6. Glastonbury Festival

Glastonbury - UK

Glastonbury Festival is the largest greenfield music and performing arts festival in the world and a template for all the festivals that have come after it. The difference is that Glastonbury has all the best aspects of being at a festival in one astonishing bundle.

It's like going to another country, a hip and thrilling Brigadoon that appears every year or so. Coming to Glastonbury involves a fair amount of travel, and probably a queue to get in but, when you get past these impediments, you enter a huge tented city, a mini-state under canvas. British law still applies, but the rules of society are a bit different, a little bit freer. Everyone is here to have a wild time in their own way. (©glastonburyfestivals.co.uk).

Book your accommodation at the best price in Glastonbury as well as your best activities in the UK such as a Glastonbury and Cheddar Gorge day trip from London.

7. Rock in Roma

Roma - Italy

Now on its ninth edition, Rock In Roma is one of the major international rock festival.

About 1.500.000 people (70.000 of which attended The Rolling Stones special event @ Circo Massimo) have attended the previous 8 editions, in a trend that has seen exponential growth, which led to a great increase both for the national and international public.
