Gear Up for MTV's Festival Season (At Home)

We've all experienced the struggle. There has been a ballooning number of music festivals happening around the world with far-out lineups, but many a time we end up having to skip it. Unfortunate timing, high prices — whatever the reason we muster, it's always a heartache to give up that chance.



Even for local festivals, sometimes it's the unwillingness to jostle with mad crowds, the laziness to drag yourself to the festival grounds and much less dance/mosh around, or the problem of finding a companion to go with. Many give festivals a miss because the handful of bands they like in the lineup doesn't quite justify the trip or ticket prices. 

Coachella's already offered us the chance to watch all the festivities in the comfort of our bed. MTV now one-ups with a series of festivals to witness all at home.




Starting Sunday 26 July, MTV'll be airing their MTV Festival Season lineup, bringing compiled picks of significant music festivals around the world to the comfort of our homes. The chosen lineup covers an array of genres, featuring shows like Tomorrowland Belgium, MTV Indie Laneway 2015 Special, MTV Club: ZoukOut 2014 and MTV World Stage V Festival Best Bits 2014. We were there at Laneway and MTV Music Evolution so we're especially excited to relieve those days!

So whatever festivals you're bummed that you missed, now you can console yourself with enjoying some sick first row access to them all while chilling on your sofas!



Check out what's going down when in the schedule below, and plan your popcorn TV time (or your dance in front of TV time) with your favourite fests.
