Once again - April, from the 9th to 13th, around Charleston, South Carolina. The Dig South “is the Southeast’s interactive festival celebrating innovation and the digital economy” – both music and technology innovation. Two days will be dedicated to a conference featuring really interesting speakers, but the theme of the whole event formulated by the administration is:

Porc Fest or generally the Porcupine Freedom Festival is less about music, but more about liberty and union of people. Camping and discussions to make new friends are a priority task of every participant. The nature is going to be definitely friendly by 22nd -29th of June at Northern New Hampshire.

International Startup Festival
If the socializing aspect attracts You more, but the Porc Fest is not enough, we advise to consider the International Startup Festival in Montreal, Canada. The event is rather young, is organized since 2001, but attracts thousands of people every year. The date is not chosen, but it will be definitely in summer. Description of the event days:
“Startupfest offers a unique blend of deep content, inspiring stories, unbeatable networking, and unmistakable festival vibe.”
