Planning a post-grad Eurotrip this summer? Yaaassssss!

While this will for sure go down in the books as the most epic travel experience of your life, your first jet-set moments (alone or with friends) can be pretty intimidating. Trust us, we know.

You’ve got a lot to plan: flights, hostels (yes, there ARE nice ones!), budgets, and your outfits – whew! – it’s a lot to take in. It can all feel a little like 👇

Relax tho. It’s totally worth it. And once you’re there, you’ll wanna add some of the raddest festivals of the season to your itinerary.

Here’s a list of some not-to-be-missed festivals in Europe this summer.

Primavera Sound
Barcelona, Spain
1-5 June, 2016

This is festival heaven for soaring talent and the best of the best. Plus, you’ll be in Spain with the sea right behind you. Bring comfy shoes, a sunhat, and water.

Lineup: Radiohead, LCD Soundsystem, PJ Harvey, Tame Impala, Sigur Rós, Last Shadow Puppets, Animal Collective, Brian Wilson, John Carpenter, and more!

Yes, please.

Field Day
London, UK
11-12 June, 2016

Field Day takes place over two days in Victoria Park, and doesn’t require a long trek out of London (yay!). There’s an unmissable mix of indie, EDM, and some cutting edge artists.

Lineup:  Ata Kak, Avalon Emerson, Cass McCombs, Dean Blunt, Deerhunter, DJ Koze, Dusky, Floating Points, Four Tet, Holly Herndon, Kink, Meilyr Jones, Motor City Drum Ensemble, Mount Kimbie, Mura Masa, and more!

Roskilde, Denmark
25 June - 2 July, 2016

Roskilde has been described as having a utopian feel…and we’re so down with that. It also has the added benefit of having a humanitarian heart – which makes it even cooler. Leftover food goes to homeless shelters, and water is free instead of $4 or more. Yikes.

Lineup: LCD Soundsystem, Macklemore + Ryan Lewis, MO, Neil Young + Promise of the Real, New Order, PJ Harvey, Red Hot Chili Peppers, Tame Impala, Tenacious D, Wiz Khalifa, and more!

Secret Solstice
Reykjavik, Iceland
16-19 June, 2016

Iceland is all the rage these days, and for good reason. It’s beautiful. And they have the midnight sun; during the summer solstice, the sun literally sets at midnight and rises again at 3am. There’s a great lineup of DJs, and – you heard right – volcano powered pool parties.

Lineup: Radiohead, Deftones, Of Monsters and Men, Die Antwoord , and more!

So let the European adventure begin! Gather your besties, stuff that suitcase with our festival collection, and prepare for the summer of your life.
