If you want to be a true expert in music festivals and do not want to miss the early bird tickets, take a look at this list with the best music festivals in Europe in 2019, and decide as soon as possible where to live your craziest summer nights.

To elaborate this list we have decided to follow the hottest bands across the main music platforms and see where they take us (and their millions of fans!). But also, we have consulted forums and pages to see which lineups are the most exciting this year.


Creamfields is the birthplace of Dance, Electronics and alternatives styles such as Drum & Bass, Grime and Trance. In short, it’s a musical space designed to escape from the world and merge with loud music and powerful lighting. Each year Creamfields is consecrated as one of the most imposing European festivals in the world and its low price, compared to other events such as the Tomorrowland, makes it even more appealing.
