Lollapozza

Festivals are more popular than ever, and it seems that their popularity will continue to rise in the coming period. Many festivals are built on the success of previous years, but there are some new entrants in the list. The summer this year looks bigger than ever with numerous festivals and ticket sales of the festivals have started pretty much this time around.

Everyone knows the major festivals such as Tomorrowland, Ultra Music Festival and Coachella, but there is so much more than just the greatest of the greatest. Like the traditional festivals like every year. Here we differentiate in European festivals and festivals in North America.
