UK Festivals: More than just the music

•••
The iconic Glastonbury festival kicked off on the weekend and all who couldn’t (or forgot!) to get a ticket wept in their bed and cursed all the happy festival-goers. I for one gave the finger to all the happy instagram shots and tweets about the festivities... #IdontCareButAmLying... But don’t despair as Glastonbury is merely kicking off the UK’s awesome fe[...]

12 things you must do before summer's over

•••
With autumn looming in the distance and limited time left of the summer’s sun, the great outdoors needs to be fully seized and enjoyed before it is too late! Road trips, camping trips, hikes, bike rides; all these things must be done before the miserable winter sets in and you regret your missed sunny opportunities. Don’t let that happen and don’t resign you[...]

36 hours in Podgorica

•••
To attend a concert of our favorite artist or band, most of us have either travelled to another city, another state or maybe a neighboring country. Last week I found myself taking things even further and leaving the central European continent to attend a festival in a country I had only very vague ideas about: Montenegro. Following an invitation to join the [...]

8 reasons to keep going back to Burning Man

•••
Burning Man Festival? We have already published a post about the reasons why every Travelette should attend this absurd event, held annually in the Black Rock Desert (Nevada), at least once in her life. Once did not cut it for me though, and after completing my third burn (which still makes me a baby Burner, as many people have been coming for fifteen years [...]

Travelettes at North Sea Jazz Festival

•••
I love the Netherlands. I love jazz music. And I love festivals, though preferably the mud-free kind. I did something about all of the above by attending the North Sea Jazz Festival in Rotterdam last month. With the likes of Sting, Bobby Womack, The Roots and Dionne Warwick topping the bill, I had high expectations from the three day festival that takes p[...]

The Travelettes guide to packing for festivals

•••
Oh Glastonbury. The iconic English music festival. The place to be in June where you can frolic in fields, listen to great music, see great fashion, party with friends (and strangers) and just generally have a fantastic knees-up in the old British countryside. You've probably been inundated with festival highlights and updates over the media waves as it is t[...]

The HUSH Project: Travelling the World in the Name of Love

•••
Let me tell you about a guy from New York City. He is a singer/songwriter and self-proclaimed hopeless romantic – a species of which there are quite few among the city's 8 million souls. Like most people, this guy once went through a crazy love story which would drastically change his life. And, like some other inspired artists, this guy used music as an out[...]

Marfa – Discovering Modern Art in the Texas Desert

•••
Imagine a tiny town in the high desert of far West Texas. A place that was once established as a water stop, named after a character from a novel, and that is now famous for art installations and mysterious ghost lights. Sounds intriguing? Welcome to the City of Marfa. I first heard about this far away place when reading an article about the Prada[...]

Dance with somebody: Roskilde Festival in Denmark

•••
There is one crucial question which every girl has to answer at one point or another: could you do without the daily look in the mirror, a hot shower and a powered hair dryer? Respectively, would you like to go to a week-long music festival? If said music festival proves to take place in Roskilde, Denmark, your answer should most definitely be YES! The Rosk[...]

Flanders is a Festival

•••
Summer isn't really summer without a decent festival and as festival season is now in full swing I thought it was about time I joined in to lap up the music, sunshine, atmosphere and general all round fun. With more than 280 festivals, 16,500km² of festival ground, the biggest bands, the most original sceneries and some of the world’s best festivals, Flan[...]
