Top Three 2017 Events You Must Go To!

Top Three 2017 Events You Must Go To!

Hey, everyone! Hope you’re all doing amazing! I recently got tickets to an awesome event happening in summer 2017 and I thought this would be the perfect time to recommend some fun events to go to.

1. Weekend Festival Baltic (Northern Europe)

This is the biggest festival in Northern Europe. It has a huge production and over 50 world-famous DJ’s performing every single year. It takes place in Sweden (Stockholm), Finland (Helsinki) and Estonia (Pärnu) usually at the beginning of August. Since I’m from Estonia, I went to the Estonian Weekend Festival for the second year in a row in 2016. It was one of the most amazing experiences of my entire life. If you like dancing on the beach to the most awesome music without any care in the world, this is the place for you. No negativity, no stress, no worries, just dance, music, happiness and freedom. It’s a perfect way to end the summer.

2. Summer in The City (United Kingdom)

This is the UK’s largest online video event. It takes place in London at the beginning of August, just like Weekend Festival. This is also the reason why I’m going to have to skip Weekend Festival in 2017 (which I feel SO sad about), because since I’ve now joined the YouTube community, I want to see what it’s like in the industry. The first day is for the creators and the rest of the weekend is for everyone – this includes performances, different planes from professional YouTubers etc. So if you’re someone interested in blogging/vlogging, definitely take a look at this event! Tickets are now on sale so go grab yours.


3. Positivus Festival (Latvia)

This is a three-day summer and culture festival held in Latvia. This includes various ranges of music: folk, pop, electronic, indie etc. Anything you can think of. So if Weekend Festival’s dance music isn’t really for you, there’s definitely something there for you at Positivus Festival. The event takes place in July so even if you want to go to both the Weekend Festival and this, you are definitely able to.

Of course there are many other huge and amazing events such as Coachella, but I thought these were the three worth mentioning as I am planning to go to these in the future! Hopefully this got you thinking about summer instead of all the assignment deadlines haha! Stay smiling.
