EDM festivals

The popularity of Electronic Dance Music is growing and with incredible EDM festivals across the world, it’s no wonder EDM lovers are on the hunt for some of the best festivals to check out.

Traveling is fun, but it’s even more fun when you can enjoy some of the biggest music events of the year. Of course, with so many festivals to choose from, it’s easy to understand why many of you are shy about buying tickets. Perhaps the greatest example would be the recent mis-Fyre Festival (one of the founders was arrested on charges of fraud). It was touted as the ultimate destination festival, with social media biggest influences promoting it, it seemed as though the Bahamas’ Fyre Festival was the place to be for anyone looking for a VIP experience and great music. Many attendees paid over $10,000 for their tickets only to arrive and discover a situation more akin to camping than a VIP event.
