May Music Festivals

The summer is slowly starting to creep in for many parts of the world and we're getting excited with all this talk of festivals and line up announcements. Here at Hostels.com we love a good festival! We simply can't wait for the summer season as we want to get our festival groove on. Here's a selection of some of the many great festivals happening in the next month or so to get you warmed up before the major summer festivals kick off.

The Camden Crawl takes place in London on May 4th to 6th and you can get a weekend ticket that allows you entry into most of the venues where all the gigs take place, with a couple of exceptions, mainly the Roundhouse. Lots of great established bands along with new and upcoming bands play at the Camden Crawl every year. It's a great weekend and brings Camden even more so alive with a festival atmosphere. The Camden Crawl is also coming to Dublin this year and takes place the following weekend – May 11th and 12th.

Another festival that is similar to The Camden Crawl is The Great Escape in Brighton. With over 300 acts due to play at this year's festival, there will be plenty of choice for all tastes. The Great Escape is a huge draw for music lovers all over the UK and abroad. It takes place on May 10th to 12th and if you do have a big name act that you simply must see here then make sure you get queuing early as the big acts fill up quick!

And if you happen to be in Austria from May 16th to 20th then check out Springfest in Graz. For €88 you’ll get a ticket offering entry into multiple venues around the city for some top class music acts for 4 days.

So there you go... a selection of music festivals to satisfy your needs until the summer rolls around! And don't forget to book your hostel here... we reckon you're going to need a lot of sleep after all that music and dancing!
