If you would like to attend a festival have a look at the FESTIVAL DATES.. 

While you will likely find a festival visit to be one of the highlights of your trip, you need to be aware that you will then be visiting at the height of peak season and therefore need to be prepared for some congestion and possible shortages of accommodation.

We advise that if you want to visit one of the most popular festivals you should try to book at least 6 months ahead to get the best choice of flights and hotels.

You may also be interested in some of the newer themed community festivals which have been chosen to encourage tourists to visit in different seasons and more out of the way places. These include:
