There’s no denying that Aussies love a banging music festival and we have a few rippers to choose from when summer rolls around – but what about all those alluring lineup announcements from festivals beyond our shores? That’s where Sweat Tours comes in, a boutique travel provider with a hankering for killer live music has just launched, offering three unique international festival experiences over the next few months, including an already sold out Ultra Music Festival tour to Miami in March, Governors Ball New York City in May, and Electric Daisy Carnival in Las Vegas in June.
With accommodation, private transfers, meals, drinks, VIP experiences, sightseeing led by local tour guides and much more included in each carefully tailored package, Sweat have gone above and beyond to curate a once-in-a-lifetime experience for their thrillseekers punters. Each tour is meticulously customised to showcase the best of each city, while attending the hottest festivals around the globe in serious style.
Founder and director of Sweat Tours, Eli Akerlund, is thrilled to launch the project, “Sweat Tours was created because I have an intense passion for live music and travel – however, the majority of tour companies in the market today place a heavy emphasis on sightseeing, which means most of the time spent on the tour is in transit. They have never particularly interested me!”
Aside from offering guaranteed good times with fellow music and travel lovers, each Sweat tour available in 2017 offers a varied, unique adventure for music lovers.
First up is Ultra Music Festival and it’s already sold out! This bad boy celebrates warm weather, the beach, and the Latin influences that permeate the sun-soaked city. This unbelievable adventure includes private yacht parties, a stunning South Beach Hotel (just a stones-throw away from Spring Break beach parties and lush clubs), and even an overnight stay in the Bahamas.
The tour to Governors Ball has been tailored to appeal to the hipsters and hip-hop, rap and rock lovers, and celebrates the one and only New York City! Although there is traditional sightseeing in this tour, participants will be introduced to the underground scene that the NYC boroughs are hiding.
The last tour features Electric Daisy Carnival (EDC) in Las Vegas, and features pimped hotel suites, day and night VIP parties, champagne breakfasts, and the unparalleled production value seen at EDC. Akerlund is proud to present the 2017 tours, as she believes, “Festivals provide the perfect platform for the gathering of music lovers - so combine this with travel, summer weather, new experiences and new friends and you have a recipe for literally the best time of your life! To say that I am excited about Sweat Tours and 2017 would be an understatement!”
