Do you want to make this summer the very best? You know it can not be done without atleast one music festival (or why not more).
The summer tours of Coretours has been sold out very fast this year, and as for now we only have three tours available.

 

WiSH Outdoor Festival

For the crazy price of 1795 SEK you’ll get to be a part of the 10th anniversay of WiSH Outdoor.
Included in this price, Coretours offers you a three day VIP entrance ticket, roundtrip back and forth from several pickup spots, tent to borrow and a lot more.

Wish Outdoor Festival is a festival in the Netherlands with a lot of mixed music genres within. It is often called ”mini-Tomorrowland”, and we understand why. It is a light, colorful festival with lot of focus on the stages, decorations and details. The festival has several different, very well decorated stages. Did you know that WiSH Outdoor won the price for the best decoration 2014? Take a look at our photo album and the official aftermovie of last year and you’ll see why. This year it is their 10th anniversary and we have no doubt the organizers will put their all in to this celebration!

Dominator festival

It is the biggest outdoor hardcore festival – and we would even say it is the best aswell. This is a day festival with its focus on the hardcore genres, but it is recommended for anyone who loved HDM. Have you seen the pictures from the previous years? Beach, sun and hardcore – what could be better?

Are your passionate about the harder music styles and do you like outdoor events? Then Dominator festival is without doubt a festival you need to experience. Try the magic of hardcore – you most definitely won’t regret it! Dominator is the number one hardocore festival of the summer, often said to be the most well-known hardcore party there is. It’s being hosted by Q-dance and Art of Dance and this year it will be held on the 16th of July.

Hardbeach festival

This is the largest outdoor festival within HDM in Sweden, and it is located at one of the best beaches: Åhus beach. This is the perfect event for you who want to try the festival life but do not want to travel as far as needed for most of the other events. Show your support for the passion of the Swedish HDM and join us to Hardbeach festival.

After a very successful first edition of Hardbeach the summer of 2015 F2D proudly presents the second edition: Hardbeach – Immolation. The event will take place at Åhus Beach, one of Sweden’s finest and best-known beaches. To get the ultimate festival experience it is possible to be at Hardbeach for two whole days. Together you can be there when F2D will create the first pure hard dance music festival ever hosted in Sweden.

Like the neighbors and partners in Europe, the heart of the festival area will be the stage. The stage will be built with a focus on the theme and you will not be disappointed. On stage, you will get the chance to see local, national and international DJ’s represented in the harder styles of music. F2D are doing everything possible to create an event experience beyond the ordinary.

Inspired by international festivals will Hardbeach revolve around a specific theme that permeates the entire experience. This year’s edition will go under the theme of the Aztec kingdom.

“Immolation” is the act of sacrifice by burning an object , animal or human to satisfy God . It’s at Hardbeach you will get ready to sacrifice for the sake of your Gods – your DJ’s . In Aztec mythology , the Gods will make sure their slaves fight for them and that they sacrifice themselves and their soul for their infinite love for their God – your DJ. Failing to serve their Gods can lead to destruction. The Aztec’s responsibility is to keep their Gods satisfied. Only by great passion, rituals, songs and dance the Gods reach their full potential , and will show their gratitude by praising their subjects . Aztec ideology is divided into three worlds: Heaven, Earth and the Underworld, in which you will experience the euphoric hardstyle, rawstyle and hardcore. The Aztec world revolves around a center point, their temple of the sun. Our scene.

The primary goal with this festival is to give visitors an adventure you will never forget. By connecting an experience beyond the ordinary with audio , design, range and high quality light , they hope to open your eyes to a new world in your home environment. It is time to prepare for a two-day festival that will change the Swedish music scene the way you are used to seeing it.

Before the festival

One of the best parts: choose your festival(s)
Which would you like to attend? Can you afford more than one?
How do you want to travel: by bus tour (yes, please), by airplane or maybe drive there yourself?
See a number of festivals here:
https://coretours.se/resor/

Book your ticket in time
Plan your economy so you can afford your ticket.
The greatest festivals are usually sold out in no time and you need to be ready to book the day of the release or you’ll sit on your ass waiting a whole year for your next chance ;)

Search for information
Read through as much information regarding the tour and the event as you possibly can to not miss any details before you book.
Join Coretours Facebook event, read our newsletters and stay updated at our social media to get the most important information regarding your tour.
Make sure your passport will be valid during the festival and tour

Make sure you have a festival buffert
How much are you able to you spend? How much does the food cost? Have you planned on eating out every day? Do you want to buy merchandise?
Sometimes the machines abroad do not accept Scandinavian cards, so make sure you have some Euros in cash as well.

Buy an external charger
You’ll need it for all the awesome pictures you’re about to take and to make sure you’ll have battery all the time.
Well, it might be even better without it, but who dares to try?

What to bring? 

Do a check list of what to bring
Choose the right clothes: shoes are more important than you think.
And it is so much fun to look at inspiring festival outfits (search and you’ll see what I mean).
But still, comfortable clothes before all. You find the Coretours pack list in the newsletter.

Pack smart
Roll your clothes, don’t fold. If your clothes are rolled they take less space in your bag.
Clean out your bags. Do not bring everything in your toilet bag (makeup etc), only bring the most important stuff.
Have your clothes in different plastic bags. One for underwear, one for pants etc. They don’t get wet and you don’t need to pull out everything.
Bring one for your filthy clothes too, you sure as hell do not want to get them mixed up.

Find someone to share the packing with
If you are travelling with friends all of you do not need to bring resorb/sunsreen etc.
Is it possible to share the tent? Have a double inflatable matress instead of one each, buy alcohol together and share etc.

Buy a raincoat in quality
Totally worth the money on rainy days.

Bring your own food
Food at festivals can be expensive
– Cook pasta (do not bring salad, it could get you ill if it has been warm)
– Bread and tube-cheese
– Biscuits
– Nuts (not on to the bus, though)
– Fruits like apple (no, do not bring bananas..)
– Food for the tour down to the festival (pasta with ham, baguettes etc)
– Buy alcohol at Bordershop

Check the information one more time
Make sure you have read through all our information regarding the tour.
Take a look at the departure date and time, and if you are going by bus: the address of the pickup place.
Read what’s allowed to bring and what is not.. Be prepared.
AND FOR CHRIST’S SAKE: DO NOT FORGET YOUR PASSPORT.

Be in time
If you are travelling by bus, remember you need to fight with hundreds of other ravers to get your tent and bags in the trunk.
Do not worry, there are room for all of you, but be there in time. It takes longer than you think to get all our travellers on the bus ;)

During the tour

Have a really great time during the tour
Make some new friends! You are all there for the same reason, you have the same interest and the party will be going on hard.
You might make friends for a lifetime. Coretours is also well known for our match making tours
– you can not imagine how many of our couples that have met during the tours.
Maybe your future lover will be there?

Follow the instructions carefully
The tour leaders have done this several times, they are experienced and know what they are doing.
Follow their instructions both during the tour and when you’ve arrived to the festival.
The tents will be handed out to you when the bus has parked and then the tour leaders will show you the way to the Coretours Camp.

At the camping

Use the showers
Early mornings or late nights.
You’ll feel much better after a shower and it is way easier to make people talk to you if you don’t have a aroma of sweat, beer and junk food around you..

Keep your SPF topped up
Sorry to sound like your nan but it really is important. You’re going to most likely be in the sun all day. Wear sunscreen.
You don’t want to wake up for the second day and have your skin burnt so bad that it hurts to exist, that’s no fun.

Sleeping on the floor is hard enough, without factoring in crippling sunburn.

Never. Look. Down. The. Toilet.
Well, you’re eventually going to have to use the bathroom at a festival, that’s a given.
But do bring your own toilet paper, maybe not in to the festival area, but keep it in your tent.
And when you are using the non-water-toilets, do not look down. Never.

If you can’t live without luxury, many events offer real bathroom accomidations in VIP.
It’s expensive, but hey, there’s soap and paper towels and other first world luxuries in there.

At the festival

Don’t be too proud to rock a bum bag
It’s the best way to keep your crucial items handy and safe from pick pocketers.
Always keep it topped up with sanitiser, tissues, mints, cash and condoms (safety first, people!)

Use the apps
Most festivals have their own apps that include maps, notes on where to find free things, etc. Download them!
If you can, familiarize yourself with it before actually getting to the concert grounds. You’ll save yourself a lot of time and heartache.

No, do NOT walk to the front of the crowd
More often than not, at large festivals, people will line up in front of main stages and squat there all day.
If you’re a veteran, you probably only want to see a few of the acts.
Actually pushing your way through a crowd rarely works, but if you say “excuse me,” people will usually make room. THAT EASY!
Don’t let the size of the audience intimidate you.

Too many stages?
If two acts you want to see are playing back to back — or worse, at the same time — stay organized!
See both: half of two sets is sooooo much better than missing one and regretting it.

Earplugs
I know this seems counter-intuitive to the experience, but hear me out. This is actually really good tip.
The decibel levels are much higher than you’re used to.
Use these babies from the very first day to get some well-deserved sleep while everyone is drunkenly stumbling around all night and making inconsiderate noise.

Enjoy the festival
Most important – have a great time, be safe and make a lot of new friends!
This is what you’ll miss in the cold, dark winter (when you’re not at a indoor event, of course)
and it is here you’ll create epic memories and stories to tell your friends back home. Make the best of it!

Do not waste your time
Embrace the “right here, right now” feeling.
Put your phone in the pocket, do not take pictures all the time or watch Facebook and do not answer the work related phone calls.
Be there.

Last but not least..
Start to plan the next event already on the way home and the Post Rave Syndrome won’t be such a pain.
