Another whirlwind edition of 100 Nights of Summer is on the books with me attending 15 music festivals in 15 straight weekends in 15 different countries. I’ll freely admit that it’s all a bit of blur, but I was lucky enough to bring along a camera and a laptop and manged to capture a few of the memories.
It all started out at with the world’s largest philosophy and music festival in Wales back at the end of May. Then it was off to a triple repeat of my absolute favorite boutique indie music festivals, some metal in Denmark, and a couple of the largest fests in both Czech and Slovakia. I danced until eight in the morning in the dance arena at EXIT, went back to my adopted hometown in Romania for Electric Castle, broke a 50-day drought in England, and knocked “off” one of my oldest bucket list festivals in Poland. I traveled to brand three brand new countries (Sweden, Lithuania, Ukraine) and saw how they festival, before wrapping it all up in the absolute stunning green field beauty of Scotland.
A really big thanks to all the festivals for hosting me and the 100 Nights of Summer Tour. I’d also like to thank Klymit, Big Agnes, and WestJet for sending along products for me to review along the way. It can be a mentally and physically draining tour, so all that help is appreciated. Also, an especially big thanks to my mom, who proofreads all my articles, and still thinks I don’t eat enough fruit when I’m traveling.
