Reckon Coachella is the biggest music festival in the world? Think again. These five festivals pull in millions of visitors each year and some of them don’t cost a thing to enter.
Donauinselfest (Vienna, Austria)
Over 3 million people attend this Austrian festival each year. It is officially the biggest music festival in the world and it hosts over 200 acts on 11 stages. It’s also completely free to enter!
Mawazine Festival (Morrocco)
Annual attendance for the Mawazine Festival sits at around 2.6 million. The festival celebrates Moroccan culture but also pulls in international artists like Christina Aguilera.
Rock in Rio (Brazil)
The largest festival in South America is also one of the most exciting festivals in the world. It hosts some of the biggest names in the music industry and is extremely colorful and a whole load of fun.
Woodstock ’69 may be one of the most famous festival events in history, but one of the biggest festivals in the world at present is Woodstock in Poland. They pull in some pretty big names and entry is also free.
Coachella is not, in fact, the largest festival in the U.S. It’s actually Summerfest, which pulls in shy of a million people. The popularity largely comes from the fact that tickets cost a measly $20.
