TABLE: Europe's summer festivals by the numbers

June 9 - Here is a breakdown of summer festivals around

Europe, listing visitor numbers or where not available, festival

venue capacity according to Yourope festival association.

are calculated by the average number of visitors per day,

multiplied by the number of days (one person who stays for two

days counts as two visitors).

the least possible amount of extras, where available.
