These are the best music festivals abroad you absolutely must attend this year

Yes, that’s right: festivals are back. We had a few hiccups the last two festival seasons due to the pande***, but now, we’re all collectively rejoicing at the prospect of a summer spent having fun in the sun or snow with our best pals.

As much as we are spoilt for choice when it comes to festivals in the UK, those travel bans over the last two years have put the catching flights not feelings bug in all of us.

Fear not though, as there are plenty of other amazing festivals with the dreamiest of line-ups to keep your summer calendar booked to the brim. After all, after being deprived of a party or two in the last two years, that is the least we deserve right?

If you’re a little tired of partying in these British lands and want to fuel your hit of sun, music, and travel with one stone, then it looks like international festivals are very much an option. Whether you’re thinking the slopes of Austria, or the sunny Portuguese beaches or even making a swift trip to the other side of the pond to enjoy partying in the American desert.

It’s important to reiterate that logistics around international festivals are still dependent on the country/destinations restrictions, Covid guidelines, and vaccination status, but this is nothing can’t help with. Either way, here are all the festivals we are gagging to attend for 2k22 festival szn.
