Norrkoping’s RMH music festival
Norrkoping’s RMH music festivals have become a tradition for the Scandinavian region, and this year is no exception. The opening night kicks off the festival at Arbis, an old amateur theatre turned nightclub. The opening night kicks off with a tribute to Swedish rap group Viola Beach, followed by networking opportunities and showcases. The festival continues the next day with the Norrkoping Lounge, featuring stand-up comedy and live music.
Coachella Valley’s Stagecoach
Stagecoach is one of the most popular music festivals in the United States. The festival takes place in Indio, California, and has sold out in the past. This year’s event set a record attendance of over 75,000. It’s important to pack light and stay hydrated because temperatures can reach 115 degrees Fahrenheit (43 degrees Celsius) during the day. At night, temperatures drop to 50 degrees (10 degrees Celsius).
Bonnaroo’s return to Randall’s Island
With the cancellation of Electric Zoo 2020 due to COVID, Bonnaroo’s return to New York City has welcomed news for the music festival. This summer’s festival will take place on the first weekend of June, and will feature artists like Kanye West, the Strokes, and The Killers. Although the festival is located just outside the city, it’s still convenient to the downtown core and close to public transportation.
Boston Calling’s Hangout Fest
It’s not often that a festival is as well-attended as Boston Calling’s Hangout Fest, but this year, the organizers are doing a better job than in past years. While Solange had been set to headline the festival, she opted out due to production delays and complications. In her place, Migos will take the stage. While it is unclear when she’ll be back to the headline, the Hangout fest is a great way to catch up with your favorite bands in an intimate environment.
South by Southwest’s Firefly
The Coronavirus has forced the cancellation of three festivals: the Coachella Valley Music and Arts Festival last week, the Stagecoach music festival this week, and the Firefly Music Festival. Although festival organizers have not released an official statement on the outbreak, it is believed to affect as many as 60,000 attendees. As a result, several local businesses have canceled their events to avoid the problem.
UK’s Tchaikovsky competition for violinists
The UK’s Tchaikovsky competition, which has been running since 1992, was threatened with closure when the original festival moved to St Petersburg. The competition was saved thanks to the work of Valery Gergiev, who is perhaps the most well-connected musician in the world. In his role as general manager of the competition, Rodzinski set up an entirely new voting system. As such, the competition is now fair and above reproach.
