Travel Tips for Traveling to Music Festivals Around the World


If you have never been to a music festival before, or have just been once and hated it, you might be wondering if you should go back. The truth is that there’s no one-size-fits-all answer to this question. It depends on what your personality is like and how much money you want to spend on the festival. The only thing we do know for sure is that traveling can be stressful! Here are some tips for making your trip more enjoyable:

Travel Tips for Traveling to Music Festivals Around the World

When do you go?

While there’s no right or wrong time to go to a music festival, there are some factors you should consider before deciding. The weather at each event will vary depending on location and season, so be sure to check out the forecast for your destination before you book your flight.

It’s also important to consider how crowded the festival will be–not just during its peak days but throughout its entire run. If an event has been going on for years and has developed a loyal fanbase over time, it may experience higher attendance than newer festivals with less buzz (and thus more open space).

Can you sell your ticket?

Yes, you can sell your ticket.

There are several options for selling your tickets to music festivals. The first option is to use the official website or app of the festival. For example, Coachella has a secondary market where you can list and buy tickets from other people who aren’t going anymore (or who got there early). You can also try Craigslist or even Facebook Marketplace if you want more exposure for your listing but don’t have time to deal with emailing back-and-forth with potential buyers (though this might not be worth it unless you’re selling at least three or four).

Another option is using resale sites like StubHub or Seatgeek which allow users to list their tickets at whatever price they want–and then take commissions on each sale made through those sites’ platforms!

How much does it cost to travel to the festival?

Travelling to music festivals is an exciting experience, but it’s also important to make sure that you’re prepared for the costs associated with attending. The following list will help you budget your trip:

  • Airfare: Airlines often offer special rates for people travelling to or from concerts and festivals. Check with your airline before booking your flight; they may have deals available if you book early enough!
  • Transportation: If there aren’t any convenient public transportation options near where the festival is being held, consider renting a car or taking taxis instead of relying on public transportation alone (especially if there are multiple days involved). This can save time as well as money because parking fees at venues tend to be high!

What are the weather conditions like during the festival?

Perhaps the most important thing to consider is the weather. The weather can change drastically in just a few hours, so be prepared for all possibilities. You’ll want to check the forecast before you go and pack accordingly. For example:

  • If it’s going to rain, bring a poncho or umbrella (and maybe even an extra pair of shoes).
  • If it’s hot out, dress lightly and bring sunscreen!
  • If there’s windy conditions predicted for your destination festival, pack clothes that won’t fly away when you least expect them too–maybe even consider packing some sturdy buttons or zippers on those items so they stay closed tight until you get where you’re going safely without having anything blow off during transit time between locations on site grounds during busy days like those leading up toward official kick off times when everyone starts showing up early so as not miss any performances by artists scheduled later in their respective schedules during daytime hours when most people tend not come until later after work ends around 6pm local time each day…

How many people are attending and how many performers are there?

The first thing you’ll want to consider when looking at any music festival is how many people are attending and how many performers will be there. This can give you a good sense of how crowded the event will be, which can help with planning your trip and deciding whether or not this festival is right for you.

Additionally, if the event has multiple stages or locations within its grounds, then it may be worth checking out what each stage has in store before purchasing tickets–you might find that one stage would better suit your tastes than another!

What is the dress code at this event? Is it formal, casual or likely to be hot so you will need a light weight outfit.

The dress code at music festivals is usually informal, so you can wear whatever you like. However, if it’s likely to be hot and/or you know there will be a lot of dancing, consider bringing something light and comfortable.

Bring comfortable shoes – it’s always best to wear shoes that are easy on your feet in case you need to walk around or dance all day long! Also, bring an umbrella in case it rains (which happens often) or a hat for shade if there isn’t much shade available when you’re at the festival. Lastly, sunscreen is essential as well because these events are held outdoors and tend not have adequate sunscreen stations set up throughout the grounds like other large public places do such as beaches or theme parks do so make sure not only bring some but reapply often throughout each day at these events since they go on all day long sometimes even into early morning hours depending upon how long their duration lasts which could range anywhere between one day up until four days depending upon which type of event one chooses attend during their travels abroad

What do I pack to make this an enjoyable trip? Do I need any special things for the music festival. Can I get these things where I am going or should I bring them with me?

If you are going to a music festival, there are many things that you should bring with you.

You will want to bring a camera so that when the sun goes down and all of the lights come on, your pictures will be amazing!

You should also bring an extra phone charger because it can be hard to find one at these events.

Another important thing is sunscreen so that when it is hot outside and there are no trees around, at least your face won’t burn! It is also good if there isn’t much shade available either because then this would help keep everyone cool during those hot summer days where temperatures can reach over 100 degrees Fahrenheit (38 degrees Celsius).

Sun glasses might seem like an obvious item but they aren’t always easy for everyone depending on what type of glasses they wear or if they have contacts instead which means having them close by would be helpful just incase something happens where one needs their eyes protected from bright lights coming from either fireworks displays or lasers being projected onto stages throughout various parts throughout each day’s performance schedule.”

Learn how to plan for a fun trip to a music festival

  • Plan ahead.
  • Check the weather.
  • Research the event and plan your schedule around this information.
  • Buy your ticket in advance to avoid any lines or confusion at the gate.
  • Bring a good camera to take pictures with friends, family and artists! Make sure it’s charged up before you go through security though…you don’t want your phone dying on you during an epic performance! Also bring comfortable shoes because there will be lots of walking involved throughout each festival day/night that requires sturdy footwear for long distances between stages or camping grounds (depending on where exactly you’re staying). And finally…be prepared for anything! Whether it’s rain clouds overhead threatening rain drops onto everyone’s heads as they dance under them happily; or maybe even heatstroke from being out too long without proper hydration…there are always unexpected things happening all around us so always stay alert while enjoying yourself at these events!


Now that you are ready to go, it’s time to start planning. You can look up information on the internet or ask your friends who have been there before. Hopefully they will have some good tips for you!
