NICE JAZZ FESTIVAL
If being together with thousands of people and sleeping in a tent, doesn’t sound tempting, then think about listening to jazz in the French Riviera! This great jazz festival is organized since 1948 and it’s probably the oldest in Europe. This year the date is set in July.
This is the perfect festival for fans of electronic dance music. It will take place in Cheshire, northwest England in August and will host important names in this music style like Tiesto and Chemical Brothers.
This is a festival you definitely shouldn’t miss this year. It takes place in Budapest in August and will host some of the most popular musicians. Ed Shereen and Fo Fighters are only some of them. There will be concerts, theatre and contemporary circus performances taking place on the beautiful island of Buda on the Danube river.
