Coachella: The Most Popular Music Festival with a Ferris Wheel

Electronic music festivals are known for their spectacular shows, and the ferris wheel is one of the most iconic attractions. As Europe's largest electronic music festival, Coachella is no exception. Every year, the festival draws in hundreds of thousands of people to marvel at the dazzling lights and art installations, as well as to enjoy the wide range of popular and established musical acts, emerging and reunified acts. Founded in 1999, Coachella has become a bucket list festival for any music enthusiast.

Last year's event was attended by more than 400,000 people, and featured some of the best DJs and music producers in the world. The festival's origins can be traced back to a 1993 concert that Pearl Jam presented at the Empire Polo Club while boycotting Ticketmaster-controlled venues. In 2019, Beyoncé became the first African-American woman to headline the festival. Glastonbury is another one of the most famous and popular music festivals in the world.

Held every spring from April to May, Glastonbury features multiple stages where attendees can enjoy contemporary jazz, Afrocentric and world music, blues, gospel and even live cooking demonstrations. Last summer's festival was attended by more than 500,000 people, with performances from Ed Sheeran, Foo Fighters, Martin Garrix, The 1975, Years & Years and Catfish and the Bottlemen. The Electric Daisy Carnival (EDC) is North America's largest electronic music festival. Founded by Paul Tollett and Rick Van Santen of Goldenvoice in 1997, EDC has become one of the most popular music festivals in the world.

Held for four days in Grant Park, Chicago during the summer months, EDC features a brilliant lineup of more than 150 musicians and other emerging artists. Bonnaroo is another vibrant four-day annual music festival held at Bonnaroo Farm in Manchester, Tennessee. While Bonnaroo focuses on rock music, it encompasses a number of musical styles including blues, R&B, gospel, Cajun, folk, Latin, rock, rap, country, bluegrass and more. The Coachella Valley Music Festival is one of the biggest and most profitable music festivals in the world.

Held in California every year since 1991 as a farewell tour for Perry Farrell of Jane's Addiction fame, Coachella features artists from various genres over four days in April or May.
