As we stated in our annual Holiday Gift Guide, there's no better gift these holidays than a music festival ticket. To help you out, we've listed the 40 festivals on our radar with presales, early bird deals, and holiday specials going on now. Most festivals on this list offer their discounted deals with an element of blind faith attached - you're committing to an event without knowing the lineup. However, a few have already begun announcing artists (Isle of Wight, Rock Werchter, Primavera Sound, Field Day, Bluesfest, Sonar, Levitation, to name a few), so definitely check with the festival site if you're on the fence with your purchase.

Grab them while they're still available at reduced rates and check back often as we'll update this alphabetical list with price changes as they occur. We listed each price in the currency of the festival's host country and indicated which have multiple pass options available with a '+' following the price. 

While we made this list under the pretense of buying a gift for a loved one, there's no shame in snagging a few for yourself as well (we did).
