Festivals are a great reason to travel: as well as discovering a new place, you can also celebrate with locals and share traditions both old and new. Whether you celebrate Easter in a Catholic country, go no-holds-barred at Carnaval, head to Nevada for Burning Man, rock out at a music festival, or take part in one of the many crazy annual events around the world, you’re sure to have a fantastic time.

Summer festivals podcast

Thousands of festivals of all sizes are held around the world, so any list of “the best festivals” has to leave out some amazing events. In this case, we’ve chosen one (or maybe two) festivals from each continent, that we either love, or would love to attend. Listen to our Best summer festivals around the world podcast.
