The greatest, the most famous pop-rock European festival! Did I tell you how much I love music? England (and north Europe in general) is the place to be if you want to enjoy the right mix of fun, great music, entertainment and an amazing family time. Glastonbury happens every 2 years (this year from the 26th to the 30th of June) and it’s a super crowded festival, so consider to book in advance. What happens at Glastonbury for children? Kidzfield is the children area of the festival, featuring the top names from the universe of children’s entertainment. This green area offers adventures like climbing walls, jumping on wooden ships and lots of others activities. Plus, music is great!
