It’s summer! Wearing light clothes and with a camera slung over the shoulder, you’re ready to try new experiences and take plenty of pictures to share. Here’s an overview of the best summer music festivals in 2017. 

The eclectic festival: Lollapalooza  

This year, the Lollapalooza music festival is coming to Paris. Venue: the Longchamp Racecourse, 22 – 23 July 2017. The line-up features something for everyone: urban music with IAM and The Weeknd, pop rock with Imagine Dragons, legendary rock with Red Hot Chili Peppers or electro music with Martin Solveig and Yellow Claw or DJ SNAKE.

Whether with family or friends, we already adore Lollapalooza 2017. We’re ready to flood the green lawns of Longchamp Racecourse with colour and a festive atmosphere this summer. 100% instagramable, the festival is like a huge playground with acres of freedom. And between concerts, why not go and discuss sustainable development at the LollaGreen? Or sample the delicious platters of chef Jean Imbert? Hurry, don’t miss out on tickets. This is a festival that you won’t want to miss.

 Head to Dour in Belgium for an out-of-the-ordinary musical and cultural experience. The Dour music festival welcomes visitors between 12 – 16 July 2017 for an incredible line-up: M.I.A., Vald, Wax Tailor, Solange, Møme, The Black Madonna, Die Antwoord, Justice, Tale of Us and many others.

Dour is a ‘festivillage’ that brings people together, where feet have fun in the mud dancing to Rock, Electro and Hip Hop, while 20 000 people sing along. Capture each one of these moments in a photo to make your summer memories last.

The phenomenal festival: Sziget

The Hungarians love to party and they’re making this clear. In 2017, Budapest will once again be hosting the Sziget music festival, to the delight of Europe’s party people. Apart from the lineup featuring spectacular headlining acts (Major Lazer, Macklemore, Wiz Khalifa, Flume, Steve Aoki, Cashmere Cat, etc.), what we like about this festival is its sublimely colourful scenography that spans across the Pantone spectrum.

Each year, numerous artists and designers create astonishing and interactive pieces that decorate the site of the festival and celebrate the principles of liberty, friendship, passion and sharing. A unique occasion to get your Instagram account buzzing. So head to Budapest 9 – 16 August 2017 for a feast for the eyes and ears!

The electro festival: Sónar

In the Barcelona sun, with a drink in hand, you’ll tap your feet to the rhythms of house, techno and electro at the Sónar Festival, 15 – 17 June 2017. Dive into the experimental universe of Björk, Nicolas Jaar or Vitalic, who all feature on the line-up. Don’t forget your selfie stick, because the different concert stages of this music festival promise a joyful mix of neon lights and luminous installations of every kind. Capture them in a Photo Book for a funky souvenir!

The festival for rebels: Leeds

Set off for the region of Yorkshire and the Humber, in north of England, to the city of Leeds and experience so much more than a rock’n’roll music festival. Between 25 – 27 August, concerts from Muse, Kasabian, Bastille and Korn to Eminem and Flatbush Zombies will shake up your summer.

Bring a pair of wellies because this is the UK. Your “festival” look will be perfect for taking selfies and souvenir photos.
