The TWINT festival guide

The festival season has already started. The next instalment will take place on 29 June with OpenAir St.Gallen. Good weather? Bad weather? Do I need sun cream or would a rain jacket actually be more appropriate? These are all important questions for festival goers. Those who turn up without the right gear usually find themselves feeling cold or are left with no choice but to throw their mud-covered Converse shoes straight in the bin after the festival.

Now, we at TWINT are anticipating a fantastic festival summer and therefore want to share a few tips for the weekends ahead to ensure that you enjoy some unforgettable experiences:
