Hi guys just wanting an idea of festivals that are a must see, want to do a RTW based on a festival circuit, mainly in The Americas/Canada and Europe since I start in NZ and I won't really be completing the RTW, will just stop and work in Europe for a while. so any ideas would be great.
at the moment i have:
Rio Carnival (February),
New Orleans Mardi Gras (same time unfortunately),
New Orleans Jazz Fest (April/May),
Burning Man (September),
Oktoberfest (October?)

Be aware that Burning Man requires quite a bit of preparation and supplies, and it can get quite expensive. That said, it will probably be one of the best weeks of your life if you go.
