Festivals in AugustBy Roos @ Team Unicorn | augustus 1, 2017
How do we combine them ALL?!
There are so many sparkly festivals in August. Yoohoo! Festival season is completely here! Even when the weather is not spectacular, we still know how to party. When the weather is amazing: we will shoot stars! Get your rain boots and your poncho, or put on your Chucks and your Levi shorts: either way make this month fantastic by visiting one of the following festivals:
Date: August 2 – 6
Location: Amsterdamse Bos
Man, this is a place where electronic music dreams come true. If you enjoy deep bases, profound melodies and dark jingles this is your festival. Dekmantel promises us 4 days of different types of electronic music like Antal & Hunee, Mathew Jonson, Omar S and Jeff Mills. For every taste a flavour.
Date: August 3 – 6
Location: Maasplassen, Roermond
Solar Weekend invites you to a few days full of music, creativity and love! Solar weekend is your ultimate holiday. There will be theatre, amusement, crazy statues and dance battles. You can even join gym classes to prepare you fully for your dance moves. Don’t forget to buy your Team Unicorn t-shirt!
Date: August 5
Location: Dok Amsterdam
Need a break from enormous and overwhelming festivals? Don’t want to pay 70€ for your entrance ticket only? Then Dagdromen festival fulfils all your wishes. This festival is a small and intimate deep house festival. Regular tickets are €22,50 only and there are 2 stages.
Date: August 5 – 6
Location: Autotron, Den Bosch
Over 60 DJs over 4 stages in 2 days – this asks for an unlimited dose of energy! It is a Trance Music line-up such as Chris Schweizer, Dimension and Gaia. The festival has a camping, so grab all your Team Unicorn friends and make it an unforgettable (family) weekend. Weekend tickets are available and you can sleep in a real Tipi Tent (Hello?! Amazing??)
Date: August 9 – 16
Sziget takes place on an Island. What? No way. Yes way! An island of dreams with (electronic and live) music, workshops, art and crazy amusement. Never been to Budapest before? Make sure you combine your festival experience with a day or 2 in this beautiful city: it is worth it!
Date: August 12
Location: Flevopark, Amsterdam
Lil’ Wayne is coming to Amsterdam! You can’t deny that is quite awesome. We would for sure love to check his diamond grill from up close. Appelsap festival is a hiphop festival with talented world-known artists and new, young talent.
Date: August 12
Location: Sportpark de Eendracht, Amsterdam
This is totally us! At this festival you are allowed to be a kid again… and what more do we want? The title of the festival refers to an amusement park (Het land van Ooit) that was closed a few years back. The festival will bring back memories for all the kid-dults that went for a nauseating spin in one of the rollercoasters or hunted houses.
Date: August 18 – 20
Uhm.. well… what do we need to say more? Lowlands is a thing – a thing you should have done when living in the Netherlands. From young to old, the Dutchies know and love this diverse festival. It is the most well-known pop festival around. Different music genres like rock, pop and dance are all spread out over different stages.
