Biggest music festivals not to be missed

Throughout the year, world famous music festivals are hosted in various countries, and they draw thousands of music lovers from all over. With so many happening each year, how do you choose which ones to go to? We helped Air Charter Service pick out the top ones for 2016 in The 12 Biggest Music Festivals in 2016 that you should think about attending.

Coachella Valley Music and Arts Festival

Owing its origins to a dispute between Pearl Jam and a company called Ticketmaster Entertainment in the 1990s, this festival has become one of the most well-known American festivals to date. With an estimated 198,000 ticket sales in 2015, be sure to get your tickets early, which cost £286 for a weekend pass. Previous headliners include A$AP Rocky, Calvin Harris, Ellie Goulding, Rae Sremmurd, Sia, and Parov Stelar.

Glastonbury Music Festival

Having been around for 45 years, this UK based festival is known as the largest open-field music festival in the world. The festival management organises donations to numerous charities from the profits of the festival, which showcases not only music, but also film. Tickets cost £228 for the weekend, and with headliners like Coldplay and Muse it’s no wonder why. The festival is renowned for being rainy, so wellies and a jacket are a must have. For more details click here

Isle of Wight

Known for its rock and pop performances from legends like Queen, Stereophonics, Faithless, Mike + The Mechanics, The Corrs and Iggy Pop, the festival is also known for featuring up and coming bands and DJs. With attendance at 58,000 people in 2015, this popular festival costs £195 for the weekend and is held in the middle of the UK summer, although the weather can be unpredictable so a warm gear should be packed just incase. For more details click here

Headliners have included top international acts like Tenacious D, Wiz Khalifa, Chvrches, Foals, S!Vas, and The Red Hot Chili Peppers, and it attracts crowds of up to 133,000, from all over the world. Similar to Glastonbury, Roskilde divides the proceeds amongst charities.
