Conde Nast Traveler - Best Festivals Around the World 2017 | Litfest A Food and Drinks Literacy Festival at Ballymaloe
In some ways, the festival is the ultimate holiday. A life-changing experience, crammed into a few days, which transforms you from jaded commuter into free spirit, or opens your mind through art, music, poetry, performance.
Glastonbury may have sold out in seconds flat - but there are enough festivals around the world to keep us happy all year long, from literary highs to euphoric trance. So pack your wings and stilts. Take your clothes off and paint your bum blue, try unidentifiable street food and circus skills, crowd-surf to the front and 
launch yourself into space from a giant catapult. And lose it, just for a few days. You don't even have to get travel insurance. Will this be the year you finally make it to Burning Man and turn into a silver fish?
