As the temperature drops further into Fall, so do the number of North American music festivals. Yet as our season dwindles down, Australia's heats up. Scroll down for the festivals on our radar this November, plus the guides you can expect on Cultivora.


On the first day of November, Pitchfork Paris will be in its second day and Voodoo Experience will let festivalgoers get more use out of their Halloween costumes. The following weekend, November 8-10, Brooklyn Electronic Music Festival (BEMF) will takeover Williamsburg with electronic acts both locally and internationally-renowned. In a warmer climate, Fun Fun Fun Fest will round out Austin's festival scene for the year.

That same weekend, Florida ups its festival game with four festivals taking place across the state. The Electric Daisy Carnival series lands in Orlando while Miami hosts Friends of Nature Music Festival and the inaugural Coastline Festival simultaneously occurs in Tampa and West Palm Beach.

Florida's stint continues into November 14-17 with Bear Creek Music Festival taking over Live Oak.

November 22-24, we look to Camber Sands in the UK for the first installment of ATP's UK Holiday Camps's last hurrah. The End of An Era Part 1, curated by ATP and Primavera Sound, will begin the closing celebration back where ATP began in 2001. Also taking place that weekend, Sydney's Harbourlife will celebrate its 10th anniversary.

During the closing weekend of the month, November 29-December 1, End of An Era Part 2 will officially bring the UK Holiday Camps to an end, Australia's touring festival, Stereosonic will take place in Sydney and Perth, and Warped Tour's first venture into Australia will begin.


We recently posted updated festival guides to Ultra, WMC, and Snowbombing. In November, we'll continue to polish these guides with updated recommendations. We'll also be revamping our 2013 editions of Bluesfest and Jazz Fest.
