STARTS TOMORROW! Weather festival (Paris) is the first international techno and house festival ever organized in Paris and its suburbs.

With a prestigious program mixing house and techno, the festival will host a selection of major artists, both French and international; both cult and promising talents, many European musicians but also DJs from as far away as Detroit or South Africa.

Tomorrowland (Belgium) is a one of the most notable global music festivals in the World and is held in Belgium. The festival takes place in the town of Boom.

22nd  - 27th of July

Paleo Festival (Switzerland) is one of Europe’s biggest open-air rock music festivals. It started very small in a local room of the municipality of Nyon but now it exists since more than 30 years. Its location is perfect; you are facing the impressive and wild Swiss mountains and still a few hours of two biggest Swiss cities Geneva and Lausanne.
