International festivals programme


Music is synonymous of summertime, and summer is just around the corner. Don’t think twice about it, open your diary and get planning. This year, you’ll need to be ready for anything and nothing better than a tour of the season’s most cutting-edge International Festivals to return refreshed in September. Take note and get your backpack ready to enjoy a rhythmic summer.


Sasquatch!, Washington (27-30 May)

Over half the population of North America’s west coast will be here. The Gorge amphitheatre in Quincy, Washington (USA), will play host to artists as hot as A$AP Rocky, Jamie XX and Grimes in May. A date you cannot miss out on if you want to kick-start the season in style.

Sonar 2016, Barcelona (16-18 June)

This year, Barcelona is taking a risk and adding the experimental flamenco of Nicho de Elche & Los Voluble to its line-up. The new band Underground Resistante, Timeline and the return of El Guincho complete its constantly mould-breaking agenda.

Bonnaroo, Tennessee (9-12 June)

Four days on a farm in Manchester, in the state of Tennessee (USA), never has such a rural plan sounded like so much fun. Every musical genre you can imagine, with J. Cole and Tyler heading up the list, will converge at a festival that last year had artists as famous as Stevie Wonder or Kanye West.

Found Festival, London (11 June)

A day split into six scenarios in south London, non-stop house and techno, and artists such as Derrick May, Kerri Chandler, Midland or Leon Vynehall are what the British capital is set to offer to herald the start of this summer.

Meadows in the Mountains, Bulgaria (10-13 June)

As its name implies, there’s no better way than getting lost in the Bulgarian mountains of Rhodope (close to the Greek border) to enjoy three days of live house and techno.

Wilderness, Oxfordshire (4-7 August)

Music is not all that some festivals offer. With a reputation for being posh, Wilderness includes some of the best international chefs. For those wishing to enjoy a concert with a good glass of wine in their hand.

Outside Lands, California (5-7 August)

The best of music, art and gastronomy join forces in California to usher in the month of August. The festival was designed with a strong eco-friendly philosophy to make the world aware that ecology is not just a passing fad. Its stages, for instance, work on solar power. For the moment the line-up has yet to be confirmed.

Outlook, Croatia (2-6 September)

The city of Pula in Croatia opens up its legendary Roman military installation and recycles it for this festival in which some of the stages are hidden among its multiple tunnels. And if you have any energy left over, there’s no better way than to complete it with a boat trip on the Adriatic sea.

Salt, Noruega (Septiembre (To be confirmed))

Para cerrar tu agenda festivalera, anota este festival organizado en pleno Círculo Ártico, en la ciudad nórdica de Sandhornøy. Entre concierto y concierto, no te pierdas sus performances, sus piscinas a 11ºC o sus saunas gigantes.
