In this divided world, one would rarely find anything that has the power to bring humans together, but music is one of those rarities with this power. With live music shows or festivals, music has never failed to bring people together, and bond, no matter their identity, but just their mutual sensitivity to the sonorous tunes played and performed. Every person prefers certain genres of music, but all in all, it will be an oddity to find a person who does not like music. Here is the list of top 5 music festivals one should experience to feel the power and grandeur of the music, influencing and binding the massive crowds around them and to feel one with the world for once!
