  • Europe’s Top Music Festivals: Tomorrowland, Mad Cool, Primavera Sound, Way Out West, Sziget, Nos Alive, Rock in Rio

    Top 5 Festivals in Europe 2024

    Music lovers have endless European festivals to choose from next year. Let’s explore some of the most popular.

    Tomorrowland is an outer-world festival experience for electronic music fans, whose line-ups read like a who’s who of EDM artists. Then there’s Mad Cool, Madrid’s tribute to global dance music.

    Primavera Sound

    Since its inception in 2001, Primavera has become one of Europe’s most famous music festivals. Its characteristics are its eclectic lineup and vibrant atmosphere. It embraces rock, pop, indie and electronic music.

    In the same way, it seeks to broaden minds and break down boundaries between genres. For example, black metal band Mayhem plays a ripping affair that brews up a mosh pit. Clearly, it’s out of character for this festival, but it fits perfectly with its unconventionalities.

    The organisers of the event also strive for an environmentally friendly approach. For example, they encourage punters to reuse their pint glasses (EUR1 discount). They also ask them not to talk during sets and to “dance hard and sing loud”. This helps create a wildly mixed crowd that includes indie-kids, toddlers with ear-protecting headphones and Latinx Gen Z.

    Way Out West

    Like most modern musical festivals, Way Out West caters to a broad range of musical tastes. The festival’s curation process is based on a diverse array of musical genres and most attendees seem to find the acts that appeal to them.

    Rap and hip hop fans were well served with Spotify’s 100 Live programme at the new Hojden stage, while rock lovers found a rich mix of boundary-defying artists such as Danish punk band Iceage and the hard-rocking Thastrom. Swedish singer-songwriter Beabadoobee and Nilufer Yanya also enthralled the crowd with their playful and dynamic songs.

    When the last note is played at Slottsskogen, the party continues at venues throughout central Gothenburg. This keeps the audience in a state of constant motion, which in turn helps keep revenue up for the event.

    Sziget

    Often referred to as Europe’s Glastonbury, Budapest’s Sziget is an utter joy. The festival, founded in 1993, has become a site for liberation and unity (the campsite asks campers to donate their tents when they leave) and boasts an incredible line-up of headliners that has included the likes of David Bowie and Radiohead.

    The event itself is actually many festivals in one – the programme includes pop, rock, world and metal music but there’s also plenty of other genres to enjoy. As well as an impressive array of ancillary events like a drag brunch in the Magic Mirror tent, Sziget has an obvious commitment to social and environmental sustainability.

    The festival’s ethos is evident in everything from the blaring noise to the absurd extras. It’s a great place to see how the future of music festivals will evolve.

    Nos Alive

    According to a recent study by brand consultancy onStrategy, NOS Alive is one of the top festivals in the world when it comes to global reputation. The Portuguese festival, also known as Optimus Alive, was launched in 2007 and is famous for its varied line-ups that give equal weight to stadium filling international headliners and alternative independent acts.

    This year’s edition was arguably more dominated by rock than previous instalments, with a number of bands bringing their own riff-heavy interpretations to the stage. For example, Throes + the Shine’s ebullient post-punk grooves on the NOS Clubbing stage brought in the crowds. It was a little like the festival’s own little surprise act, a crevice of unexpected delight that was well worth checking out.

    Rock in Rio

    Rock in Rio is a festival of massive scale, and with that comes enormous ambition. The ethos hasn’t changed since its first edition back in 1985, which saw the likes of Queen and Metallica headline, but now it also hosts three tents dedicated to music from across the globe as well as lectures and exhibitions at the Better World arena.

    The last edition – which took over the Cidade do Rock at the Parque Olimpico, turning it into an entertainment city for two weekends – was full of circus of the Cirque du Soleil variety, with people flying on highwires and DJs attacking the audience with wind machines. The next one is slated for 2-9 September, with Drake, Foo Fighters and Bon Jovi already announced as headliners.

  • Festivals in the Philippines: A Celebration of Culture and Unity

    December 16, 2023

    Region 9 Festivals in the Philippines

    Aside from the fact that it’s a thanksgiving for bountiful harvest, it also serves as an act of healing and revival. It is an expression of people’s deep connection with the sea.

    Local exhibitors were most interested in the impact of the festival and perceived it positively (H1). They assessed the improvement of the brand of the place and influx of tourists as positive effects.

    Hudyaka ZaNorte

    DIPOLOG CITY – Vice President Sara Duterte praised Hudyaka ZaNorte during her visit to the province this week. She said the holding of the event is a clear manifestation of its unceasing development. “Its success is a testament to your locals’ hard work and determination to advance, especially in this time of globalization,” she said. She also lauded the festival’s focus on the history and culture of the province.

    Hudyaka ZaNorte is a month-long celebration of the province’s 159th founding anniversary. Its core events include the Kinabayo Festival, which features a reenactment of the Battle of Covadonga. The festival also honors St. James the Greater, the province’s patron saint.

    The festival also showcases the province’s rich agricultural produce and tourism potential. It includes a night party and competitions, as well as garden shows and cultural presentations. A highlight of the festival is a sports complex in which participants compete in volleyball and table tennis tournaments. In addition, there is a special area where booths represent each municipality’s local products. Pinan’s booth, for example, exhibited five-kilo Hawaiian pineapples, which the townfolk claim are their biggest harvest.

    Sibug-Sibug

    The Sibug-Sibug festival is the province’s annual celebration of its founding day on February 26th. This two-week merriment features beautiful Ethnic Street hitting the dance floor with customs that depict good harvest, wedding, and healing. The festival also highlights the province’s number one product – shellfish or talaba in Tagalog.

    The festival aims to preserve the Subanen culture of Diplahan, as well as its history and traditions. It also aims to boost tourism by highlighting its heritage and natural resources, such as the pristine beaches of Zamboanga Peninsula.

    The festival was first launched in 2013 as a means to showcase the cultural identity of the municipality and its residents. Since then, it has grown to include a variety of activities such as the agri-tourism exposition, a trade fair and the prestigious Binibining Sibugay beauty pageant. Its renowned local products have also gained global recognition as evidenced by their inclusion in various international trade fairs.

    Sakayan

    Sakayan Festival is a celebration of the city’s people whose livelihood depends on fishing. It also honors the city’s founding anniversary. The festival’s activities include a cityhood address, agro-industrial trade fair and exhibits, food and cooking fest, sports, talent contest (singing, dance, essay writing), and other public services.

    Dora Sakayan was born in Salonica, Greece to Armenian parents who escaped the genocide. She studied Germanic linguistics and language pedagogy at the Lomonosov Moscow State University and later taught German at Yerevan State University. She was a specialist in the field of foreign language acquisition.

    Her archival research led her to discover the story of Clara Hilty, Fritz Sigrist-Hilty, and Haig Aramian. Through an organic interplay of primary and secondary texts, her book relates to the reader a coherent real-life story of endless human suffering but also of Christian compassion and selflessness. It is the most complete archival documentation of the event that spanned across three decades.

    Megayon

    Almost every province in the Philippines has its own festival. These celebrations are filled with unbridled merriment and deep cultural significance. They can be dedicated to a town’s patron saint, its founding, or even seasonal changes.

    The yearly Pasalamat Festival in Dapitan is held on the third Sunday of the first month and is a tribute to the city’s patron saint, Santo Nino. It is a festival that is also focused on the preservation of traditional arts and culture in the city.

    The Megayon Festival in Zamboanga del Sur is a week-long celebration that takes place from the 11th until the 17th of September. It celebrates the unity between the Subanons, Bangsamoro Muslims, and Christians who live in the province. The word “Megayon” comes from the Subanen dialect and means “unity and solidarity”. In addition to cultural songs and dances, it also features indigenous sports competitions, peace forums, and environmental activities.
