London: We Are FSTVL
If you’re a fan of dance music events then oh boy do we have the perfect event for you! We Are FSTVL is a fairly new music festival, it only began in 2013 but that doesn’t mean it’s one to dismiss as it was awarded Best Dance Festival in 2015 by DJ Magazine. Organizers promise a strong club orientated sound over the course of the weekend, with over 200 artists across 16 bespoke stages. We Are FSTVL takes place on a 122 acre former WW1 airfield in Upminster and with huge dance headliners like Fatboy Slim, Steve Angello, Danny Howard, MK and Sven Vath performing over the weekend, it’s pretty much a dance music lovers paradise.

Amsterdam: Keukenhof Gardens
You’ve only got until the 16th of May if you want to take a visit to Keukenhof in Amsterdam. It’s one of the world’s largest flower gardens with approximately 7 million flower bulbs that are planted annually in the park and a total of 800 varieties of tulips, which covers around 79 acres altogether. You can get a guided tour around the park or take a boat trip around the park and we think the park is pretty bloomin’ marvelous (you know us, we can’t resist a good pun).

Berlin: Carnival of Culture
The Carnival of Cultures demonstrates the cultural diversity of Berlin and has been celebrated since 1966. The carnival is celebrated over the Pentecost weekend in Kreuzberg and carnival attendees dress themselves in opulent costumes, striking make up, imaginative masks and decorative hand carts and make their way through the streets of the city. The carnival has culinary delicacies, clothing stands and hand-made crafts and music from all across the world. The highlight of the carnival is the massive street procession on the Sunday, where over 4000 participants from over 80 countries celebrate the mix of cultures in Berlin.
