Top 10 Most Popular Music Festivals for Jetsetters

June 23, 2017 -

With the official start of summer, music festival season is kicking into full gear around the globe. As the popularity of these music festivals increase exponentially, creators seek to top the previous years’ experience by offering luxury amenities – attracting the mega-rich who are interested in exclusivity.

The significant rise in UHNWIs (ultra high net worth individuals) interest in music festivals has generated an unprecedented demand for private jet travel during these weekends. Victor, the leading global, on-demand price jet charter marketplace, has seen this trend evolve over the past few years and monitored travel behavior in order to prepare for booking requests…

The Victor data below shows jet charter movement as it relates to the most popular music festivals – comparing 2016 and 2017.

Interestingly enough, Victor found that the music festival with the largest increase in booking requests was Burning Man – an apparent contradiction given the festival’s minimalist culture & frugal ethos. However, the festival is more than accommodating of these jet setters, having set up a temporary private jet charter terminal explicitly for the event.

2016 vs 2017 highlight trends:

• Already, planned flights to Burning Man 2017 are 38% up on actual flights to the festival in 2016
• Planned flights to Lollapalooza 2017 are 100% up on flights there in 2016
• Planned flights to Glastonbury 2017 are 50% up on flights there in 2016

Currently three times as many private jet charters planned via Victor to Burning Man than 2017’s next most popular festival (in Victor’s list), EDC.
