People from all over the world attend each year and many of the most important artists in history have performed on its stages.

2. Coachella
Where: California, USA

Coachella is one of the largest music festivals in the United States, but also in the world. People meet in the Coachella Valley located in the desert of California. Coachella always sells its total capacity for the weekend. This festival has brought hundreds of artists like Guns N ‘Roses, LCD Soundsystem and Calvin Harris, Ice Cube, Zedd, A $ AP Rocky, Sia, Major Lazer and many more. Another of its great attractions is that many celebrities such as models, actors, singers, influencers… attend Coachella, so people from all over the world go to the festival to try to meet their favorite idols.

3. Lollapalooza
Where: Chicago, USA

Lollapalooza is an annual music festival that hosts popular bands of alternative rock, heavy metal, punk rock, hip hop and electronic music. Dance and comedy performances are also carried out. A weekend-long festival held in Grant Park in Chicago. Jane’s Addiction’s lead singer, Perry Farrell, created this festival in 1991. In 2011 the festival started to be held in several countries outside the US including Chile, Brazil, Argentina and Germany. However the original essence of the festival still remains in Chicago.

4. Reading and Leeds Festival
Where: Reading and Leeds, United Kingdom

The events take place simultaneously on Friday, Saturday and Sunday of the August bank holiday weekend. Reading Festival, the oldest of the two, began in 1989.

5. Primavera Sound
Where: Barcelona, ​​Spain

One of the most important music festivals in Spain, it embraces any style or genre, although it seeks quality and offers essentially pop, rock and the more underground tendencies of electronic music and dance. In each edition, the festival has been increasing the attendance of the public and the media impact of the press, radio and television, both nationally and internationally.

6. Fuji Rock
Where: Yuzawa, Niigata Prefecture, Japan

Fuji Rock is the largest outdoor music event in Japan and one of the largest and most recognized music festivals in Asia and the world.

Today it has a medieval area in which one can recreate Viking battles and try dishes from that era.

8. Sziget Festival
Where: Budapest, Hungary

One of the largest music and cultural festivals in Europe, held annually in August. Each year more than 1,000 performances are held, it has grown from being relatively unfrequented to one of the most important European rock festivals.

How to stay connected during MWC 2018


Once again the world’s most important and largest gathering for the mobile industry is here. This year the Mobile World Congress will take place from the 26th of February to the 1st of March in the city of Barcelona.

Once again the world’s most important and largest gathering for the mobile industry is here. This year the Mobile World Congress will take place from the 26th of February to the 1st of March in the city of Barcelona.

Visitors attending the MWC 2018 will need to be connected 24/7. In the city of Barcelona you can find several choices for wifi connection:

– Barcelona Public Wifi: There is a free citywide WIFI system that functions throughout the city but it works slowly and it’s not a very secure choice. It could save your needs in a very specific moment, but as mentioned earlier, it’s a slow network, it’s public (so security is not guaranteed) and hotspots are only available in specific spots.

– Airport wifi: Barcelona will welcome you at the airport with a free and fast wifi, that usually works fine. If you need extra bandwidth there is a paid premium rate. The downside is you can only use it while you’re there at the airport.

– Touristic bus wifi: The touristic city-tour buses are a great option to get a view of the city but the wifi onboard works poorly if the bus is full and you can only connect onboard obviously.

– Hotels and rental apartments: they usually offer free wifi but performance is really poor in most of them during the first hours of the morning and during the night which is the time when most of the guests are at the hotel, and using wifi at the same time. Also can only use it while you are at the hotel, and 5 star hotels normally charge you for the wifi service.

– Bars and restaurants: they normally offer free wifi. If you don’t see any banner announcing the wifi service you can ask the waiter and they will sometimes give you the wifi password. Security is a real problem as Wifi networks don’t have any access control and sometimes they don’t have even password.

– Wifivox: If what you need is security, mobility and a fast unlimited connection your best choice is Wifivox. You can carry it around with you anywhere, connect ten devices at once and enjoy unlimited data at maximum speed. We can deliver it for free to your hotel or apartment, collect it at our stores or pick it up at the airport.

You will enjoy 10% discount on your pocket wifi rental with free delivery and return to your hotel or apartment in Barcelona. (For the exclusive benefit of the MWC 2018 attendees). Please use of the following promo code on your online booking form to take advantage of this offer: WIFIVOXMWC2018

FIB 2013 goes ahead

FIB 2013 engines are now running and ready to rock! Today starts one of the most important rock music festivals in Europe that will run through the whole weekend in the summery town of Benicàssim (Castellón). The highlights for this year’s edition are totally rock-oriented: The Arctic Monkeys, Queens of the Stone Age, The Killers, Primal Scream, Beady Eye, Kaiser Chiefs and Miles Kane among others.

This year’s edition has been quite polemic by the constant rumours of cancellation. Finally, last week, the festival organization released a statement quashing the cancellation rumours. But the truth is that Maraworld, managed by Vince Power, has been hitting financial problems. Vince Power has been forced to sell part of Maraworld to Dennis Desmond and SJM Concerts. In his own words: “The difficult economic climate, coupled with the bad year suffered by Music Festivals PLC has motivated my decision to sell a significant stake Benicàssim Festival.”

Luckily, the festival goes on and we’ve prepared a special Spotify playlist with some of the best tunes of these year’s edition. Enjoy it!
