About Us

The team of Festival Snobs are a group of friends who met because they ran in the same event circles and often saw each other attending the same events. After the infamous Fyre Festival put a spotlight on the festival and event planning industries, the three decided to start a website for both festival attendees and festival planners.

Apart from reviews on festivals around the world, we take it one step further and talk about festivals in unconventional ways. If you love attending festivals but want to learn more about what happens behind the scenes, Festival Snob has entertaining articles that will change the way you see your favorite events.

Julia works as a senior editor for a travel magazine. While she loves attending festivals, she doesn’t get a lot of articles about them, so she’s made her own website dedicated to festivals and serves as the editor-in-chief.

As an expert in traveling, Julia detests traveling like a tourists and committing faux passes with other cultures. Some festivals are more than just one or two Instagram-worthy photos. If you’re going to attend a festival in any country, you have to know the culture and the meaning behind it.
