Great Events in August

From American football, via opera to dance festivals, here are some of the best events out there in August.

Haarlemmermeer

Holland’s Mysteryland is the longest-running dance festival in the world. This year’s packed lineup includes Alesso, DJ Jazzy Jeff, Mimi Love, and Willem de Ridder. Bizarre costumes are part of the fun!

Bohemian rhapsody

It’s 1830s Paris and money is tight. Throw in star-crossed lovers, starving for art, and a bad case of tuberculosis, and it can only be La bohème. This famed Franco Zeffirelli production has been performed every season since 1963 at Milan’s La Scala. This could be the year to experience a classic opera at a legendary opera house.

August 19–September 2
Piazza della Scala, Milan, Italy

Baltic beats

Originally held in Helsinki, the Weekend Festival Baltic has expanded to Estonia. You can spend three days dancing to the best beats around on the beautiful beach at Pärnu. Don’t miss Example & DJ Wire, Heavyweight and Robin Schultz.

Hail Mary

If you hear the word “football” and think of the bone-crunching American game, head over to the Washington Redskins’ training center for Fan Appreciation Day. You’ll get to see just what it takes to be an American football star as the players are put through their paces.
