The Top Music Festivals Left This Summer

    Autumn in the northern hemisphere might officially begin on 22 September but that doesn’t mean the summer festivals have to stop. From bustling cities to sunny beaches, we’ve found some of the world’s best festivals happening in the next couple of months.

  • Bumbershoot, Washington, USA

    Now in its 42nd year and featuring an eclectic line-up designed to suit everyone, Bumbershoot is a great arts-and-music festival held in the Seattle Centre, right in downtown Seattle. With music, film, comedy, spoken word, dance, theatre, performance and visual arts, this festival is great for families as well as music fiends. Some of this year’s highlights include Jane’s Addiction, Tony Bennet, Skrillex, Gotye, Alela Diane and Mudhoney. Best of all, as it’s in the city centre, there’s no tents or mud required!
