South Africa’s answer to Nevada’s legendary Burning Man Festival is a wild and wonderful six days of fire, festivities and art installations on a private farm called Stonehenge in the arid semidesert of Northern Cape roughly 300 kilometres from Cape Town. The next event is scheduled for April 2018.
The Proms, London
Its name is short for promenade concerts, and it’s a hugely popular festival of classical music held at the Royal Albert Hall and other venues. The series comprises 92 concerts between July and September with tickets priced as low as £5. Conductors lead orchestras through a wide range of music by composers such
as Beethoven, Wagner and Bruckner—and even Hollywood film scores. The season runs from July 14 to September 9.
The two-weekend valley festival returns to Indio, California, from April 13 to 15 and from April 20 to 22. Its much-anticipated lineup includes Beyoncé, Eminem, The Weeknd, and many more stars—plus, delicious food and creative art installations.
São Paulo Biennale
Initiated in 1951, the Bienal de São Paulo is the second oldest art festival of its type in the world after the Venice Biennale. The next one, to take place in September 2018, will bring a flood of local and international artists and galleries to the city for a celebration of cultural life.
