Background info for those booking festivals and fairs tickets
What's the difference between a festival and a fair? Sometimes it's not so much. Fairs have historically been commercial events, bringing together merchants and craftspeople from miles around, but in the modern age they have become more focused on having fun than selling things. As for festivals, they have always been multi-day events that celebrate communities, art, music, food or sport.
There are festivals and fairs for everyone these days. For instance, there are plenty of beer and wine festivals. From Oktoberfest in Munich to the Great British Beer Festival at Earl's Court and the Brewski Festival in Pennsylvania, if you love to make merry, there's no shortage of options.
And there's an almost endless schedule of arts festivals too. There are incredible music events like Coachella, Roskilde or Glastonbury, interior design events like Grand Designs Live, art events like Frieze, and all-round cultural feasts like the Edinburgh International Festival.
Then there are the world's greatest parties. Book a flight to Rio for Carnival, be in New Orleans for Mardi Gras or visit the Feria Pachuca in Mexico. Whether you are a committed hedonist, a cultivated art fan or a music obsessive, there are festivals and fairs tickets for you.
Highlights from the world of festivals and fairs
Festivals and fairs are events that bring thousands of people together, often in magical ways. For example, imagine being in the massive crowds at Woodstock as Jimi Hendrix took the stage, or watching Miles Davis and Thelonious Monk at the 1964 Newport Jazz Festival.
When people get together to celebrate the things they love, the results are almost always spectacular. Share in the festival vibe by attending great film festivals like Cannes, Venice or Berlin. Immerse yourself in blissed out crowds at the Benicassim dance music festival, or join the gastronomes and sample once-in-a-lifetime dishes at food events like Taste of London or the Charleston Food and Wine Festival in South Carolina.
