Music festivals are a great way to experience the best of what the music industry has to offer. From jazz to rock, pop to metal, and folk to hip-hop, there is something for everyone. Here we have listed the 10 biggest festivals in the world, so you can shine and enjoy. The Polish Woodstock, named after the famous 1969 festival in New York, is a fitting tribute to rock, pop, metal and folk.
With artists like The Prodigy playing in front of more than 1 million people, the festival has a history of big crowds and a special atmosphere. Admission is free and the festival's motto is “Love, Friendship and Music” in honor of the original festival that changes consciousness. Africans know how to have fun and the Mawazine Festival in Morocco is a testament to that. With an annual attendance of around 2.65 million, they perform major events such as Christina Aguilera, Justin Timberlake and Rod Stewart, as well as a large number of African luminaries such as Amadou & Mariam and Tinariwen.
A celebration of Moroccan culture and arts, was initiated by King Mohammad IV's personal secretary and is still alive as an incredible tribute to African music. New Orleans, Louisiana, is one of the most important cities in jazz history, and the New Orleans Jazz & Heritage Festival is perhaps its most important musical event. As you can see from its name, the New Orleans Jazz & Heritage Festival focuses on celebrating the city's vibrant history. Recruit the talent of the best local musicians in New Orleans (not only in jazz but in other genres as well). The music festival is historically significant because its first editions were overshadowed by the racial segregation of the Jim Crow era. If the & Heritage New Orleans Jazz Festival is about celebrating local culture, the Essence Music Festival is about celebrating the global impact of African American culture.
After all, the festival is organized by Essence, a magazine aimed at African American women. With a record attendance of 470,000 people, the Essence Music Festival has welcomed artists such as Mariah Carey, Diana Ross, John Legend, Snoop Dogg, The Roots, Solange and Janelle Monáe in recent years (to name just a few).The Sziget Festival takes place in Budapest, Hungary, and takes place on a 108-hectare (266 acre) island. It's seven days of the best pop-rock music and features fan-favorite performances from around the world. Interestingly, the first editions of the festival were organized in the 90s as a response to the crisis of music festivals motivated by the lack of government funding. As one of the most vibrant, populated and iconic cities in the world, it makes sense that Rio de Janeiro, in Brazil, would also be home to the equally legendary Rock in Rio.
In 1985, Brazilian marketer Robert Medina announced the creation of the festival as a way to celebrate the end of João Goulart's dictatorship. The largest edition of Rock in Rio to date brought together a staggering 700,000 attendees. The Rock in Rio Lisbon event is one of the biggest music festivals in Europe, with more than 350,000 people in the third edition. While some sources claim that the first Rock in Rio was attended by a milestone of 1.5 million people, I couldn't find enough evidence to support this claim. The festival pays homage to the classic Woodstock Festival of 1969, and Woodstock traditions such as mud baths are an important part of pol'and'rock culture. Until 1999 Summerfest held Guinness World Record for largest music festival in world and remains very close to podium today. The iconic Montreal International Jazz Festival is like Christmas Day for jazz lovers and its scale is impressive.
As expected it's biggest jazz festival in world. Last editions have brought together more than 3 000 artists spread over more than 20 stages with total approximately 650 performances per edition. The second largest music festival in world can be visited Rabat Morocco all places once 2 5 million visitors attended.
