6. Ultra Music Festival, Miami, USA
Fans of EDM always want to be in Miami when the Ultra Music Festival takes place, as it is one of the best partying festivals within the states. When you attend, plan on joining more than one hundred and sixty thousand other music fans, who will be ready and waiting to dance the hours away with you.
7. Burning Man, Nevada Desert, USA
This nine-day festival will have you listening to tunes and having the time of your life every second that you are there. In addition to the DJs, you will find yourself listening to amazing artists. Everyone will probably be dressed in wild costumes, so you may want to pick up a couple for yourself, so you do not look out of place as you are dancing and partying the days and nights away.
We recommend that you take everything that you need for the nine days with you, as you can sleep right there at the festival. They don’t sell food or beverages, so a cooler and bag of the essentials will be extremely helpful. You will know when the festival is coming to a close because they will burn the sixty-five foot wooden Temple Galaxia.
