    Cauterets, France – Garosnow: This ski/music event 29 thru 31 March is in the Pyrénés, not the Alps.

    SHIFT, 29 & 30 August in Turku, Finland – Two things jump out at us here. First, who said there are no conferences in August?

    This is the second year for Instytut Festival and we don’t know that much about it. But the concept is cool – a techno party at a humongous 19th-century fortress (check out the vid above) 50 kilometers outside Warsaw, and overlooking the confluence of two rivers. What’s not to like?

    Now, throw in top acts such…>

    As much as we love EDM, this is a yearly (and welcome) break from all the dubstep and deep trance. Acoustic music in the Alpes. Sort of like a contemporary “The Sound of Music,.”

    This year, Zermatt Unplugged has Michael Kiwanuka, and oh yeah, we’re promoting him as a personal favorite. There’s also Boy George…>
