One of the best things about Summer is music festivals. Music festivals combine a collection of some of the best music acts across the world, thousands of people together enjoying themselves and hopefully, fingers crossed, some glorious weather. Here at travel2ireland, we decided to start the party by getting everyone excited about some of the best music festivals coming up.
