The top festivals in the world are gauged mostly on the popularity of the festival among other variables. The popularity includes the number of people who have attended the festival and how much awesomeness they experienced.
One of the most unforgettable events in the world is The Full Moon Party. Although this is celebrated a few places in Asia, it is best known as a Thailand tradition that occurs on every full moon. Over fifty thousand people throng on the Thailand island of Kho Pha Ngan to celebrate the full moon on the beach. Revelers at this event partake in the local but lethal alcohol, buckets. Music played here includes the hottest RnB tracks of the day as well as reggae, house, drum and bass and trance tunes. The party lasts all night on the beach. Partiers can get here easily due to the affordable flights to Phuket.
The Song Kran is another festivity that is held in Thailand. The event is held on every April 13th marking a new year for the Thailand citizens.

The Burning Man festival attracts over fifty thousand attendees from all over the world. Tons of men, women and children come to the Black Rock Desert which is located in Nevada, USA, to see the forty foot high structures being set alight (hence its name).

In addition to this, the event encourages any artists to come and showcase their art at the open playa in the event.
Running of the Bulls is another festivity that attracts global attention. The event takes place in Pamplona, Spain, every July.

Another famous festivity from Spain is the La Tomatina. This event is based in a small town known as Bunol located near Valencia, Spain. The streets of the town are filled with thousands of people who pelt crushed tomatoes at each other. The tomatoes are crushed in order to avoid any damage or people getting injured while enjoying the festivity.
