Lord of the Dance – Dangerous Games – June 22 @ Arenele Romane

The show is produced by famous choreographer and director Michael Flatley, with music by composer Gerard Fahyho. It premiered in 2014 at London Palladium, followed by a worldwide tour.
VegFest may be a vegan’s paradise, but you don’t necessarily have to be vegan in order to enjoy it – you’ll find delicious and healthy food, a vegan market, music, workshops and conferences, for adults and children. It is the place to be for anyone who’s interested in having a lower carbon footprint, as well as issues like sustainability, recycling, eco-friendly behaviour, and animal welfare.
If you like Turkish culture, you’ll have the opportunity to experience it with all its traditional elements like the fanfare or whirling dervish dancers, delicious foods and drinks and all kinds of Turkish crafts and customs.
TIFF Unlimited – June 21-23 @ Verde Stop Arena
Share some good music and TIFF films with your friends under the moonlight! Every night this weekend, at Verde Stop Arena, music starts at 8 pm, with bands like The Mono Jacks, Robin and The Backstabbers, Dimitri’s Bats and Byron, and from 10 pm onwards there will be two screenings of TIFF 2019 films.
