May 14, 2013 —  There's no need to stay cooped up inside, staring at the glow of your TV for entertainment. Thanks to the outdoor arts festivals around the world, there are plenty of reasons to get off the couch and out in the sun. From immersive art experiences to innovative installations, these events are sure to flex your eye muscles.

In San Francisco, the Outside Lands Music and Arts Festival is an indie haven full of art, music, food, and wine. Culture junkies flock to Golden Gate Park for concerts, artwork by local favorites, and even a wine area where revelers can sample from a wide range of the region’s vinos. Through a partnership with Juxtapoz, this festival features curated visual experiences ranging from live painting to performance art pieces.

Over in Germany, some of the best wearable art goes on display with everything from colorful costumes to elaborate works of high fashion at the Berlin Pride Festival. This celebration of freedom and LGBT rights offers a wide range of events and activities throughout the city. From fashion shows to club nights, and even a job expo at the MILK Fair, there’s plenty to do at this pride festival.

East of Los Angeles, music lovers head for the legendary Coachella Valley Music and Arts Festival. With massive moving sculptures and art tents, music isn’t all this party has to offer. Coachella brings out both audiophiles and art hounds.

Whether you’re looking to see work by independent artists, or feel like dancing in an artistically-inspired tent, the outdoor arts festivals around the world will have you soaking up creativity through all your senses.
