And it’s the third year in a row that Indie Voyager is preparing the list of festivals and events the alternative community in Europe might find inspiring. Last year we went to the Moon, this one – we’re gonna take it slowly… And discover the new horizons of the inner self.
With that in mind, and given the fact that Indie Voyager is an alternative travel and art community-oriented online magazine, this year’s list won’t include bigger festivals that you saw in earlier years.
It’s time only to support dozens of small stories from across our continent in their efforts to organize these amazing festivals and events, these gatherings of love, unity and change.
The list will get longer as soon as a few more festivals announce their dates for 2020, or small new ones contact us. We are here for you!
