A music festival is a community event oriented towards live performances of singing and instrument playing that is often presented with a theme such as musical genre (e.g., blues, folk, jazz, classical music), nationality, locality of musicians, or holiday.
They are commonly held outdoors, with tents or roofed temporary stages for the performers. Often music festivals host other attractions such as food and merchandise vending, dance, crafts, performance art, and social or cultural activities. At music festivals associated with charitable causes, there may be information about social or political issues. Many festivals are annual, or repeat at some other interval. Some, including many rock festivals, are held only once.
Some festivals are organized as for-profit concerts and others are benefits for a specific charitable cause. Another type of music festival is the educative type, organized annually in local communities, regionally, or nationally, for the benefit of amateur musicians of all ages and grades of achievement.
A Quora post:
This is extremely subjective for a start.
If you are looking for some of the biggest production value festivals with huge stages and light configurations then you will want to go to EDC/ULTRA/Tomorrowland
However, these festivals are very generic in musical variety as in you will hear the same tracks multiple times throughout the festival due to the caliber of the mainstream DJs who play there. An alternative festival which still features great music and headline DJ's is Mysterland.
Something to bear in mind also is the ticket cost of the really big festivals such as Ultra which had tickets costing upwards of $500 for this years Miami version of the festival.
