Among the other festivals which succeded to put themselves on track again for this 2022 summer an honourable mention goes to Balaton Sound, expected the next 29 June-2 July on the beautiful shores of the “magyar sea”, the Balaton lake.
The biggest beach party in Europe hasn’t really got a seaside, but the biggest lake in the continent and a 4 days party with a massive line-up surely will serve as well for one of the contender for the crown in this upcoming (and hopefully covid-free) festival season .
The amazing timetable starts on Wednesday, June 29th, with Becky Hill, Lost Frequencies and Martin Garrix leading the mainstage, while on the other 3 stages we’ll find some other really huge names, such as Yellow Claw, Carnage and Moksi, as like Pan-Pot, Loco Dice, Sven Vath and Nastia.
Next Thursday, June 30th, you need to be ready for Alok, Jonas Blue and Dimitri Vegas & Like Mike, closing the mainstage around midnight, but the music at Balaton Sound doesn’t stop until sunrise: at Dreher Arena you can keep on dancing with What So Not, Modestep (live!) and Malaa, while elrow! presents Fisher and Italy’s own Ilario Alicante on the Coca-Cola stage, while Deborah De Luca follows Paul Kalkbrenner on the B Stage, powered by Viper.
Friday, July 1st, sees another bunch of superperstars on the decks: Imanbek, Timmy Trumpet and Marshmello closing a night that features on the side Dillon Francis, Sikdope, Nervo and some of the best Italy can offer with Meduza, Giorgia Angiuli and Giolì & Assia.
The last day, July 2nd, wraps everything up with pride: Topic, Robin Schulz and Alesso close with a bang on the mainstage, and the other stages aren’t behind either: Paul van Dyk, Vini Vici, Blastoyz, Danny Tenaglia, Chris Liebing, Jamie Jones, Richie Hawtin and techno legend Joseph Capriati closing Balaton Sound until the sunrise.
It’s not just about the perfectly balanced line-up, the real charm of Balaton Sound comes from different sided: the aforementioned beautiful frame in which the festival resided, the competitive price of tickets and services (in line with an Hungarian’s lifestyle), but also its organization and unique mood that gather over 150.000 people every year.
Placed only 100km east of Budapest, home of its bigger brother, Sziget Festival, Balaton Sound is the perfect party for whoever is looking for the total package: shores, music until the morning, drink and food with honest prices and a red-hot lineup that will appeal even the snobbest raver, definitely an experience to try.
4-day pass: 225€ (Vip pass: 340€)
3-day pass: 200€ (Vip pass: 305€)
Daily ticket: 72€ (Vip pass: 160€)
If you’re already planning on going East, you should consider Sziget Festival, located as well in Hungary, not distant from Budapest, on an Isle in the Danube, from 10 to 15 of August.
The biggest european festival is active for over 28 years and it’s an incredible experience, in the green woods in which it is placed and surrounded by people and every kind of performative art, you can uncover the more than 34 venues of the festival, with a huge lineup consisting of top superstars like Arctic Monkeys, Calvin Harris, Justin Bieber, Kings of Leon, Tame Impala, Lewis Capaldi, Stromae, Bastille, Dua Lipa and over 100 more artists
If you’re looking for something new instead, you should try the first ever edition of Superbloom, in the frame of the Olympic Park in Munich. Music, street art, fashion, butbut also science and ecology, with a massive lineup as well with David Guetta, Megan Thee Stallion, Calvin Harris, Meduza, Purple Disco Machine, Stromae, Rita Ora, Alan Walker and Macklemore!
