Summer Sonic Festival - Osaka, Japan and Tokyo, Japan

This relatively new festival has quickly become one of Japan's greatest musical events. Summer Sonic attracts a mix of local Japanese musicians and international rock stars, all representing diverse genres of music from Deep Purple to Lady Gaga. This two day event, August 13 and 14, is split up between Osaka and Tokyo, two of Japan's liveliest cities, so you'll find endless entertainment even when the music isn't playing. And don't worry about missing out on your favorite shows because all artists play at both venues. (www.summersonic.com)

Festival International de Jazz de Montreal - Montreal, Canada

It's no surprise that Montreal is a favorite city among travelers, but consider going June 25 to July 4 and you'll witness one of the world's largest jazz festivals. Situated in the heart of the city, you can see big names in jazz at a variety of venues from small and ******** clubs, to massive outdoor stages. Much of the downtown area is blocked off from traffic for free and open-air performances, and kids are always welcome. (www.montrealjazzfest.com/default-en.aspx)

Bestival - Isle of Wight, England

Nope, it's not Glastonbury and it's not Reading- it's Bestival. Probably one of the most eclectic festivals out there, Bestival offers an alternative and diverse option to the typical corporate music fest. This kid-friendly, four-day event (September 8 to 11) boasts music from renowned rock artists, as well as quirky tents and competitions. The most popular event is Fancy Dress, where attendees dress up in outlandish costumes. In 2010, 55,000 festival goers participated in Fancy Dress, and ended up breaking a Guinness World Record.

Festival Internacional de Benicassim - Benicassim, Spain

Take the vibrant music and action of a rock performance and put it on the beautiful beaches of Spain, and you've got Benicàssim International Festival. Although Benicàssim is typically known as a rock, electronic and pop event, there are plenty of other things to do and see at the festival, including theater, short films and fashion shows. But if you like to be in bed by nine, this affair might not be for you; performances typically start at 5pm and end at 8am. This year's festival runs from July 14 to 17. (www.fiberfib.com)
