It’s never too early to start planning your next adventure. Whether you’re looking to travel far or keep it close to home, there’s one thing to be kept in mind -- festival season is quickly approaching. Some of you have already been prepping. You’ve scoped out the line-ups and you’ve pre-ordered your passes. For those who haven’t -- yeah, you’re a bit behind (to put it nicely), but you are not hopeless.

Here are a few festivals worldwide to have on your radar. From Coachella and Summerfest to Donauinselfest and Glastonbury you have more than enough options to get your warm weather mega-block party fix. Be sure to keep an eye out for future posts as we cover our favorites throughout the Summer season!

Hailing from Indio, California, Coachella is known for its fashion almost as much as its music line-up. With 2014 boasting names like Calvin Harris, Ellie Goulding, Grouplove, Kid Cudi, Little Dragon, Nas and Lorde, prioritizing which shows to watch (and what to wear) is going to be tough – and yet totally worth the effort. We’re excited to scope the styles and shake out to the sounds at the head honcho of music festivals.

In a classic East Coast versus West Coast battle, Governors Ball on Randall’s Island, New York is another one to look out for. Featuring performances from Janelle Monae, Phoenix, Skrillex, Damian Marley and Tyler, The Creator, three days doesn’t sound like quite enough time to enjoy this jam-packed roster of talent.

Summerfest, the world’s largest music festival is held in Milwaukee, Wisconsin. This 11-day festival hosts acts from OutKast and Lady Gaga to Motley Crue and Paramore. Check this out for a mega-experience unlike any other.

Donauinselfest in Vienna, Austria features everything from Austrian household names to international acts. It is Europe’s biggest open-air event – and not only that, it’s free! There’s no doubting the hills will be alive with the sound of music (and fireworks to boot) this summer.

Until the 2014 line-up is revealed for Glastonbury festival, reminiscing over the 2013 one will have to suffice. Housing over 100 stages, last year’s event was a never-ending showcasing of new bands. With the Arctic Monkeys, Haim, Solange, Crystal Castles, Bastille and Alt-J, not even England’s rain could put a damper on this epic fest (but just to be safe, pack a poncho).


If you’re looking for a summer full of adventures, surprises and getting a little wild, hitting up the festival circuit this season is the best way to do it – hands down!
