Asia is a secret playground for musicians. Music festivals are rampant in the summer months, and huge international acts share the stage with obscure but equally good local artists. The best part about music festivals in this part of the world is that they have yet to develop a mainstream following like that of Glastonbury or Coachella, making tickets accessible and affordable. On the artistic side of things, musicians who play at these festivals often drop the superficial act largely due to the absence of the paparazzi and the presence of fans that are truly there for the music, rather than the festival brand. Here are some festivals coming up in the summer that are worth booking your flights for.
