    Default Other music festivals

    I was looking for some suggestions for other music festivals to go to that are like coachella. Preferably in the US or UK. I know of Sasquatch and Bonnaroo, but i just wanted to see if there are any other decent ones to go to.

    I'm looking to go to another festival to help with my post-coachella depression.

    There are plenty of Central European festivals that are miles better than the UK ones. Primavera, Roskilde and Pukkelpop for starters.

    Glastonbury, Leeds/Reading, Isle of Wight, V Festival, T in the Park are all in the UK.
    Then in Europe you have Pinkpop, Roskilde, Benicassim, Rock am Ring, rock werchter, montreaux, exit, oxegen, pukklepop.

    I would say the V festival in England is the most like coachella from those I have been to. The premier event is glastonbury-held on 900 acres, 135,000 people and costs some $33million to produce. Tickets have sold-out!
    For the others Benicassim is great, by the beach with music till dawn. Leeds/Reading are faves of mine-tend to be heavier music. Roskilde is wonderfully well organised and peaceful. Pinkpop reminds me of coachella in many ways. Rock am ring tends to very heavy with bands like metallica. Oxygen and T in the park are just great too!
    Lot of choices really! I would pick the mammoth glastonbury each and every time-hundreds of acts, art, music, film, dance, comedy, circus and just plain weirdness.

    If you like electronic then Ultra in Miami is good. Techno's US festival is DEMF in Detroit Memorial weekend.

    Looks like Rothbury Festival in Michigan is happening again (second year.) I can't quite figure this one out but it looks interesting.
