0

Summer is fast approaching. Warm weather, a little time off, and more events than you can wrap your head around make summer the perfect season to travel. Especially when you have the option to skip the airport and arrive to your dream destination in luxury and comfort.

What better way to celebrate summer’s arrival than enjoying a new community, an ar-ray of music, and tons of activities at one of the world’s best music festivals?

There’s more than a handful of incredible music fests to choose from this summer. Not sure where to begin? We’ve compiled a list of some of 2018’s best summer music fes-tivals, from your own backyard to across the globe.

Latitude

Where: Southwold, UK
When: July 12-18

What to expect:

Latitude festival is a family-friendly music and performing arts festival that covers eve-rything from theatre and comedy to politics and film.

The performance diversity doesn’t mean a lack of music quality, either. World famous musicians like Solange, The Killers, and Alt-J will be headlining.

Where to stay:

Latitude offers multiple options for accommodations if roughing it isn’t your thing. Choose from beautiful and convenient hotels like the Grange County House or Darsham Old Hall.

If you’re seeking exclusivity and a bit more privacy, be sure to buy tickets early and re-serve the Morello Cottage or Heath View Cottage.

If you’re looking to explore beyond the festival, venture toward the coast to take a walk through Southwohd’s rich history via the Southwold Pier, in view of the eye-catching Southwold Lighthouse.


Tomorrowland

Where: Provinciaal Recreatiedomein De Schorre, Belgium
When: July 20-22 and 27-29

What to expect:

Combine an 18+ Disneyland with electronic music and pyrotechnics and what do you have? Tomorrowland!

The motto of Tomorrowland is “Live today. Love tomorrow. Unite forever.” It focuses on building diverse communities. In fact, it’s known as the most global festival on earth.

With 10 different stages to choose from, you’re guaranteed to discover some new elec-tronic music that you can bring home with you back to the states. The exploration cer-tainly doesn’t stop there, though.

Take in magical special effects, lighting, and journeys like Unite with Tomorrowland, a live stream that allows you to experience Tomorrowland with 7 other countries, includ-ing Spain, Italy, Lebanon, Mexico, Malta and Abu Dhabi.

If you’ll be relying on public transportation, be sure the trains and buses are running during the weekend, as some public transportation stops on weekends in the town of Boom.
