Whether you’re planning a weekend trip or a longer holiday, there are some great festivals happening all over Europe this summer. Whether you want to go to the world’s largest medieval festival in Germany or witness the world’s biggest beer festival in Munich, there are plenty of options for anyone looking to enjoy some culture and celebrate with some friends.

Europe’s Best Festivals In Summer

World’s largest medieval festival

The world’s largest medieval festival takes place in Aarhus, Denmark. The event is held over five days in the first week of August and features markets, fairs, jousting tournaments and battle reenactments.

The festival started in 1982 and now attracts around 1 million visitors each year

Music and dance in Italy

Italy is known for its food, wine and music. If you’re looking for a way to experience this culture in all its glory then Italian festivals are a great option.

There are many festivals that take place during summer in Italy; here are some of the best ones:

  • Festival della Musica di Roma (Rome) – A free event held annually at various locations throughout Rome between June and September where classical music concerts are performed by local artists.
  • Festival Internazionale di Musica Contemporanea “Bolzano/Bozen” (Bolzano) – An annual festival which focuses on contemporary music performances held since 1974 every July/August at Teatro Strehler which can seat up to 1,200 people per show with additional seating available if necessary depending on demand at other venues within town such as Teatro Nuovo Giovanni XXIII & Auditorium Giuseppe Verdi which have capacities ranging from 500 up 2200 seats respectively depending upon configuration needs required at any given time throughout duration of festival period each year.”

Music, food and drink in the French capital

The Fete de la Musique is a very popular festival in Paris, held every year on June 21st. It is one of the biggest musical events in Europe and takes place across the city’s streets, parks and squares. The festival has been running since 1982 and features over 100 different events every day during its three-day run.

There are street performers who perform on stages set up in various parts of town: these include singers and bands playing jazz; classical pieces; rock music; salsa dancing or even hip hop routines! There are also food stalls selling snacks like burgers or ice cream cones – perfect for when you need something sweet after all that dancing!

The Fete de la Musique is extremely popular among young people because it allows them not only have fun but also meet others who share similar interests through their shared love of music.

The world’s biggest beer festival

Oktoberfest is a 16-day festival held annually from late September to the first weekend in October in Munich, Germany. It is one of the most famous events in Germany, with 6 million people attending every year. The highlight is always the first Sunday when thousands of people gather at Theresienwiese to celebrate an outdoor feast and drink beer together.

The world’s biggest book fair

The London Book Fair is the world’s largest annual publishing trade fair, attracting more than 100,000 visitors and exhibitors each spring. It takes place in March each year at the Olympia Conference Centre in Kensington, London.

The event includes a large exhibition floor where publishers present their latest books to potential buyers; a conference program featuring networking events and keynote speeches from industry leaders; plus dozens of side events such as panel discussions on topics like digital marketing and children’s literature.

A huge arts and culture festival in England’s capital city.

The Royal Festival Hall is one of London’s most iconic buildings, with its distinctive curved white facade and huge glass dome. It’s here that you’ll find London’s annual Southbank Centre International Festival, which takes place every June and is a huge arts and culture festival. During this time, it’s not just those who live in London who have the chance to enjoy it–if you’ve never been before or are planning on visiting sometime soon (and why wouldn’t you?), it’s worth checking out what this event has going on during your stay?

The Southbank Centre International Festival is an opportunity for everyone from all over Europe to explore new things together as well as celebrate what makes us different. With events ranging from dance performances to concerts by classical orchestras or jazz bands playing inside Queen Elizabeth Hall (one of three venues used alongside Royal Festival Hall), there really isn’t anything else quite like this!

There are some great festivals happening all over Europe this summer

There are some great festivals happening all over Europe this summer. Here’s a list of our favorites, with their dates and locations:

  • The Isle of Wight Festival (June 21-24) is held on the south coast of England at Seaclose Park in Newport. This three-day music festival features acts like Noel Gallagher’s High Flying Birds and The Smashing Pumpkins as headliners. It also has comedy acts like Bill Bailey performing stand-up routines throughout the weekend before each night’s concert begins at 8pm sharp! You can get tickets starting at £149 ($200 USD). If you’d rather avoid the crowds and camp out in your own tent instead, there’s plenty of space available near by where you can park up for £20 ($25 USD) per night! The festival grounds are open 24 hours so people who want to keep partying late into Sunday morning won’t have any problem finding somewhere nearby where they can crash out after getting tired from dancing nonstop during Saturday night’s performance by Duran Duran…


Whether you’re looking for an adventure or just want to enjoy some good music and food, there are plenty of festivals happening across Europe this summer. The world’s largest medieval festival takes place in Poland, while Italy’s celebrations of art and culture are always worth visiting. If you’re travelling around Europe then be sure not miss out on any of these amazing events!
