Many music lovers travel to music festivals within their local area. Most do not have the resources to travel the world and enjoy their favourite music in a variety of foreign countries. This is not true for those who perform at music festivals. Musicians are paid for their work and the travel expenses are generally included. This allows single performers and bands an opportunity to travel the world and perform their music in many different countries. It provides a unique experience for a good musician to learn the music of other cultures and countries and experience a variety of interesting venues.
