Just a month later, the Grape festival
will take place at the same spot between August 11 and August 12. An open-air festival that started in 2010, Grape has made a name for itself and every year thousands of music lovers even from abroad flock to its premises. Its aim is to bring lesser known musicians, both local and from abroad, to Slovakia. In 2012 and 2014 it ranked among the top 10 best smaller festivals on the Europe Festival Awards list.
The TopFest festival
, with its 20-year history, has become the largest gathering of rock music fans in the country. Taking place at the turn of June and July, this year’s edition will return to its roots in Nové Mesto nad Váhom, western Slovakia.
festivals take place on August 4 and 6. While the former is a synonym of unusual experience and friendship, the latter combines multiple genres with the unique environment of the Strážovské Vrchy mountain range.
The Uprising festival
has become an inseparable part of the end of summer. Since its founding in 2008, it has become the biggest festival of its kind in central Europe, with its fanbase growing every year. Taking place between August 25 and 26 at Zlaté Piesky lake in Bratislava, its goal is to bring together people of various cultural, ethnic and racial backgrounds.
Even though it is called a reggae festival, to say that Uprising is monothematic would be a severe understatement. Visitors can hear music from genres such as dancehall, Latin, dubstep and many others, not to mention the sports tournaments, yoga workshops and discussions. The festival was named to commemorate an important historic event, the Slovak National Uprising.
Whether you decide to visit any of the mentioned festivals, or choose from a number of others, you will definitely have great fun and a lot of memorable experiences, because traveling to Slovakia is a good idea.
