5 European Festivals

If you’re looking for a way to fill your summer calendar with non-stop fun and festivities, look no further! We have all your festival needs covered below:

Snowbombing: April

If you’re not quite ready to switch into summer mode just yet, hop on a plane to the snowy mountain tops of Mayrhofen this April and indulge in a little snow fun before the sunny months hit.
Returning this year for its fifteenth instalment to date, Austria’s best kept secret will continue to prove to its guests just why it’s the best at what it does. Known as ‘the greatest show on snow’, Snowbombing treats guests to live music from world-class DJs and artists in some of the most unique and picturesque venues you can imagine; from mountain-top igloos to secluded forest stages. With skiing and snowboarding on the agenda too, it’s good to know that you’re spoilt for choice when it comes to picking a nearby luxury spa hotel – need we say more?!

Emerging Ibiza: May
As summer starts to creep in, blow the dust from your sunglasses and wave farewell to the gloomy winter months by kickstarting your summer festivities with a jaunt to the Emerging Ibiza festival!
With the White Isle no stranger to hosting the biggest and baddest parties around, Emerging Ibiza will be taking the last weekend in May hostage and introducing both island residents and visitors to the best upcoming and undiscovered Dance and Electronic music on the airwaves right now.
In its first year in 2014, tickets are a steal at only £149 – definitely one to put on the top of your list this year!

Secret Solstice – Midnight Sun Festival: June
If you’re looking for a way to really get into the summer spirit, how about a festival where the sun doesn’t set for the entirety of the weekend?!
The Midnight Sun festival is new for 2014 and brings with it an experience of a lifetime that certainly needs to be seen to be believed! Strategically taking place over the penultimate weekend in June, guests will be able to witness the changing of the seasons first hand in Iceland’s Hot Spring Valley, with the sun staying high in the sky for a whole 72 hours!
Indulging guests with an array of musical genres, the festival is fronted by the huge Massive Attack this summer – not bad for a festival in its first year eh?

KaZantip Republic: July/August
Before you jump to conclusions, let’s get one thing straight: this isn’t a music ‘festival’, this is a republic!
Priding itself of differing from your everyday festival, the people of Kazantip – who reside in the ‘community’ for the whole two weeks of the event – provide all those who grace the Crimean peninsula between the 31st July and the 14th August with an unforgettable and unbeatable experience.
Entry requires a ‘ViZa’, the dress code demands orange and the people live how they want, making their own rules as they go along and partying as hard – or taking it as easy – as they want!
With an impressive line-up fronting some of the hottest talent in Electronic music combined with a chockablock programme brimming with top-class entertainment, the KaZantip Republic should be high on your list of priorities to visit this summer!


Amsterdam Dance Event: October
Summer may officially be over but that doesn’t mean the party has to end there too! Finish your summer on the biggest high of all time and head to Amsterdam’s Dance Event, where the music doesn’t stop until your feet do.
Invading Amsterdam’s city centre for five days of Techno fun, ADE is renowned for being the biggest clubbing event in the world, cementing itself as the pioneer Electronic music platform with an army of over 2,000 DJs playing across the crème de la crème of Amsterdam’s finest clubs. Guests will also be able to experience the Playground; ADE’s dance-themed lifestyle programme that will ensure there’s always something exciting going on for festival-goers to explore!
