The best beach music festivals to get over the Fyre Fest scam in 2019: Primavera Sound, Dimensions Festival and Epizode

Sun, sand and sound

Text: Aravin Sandran


What: Primavera Sound

Where: Barcelona, Spain

When: 30 May to 2 June

Why: No particular genre of music is off limits at this festival. Solange, Cardi B, Carly Rae Jepsen, James Blake and Tame Impala are just some of the names blowing up the line-up at Primavera Sound this year. There'll be tweenyboppers twerking to pop, indie creative-types grooving to psychedelia and gold-chained thuggish bros throwing their arms in the air to thumping hip-hop bass. The best part though, the festival takes place by the sandy beaches of Barcelona. Expect a whole lot of tasty tapas and an equally palatable olive-skinned Catalonian crowd.

 

What: Epizode

Where: Phu Quoc Island, Vietnam 

When: 27 December 2019 to 7 January 2020

Why: If a weekend of partying seems a little tame, then Epizode's 12-day rave might just hit the spot. It all happens on Vietnam's largest island, which is renowned for its picturesque natural landscapes that span sandy beaches, rustic tropical jungle and dewy mountaintops. Let's not forget the music either; some of Europe's finest underground house and techno DJs go hard every single evening. When the sun rises though, it's the serenity of the idyllic Asian locale that takes over.

 

What: Dimensions Festival

Where: Fort Punta Christo, Croatia

When: 28 August to 1 September 2019

Why: Game of Thrones fans will eat up this one. The elusive Dimensions Festival brings festival-goers back in time to a 19-century medieval fort, but this isn't going to be a history lesson. Instead, its rugged stone chambers will house the likes of Peggy Gou, Anderson .Paak and Hunee this coming season. Getting to the venue might be a little out of the way, but stomping the historic grounds of its amphitheatre and jumping into the crystalline waters of the Croatian shoreline will be unforgettable experiences that'll surely be off your bucket list.
