2022 may have been a disorganized and chaotic mess from start to finish, but on the plus side – music festivals are back! The European festival scene came roaring into this summer for the first time since 2019 and I couldn’t have been happier to see the industry recovery.
I started off the summer with a return to the first festival I ever attended in Europe and an insane double weekend of indie rock. Then it was off camping in the English countryside for a UK interpretation of Americana, a pretty lake in Macedonia, a mega-festival in Madrid, and a volcano in the middle of the Atlantic. I dropped into Kosovo for the first time to see a festival put on by Dua Lipa’s father, dipped into Albania to cover our first ever festival in that country (also put on by Dua Lipa’s father), hit up the iconic Olympic Stadium in Munich, and finished the season back home in New England for a first-year fest.
Along the way, I took 35,000+ photos and wrote a few articles about the season. Enjoy and hopefully we will have even more for you in 2023!
