That is one of the reasons why I love summertime, we have plenty of festivals to enjoy while the sun is shinning. The Beatyard Festival seems to be one of the good ones, offering music, arts, tech, games, sports , drink, food, design & discussion.
Does it sound good? So check out the line-up and the details of all the attractions:

You love dancing and all you need this weekend to forget about the world is some good music to dance all day and night long? Well, I have a suggestion for you, Lumo is having the tenth edition of their all-day summer party.

The Yacht-and Summer-themed  dancing party will start at 2pm at a “Secret Outdoor Location” by the water, somewhere near city centre, with Lumo DJs, DJ Sally Cinnamon,  Arveene & Misk and PHARE.

From 8pm you will have the option to keep good vibes going with Mix & Fairbanks in Tengu’s smoking area. There, you will have access to a food menu, which means you can feed your body and then get ready to keep feeding your soul with music and fun for the rest of the night.

Saturday (30.07) – from 2pm

Tickets: €15 for both day and night or €10 for just the day / €8 for the night.

It looks like dancing Zumba is the thing of the moment! I particularly think that the combination of workout with dance is just perfect. If you, like me, are curious about the dance and would like to give it a try, maybe you should attend the Zumba Blowout Party this Friday. The idea of the event is to get instructors together to finish the summer classes with a big party.
