It’s that time of year again, when bands swap sticky dive-bar floors for well-tramped grass and enormous open-air stages. This year’s festival season is finally upon us, and to get in the mood, here are nine of the world’s best. From America to Australia, from Europe to Japan, just about every artist you can think of is bringing music to the great outdoors this summer. The only question is: Which festival do you attend first?
