No.1 Currency ranked the world’s most popular summer festivals based on the cost of tickets, food and drinks (not including travel to and from the location). Coachella was found to be the most expensive of all the festivals, with Tomorrowland in Belgium following close behind, costing £186 per day.
Glastonbury, the UK’s most famous music event came in third place, costing £113 per day. (Calculated from a five day ticket and camping pass costing £565 + £68 per day for food and drink.)
