Music is an art form that is enjoyed by people all over the world. Each culture has its own preferences, performers and composers. Fortunately, music is a very universal form of entertainment. Music festivals are one way to share music from many different cultures. They allow artists from different backgrounds and countries to perform for new audiences. Many festivals, especially in the world of music, become annual events. While a few are general music festivals, many specialize in only one or two genres of music. This allows people who prefer certain genres of music to gather with those of like mind and enjoy their favorite music and performers together.
