Hard Rock Calling Music Festival in London

Comments  (0)

Feb 6, 2013 —  Europe offers some of the best music festivals around the globe, where diverse crowds flock to historic grounds, plazas, and public gardens to see and hear world-class musicians and top international DJs. Festivalgoers can sing and dance freely at one of Amsterdam’s gorgeous parks or sway to the music among the collection of rare carnivorous plants and flowers at Le Parc Floral in Paris.

Even more impressive than the beauty of Europe’s festival venues is the quality of the performers. In London alone, Bruce Springsteen and the E Street Band, Pearl Jam, and Paul McCartney have all graced the same Hyde Park stage.

European festival attendees aren’t limited to classic rock performers in Cool Britannia; the progressive music fan can head to the Sónar Music Festival in Barcelona and listen to the sweet sounds of hip-hop performers, trance and house music technicians, or the electronic stylings of world-renowned DJs like Maceo Plex.

No matter what kind of music a local or tourist desires, European music festivals have it covered with everyone from staple British folk rockers Mumford & Sons to Swedish electro-pop newcomers Niki and The Dove.

Check out our eclectic list of European music festivals or risk the chance of missing out on this superabundance of excellent music!
