Winter is coming… but fear not, there is still some outdoor fun to be had. We have put together a list of 5 festivals worth checking out over the next few months. Hope to see you there!
1. Strawberry Fields @ Australia (21-23 November 2014)

3. Sonar @ Reykjavik, Iceland (12-14 February 2015)
Started in 2002, Sonar has been a global event, taking place in Barcelona as well as in other locations every year. Unlike the Barcelona edition, the Reykjavik event is called a ‘satellite’ festival, which means that the location changes every year. The International Festival of Advanced Music and New Media Art has the goal of combining aspects of music, creativity, technology, innovation and business together. By creating this meeting point in Reykjavik, Iceland, Sonar will convey the message that even a small event can foster great creativity and memories. Line up this year includes Paul Kalkbrenner, Nina Kraviz, Skrillex and Todd Terje.
2014 is the first ever year that Rise Festival is taking place. Simply put it is snowboarding and skiing during the day and partying at night. With headliner Clean Bandit and artists as Toyboy & Robin, Dj EZ and Capulet (the duo behind Troupe) the festival will be a good trek for house music lovers.
