Festival season is back, and we’re super excited! This summer we are finally free after two years of trying to occupy ourselves with online Zoom quizzes, watching TV shows and even trying our luck playing Platincasino live casino games. With festivals back on, we can experience live music again; whether it’s rock, pop, hip-hop or metal — there’s something for everyone this summer.
Rolling Loud Portugal
The ‘world’s largest hip-hop festival,’ Rolling Loud Portugal, is making its European debut in July 2022 for an epic three-day celebration. Set on the beautiful Praia da Rocha beach in the coastal town of Portimão, this festival takes place from the 6th to the 8th of July and features some of hip-hop’s best artists that you definitely won’t want to miss. J. Cole will headline the first day, A$AP Rocky the second day, and Future will close out the event. If hip-hop is your vibe, you won’t be disappointed with this lineup and what promises to be a fantastic setting.
Mad Cool Festival
After a two-year hiatus, Spain’s Mad Cool Festival returns to Madrid from July 6th to 10th with a massive lineup, including some of the world’s greatest names.
Rock legends Metallica will headline the first day, with Stormzy, the godfather of grime, providing a change of pace on Thursday evening. Muse and Queens of the Stone Age will deliver a riff-heavy epic double bill on Friday night. Florence and the Machine, Pixies, and Kings of Leon will be fighting to see who can get the most significant crowd jam session on Saturday night, while White Stripes’ Jack White will close out.
Simply put, Tomorrowland is the world’s largest electronic music festival. Massive headliners and incredible attention to detail create an unrivalled paradise that continues to captivate the world. Tomorrowland will take place in Boom, Belgium, over three weekends between 15th and 31st July. During this magical event, world-famous DJs such as Eric Prydz, Martin Garrix, Dimitri Vegas and Like Mike will perform, together with many more house, trance, trap, chill and electro legends. You’ll be guaranteed to be transported into a musical fantasy with a thrilling electric atmosphere at ten incredible mystical-themed stages.
LooseFest returns to Newcastle’s Town Moor on the 30th and 31st of July for a breathtaking two-day event with some of the world’s best performers. There’s an incredibly stacked lineup for this summer music festival, including big names such as Black Eyed Peas, Clean Bandit, AJ Tracey, Joel Corry, Example, Jonas Blue and Roger Sanchez. As well as world-famous entertainers, festival-goers can expect a carnival funfair with a Ferris wheel and a street food village. Pop, tech house, disco and rap music will play on numerous all-weather stages, and given the UK’s erratic weather, the performance will continue, come rain or snow!
There’s something about live music that really unites people as a community. If you didn’t manage to get tickets or just missed any of the festivals we’ve mentioned, there are plenty more throughout July 2022, such as Afro Nation Portugal and Bilbao BBK Live. Whatever you decide, it’ll be an amazing summer!
