Amazing music festivals may be most common in the summer however, winter music festivals are a growing trend even in the snowiest destinations. You might not be able to wear your favorite sandals, but a few warm layers should keep you warm and with the great tunes to keep you dancing, you will likely not even notice.

With a name like Eurosonic Noordeslag, there’s only one place this festival could take place, and that is the Netherlands, Groningen to be exact.

The bill runs the gamut from indie to surf rock, and is sure to inspire you to download some new favorites after you get home.
