Not only that, the freshest new talent and undiscovered gems are often found at festivals, especially in the States – that’s the best bit about them. So hop across the pond, put your dancing shoes on and keep your ears out for the next big thing in music!
Let’s get stuck into some of the AWESOME festivals the USA has to offer…
The music scene in London just keeps better! The capital is heaving with so many exciting young artists, KYKO included. South London-born and raised Verrill, a multi-instrumentalist with a feverish passion for experimenting, has been crafting noise since reaching his teens. Raised in a household rife with the sounds of Paul Simon and British bands like The Jam, Verrill strives to combine his musical background with his passion for modern pop music and it’s ever-evolving form.
When we first heard KYKO’s music we loved his sound so much that we invited him to play at the STA Travel Sounds stage at this years Bestival festival.
It’s close to midnight and something evil’s lurking in the dark…
It’s our Halloween hang-out blog! Hopefully you aren’t spending Halloween in one of these spooky locations; with vampires lurking in the dark, ghosts of bloody Japanese soldiers and possessed toy dolls these are some of the most haunted hot-spots in the world. So to get you in the mood for this year’s festivities, just imagine spending the night in one of these places…
At STA Travel, we help millions of young travellers explore the world each year. Yet every day in the UK, around seven young people aged between 13 and 24 are diagnosed with cancer.
These young people are friends, family and colleagues of the STA Travel community, who require expert treatment and support from the moment they hear the word cancer.
In 2015, STA Travel formed a partnership with Teenage Cancer Trust and other charities around the world to help spread awareness and raise vital funds. Our CEO John Constable said: “There are specific challenges that come with having cancer when you are young. Normal life is suddenly turned upside down and treatment prevents you from socialising, playing sports and travelling. We want to spread the word about Teenage Cancer Trust, and their important work in bringing young people for treatment in a home-away-from-home-environment”.
