Let’s be honest. Teaching English as a Foreign Language is all about the travelling. Weekends, national holidays, school holidays – this is what we are all secretly dreaming of when we are lesson planning or marking homework. If you’re a bit tired of the usual tourist trips and would like to go somewhere you can party like a local, then have a look at some of our favourite festivals you can still catch in the second half of 2019.

Glastonbury
The world’s biggest festival takes place from 26 to 30 June in Somerset in the UK. There’s always a wild hype about it, it’s always chaotically crowded and it’s sometimes very, very muddy. This year you can expect The Killers, The Cure, Kylie, Janet Jackson, Miley Cyrus, Bastille, Sheryl Crow and so many more.

Love International
Festival or holiday? Who knows? What we do is there are open-air clubs, boat parties, beach parties, stages and secret island parties, all overlooking the Dalmation Coast in Croatia. 3 to 10 July.

Lollapalooza
If you’re in the States from 1 to 4 August, head on over to Chicago for Lollapalooza. With a lineup that includes Ariana Grande, The Chainsmokers, Lil Wayne and Hozier, this four-day festival is sure to be amazing.

Edinburgh Fringe Festival
The world’s largest arts festival takes place in Scotland for the month of August. From comedy shows to plays to music to poetry to art exhibitions to acrobatic displays, the Fringe Festival has something for everyone.

Burning Man
The original Burning Man festival can be found in the middle of the Nevada desert between 25 August and 2 September. A community of 50 000 oddly-dressed people come together and barter for survival in one of the most cultish festivals of the year.

Oktoberfest
For all the beerlovers, Oktoberfest takes place in Munich, Germany from 21 September to 6 October. Expect beer, sauerkraut, weisswurst, and more beer.

The Hermanus Whale Festival
If being in nature is more of your thing, be sure to be in the little coastal town of Hermanus in South Africa from 27 to 29 September. Take a walk through the town and watch migrating Southern Right Whales in the sea while you enjoy your lunch.

Wonderfruit
This four-day eco-friendly festival takes place in Pattaya, Thailand from 12 to 16 December. There is music, performances and even kid-friendly activities, but it is completely sustainable with a zero-plastic policy.
