When else will you be able to belt out your “lady jam” in a foreign country?

You’re surrounded by thousands of other equally as fun (and maybe slightly crazy) people.

If you’re going to go chasing waterfalls, you should consider chasing the ones at Krka National Park.

A music festival with killer headliners, white water rafting down the Cetina River AND island hopping? Is there actually any more one could ask for?

The Best Fest Since Coachella: Barcelona Sonar Music Festival

By Mike Kallay

Mark your calendars, grab your favorite tank top and a pair of cheap sunglasses. Festival season is upon us, and that means Sonar Music Festival in Barcelona is just weeks away. “But Mike,” you say, “What is Sonar and why should I elevate it to the top of my priority list?” Great question, and look no further. Consider this your OFFICIAL Sonar Road Map.

What is Sonar?

Sonar is a Music Festival in the City of Barcelona that brings together some of the biggest names in music from around the world. Last year, 121,000 people flocked to the City of Dreams to see Flux Pavilion, Pretty Lights, DJ Snake, Lykke Li, and Rudimental bring down the house. It audibly encompasses Barcelona’s rich culture and nightlife.

Why should I go?

Going to a music festival during your semester abroad should absolutely be on your priority list. Music festivals in Europe, particularly those that feature electronic music, have the unique ability of bringing together people from all over the world with different cultural backgrounds and uniting them with melodic beats and heavy drops. You’ll look through the crowd and see flags spreading all 6 continents (sorry Antarctica, no penguins allowed, maybe next year). There just isn’t anything quite like it, and if you miss it you’ll feel a little bit like this:

When is it?

Sonar Music Festival is June 18th-20th, you know what that means….

That’s right Husky with negligent owners, Sonar is incredibly soon. So get excited, throw on your dancing shoes, it’s party time party people. Book your trip today!

What’s in the bag?: Croatia Ultra Music Festival

whatsinthebag_Hannah

Right in the heart of Split, Croatia, comes one of the world’s biggest music festivals: Ultra Europe. Are you ready for the most epic weekend in the most beautiful city? Blast some of these tunes and read up on our fanny pack musts for the festival.

1. Fanny Pack – Fanny packs are a must-have at music festivals. You need only the essentials, so why bring a purse or a backpack? Also, it keeps you pretty safe from pick-pocketers.
2. Chapstick – I mean, never leave home without it. Opt for some with SPF for some extra protection.
3. Body Glitter – 0o0o0ohhhh shinnnyyyyyyy 😀
4. Sunscreen – Sunburns are never cool…neither is skin cancer. Protect yourself all day with some SPF love.
5. Granola Bar – When you work up an appetite dancing around all day, you’ll need something to snack on. Also, you won’t have to leave your awesome spot by the stage with your friends to grab some grub.
6. Headband – Channel your inner free spirit with a floral headband. Super functional when you need your hair out of your face!
7. Sunglasses – Make sure to bring some cheap sunglasses you can wear during the day, then ditch at night.
8. Mini Fan – Croatia gets HOT in the Summer. Add hundreds of sweaty people dancing to EDM music and you’ve got yourself a serious situation. Avoid all of that by bringing your own mini fan.
9. External Charger – There’s nothing worse than losing your friends (or wanting to take an epic Instagram picture) and having a dead phone. Make sure you keep your external charger with you all day for emergencies!
10. Lollipops – A music festival necessity.
