The "Coachella Valley Music and Arts Festival" - or simply Coachella - is not really considered a festival in summer 2024, as it takes place in April. But it's all the more famous for it. Around a quarter of a million people flock to the festival grounds on each of the two weekends. They enjoy big and small music acts from pop, rock, hip-hop and electronica. The line-up is the same on both weekends. This year's headliners will be Lana Del Rey, Tyler the Creator, Doja Cat and No Doubt.

Glastonbury Festival, England

When: June 26 to 30, 2024
Tickets: approx. € 415
Guests: 200.000 total

While there are still tickets available for Coachella this year, it's getting harder and harder to get them for Glastonbury Festival. No wonder, because here too, the line-up is impressive every year. While Elton John was on stage last year, you can expect Coldplay, Dua Lipa and SNZ at this year's festival. Between the individual acts, you can go to a yoga session, get creative or go vintage shopping. Once you've been there, you'll be convinced: Glastonbury is the best festival in the world!

Roskilde Festival, Denmark

When: June 29 to July 6, 2024
Tickets: approx. € 322
Guests: 130,000 in total

Over 100,000 festival fans celebrated in Copenhagen last year with Queens of the Stone Age and Blur as headliners. The festival, which has been taking place since 1971, is known for its first-class main acts. For example, Bob Dylan, Bruno Mars, Gorillaz, Foo Fighters, Paul McCartney, the Rolling Stones and Metallica have already fired up the crowds. In 2024, the headliners Doja Cat, Skrillex, Foo Fighters and Jane's Addiction will be performing. There's also a nice detail on the side: all of the festival's profits go to charitable organizations.

Tomorrowland, Belgium

When: July 19 to 29, 2024
Tickets: approx. € 370
Guests: 600,000 total

Tomorrowland 2023

Although it's one of the younger ones among the summer festivals of 2024, there's hardly anyone who doesn't know Tomorrowland. First held in 2005, a total of 600,000 visitors attended the open-air music festival over the two weekends in 2022. It's mainly about electronic music, but one special feature is the extraordinary setting of the festival. Huge buildings, decorations and people in costumes - each matching the theme of the year - frame the DJ sets. Speaking of music: Armin van Buuren, Swedish House Mafia and Hysta are among those heating up the stage this year.

Sziget Festival, Hungary

When: August 7 to 12, 2024
Tickets: from approx. € 230
Guests: 420,000 in total

Every summer since 1993, music enthusiasts have been celebrating on the Danube Island Óbudai in Budapest. There's music, open-air cinema, dancing, stores for shopping and even a children's program at 60 different venues. If you like, you can even take part in sports. One of the special features is that you can get in and out again and back in again with your ticket. In other words, there's also time for sightseeing in the Hungarian capital (or stylish accommodation away from the tents). This year's line-up includes Stormzy, Martin Garrix, Liam Gallagher and around 80 other acts.

Burning Man, Nevada/USA

When: August 25 to September 2, 2024
Tickets: from approx. € 540
Guests: 72.000

The last festival in summer 2024 will take place in the Black Rock desert. Instead of music, the focus is on the self and its representation. There'll also be art exhibitions, parties and performances. After nine days, the spectacle traditionally ends with the lighting of a giant sculpture - the so called (and famous) Burning Man. The festival has a different theme every year, and Burning Man was celebrated for the first time on June 21, 1986.
