Check out our list of events from art exhibitions and religious festivals to unusual and natural phenomenas which are coming up over the next few years. Start planning now to see and witness these special happenings.
ART BIENNALE, VENICE – ITALY
This event happens every two years, with the next Art Biennale scheduled from 26 May to 25 November 2018.
La Biennale di Venezia was founded in 1895 and it is now one of the world’s most famous and prestigious cultural organizations in the world. The prestigious art biennale covers art, architecture, cinema, dance, music and theatre. Set in Venice’s historic surroundings, the works contrast wonderfully with Venice’s historic surroundings. Many of the events are held in Arsenale and Giardini, inviting visitors to explore the often overlooked parts of Venice.
DOCUMENTA, KESSELL – GERMANY
This event happens every five years, with the next from 18 June to 25 September 2019.
Documenta is called the ”museum of 100 days” and is one of the world’s most important showcases of contemporary art. The event is across the town’s parks, squares, shopping malls and museums. This isn’t soft art; Documenta is particularly interesting for addressing difficult political issues, such as racism, immigration and Europe’s far-right-wing resurgence.
TOTAL SOLAR ECLIPSE – ARGENTINA
On 2 July 2019, a total solar eclipse will take place in Argentina. There are several other total solar eclipses expected worldwide in the next decade (2028 in Australia).
A total solar eclipse is when the moon temporarily blocks the sun’s light. The eclipse on 2 July 2019 will only be visible just before sunset and within a small band across Argentina above cities such as San Juan, Bragado and Junin which can be easily accessed just south of Buenos Aires. A small area of Chile around La Serena will also experience the total eclipse.
WINEMAKERS FESTIVAL, VEVEY – SWITZERLAND
This event happens only every 21 years and the next will be held from 26 July to 11 August 2019. Held in a giant outdoor theatre, the festival celebrates all things grape-related with musicians, dancers, floats and a parade. It was established in the 17th century by local winemakers and now involves over 5000 participants.
KUMBH MELA, HARIDWAR, INDIA
This is said to be the world’s largest religious gathering with up to 120 million people who will attend over six weeks. The event is especially known for its sadhus and other Hindu holy men, many are naked and smeared with ash. The people will meditate standing on their heads, whilst others will immerse themselves in the sacred Ganges.
This event happens every 12 years and it is likely to next take place from late 2021 to early 2022.
FIELD OF LIGHTS, ULURU, AUSTRALIA
This extraordinary installation from British artist Bruce Monro features 50,000 lights on short stalks, conceived to represent blooming desert flowers after rain. The lights pulse and change colour and are entrancing whether you’re walking among them, or viewing the entire spread (and Uluru in the background) from nearby dunes.
This event is on until 31 December 2020.
The good news is that there are many other cyclical events, from art exhibitions and religious festivals to unusual natural phenomena, coming up over the next few years – and a few that will soon be gone forever. So start planning now to see these forthcoming special happenings.
