Every year the most spectacular dance music shows start preferably in the southern hemisphere or else in exotic regions, then welcome us to Ultra Music Festival, followed by Tomorrowland, Untold, EDC and Warehouse projects. For most people, whatever the type of these festivals are, the important thing is to get involved. But in all such events, keeping in mind, there are musical tastes that appeal to everyone.
Although we were not able to enjoy the pleasure of festival spirit due to restrictions and cancellations in the past years, some festivals never lost their glory and continued from where they left off. Here we have gathered and examined some of the most memorable scenes from 2021.
(Cluj Arena, Romania)
Untold, one of the biggest music festivals not only in Romania but also in the Balkans and Europe, has been organized regularly since 2015. The event, which was awarded Europe’s largest festival in its first year, was also labeled Romania’s representative festival the following year.
Last year, the festival, also called Chapter 6, was postponed to September due to the pandemic. There was a crowded lineup on the first night of the three-day event. Big stars like David Guetta and Martin Garrix opened the stage. On the second night, in the show called Galaxy Stage, valuable DJs such as Kalkbrenner, Kraviz and Amelie Lens took the sets. The last night was Alchemy Stage, and it catered to more local and subgenre tastes like Netsky and Wilkinson.
(Novi Sad, Serbia)
EXIT is an award-winning summer music festival that takes place at the Petrovaradin Fortress in Novi Sad, Serbia, with more than 1000 artists who play at over 40 stages and festival zones.
Celebrating its 20th anniversary, the event started as a student movement at the beginning of the second millennium. It has been held regularly at the Petrovaradin Fortress since 2001 after the Yugoslav election. The event, held in the summer of 2021, was the first event to be held on a large scale after the pandemic, leading many organizations. All imaginable star names in the world of electronic music took the stage for 4 days in this unique show.
Born in the Netherlands, The Extrema Outdoor Belgium Festival, usually called as XO , is a huge camping festival. It usually pulls in around 65,000 fans and features over 100 artists playing at multiple stages.
You can find the festival on the beautiful grounds of De Plas in Houthalen-Helchteren, Belgium. The landscape includes deep forests, a clear lake – including a beach – and enough space for 7 stages and the Aperol Spritz area.
The event, which will celebrate its 10th anniversary, was postponed last year and with a glorious comeback, they made the audience embraced the emotions they missed with popular names such as Amelie Lens, Marco Bailey and Jamie Jones.
