July means good weather, holidays and opportunity to travel and have a good time! These are our music festival proposals for this coming July: wanna join?
TRNSMT 7-9 July, Glasgow, Scotland
This is the +1. Why? Because it’s a new festival but not so much. TNSMT is taking the place of the legendary T in the Park that had been celebrating for 23 years, and that unfortunately celebrated its last edition last year because of administrative problems. TRNSMT promises, however, to pick up the legacy of T in the Park and beyond. The line up this year is full of top bands: Radiohead and Belle and Sebastian, Kasabian on Saturday, and on Sunday you can enjoy Biffy Clyro – amongst many, many others. Don’t miss Two Door Cinema Club on Sunday! their song “What you know” is one of my favourites ever!!
TRNSMT offers one-day tickets (£59.50 or €68.84 ), two days (£110 – €127.27) and three days (£155 – €179.33 ). You can choose the VIP option as well, with access to the VIP area and more surprises. There are also package packages with accommodation (TRNSMT does not offer camping, as did T in the Park), so be fast or you will have issues finding accommodation.
Public transport will be reinforced so you do not miss a single concert, and return to a Glasgow in a heartbeat.

FIB 13-17 July, Benicassim, Spain
The International Festival of Benicassim (FIB) is THE Summer festival “par excellence”. Mix good weather, Mediterranean beach, camping and the best music of the moment and you have a super plan for four days.
FIB’s line-up is always an interesting combination, presenting world-renowned (and very fashionable) figures, with local and alternative groups, along with an important representation of the techno scene. In this, the twenty-second edition of the FIB, the line-up is simply amazing: The Weeknd, Bonobo and Kölsh among others on Thursday, Deadmous5, Los Planetas and La Casa Azul on Friday, Red Hot Chilli Peppers Liam Gallagher and Mala Rodriguez on Saturday, and Sunday you will enjoy Kasabian, Crystal Fighters, and Years and Years.
Tickets range from 1 day for €50 (Saturday €65), to the full package of 4 days for the bargain €149.
Interesting to know that children are allowed if accompanied by adults, and, if they are under 12 they have free entrance. So you do not have to leave them anywhere. You no longer have an excuse!
The campsite will be open from 10 to 17 July,

Ultra Europe 14- 16 July, Split, Croacia
In an unbeatable environment, in the city of Split, will take place the fifth edition of Ultra Europe (worthy sister of Ultra Miami, which began its journey there in 1999).
Ultra is an electronic music festival, featuring the top-top DJs of the moment. For real. THE. BEST.
The headliners are none other than: Afrojack, Armin van Buuren, Carl Cox, Hardwell, Dubfire, David Guetta, Martin Garrix. Marco Carola, Steve Aoki, Axwell & Ingrosso, Seve Angello (the former three used to be known as Swedish House Mafia) … need I say more?
The bad (or good?) news is that if you want to join Ultra, it’s all or nothing: there are only tickets for the three days of the festival, at €169. They also have a “combo” ticket for €319 that includes all the celebrations before and after the weekend.
On their website you can also get information about the accommodation, where they offer different options from the comfort of an apartment to the charm of the campsite.

Welcome to the Future, 22 julio Amsterdam, Holanda
July + Amsterdam = THE place to be. Take it from a person that lives for over 11 years in the city of canals.
Welcome to the Future (or WTTF as you’ll find it on the networks) is the July event in the Dam, and rightfully so.
In the unique setting of Het Twiske, north of Amsterdam, surrounded by an endless forest, you will be able to enjoy the good vibes of these type of events in Holland (the pioneers, the best organized by far).
The line-up this year does not disappoint: you can enjoy Kölsh, Loco Dice, Chris Liebning, Adriatique, Paco Osuna, Artefakt, Monoloc and Daniel Sánchez, among many others.
The ticket price is €53,50, to which you would like to add the price of the shuttle that will take you back and forth to the Sloterdijk station (perfectly communicated with the center of Amsterdam) for €12.
Being a one-day event there are no packages with accommodation, so you need to hurry up, since Amsterdam is a hive of action during the Summer, and the choices are scarce and expensive.

Tomorrowland, 21-23 and 28-30 July, Boom, Bélgica
Tomorrowland is the largest festival in Europe (with more than 400,000 attendees), and the best known for obvious reasons.
With 16 (yes, 16!) different stages, it takes place during the last two weekends of July, with an impressive line-up featuring more than 200 artists in the electronic music scene.
You won’t miss any. Surely your favourites will play – and so will mine: Axwell / Ingrosso, Martin Solveig, Joris Voorn, Kölsch, Sven Väth, Nina Kraviz, Luciano, Quintino, Martin Garrix, David Guetta …
Big issue!!! You need to register way in advance to get the tickets. Currently is sold out, and the waiting list is closed.
Very important: do not buy resale tickets, as tickets are personal and not transferable, and they ones they offer in second market are often a scam.
Maybe you already have the tickets in your pocket … or maybe you will make sure to join next year… let us know!
