150 Most Popular Music Festivals in the World For 2017

Welcome to the Music Festival Wizard Annual Report for 2017!

This year we have gathered the data from the past 11 months, 750 festival guides, and 2,000,000+, visitors to compile our rankings for the 150 most popular festivals in the world. Like in previous years, we have the lists broken down in three regions: North America, the United Kingdom, and Europe. We have also added “Top 10” lists for popular countries, regions, and US states.


*Note: The Europe list does not include UK festivals

*Scandinavia: Iceland, Denmark, Finland, Sweden, Norway
*Central Europe: Hungary, Poland, Czech, Slovakia
