Every music festival fan will be familiar with Tomorrowland Music Festival. The festival first took place on the 14th August 2005 in town Boom located in Belgium. Tomorrowland was organised by Dutch entertainment and medium enterprise called ID&T Belgium, and although they secured only handful of artists, the festival attracted over 9000 attendees. After successful launch, the music festival was repeated the following year. And perhaps the fact that DJ and producer Paul Oakenfold was performing contributed to festival’s popularity. Unfortunately, he cancelled his participation at the last minute due to tour with Madonna. However, 15 000 attendees enjoyed the festival even without his presence. In 2019, the attendance reached close to 480 000 people. The experience is further supported by a light show which brings the festival to another level.
Participants can bring their own food and drink too. Festival is also attended by people who enjoy smoking, however, they usually keep their kit safe in snuff box and occasionally they bring their full snuff set. In those days, it’s better to bring your own Nysberry, small and elegant version of snuff set, where you have everything in one place. You will also see people bringing their snorter kit to show off their collection of safe storage for their tobacco.
The Burning man festival has its roots in America, and it’s been running since mid-1980s. It was founded in 1986 by Larry Harvey who broke up with his partner. As a symbolic dot after this breakup, he took an effigy of a man to the Baker Beach in San Francisco and set it on fire. A small crowd gathered and soon it became an annual event. As Baker Beach was not suitable place to hold this festival, it was moved to uninhabited area in the state of Nevada. In the middle of desert, a festival town pops up for a week every year. Every artist gets a chance to express their signature art. Large statues of various materials grow here and it is true that some of them reach as high as 20 meters.
