In recent years people have become much more likely to visit a concert festival as well as single concerts. Festivals, once again, can cover all music genres and can appeal to all ages from children to adults. Many music festivals will be set up to run over a period of a few days rather than just one night and will have a variety of bands and musicians playing. The bigger music festivals (such as Glastonbury) will have a variety of bands and/or musicians playing at the same time and visitors to the festival can choose which shows to see as they please.
