The Top 7 Festivals of 2013

Festival Season is just around the corner. Everyone has got their tickets... i haven't yet but i've got several ones i'm looking at. So heres my opinion of the top 10 festivals of 2013

1. Glastobury Festival  - UK -  26th -30th June

Bruce Springsteen Performing there in 2009

What else could it be? honestly every year it will top each list, and each year the line up improves. This year you could be in with a chance to see Rolling Stones, Arctic Monkeys, Mumford & Sons, Elvis Costello, Dizzee Rascal, Primal Scream and many many more.

2. Reading & Leeds Festival - UK  -  21st - 25th August

A Best of Video about the festival.

The reading and leeds festival is also known for constantly churning out incredible line ups and this year it isn't different with a ticket to this you could see;  Green Day, Fall Out Boy, Biffy Clyro, Eminem, Nine Inch Nails and many more.

3. Rock Werchter - Belgium  -  4th - 7th July 

Tame Impala performing (not at Rock Werchter)

Now i was unaware of this festival until today when me and a few friends decided that we wanted to go. We couldn't though because i'm going to see the rolling stones at hyde park on the 6th of July.  However if i had been able to go i would of seen. Green Day, Blur, Sigur Ros, Rammenstein, Tame Impala and another load of gifted musicians

4.  Rock Am Ring/ Rock In Park- Germany - 7th - 9th June

Tenacious D live in 2011.
Now this is a good line up, however unless you've already got tickets you're out of luck... I tried myself and failed to get the tickets, alas i can no longer see... Paramore, Green Day, Thirty Seconds to Mars and loads of other bands.

5. Open'Er Festival  - Poland  - 3rd - 6th July

Bat For Lashes performing there last year.

This festival usually offers a wide range of music so no one should feel left out. Among the many choices are Arctic Monkeys, Blur, Kings Of Leon, Queens Of The Stone Age.

6. Isle Of Wight Festival - UK - 13th June - 16th June

Pearl Jam performing here in 2012

We've all heard of this festival, right? Jimi Hendrix, The Who, the best festival ever excluding Woodstock in 1970. Well this year isn't as good, but it does have; the stone roses, the killers and Bon Jovi.

7. Austin City Limits - USA-  4th - 6th October & 11th - 13th October

RadioHead Performing here.
Now i'd never heard of this one until i thought "what will my american readers think" so i quickly added on an american one after seeing the line up which is: Red Hot Chili Peppers, Neil Young, Black Keys, Etc. AND JACK WHITE!!!
