3 Summer Festivals for the Music Lovers
What’s better for someone with a music interest than seeing a bunch of your favourite bands and artist, while also spending time with your friends, eating good food and meeting new people? Not many things in my opinion. Therefore I’ve collected some of the coolest festivals you could attend to help you make this summer a little bit extra special.
Gothenburg, June 1-2
Stockholm, June 9-10
Is your favourite genre of music house? Do you dream to become a DJ? Or do you simply just really like Martin Garrix? If yes is your answer to any of these questions then you should definitely consider going to this electronic music festival.
Some of the main acts for Summerburst this year are; Alan Walker, Axwell /\ Ingrosso, Cheat Codes, Martin Garrix and Vigiland. Previous years have featured a few of the biggest names in the house scene, like David Guetta, Avicii and Calvin Harris.
Way Out West
Gothenburg, August 9-11
This broad music festival involves many different genres such as pop, hip-hop, soul, jazz, rock etc. One thing that makes the festival unique is that only vegetarian food is served. This is to contribute to a better environment and the festival has decreased their impact on the environment by 20% because of this.
This year, the lineup consists of the British rapper J Hus, the Swedish singer Lykke Li, American rapper Noname, Texan boy band (hip-hop collective) Brockhampton and the singer of one of Drake’s favourite songs Jorja Smith. More is yet to be announced.
Queens of Pop
Helsingborg, July 27
Uppsala, August 3
The name of the festival just sums it all up perfectly. This is a brand new festival in which the biggest Swedish female pop singers right now will be performing. That obviously includes Zara Larsson, Icona Pop and Molly Sanden. The rest of the lineup has not been announced yet but will be soon.
