This week we’ve been getting excited about the first Glasto ticket sale for next year’s festival and it got us thinking about festivals across Europe as well as at home, so we thought we’d do a bit of research just in case any of you fancy a different festival experience next year.
There are many weird and wonderful festivals out there. The oddest (and one of the most fun looking) is La Tomatina in Bunol in Spain. The point of the festival? Get covered in as many tomatoes as possible! In just one hour, a massive 40 tonnes of tomatoes are squashed and 150,000 tomatoes are thrown – the equivalent of the weight of 40 bulls! If this is your thing, Bunol is 30 mins drive from Valencia and the festival takes place on the last Wednesday in August each year. So that means you can start looking on latedeals.co.uk for discounts to Spain from the end of June.
If you like beer, Oktoberfest in Munich is the only festival for you. In 2013, this takes place from 21st Sept-3rdOctober so plenty of time to bag a bargain on flights and accommodation. Anastonishing 1.5 million gallons over beer are consumed during the festival, and in terms of snacks, 523 chickens are eaten, as are 15 oxen!
And for something completely different, there’s always – wait for it – the one day Summer Redneck Games in Georgia, USA! Activities include Mud Pit Belly Flopping and Toilet Seat Throwing…Next year’s activities take place on May 26th.
