It seems the entertainment industry is taking over the world. The music industry is especially electric and rolling in a lot of money from all corners of the world. You will be shocked at the money that the music industry can make in a single day. That being said, here are some of the top five most unique music concert venues in the world.
1. Dalhalla, Rattvik, Sweden
Aside from this music concert venue being surrounded by forests, it is also set in a former quarry of limestone. It is the perfect place to go to and listen to music during the Swedish summer seasons. It has high, nearly vertical rock walls, which also provide great acoustics. Between 20 to 30 events can be held in this venue each year, which can attract more than 100,000 music fans and lovers all over the world.
It was named in honor of Valhalla, a hall in Viking mythology where it was believed that the heroes who were killed in battle would feast with the god, Odin, for all eternity. There is a moat which separates the audience from the stage, which takes care of the whole stage diving menace.
2. Slane Castle, Meath, Ireland
This music concert venue is located only forty miles north of Dublin and overlooks River Boyne. It is simply one of the most stunning music venues and has also played host to some big names in the music industry as well. The U2 crew even opted to stay in the castle when they were recording their album “Unforgettable Fire.”
All concerts are held in an amphitheater below the castle. It is instructive that no artist, no matter how big, from the Rolling Stones to Madonna, and even U2, no one has yet been able to overshadow the castle.
3. Red Rocks Amphitheatre, Colorado, USA
This music concert venue is one of a kind. Craved into the sandstone foothills of the Colorado Rocky Mountains. It is also surrounded by famous monolithic formations.

The stage itself is in between 2 300-foot sandstone rocks. This venue has also played host to some big names like Jimi Hendrix, and Dave Mathews.
4. Sultan’s Pool, Jerusalem, Israel
