Twitter Reveals Most Talked About Festivals In 2016

Posted at September 30th, 2016 | by Yash Vikram Singh | in

Circa 2016, social media seems to have everyone by the scruff of their necks and it plays a big part in thinning the herd in the case of music festivals. Festivals like Tomorrowland, Lollapalooza and many others were synonymous on Twitter this summer.

Twitter has put together this data that reveals all as to which festivals were most talked about on Twitter in the summer of 2016.

The most Tweeted about festival of the summer was Glastonbury. Gov Ball’s most Tweeted about artist was Kanye, even though his performance was cancelled due to rain (though that could just as easily have contributed to the amount of tweets).

Martin Garrix was the most Tweeted about artist at Lollapalooza this year. Martin Garrix and Major Lazer closed down day 2 of Lollapalooza. Many of the festivals had smaller artists beat out headliners for the share of Twitter conversation:

  • Outside Lands’ most Tweeted about artist was @halsey, beating out LCD Soundsystem and Radiohead.
  • Bonaroo’s most Tweeted about artist was @ChancetheRapper – Chance was not a scheduled artist at the festival this year, but he did something exciting every single day of Bonnaroo, beating out the headliners for share of Twitter conversation.
