A round-up of music festivals in Europe that still have tickets available this summer.
With the last two years of COVID-19 ruining our travel plans, you might have (understandably) felt like it'd be tempting fate to book a festival for the summer.
As Glastonbury in the UK just showed, the summer season for festivals is already in full swing. If you didn't make it, you may have been listening on in envy as everyone from your friends to your grandma chats about their upcoming events.
Not to worry - we’ve rounded up a list of European music festivals that still have tickets available for the summer. Get in quick though, some are only a few weeks away...

Where: Gdynia, Poland
One of the largest music festivals in Poland, Open'er Festival will this year feature artists including Dua Lipa, Imagine Dragons, The Killers and many more. Tickets are still available via the festival's website, including multi-day tickets and ticket-and-camping combos.
When: 1-3 July
Where: Portimão, Portugal
Billed as the world's biggest Afrobeats festival, Afro Nation is held every summer on Praia da Rocha beach, just south of Portimão in Portugal.

You might want to hurry a bit on this one, as tickets for some days of the festival are already sold out. There are still some day tickets and VIP tickets left for the last few days of the festival though, so get in quick if you want to see the likes of Arlo Parks and Aleesha.
Bilbao BBK Live
When: 7-9 July
Where: Bilbao, Spain
There are still around 2,000 tickets going for one of Spain's most exciting music festivals. With a great line-up including massive stars like LCD Soundsystem, Stromae, and the Pet Shop Boys, it's a camping event not to be missed in the Spanish sun.
When: 15-17 July, 22-24 July, 29-31 July

One of the world's biggest EDM festivals is now just around the corner. It's officially sold out after an additional ticket sale of returns at the beginning of June.

You can also get various accommodation and travel packages via the Tomorrowland website.
