The music festival season is now in full swing!
Do you like classical music? Or do you prefer jazz, pop, rock, blues, hip-hop, electro, techno, reggae or rap? Maybe a mix of different music styles is an absolute must for you? If this year’s summer sticks to the rules (weather-wise), then let’s go! The Music Festival season is now upon us.
Open air music festivals and parties everywhere await a devoted and enthusiastic audience. Those who love to spend the summer in Italy, Spain, France and Switzerland just have to decide where they want to go on holiday to experience live acts and phenomenal events with international stars.
Ticket sales have been in place for some time and town squares, beaches, lakes, palace gardens and parks will soon be temporarily transformed into stages for performances by world-renowned artists and bands, newcomers or locals.
VIP alert and inside information!
Whilst Chick Corea is celebrating his 75th birthday at the Umbria Jazz Festival in Perugia, Italy, the songwriter and schmooze singer Bastian Baker will be appearing onstage at the prestigious Montreux Jazz Festival in Western Switzerland.
Carlos Santana is expected to deliver some very special moments at the Starlite Festival in Marbella, Spain. The baroque quartet Red Priest will be offering a treat for our ears during the summer music concerts in East Frisia/Germany.
In France, from Chamonix to Biarritz, from Paris to Cannes, tons of concerts, both innovative and sophisticated, are promising a terrific summer of music: Vandal in Biarritz, Papa Style in Bordeaux, Elton John in Argèles sur Mer, Klingande in Cannes or Jean Michel Jarré in Nîmes to name just a few.
I remember an open air concert by the charismatic tenor Luciano Pavarotti in London; the Rolling Stones in Zürich, when my colleague literally fainted just by looking at Barry. Or the one with Zucchero (the Italian) in Locarno where I felt as though the whole Piazza Grande was shaking. To share a passion like music with so many good-humoured people is truly wonderful!
