Driven by geography, culture and so much more, countries around the world host an amazing diversity of festivals, some to celebrate, some to remember, and some, … just because! Everfest publishes FEST300, a list of the 300 best upcoming festivals. Here are some fun facts pulled from FEST300:

  • Of the 170 festivals coming up 2018, Everfest rated 26 as 5 star, the highest rating, while the majority—111 festivals—received a 4.5, and only one festival—the Maha Shivaratri in Nepal—earned a 3.  Another five festivals were included in FEST300 but have a zero rating because site visitors have not yet provided assessments for those festivals.
  • In 2018, the US will host 51 of the FEST300 festivals, more than any other country. The US is also the only country to have three host cities make the FEST300: Chicago, Miami, and New Orleans.
  • A burst of festivals were launched in the early 1990s and remain on the FEST300 today, with more than 40 festivals dating to 1991.
  • Of the 12 types of festivals in the ranking, music festivals make up a disproportionate share. Even the newest festival on the FEST300 is a music festival: the Okeechobee Music & Arts Festival. Debuting in 2016, it is “the largest music festival in Florida, with a freewheeling lineup encompassing superstars and up-and-comers.”
  • First celebrated in 1412, the oldest festival on the FEST300 is the Inti Raymi, “a nine-day winter solstice celebration worshiping an Incan god and involves colorful costumes, lavish banquets, festive music, and historical recreations.”

Worldwide Box Office: Respect is Earned, Not Given

I understand. You found paradise in films, you had a good trade, you made a good living. The police protected you and there were courts of law. You didn't need a friend like me. But, now you come to me, and you say: 'Don Corleone, give me a good film.' But you don't ask with respect. You don't offer friendship. You don't even think to call me Godfather. Instead, you come into my house on the day my daughter is to be married, and you ask me what is the most ranked movie. - The Godfather   One way to discover great movies and brush up on your movie trivia is through browsing the Internet Movie Database - better known as IMDb - which is one...

Семья, работа, друзья, отдых, религия и политика - что люди в разных странах ценят больше?

В 2010-2014 годах Венский Институт Сравнительных Социальных Исследований провел изучение жизненных ценностей населения мира в шестой раз.
