It’s almost like a pilgrimage to the fanatics of music that makes it a point to attend this fiesta. We bring to you a list of the biggest celebrations that take place annually.

If you are tired of societal customs, fundamentally expressive, and need a place where you can ‘party till you drop’; Burning Man is where you must go. By far, it is incredibly different and unique. This music festival is a social experiment.

Coachella (Indio, California)

The trend setting music listings and art displays in California (the land of plenty of sunshine) have made Coachella the number- one music festival in North America. It has been a complete sell-out for the last three years. The festival has had the likes of Paul McCartney and Lenoard Cohen performing there.

Rock In Rio (Rio de Janerio, Brazil)
