The United States tops the list of the countries with the most music festivals in 2023 with 512 music festivals, 18 of which draw massive crowds of over 50,000 people

Whether it’s rock, jazz, hip-hop or EDM, music festivals gather thousands of people, sometimes even millions, for a few days of dancing, partying, and enjoying a unique atmosphere. From Coachella to Glastonbury, Tomorrowland to Sziget, the 2023 music festival season is well underway. But which country is home to the highest number of music festivals? The team at SlotsMove has analysed the number of music festivals in nearly 40 countries to identify the festival hotspot of the world.

Some of the largest music festivals are held in North America and across Europe, but Australia is also home to a large number of events, according to data extracted from what is probably the largest reliable listing resource for music festivals, Music Festival Wizard. Our team searched the website for festivals held or scheduled to be held between 31 December 2022 and 31 December 2023. The results included festivals of all sizes and genres, happening both indoors and outdoors.

It should be noted that only selected countries were analysed, namely, those nations considered to be of “very high human development” in the United Nations Human Development Report for 2021/2022. Of all 66 countries listed in the report, 39 were also featured in the Music Festival Wizard listings. We should also point out that the festival listings are not complete, with new events being added on a regular basis.

The Countries with the Most Music Festivals in 2023

Music festivals are major events that are often held over several days, feature multiple artists and bands, and attract large audiences. They are a significant part of Western culture, and in the past few decades, they have become extremely popular all over the world alongside more traditional festivals such as cultural and religious ones. So it should come as no surprise that the largest number of music festivals are organised by the nations that have been most influential in the creation and shaping of pop culture.

United States, 512 Music Festivals in 2023

With 512 festivals in 2023, 18 of which will have an audience of more than 50 thousand people, the United States is the definitive music festival hotspot of the World. It is home to some of the largest and most significant festivals in contemporary music, including California’s Coachella and Miami’s hip-hop festival Rolling Loud, which have expanded to multiple locations in recent years.

Chicago’s iconic Lollapalooza also has many international versions, while Summerfest, held every year in Milwaukee, Wisconsin, has been dubbed “the largest music festival in the World”. It features 800 bands, twelve stages, and a huge number of food vendors, and is held over the course of three consecutive weekends in June and July.
