Spring music festivals

Spring is slowly creeping into the air and many of us are looking even further towards the summer with all this talk of festivals and line up announcements. Here at Hostels.com we love a good festival so we do! We simply can't wait for the summer season as we want to get our festival groove on and soon! So here's a selection of some of the many great festivals happening between now and the start of the summer that should satisfy all your festival going needs!

The Camden Crawl in London is on for May 1st and 2nd 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.

Another festival that is similar to The Camden Crawl is The Great Escape in Brighton. With over 350 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 13th to 15th 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!

A new comer to the pre-summer festivals is the Brussels Electronic Music Festival, or BEMF. Not only is it only a newbie but it's also one of the cheapest festivals on the go at the moment. The BEMF takes place around the arty surroundings of the BOZAR and is a must for any electronic music lovers looking for an early start to the festival season.

And if you happen to be in Austria on May 12th to 15th then check out Springfest in Graz. For €54 a ticket you'll get entry into multiple venues around the city for some top class music acts!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!
