The world has a never ending supply of cool exhibitions, gigs, shows, festivals (we could go on), and with so many events to choose from it can be difficult deciding what you want to see, so we’ve done the hard part and picked out some of the coolest cultural highlights in April to make this month a little bit sweeter.
Germany: The 1975
We wrote about their amazing new album ‘ I Like It When You Sleep, for You Are So Beautiful Yet So Unaware of It’ last month and now you can catch The 1975 on their latest world tour. Catch them in Austria before they leave Europe to continue their tour over in the states for the rest of April.

Probably one of the most famous music festivals on the planet. The Coachella valley Music and Arts Festival (or more commonly known as Coachella) is back again for two weekends in April. The festival has an array of musical genres, from rock and indie to hip-hop to electronic dance music. Festival attendees can expect to see some huge names in the music world performing, such as Disclosure and Grimes, and this year the original Guns N’ Roses members (Axl Rose, Slash and Duff McKagan) are reuniting for a performance that attendees won’t forget in a hurry. You’re also more than likely to spot a celebrity or two at the festival as it seems to be THE festival to attend in celeb world.
