Festivals You Should Pack Your Bags For!

We're all for having an epic time at these incredible festivals, but we also want you to stay safe. Become drug aware here.

 

While we're loving the festivals here in WA, there are a few across the world that you really need to pack your bags for.

It would be awesome to put life on hold and take a gap year (or a sabbatical if you wanna sound like an adult)... but if that's out of the question, throw these doozies on your bucket list.

 

Golden Plains, Victoria, March

Victorians love this festival which is held only a couple of hours from Melbourne over their Labour Day long weekend. Big Boi, The Avalanches and Mogwai are just three who will perform on one stage.

 

Coachella, California, April

Last year's festival saw 250,000 people through the gates to see a massive lineup which included Lady Gaga, Kendrick and Lorde. 

The names get bigger and better every year, so you're in for a treat whenever you go.

The Biggest Weekend, Northern Ireland, May

This one is similar to Glastonbury (below), so you can expect a similar vibe.

How cool is this, the BBC will broadcast the festival on a couple of its radio and TV stations, which would be awesome if you love live music without the camping.

 

Glastonbury, England, June

You can't call yourself a festival lover until you've been to arguably the biggest festival in the world, which is taking a break for 2018, replaced by The Biggest Weekend (above).

2017's lineup included our faves: Ed Sheeran, Katy Perry, Tove Lo and Shaggy.

Glastonbury gets bigger every year - except this year, obvs.

Splendour in the Grass, Byron Bay, July

We've all heard about this one. It's a great excuse to head east to our country's home of music.

2017's lineup included heaps of awesome acts: Vance Joy, The XX, Queens of the Stone Age, Tash Sultana.

Fuji Rock, Japan, July

Held at the Naeba Ski Resort in the middle of the Japanese summer, this festival would take many travellers by surprise with its unique and awesome values: Look after yourself, each other and respect nature, while being courteous when smoking.

Last year you would have caught Aussie boys, Jet; our fave Kiwi, Lorde; The XX and heaps of local artists and DJs.

 

 Burning Man, Nevada, August - September

The dustiest, hottest (heat) and hottest (sexy) festival in the world, where Black Rock Desert becomes a thriving city created by people like you.

In the past you would have seen Diplo and Major Lazer + many more amongst the art developed by truly talented and creative people.

This festival has gone a long way since burning a wooden figure on a San Francisco Beach in 1986. The theme for 2018's Burning Man is I, Robot.

Lollapalooza, many locations, many dates

This one never stays still. It's way easier to push you to the Lollapalooza website for more info. There are a number of weekends in locations scattered around South and North America. 

 

Let us know if we've left any good ones off the list on our socials!

 

Please look after yourself and your mates this festival season. One of the best ways to do that is to arm yourself with everything to get to the end of each event safely, including being drug aware. Find all the info here.
