As the first month of 2018 comes to a close, many of us look to the horizon for the excitement that is yet to come. That’s right, it’s almost time for festival season to come in full force once again. One could say that festival season is never *really* over, since there’s an abundance of events that take place all throughout the year. But the months of November to January are notoriously slower paced than the rest of the year in terms of festivals. Most of us are winding down from the holidays and are now ready to gear up for what’s sure to be the craziest festival season yet. And to help us do that, I’ve compiled a comprehensive list of some of the well known and maybe not-so-well-known festivals happening all around the world this year.
