events to attend this year:

·         Latitude

In addition to all the bands you can enjoy at Latitude this year, there is also a diverse range of culture to be experienced from ballet to book-readings and Thai food to techno. Latitude is very family friendly and can be enjoyed by people of all ages with main acts including Skrillex, Stereo MCs and Hurts.

Date: July 14-17
Where: Henham Park Estate, Suffolk, UK

·         Sea Dance Festival
Jaz Beach is Europe’s best beach according to Lonely Planet so why not turn a festival in to a holiday at the same time? World class DJs are expected to attend the festival which is quickly becoming one of Europe’s best and most affordable festivals.

Date: July 14-16
Where: Jaz Beach, Budva, Montenegro

·         Green Man
Green Man started out 13 years ago as a modest folk festival in the Brecon Beacons which has since established itself as one of the most anticipated alternative music festivals in the UK. The festival will be headlined by the likes of James Blake, Laura Marling and Wild Beasts.

Date: August 18-21
Where: Glanusk Park, Powys, Wales, UK

·         Lake of Stars

The majority of the line-up at this African festival is from the thriving Malawian music scene however there are Western DJs and bands regularly making the trip. Offering a stunning backdrop of a lakeside wildlife reserve, this is a festival to be experienced.

Date: September 30 - October 2
Where: Chintheche Inn, Lake Malawi, Malawi

·         Burning Man
The Burning Man is one of the world’s most bizarre and creative festivals, and therefore it is not strictly just a music festival. Each year the festival has a theme which encourages festival goes to dress in fancy dress – this year it is ‘DaVinci’s Workshop.’ A huge creation which is different each year is also set alight on the Saturday night which creates an epic bonfire.

Date: August 28 – September 5
Where: Nevada, USA

·         Magnetic Fields
India is not the first country that comes to mind when you think of our typical festival but this is not a typical festival! You won’t need a tent as festival goers are invited to sleep and stay in traditional dens, while the festival itself is set in a 17th century palace. While enjoying the music, you can also indulge in regular yoga sessions!

Date: December 9-11
Where: Alsisar Mahal, Rajasthan, India
