I am fully aware of the fact that most of us are currently in an office, working hard, or at school or in the bus, trying to make our way through the rat race that surrounds us on a daily basis. But let’s be honest for a moment and admit that we’d give everything to be somewhere else, somewhere electric, in a place crowded with people just like us, people with fire in their eyes and drinks in their hands, hair swaying along with the sound of the music that’s blasting from everywhere around us. It’s never too early or inappropriate to dream about a music festival and the freedom that floods your veins as you bang your head to the alert rhythm of the music, no matter how many essays you have to write or how many extra hours your boss is kindly forcing you to work.
Bashfully moving my leg to the pace of the music coming from my laptop ( and multi-tasking by thinking of other ways of making money so as to actually go to one of these festivals this summer) , I made up a list of the hottest, wildest and most thrilling music festivals that are about to take place this spring and summer. Check it out!
