Sziget Festival 2016 in BudapestA glamourous city such as Budapest can't help hosting the trendiest artists of the moment.
You just need to take a look at the programme of the Sziget Festival, from the 10th to the 17th of August 2016, to be snared by a range of DJs, singers and musicians famous all over the world.
From Goran Bregovic and his band, ready to delight you with their Balkan melodies, to Bastille and Italian Salmo, you are spoilt for a choice.
We suggest to book your accommodation ASAP, possibly close to the city's centre, so you can be sure you will easily get to the festival using the local transport.
Have a look at the Hotel Mercure Budapest Korona, a wonderful 4-star hotel in the Central Pest area, where you will feel at home: staff is kind and welcoming, rooms (more than 400) provide all the comforts you need (from satellite TV to acoustically isolated windows), at only 17 chilometres from the airport.
Street parade 2016 in ZurichIf you need a break, want to get out of the daily routine and get to know a new city, attending one of the most popular music festivals of the summer is just what you need: we're talking now of the Street Parade in Zurich, on the 13th of August 2016.
This event takes place throughout the city, the purpose being to spread love all around. This precondition, flavoured with fun and good music, made this one of the most awaited electronic music festivals of 2016.
Parties, love mobiles and DJs are ready to entertain people from all the world, in the main streets of Zurich. If you don't know where to stay yet, we suggest you book a room at the Flag Hotel Zurich, just 4.5 chilometres from the centre of Zurich, that offers very reasonable prices for rooms equipped with Wi-Fi, hair-drier and TV.
Sensation AmsterdamAn electronic music festival in Europe, held in Amsterdam, can't be anything but a top event!
If what you are looking for is the very best electronic music can offer, then you can't miss the Sensation Amsterdam, on July the 2nd 2016.
As the name suggests, the main purpose of this event is to offer genre lovers a new music sensation. Dive in a white ocean (dress-code is total white) and discover your wild side with the trendiest artists of the moment!
If you want to rest after dancing until breathless, choose a hotel in the city centre. The Mövenpick Hotel Amsterdam City Centre could be a very good option: it is a 4-star hotel with gym, sauna and relax area, where you can recover your energy.
Sonar BarcelonaAre you looking for a truly hot festival this summer, where fun is the keyword?
Choose the Sonar festival in Barcelona, on the 16-17-18 June 2016: 2 different areas (Fira Montjuïc by day, and Fira Gran Via by night) are set for you to dance and party with your friends.
Here too, international bands, such as King Midas Sound and Fennesz, will take the stage warming up the souls of the most passionate dancers.
If you don't want to miss any of the events in the Sonar programme, choose a hotel in Barcelona close to the event's location, so that you can go back to your room to rest or change clothes anytime you want.
Sansi Diputacio, for instance, is a hotel in the Eixample district, appreciated for being elegant and quiet: a real cure-all after a night out!
