Good weather arrives and, with it, the time to enjoy our favorite outdoor music in the form of Festivals.

We have made a chronological selection of what could be the most spectacular spring and summer festivals in the world, not only because of the cast of artists who perform in them, but also because of the place where they are held, a unique scenography comes from visual effects that animate to followers and non-followers to attend the best festivals. If you have not yet registered on your wish list for this year attend any of these events should you, because you will live a unique experience.

Coachella Fest

This particular event, called Coachella Valley Music and Arts Festival - although better known as Coachella Fest -, is a great music festival that first appeared in 1999 with genres as different as alternative rock, hip hop and music. electronics. It is celebrated in the Californian town of Indio, United States.

The most particular thing about this festival is that it is dressed in hippie clothes from the 70s! In addition, numerous celebrities attend it, which makes it one of the most posture-filled festivals worldwide.

This year will be celebrated on two weekends: from 13 to 15 and from 20 to 22 April. And among the singers and groups that are expected in this edition are Eminem , David Byme , Tyler The Creator , Benjamin Clementine , The Weekend or the very Beyoncé , to name just a few.

Primavera Sound

This festival, one of the most important of those held in Spain - with the permission of many others, such as the Starlite de Marbella - takes place in Barcelona between May 30 and June 3.

Its first edition was in the year 2001 in the Poble Espanyol, although since 2005 it has its headquarters in the Forum Park, an enclosure with a greater capacity and next to the sea.

This festival has a marked urban character , with a wide range of groups that present different musical proposals from the independent field, along with artists of proven track record, covering different styles and genres such as pop, rock or electronic music.

This year we can enjoy artists like Arctic Monkays , Björk , Nick Cave and The Bad Seeds , The National , among others.

Sound

Until 2012, the Sonar by day was held in the heart of Barcelona. However, before the growing number of attendees, in 2013 it moved to the Fira de Barcelona in Montjuic , in order to expand its capacity, but without losing its central and urban character. The Sónar by night does not count on a stable enclosure, having changed several times of location.

Since its first edition, this festival wanted to create its own style that identifies it, not only with music, but with other artistic expressions, so its program includes exhibitions and conferences.

Sónar has wanted to transfer its philosophy to other cities in the world, celebrating its first international appointment in London in 2002. Since then, the experience has been repeated on five continents, including appointments in cities such as Chicago, Buenos Aires, Rome or Seoul, among others. .

This year will be held from June 14 to 16 , and will feature artists like Alva Noto & Ryuichi Sakamoto , Alizzz , Alicia Carrera or A-Trak , to name a few.

Glastonbury

It is considered one of the best festivals in the world for the important poster of artists who have participated since its inception in 1970, the most important of the moment of the pop and rock universe. Such is its relevance, which has led to films and albums compilations for years.

The organizer and main precursor is Michael Eavis , a farmer from the valley where it is celebrated (Somerset, England), who decided to organize the first edition after attending a Led Zeppelin open-air concert at the Bath Festival back in 1970.

The first festivals had a gratuitous character and a clear influence of the hippie aesthetic prevailing at the time, something that has continued to be maintained until today.

Exceptionally, there will be no edition this 2018, but promises to return with renewed vigor from June 26 to June 30, 2019.

Tomorrowland

Festival of Belgian nationality of electronic music born for the first time in 2005, although it was not until 2011 that it became famous worldwide thanks to its spectacular staging and promotional video. In fact, today is the number 1 festival worldwide in terms of marketing.

Being one of the best-known festivals in the world, it is not surprising that last year attracted some 360,000 people from more than 70 different nationalities.

Among the artists that will participate this year are Disciples , Cosmic Gate , Jonas Blue , Zatox , ... and among the Spanish artists are expected Edu Imbernon and Paco Osuna .

In the edition of this year, the place chosen for its celebration is the Belgian town of Boom, and it will be divided into two parts: the days 20, 21 and 22, and 27, 28 and 29 July. There will also be an "Iberian" version in Barcelona on Saturday, July 28.

Mad Cool

Festival of rock, indie and electronic music born in 2015 in Madrid to reinforce both tourism in the city and to give space to different artistic expressions.

Since its first edition it has become one of the most important dates of the "festivalero" calendar in Spain. It is celebrated the weekend after the Pride Festivities, leaving in between a weekend of rest.

It is just three editions this festival has managed to bring together in its poster almost 150 top-level artists, including several icons of the history of rock, but also artists who assume the future of national and international contemporary pop music and electronic music.

In this year's edition, which will take place on July 12, 13 and 14 , will be present Pearl Jam , Massive Attack , Franz Ferdinand , Snow Patrol , Underworld , or the fireproof Depeche Mode , among many others.
