To inspire your next group or private charter with us, we’ve rounded up the biggest and most popular festivals in the world.

Donauinselfest, Vienna, Austria

Vienna has a rich music history. Mozart, Haydn, Mahler and Bruckner all called this sophisticated city home at one time or another and it has forever been a safe haven for music. It's no wonder, then, that the biggest festival in the world now occurs here. 

Donauinselfest, or the Danube Island Festival, attracted a whopping 3.1 million people in 2016 and continues to invite record numbers to its open-air musical venue every year. Situated on an island on the Danube River, this free-to-view music festival has featured internationally-renowned acts such as Dua Lipa, Sean Paul, Billie Eilish and Taylor Swift. 

If you want to experience the world’s biggest music festival, why not travel there in style and privacy? Call one of our dedicated account managers, who can arrange your group or private jet charter to Vienna from start to finish.

Summerfest, Wisconsin, USA

Established in 1968, Summerfest held the title of the “world's largest music festival” by Guinness World Records in 1999 and it still claims to be the biggest on its official website. 

For nine days in September, Henry Maier Festival Park in Milwaukee hosts over 800 acts across 11 stages, along with hundreds of thousands of festival-goers. Due to its grandeur and stature on the world stage, Summerfest invites some of the biggest and well-known musical acts, such as Guns N’ Roses, Miley Cyrus, The Killers, Jennifer Lopez and Snoop Dog.   

Call one of our friendly account managers who can arrange your group or private jet charter to Milwaukee for Summerfest.

Glastonbury, Somerset, England

The UK’s biggest music festival and the world’s largest greenfield music and performing arts event in the world, Glastonbury is a thrilling five-day cultural melting pot. 

There’s something for everyone at this festival. As well as high-octane musical acts around the Pyramid Stage, there are also more chilled-out regions within the 900 acres of grassland, like the West Holts and Acoustic areas. The party never really stops here, but when you do need to sleep, there’s a mini-city full of tents where you can rest your head. If roughing it isn’t for you, Glastonbury also offers a range of glamping tents with their own toilet facilities.

If you want to combine your glamping with luxury travel, one of our account managers can help you arrange your group or private jet charter, and your helicopter transfer, to Glastonbury, along with private chauffeur-driven transfers to and from the airport or helipad.

Tomorrowland, Boom, Belgium

Since its first edition in 2005, Tomorrowland has quickly become one of the biggest festivals in Europe, attracting hundreds of thousands of people every year. The music extravaganza takes place in July at the peak of Europe’s summer and is held on the outskirts of the picturesque town of Boom in Flanders, Belgium.

The festival’s award-winning Mainstage is the centrepiece of the event and its most iconic feature, with the design changing every year based on the festival’s main theme. However, there are plenty of other incredible stages for revellers to enjoy, including the warehouse-style Freedom stage, the hanging plants and fountains of the Garden of Madness, and the dark ambience of the Rave Cave.

If you’re travelling to Tomorrowland this year and want to arrive in style, contact one of our specialists about charting a private aircraft.

Rock in Rio, Rio de Janeiro, Brazil

Rock in Rio originated in 1985 as a semi-regular music festival based in Rio de Janeiro. However, over the years, it has become so well recognised that it is now hosted in other locations around the world such as Lisbon, Madrid and Las Vegas. 

The festival owners (Live Nation Entertainment) want to continue growing the already-huge event and are now aiming to stage the festival in multiple locations every year, with 2022 seeing Rio de Janeiro, Lisbon and Santiago all hosting the concert.  

Rock in Rio has seen the likes of Queen, AC/DC, Rod Stewart, Prince, Taylor Swift and Ed Sheeran all headline throughout its illustrious history and continues to bring in the biggest acts to delight its expectant crowds.    

Wherever Rock in Rio is held, we can arrange your group or private jet charter there. Call one of our dedicated account managers to get your trip itinerary started.

Coachella, California, USA

First held in 1999, Coachella has grown rapidly to become one the biggest events on the American calendar. The annual festival is held at the Empire Polo Club in Indio, California, on the edge of the Colorado Desert where acts perform across two fun-fuelled weekends.

Coachella showcases both popular and emerging artists, but the real reason festival-goers keep going back year on year is because of the event’s exciting, positive and carefree vibe, along with the consistently sunny weather. In recent years, Coachella has also been associated with celebrity sightings, so much so that street style photographers, media and paparazzi all want to get into the event for exclusives.

If you’ve got tickets for Coachella, call one of our dedicated account managers, who will arrange a charter to suit your needs.

Electric Daisy Carnival, Las Vegas, USA

It’s Vegas, which means big, bold and extravagant. Electric Daisy Carnival (EDC) fits in perfectly in ‘Sin City’ and has become the largest electronic dance music festival in North America. 

Attracting nearly one million fans annually, EDC is a unique multi-day festival that pushes the boundaries of imagination and constantly sets new standards in the live entertainment industry. Its flagship is held at the Las Vegas Motor Speedway, but it has now branched out to feature in other major cities in Mexico and Japan. 

Flying to Las Vegas for EDC? Let Air Charter Service fly you there in style and privacy. Call one of our account managers, who will plan your group or private jet charter from start to finish.

Ultra Music Festival, Miami, Florida

Another huge event on the electronic music scene, Ultra Music Festival brings in some of the best acts to the sultry shores of Miami, Florida.  

Started in 1999 and named after a Depeche Mode album, this event is known for two things: a fantastically stacked line-up and an all-out party atmosphere. Every year, over 150,000 people pack Bayfront Park to hear the biggest names in electronic music and hip hop and enjoy the fine Florida weather and beaches.
