So as many of you know I’ve attended the Burning Man festival five times, it’s amazing and there is a whole section of posts from this blog a few of them are linked below and should give you a flavor of the event:
However recently I’ve been looking for what’s next what festival should I try that might give me some of the same amazing experiences I’ve shared on the Playa? Well here are some contenders or at least really fascinating festivals.
Europe’s largest fire festival: Up Helly Aa – Vikings, Burning Ships, bring your own bottle all-night party, hmmmm
Dia de los Muertos, the Day of the Dead in Oaxaca, a classic but a must see
Holi: The Festival of Colors (India), fabulous spring festival in India
Diwali in Amritsar, The festival of light (India), sparkling light festival in India
Festival of Fallas, Valencia, Spain, reminiscent of Burning Man, amazing art and fire
And some other interesting festivals I bumped into during my research
La Tomatina (Spain), worlds biggest tomato fight
The festival of San Fermin (The running of the bulls, Spain)
Lebowskifest, the dude, nuff said.
Mystery Weekend in Langley, WA – city sized murder mystery
Thaipusam India, interesting festival culminating with impalements
El Colacho: the baby-jumpiing festival, yeah that’s what I said
Hokitika Wildfoods festival in New Zealand for the gastronomically bold
What suggestions do you have?
