Cargese Sound Festival in France
Premierement, allons-y a la France! We need to get there soon, because this event is happening from August 3 to 5!
Cargese Sound Festival was created back in 2011 by a group of young Cargesians to fill a cultural void in Corsica. They’re celebrating this year with cutting-edge programming, visual design, and professional quality placed in traditional Cargest to create a destination for both locals and international travelers.
As the name suggests, the festival is happening in southern Corisca in the Canton of Sevi-Sorru-Cinarca. It’s absolutely stunning!
Another stunner? The lineup that they put together! The headliners include Black Coffee, Damian Lazarus, Derrick May, DJ Tennis, and Lowris to name a few! You need to go on their website to check out all the names!

All Together Now is happening from August 3-5 during Bank Holiday Weekend at Curraghmore House at Co. Waterford in Ireland! This is the official debut of the festival, which advocates for freedom and escapism through art! They have various forms like spoken word, comedy, theater, debate, workshops, and of course, music!
Across 10 stages are different artists from varying genres. Some of the names you’re surely familiar with include Fleet Foxes, Underworld, Roisin Murphy, Mura Masa, Villagers, First Aid Kit, and Chaka Khan! Look at All Together Now’s website for all of the names!
What I love about this festival is that a group of powerful women joined creative forces to make something unique! In the words of Debs Armstrong, art decor director, “I’m not interested in going to any imitator festivals at all. Undeniably. It’s taking the whole thing up another bar.”

Shapes Festival in Zakynthos
To round off the August party, we have Shapes Festival in Zakynthos!
For Shapes Festival, what they want is “to bring people to stunning and unusual destinations.” This year, they’re doing it in Greek, specifically the beautiful coast of Zakynthos! In the words of the organizers, “For the Greek edition, it will be everything you can expect from a small paradise island in the Mediterranean. Crystal clear water, blissful sunshine, stunning beaches, secluded coves and lots of feta cheese!
Quick history lesson: Zakynthos was actually inhabited all the way from the Neolithic Age! Poet and writer Homor spoke about it during the Illiad and the Odyssey, some of the lands first inhabitants being the son of King Dardanos, Zakynthos of Troy, and their men! How cool!
Besides its location, Shapes Festival is the perfect way to end the summer, because you’ll be partying with Kevin Yost, Mr. Raoul K, Lefto, Nickodemus, Aroop Roy, Nikos Diamantopoulos, Massimo Voci, and so many other underground artists you don’t want to miss from night and day!
