What’s on in Europe: July 2015

Pflasterspektakel festival, Linz

Summer is the time for wine, song and holidays across the Continent. There are wine festivals being held throughout the Rhineland, traditional summer fetes in the Rhône River Valley, and celebrations all along the Danube.

There is never a better time to be in Europe. Here are some great July events to look forward to:


Held in Linz from 23-25 July, the city welcomes some of the best street performers from all over the world.  Pflasterspektakel offers a variety of theatre productions, music of all kinds and dance. Performance artists who are experts in circus skills, including high-wire walkers and fire acrobats, will entertain the crowds. There will also be clowns and comedy performance artists.

Situated on the Danube, the entire city of Linz will feature entertainment. Special squares, inner courtyards and venues will be created so visitors can enjoy the spectacles.

EXIT Festival

Serbia’s premiere musical and cultural festival, EXIT is the biggest event in South Eastern Europe. From 9-12 July, the event is held in the picturesque Petrovaradin Fortress, on the bank of the Danube River in Novi Sad. Previous international musical acts include Stereo MCs, Massive Attack, Franz Ferdinand, Lilly Allen and David Guetta.

This year’s headline act is Emeli Sandé.

In the past, EXIT has won the “Best Overseas Festival” award at the UK Festival Awards and was crowned “Best Major Festival” at the 5th Annual European Festival Awards 2013. The event is best known for its fun atmosphere and positive energy.

Vienna Festival of Lights at the Alte Donau

On 25 July, the Old Danube will be filled with ornately decorated boats, colorful lanterns and Venetian-style gondolas. The Vienna Festival of Lights combines stunning visuals, music, fireworks and the river to create a one-of-a-kind experience.

The event is supported by Radio Wien. The station will present a special musical evening to accompany the festival. The Old Danube, a former branch of the famous European river, is now a recreational area for visitors. The Old Danube draws about 1.5 million visitors per year.
