Music Festival Lodging

Lodging is one very important thing for music festivalgoers, although many don’t take it seriously. If the accommodation during your visit to a music festival is alright, then you will not pay much attention to it, but if it’s not good, it can ruin your vacation. That is why we decided to explore which are the best hotels, B&B’s, small luxury hotels, and boutique hotels, near places where some of the world’s best music festivals are held.

Best Lodging Options when Visiting Arise Music Festival

Arise Music Festival is the best music festival in Colorado and one of the top 10 in the USA. Usually, it is held in the beginning of August in Loveland, Colorado, where thousands of people come to enjoy all sorts of music genres, from reggae to country music. In 2016, the Arise Music Festival has some impressive headliners like Jurassic 5 and Ziggy Marley.

Sunrise Ranch Retreat and Conference Center is located in the exact area where the Arise Music Festival is held. This lodging option might be the perfect place for those interested in the New Age as the hotel is operated by the Emissaries Of The Light. Remember, marijuana is legal in Colorado, so if you wish to consume it, this hotel would be an excellent spot for that.

Pitchfork Music Festival

Pitchfork music festival is a music festival held every year in the Union Park in Chicago, IL. Usually, the festival lasts about three days, during which period all sorts of music acts take place. Music genres you can hear at the Pitchfork include everything from hip-hop to trance. In 2016, Pitchfork fest will be held from 15-17 July. Some of the most important headliners are Carly Rae Japsen, Super Furry Animals and Brian Wilson from the Beach Boys.

The closest hotel to the union Park, where the Pitchfork Festival takes place is Crowne Plaza Hotel, Chicago Metro Downtown. This is a luxury hotel, very close to the home arena of the Chicago Bulls basketball team. The metro station is 5 minutes away from the hotel and it takes you directly to the Pitchfork location. The price for a double room during the days of the Pitchfork festival is $430, which seams as a bargain.

Exit Festival Novi Sad, Serbia

This is the most affordable music festival on our list. It costs a shy of $100 and lasts for 5 days. When it comes to drinks and food, Exit beats all of the competition. It is by far the cheapest music festival in Europe for the entertainment it offers. Often voted as the best festival in Europe, Exit started as a sort of protest festival, 16 years ago, when Serbian musicians used their art as a way of fighting the government.

Since, the festival has grown into one of the most important music festivals in the world. Many A-list musicians performed at Exit, including British electro group Prodigy, Wu-Tang, Motorhead, Manu Chao, etc. In the summer 2016, from 7-10 July, Exit will welcome over 200,000 visitors and award them with concerts of Ellie Goulding, Wiz Khalifa, Hurts, Bastille, Nicky Romero, and a few dozen of other artists on a few dozen different stages.

Exit is a unique European music festival, not only because it’s important role in Serbian history, but also for its location. Exit is held at the biggest preserved fortress in Europe, the Petrovaradin Fortress in Novi Sad. There is a possibility of staying on the fortress, in one of the luxurious hotels like the Hotel Fortress Leopold. Another option is staying in a tent in the Exit Village in Novi Sad downtown. However, probably your best choice is renting a room in small boutique hotels or luxury hotels in the center of Novi Sad as they are very affordable. Check out to see it yourself.
