Get ready for full trains and people heading to Piešťany (Trnava Region) for the weekend. The local airport will welcome music lovers between August 9 and 11 at the traditional summer Grape Festival.

Visitors to the festival, which celebrates its 10th birthday this year, can look forward to concerts by Rudimental live, The Kooks, Dub FX and CHVRCHES. Slovak headliners include Billy Barman, Para, Korben Dallas and Bad Karma Boy.

The organisers recommend visitors follow a certain dress code i.e. waterproof clothes. They should bring wellingtons, raincoats, neoprene, Gore-Tex, but also swimwear, T-shirts, AC (flash) DC, and wet look in their hair. However, the weather should be hot and sunny during the weekend, as the forecast suggests.

While waiting for the festival to get underway, check out the gallery from last year.
