India has always been a country of music lovers. Like every state here has its own culture, the taste and practice of music also varies from state to state. The music festivals in India are a great way to experience live music, and of course India has something for everyone, from classic music lovers to those who love electric music. Here are 5 best music festivals in India which are completely worth travelling for:

#2 Madras Music Season
One of the best platforms to showcase one’s skills of Carnatic Music, Madras Music Season was started in 1927. This festival organized in Chennai stretches a month long, from December to January.
#3 Ziro Festival
Now moving on to the other genres of music- Ziro Festival of Music, held in Ziro, Arunachal Pradesh is perfect for the jazz and rock lovers. Ziro Festival of Music mostly provides a platform to the independent bands in India. But the best thing about this festival has to be its location. Imagine yourself sitting on the green pasture of a quaint hill listening to your favourite music!
Sunburn Festival held in Vagator Beach, Goa is Asia’s #1 music festival in terms of footfall. Goa remains badly crowded during this one week of the year, but then, this crowd and this ambience is worth experiencing once at least!
