The largest and most established annual curated multi-arts festival in England, Brighton Festival is a celebration of music, theatre, dance, circus, art, film, literature, debate, outdoor and family events, which takes place in venues both familiar and unusual in the city of Brighton and Hove in England each May.

Established in 1967, Brighton Festival has become one of the city's most enduring symbols of inventiveness over the past half century. In 1964 the first moves were made to hold a Festival in Brighton, and Ian Hunter, the eventual Artistic Director of the Festival, submitted a programme of ideas. This was followed by a weekend conference in 1965, and the Board of the Brighton Festival Society was born. The first Festival was held in 1967, and included the first ever exhibition of Concrete Poetry in the UK, alongside performances by Laurence Olivier and Yehudi Menuhin.

In the introduction to the 1968 Festival programme, Ian Hunter explained the original intentions of the Festival: “The aim of the Brighton Festival is to stimulate townsfolk and visitors into taking a new look at the arts and to give them the opportunity to assess developments in the field of culture where the serious and the apparently flippant ride side by side.”

Now one of Europe’s leading arts festivals, Brighton Festival is known for its ambitious and daring programme that aims to make the most of the city’s distinctive cultural atmosphere, drawing some of the most innovative artists and companies and adventurous audiences from the UK and around the world.

Jointly produced with award-winning community arts organisation Same Sky, the annual Children’s Parade officially launches Brighton Festival and has delighted participants and spectators for over 25 years. The largest of its kind in Europe, the parade is attended by almost 5,000 children from schools and community groups from across the region and cheered on by many thousands of spectators.

In 2016 Brighton Festival celebrated its 50th year of commissioning and producing innovative arts and culture. The milestone 50th edition - with experimental artist and musician Laurie Anderson as Guest Director - was the most successful in its history.The Festival’s biggest talking point was Nutkhut’s Dr Blighty,[1] an ambitious, large-scale, free immersive, outdoor experience co-commissioned in partnership with Royal Pavilion & Museums and 14-18 NOW, which highlighted the story of wounded Indian soldiers hospitalised in Brighton during WW1. Ending each night with a spectacular light display using projection-mapping, Dr Blighty set the city and social media abuzz and drew audiences of almost 65,000 over its five-day run.

Heartland Festival combines live talks and contemporary art with the greatest things from the music and food scene. The festival takes places at one of the most scenic places in Denmark; in the gardens surrounding Egeskov Castle on the island of Funen. Heartland Festival is created in collaboration with some of the most prominent and skillful people in their fields.

Heartland curates to a quality-driven and culturally interested audience. Festival director, Ulrik Ørum-Petersen says:
“Heartland Festival is an attempt to create a festival unlike other existing festivals in Denmark. A festival that resembles successful international festivals such as ones seen in e.g. England and The Netherlands. To be able to create this type of festival in Denmark at one of the most beautiful spots in the world is a dream come true.“

VIVID TALKS AND GREAT CULINARY EXPERIENCES
Heartland creates its program in collaboration with partners, curators, and advisors amongst the most capable in the country. Danish and international participants discuss and address the times we live in and the lives we lead today.

When it comes to food, our ambition is to create unique experiences with emphasis on local produce and exclusive quality.

CONTEMPORARY ART AND AN INTERNATIONAL MUSIC PROGRAM
The aim with presenting contemporary art at Heartland Festival is to elaborate on the contrasts between contemporary art, an open air space, and a castle from the 16th century.

This year the festival will be organised for the sixth time.

At Best Kept Secret, we program artists we – as fans of music – would like to see live, preferably in front of a larger audience than said artists are used to. By doing so, we don’t think in genres or stylistics. Whether it’s indie rock, hip hop, electronic music: as long as we dig it, it deserves a slot at our festival. With over a hundred artists, bands and DJs performing at Best Kept Secret perennially, there’s plenty of stuff to discover.

To make the experience that much more fulfilling, we take great pride in making the festival site as beautiful and practical as possible. Best Kept Secret exhibits and utilizes the gorgeous woodland area surrounding safari park Beekse Bergen, with a beautiful lakeside to boot. Our open air main stage ONE can be found right at the beach. The additional stages are sheltered by the bordering woodlands. If you follow the hubbub through the woods, you’ll eventually find your way to FOUR, better known as the DJ-stage. Over here, our host St, Paul stands behind the turntables to share his love and enthusiasm for music, along with an assembly of guest DJs and heads.

Camping is another integral part of Best Kept Secret. You can sleep on the natural campsite, rent a cosy bungalow or stay inside a log cabin at the bungalow park. Not only does Best Kept Secret deliver diversity and balance in its programming and facilities, there’s also a strong emphasis on providing good, sustainable food and drinks.

Best Kept Secret is all about giving you and your friends the opportunity to shape your own festival experience. Take your chums to an area where only the loudest and darkest music will be played, grab the mic to sing karaoke, challenge your friends to a video game or sit down at our long table. And most importantly, enjoy this weekend of great music and exciting performances with us!

The Caribana Festival in Crans-près-Céligny, Vaud, Switzerland started in 1990 as an opportunity for people in Switzerland to enjoy live music at the shores of Lake Léman. The event has grown over the years and changed from a free, small, local festival to an international event with 19,500 visitors in 2005.

Caribana lasts for four days (Thursday to Sunday) and offers a variety of artists. It is not, as its name suggests, an event devoted to Caribbean music.

It is usually held on the Pentecost weekend (Pinksteren in Dutch, hence the name). Starting in1970, at Burgemeester Damen Sportpark in the town of Geleen, PinkPop is the oldest and longest running annual dedicated pop and rock music festival in the world.

Nowadays, Pinkpop is a three-day festival, from Saturday through Monday, with a 60,000 people per day capacity, and with performances on 4 separate stages. From 2006 through 2011, Pinkpop sold out six years in a row. During 44 editions, more than 2 million people have attended Pinkpop. Some 700 music acts have played at the festival.

In 1994 (the 25th edition), it was decided to sell only 60,000 tickets, to prevent overcrowding due to the popularity of the festival. In 1995, it was made into a 2-day festival. Two years later, in 1997, this was further expanded to three days.

2007 saw a spin-off, later in the year, on 11 August, called Pinkpop Classic, for an older rock audience, with bands that previously performed there in past decades. This spin-off was held again in following years, with exception of 2011, in which the organisation was not able to sign enough interesting older bands.

In 2008, Pinkpop was for the first time in its history not held on Pentecost weekend, which fell too early that year for the convenience of fans and performers alike. This was decided following the 2005 edition, in which the Pentecost weekend also fell early and therefore Pinkpop could not convince many great performers to come play at the festival. Sales were disappointing in 2005, so by shifting the 2008 festival, the organization hoped to solve these problems. Pinkpop 2008 turned out to have had the largest concert attendance to date. The dates for the 2010, 2013, 2015 and 2016 edition have been shifted as well, for similar reasons.

Body&Soul is a celebration of life, diversity, music, culture and the arts across three days and nights, hosted on one of Ireland’s most stunning country estates.

Every year our latest crew of Body&Soulers make the pilgrimage to this beautiful, verdant land that is transformed into a colourful festival village. It’s filled with hand-crafted stages, 15th century walled gardens, hidden forest dens, magnificent art trails and al fresco spas where the only rule is to expect the unexpected.

What began as a back garden gathering has slowly grown into an unrivalled event, where every moment is curated and every sound considered. Body&Soul is comprised of creative collectives from Ireland and abroad that have sought to push the limits and explore the fringes of how the festival mould can benefit the world around it.

We’re also dedicated to reducing our impact on the land, taking new steps each year to make the festival more sustainable. Through affecting positive change we want to continue to use the land that hosts us for many years to come, and we encourage our Body&Soulers to join in the journey.

We’re an independent festival with a heart-shaped mind and a cutting edge soul.

According to numerous media reports (including Wikinews) the Donauinselfest is Europe's biggest open-air event; with over 3 million visitors. Some 1500 volunteer assistants and visible police presence help make the Donauinselfest one of the most secure big events.

There are some 21 areas (called "islands" as well) that are normally sponsored by radio stations, newspapers and other companies. These are spread out over a 6.5 kilometer area of the total of 21 kilometer island. Musicians of an extremely broad range of genres perform.

The layout is roughly the same every year, with some stages being removed or added. The musicians also tend to come back every year, or being replaced by other ones that are popular.

To ensure safety of visitors, "house rules" were introduced in 2007 and checkpoint controls established to help control certain items (such as glass and liquor inside the festival perimeter.[2]

Food kiosks serve various national and alternative dishes including Thai, Greek, Italian, Indian, Turkish, Vegetarian and Austrian cuisine. Although all concerts are free, financial experts calculate Vienna's economy benefits from this event by almost € 40 million, due to the increased tourism
