The new era of festivals  

Usually when people hear the word “festival” they imagine famous bands and singers surrounded by huge crowds of people. If we go a little bit more precise, it is most likely happening in some big field. However, nowadays the concept of festivals has changed a lot and sometimes they do not even involve music. The diversity of events is something that people can be proud of because there is something for everyone.

For the adventurous people

There was a huge poker festival in Estonia this summer. Poker and festival are words that people rarely see together in one sentence, but it was actually a big success! It took place at Olympic Park Casino and Hilton Tallinn Park hotel in August. More than 20 tournaments were scheduled for this festival and players from all around the world came to compete.

Teresa Nousiaineni was the main tournament director. She said that Tallinn is actually a very popular destination for Finnish poker players and people from other Scandinavian countries. Many poker professionals booked their places as soon as they heard that this event is happening. If such games sound interesting, but you do not have time to go an actual casino and practice, you can try pay by phone casino. This is the best way to try out games which later you could play together with professionals in one of the festivals for casino games.

For the rebels

Burning Man is one of those festivals which you should attend to truly understand, according to its participants. Every year around fifty thousand people come to one of the deserts of Nevada in the United States and celebrate the freedom of expression. The main idea is to burn a big wooden statue. Sounds simple, but it is the symbol of experiments, inclusion, radical expression. Thousands of people go to Burning Man because they are tired of their routines and want to feel free again.
