The fourth one is Rock am Ring, Germany.



Rock am Ring unlike the other 3, is a rock and metal festival that takes place in Nürburgring racetrack in Nürburg, Germany. A three day event that started off 1985 was planned as a onetime festival, but the success rate it produced was magnanimously high as a result of which the organizers decided to carry it through decades and is still a big hit every year!


Several other music festivals are priced at around 80 pounds such as Sonar in Spain, Sziget Festival in Budapest, and Exit in Siberia.
