Ticketverkoop voor de Festileaks Festivalvakantie gestart: Ga mee op een onvergetelijke busreis naar twee bucketlist-festivals in Oost-Europa! »

András Melles

I am a concert and festival enthusiast from Hungary, living in the United Kingdom studying History and International Relations. I've been to various festivals in Europe, and my optimal number of festivals I need to visit a year is 3, but we all know that the more the merrier! My favourite genres are rock and metal, but I am open to all different kinds of music. Favourite bands? Name the sub-genre and I tell you my choice! 😉
