Garbicz Festival 2024

August 1 – 5, Kosciuszki 44, Gądków Wielki, Poland

This one's for those seeking connection. To others, to nature, and of course, to electronic music. Dubbed a 'techno spa' by its fans on social media, this festival takes place in the stunning Polish village of Garbicz for a shindig surrounded by ancient trees (some over 500 years old).

Expect a fusion of music, art, and environmental consciousness, set in this stunning Polish landscape. This festival also emphasises a respect for nature and creating a harmonious, mutually respectful community.

JazzOpen 2024

July 18-29, various venues

Looking for live music in Germany this summer? Jazz Open Stuttgart 2024, from July 18-29, shines with a lineup that bridges jazz with blues, indie, pop, R&B, rock, and soul. Previously having drawn accolades like Festival of the Year, it draws around 50,000 attendees to Stuttgart.

This year features stars such as Lenny Kravitz, Herbert Grönemeyer & Band with the Stuttgarter Philharmoniker, Sting, Sam Smith, and Jamie Cullum, promising memorable performances across four main stages.

Heads up - while passes for the whole festival are available, it's also possible to buy tickets to individual concerts and shows on this festival's line-up.

Into the Madness 2024

Fri, August 30, 12:00 PM, Seepark Zülpich, Zülpich, Germany

What would it be like to go to a festival during an apocalypse? Into the Madness seems to know the answer.

Seepark Zülpich comes alive this August with Into The Madness 2024 with a self-professed "scavengerhunt for grown-ups". The lineup promises a blend of hardstyle and techno D-Sturb, Deadly Guns, Dimitri K, Kruelty Live, Mutilator, Primeshock, Rooler, Sub Zero Project, and The Purge.

And don't worry - amid the delicious chaos there's plenty of opportunities to relax in a hammock, grab some good food and vibe to the neon lights. The world's not ending just yet...

Immergut 2024

May 30 – June 1, Bürgerseeweg 28, Neustrelitz, Germany

Immergut's 2024 lineup reads like a who's-who of European acts to catch this year championing a mix of emerging and established acts, with Σtella, yunè pinku, Lime Garden, Dry Cleaning and tonnes more gracing its stages. That's because the team behind the festival are keen to help their attendees get introduced to at least a handful of new acts during their time at Immergut.

It's also a pretty intimate festival, described in the past as a 5000-people-circle of friends, so expect something a little more personal, too.

Waldfrieden 2024

Jul 25 – 28, Waldfrieden Events, Stemwede, Germany

Fancy a festival in a fairytale forest? Waldfrieden's your go-to.

Waldfrieden Wonderland is celebrated for its deep dive into electronic music, spanning techno, house, psytrance, and ambient genres. It's set in a stunning natural environment, combining music, workshops, and art installations for a sustainable and eco-friendly festival experience. The 2024 lineup for Waldfrieden Wonderland is still under wraps, but given last year's lineup (featuring heavyweights like Dr. Motte, Koxbox, Electric Universe, Naolabz, Fluoelf, and Protonica) expect something electric.

Nibirii Festival 2024

Aug 23 – 25, Dürener Badesee, Düren, Germany

Find your way to the picturesque Dürener Badesee lake for the glorious Nibirii Festival, which has evolved from a small club event into a festival scene gem in Germany.

Expect a vibrant mix across techno, psytrance and drum and bass across the festival's five stages, including a brand new Club stage.

The programme features acts like Vini Vici, Ace Ventura, and Mandragora, to name just a few - but major artists like Skrillex have swung by in the past for surprise appearances too.
