02-05-2006  -  Prelude to the festival season!!!

It's just a few weeks before the best time of the year starts. This year a lot of festivals revealed a great line-up which made it very hard to take a choice. We tried to make it a good mixture choosing some of our "regular" festivals as well as a few new ones. Here's our choice and our best recommendation for the summer 2006. To find out more about the festivals, click on the name and check out the official website.
Hope to see you on some of them too!!!
