When: August 26 - September 4
Where: Black Rock Desert, Nevada, US
Every year, thousands of people come together for this radical festival to create Black Rock City out of art installations, only to tear it all down at the end (it’s part of its “leaving no trace” practice). If you need an introduction to Burning Man’s aesthetics, think Mad Max. This year’s theme is I, Robot, so art installations will focus on artificial intelligence.
2. Fashion month
A post shared by NYFW (@nyfw) on Jul 31, 2018 at 7:03am PDT
When: September 6 - October 2
Where: New York City, London, Milan, and Paris
Look out for upcoming spring 2019 trends on the runway, and the season’s latest looks on the streets. Even if you don’t get into the shows, you can catch the fashion crowd rush in the four key fashion week cities: New York (September 6-12), London (September 14-18), Milan (September 19-24) and Paris (September 24 - October 2). If your style is on point, you may even get stopped by a street style photographer.
3. Picasso. Blue and Rose
The Old Guitarist is an oil painting by Pablo Picasso created late 1903 – early 1904. It depicts an old, blind, haggard man with threadbare clothing weakly hunched over his guitar, playing in the streets of Barcelona, Spain. It is currently on display in the Art Institute of Chicago as part of the Helen Birch Bartlett Memorial Collection :) #PabloPicasso #TheOldGuitarist #PicassoBluePeriod #PicassoBluePeriod1903To1904 #OilPaint #Canvas #ArtInstituteofChicago #ArtMusium #InstituteofChicago #InstituteofChicagoArt #ChicagoLoop #Downtown #HappySunday #SundayAfternon #March2017 #Winter2017 #HappyWeekend #Art #WindyCity #BeautifulRich #TheArtInstituteOfChicago

When: September 18, 2018 - January 6, 2019
Where: Musee d’Orsay, 1 Rue de la Légion d’Honneur, 75007 Paris, France
Pablo Picasso’s Rose and Blue periods were some of the most important epochs in the artist’s works; their names reflect the shades with which he painted his work for a time. The exhibition, organised by Musée d’Orsay and the Musée national Picasso-Paris, brings together the artist’s best work from his twenties – these would go on to inspire and shape modern art as we know it.

When: September 22 - October 7
Where: Theresienwiese, Ludwigsvorstadt-Isarvorstadt, Munich, Germany
Where better to celebrate Oktoberfest than in the place where it all began? Every year, this square in Munich comes to life with beer tents, amusement rides and crowds to match any festival. Sample beer and local traditional food under the German sun, with the Bavaria statue and the neo-gothic St Paul’s Church nearby. If you want, do like the locals and call Oktoberfest by its nickname, “De Wiesn”.
5. Sam Smith in Singapore
A post shared by Sam Smith (@samsmithworld) on Jul 17, 2018 at 10:35pm PDT
When: October 2
Where: Singapore Indoor Stadium, 2 Stadium Walk, Singapore 397691
Allow Sam’s silken voice to penetrate deep into your soul and evoke all the feels. The singer brings his The Thrill Of It All tour to Singapore, and if the album reviews are anything to go by, the live performance promises to be quite the heart-wrencher.
6. Azzedine Alaïa: The Couturier
“He did the things my father, who I never met until I was 41, didn’t do. He took me to the dentist, took me to museums, taught me about art, taught me about food, culture. I don’t think I will ever have that again, I definitely lived a very blessed journey with Azzedine.” - @iamnaomicampbell - Photo by @arthurelgort Celebrate the timeless beauty of the female form with thirty-five years of haute couture from Azzedine Alaïa until 7 October. Follow the link in the bio to find out more. - #Alaia2018 #azzedinealaïa
A post shared by The Design Museum (@designmuseum) on Jul 11, 2018 at 4:23am PDT
When: Until October 7
Where: Design Museum, 224-238 Kensington High St, W8 6AG London, UK
Reminisce about the renowned fashion designer’s life and work in the UK’s first exhibition on him. Alaïa had been co-curating this exhibition before his death in November 2017, so trust that personal touches are not absent from the exhibition, which began at the Design Museum in May. Don’t miss it!
7. Paris Chocolate Show
Ne croyez pas que le chocolat soit un substitut à l’amour ... L’amour est un substitut au chocolat ️ #chocolate#chocolovers#chocoholic#foodie#paris#salonduchocolat#chocoaddict#pastry#patisserie#pastrychef#foodstagram#instagood#picoftheday#beautiful
A post shared by Salon du Chocolat (@salonduchocolat) on Jun 26, 2018 at 2:59am PDT
When: October 31 - November 4
Where: Pavilion 4, Paris Expo Porte de Versailles, 2 Place de la Porte de Versailles, 75015 Paris, France
The things we do for chocolate! At the Salon Du Chocolat, an annual chocolate fair and trade show, you’ll find out just how many ways chocolate can be appreciated – it obviously isn’t just for eating, if you remember the Benedict Cumberbatch chocolate structure – and leave having tasted some of the world’s best chocolates.
When: November 3-18
Where: Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia
Even if you’re already based in KL, you’re technically still travelling for Urbanscapes, as the creative arts festival itinerary will take you to multiple venues within the city, through various exhibitions, workshops and live performances, not least of which is KL Live, where 20-year-old Grammy-nominated singer Khalid will perform on November 4.
9. Strawberry Fields
⚡MEMORIES OF THE WILDLANDS ⚡ "The Golden Hour. It was the end of a perfect day. The last rays of sunlight reached like long golden fingers across the bushland, pointing us towards the Wildlands. We chased the low drum of the dance floor through the trees. As night fell we would have a whole new playground to explore and we couldn’t wait! Bursting through the scrub and into the last light we cheered as our heels kicked up the dust and it glowed amber in the setting sun, swirling around us like golden embers. In a moment of pure euphoria we came together, a motley, fun-soaked crew whose cheeks all hurt. It was doof magic and collective bliss, forever framed in a treasured snapshot taken by Duncographic." - Georgia Walters #bringontenyears
A post shared by Strawberry Fields (@strawberryfields_festival) on Aug 6, 2018 at 10:55pm PDT
When: November 16-18
Where: The Wildlands, Tocumwal, New South Wales, Australia
Strawberry Fields is celebrating its 10th anniversary this year, and the adventure is just as a good as any year. It’s three days of adventure out in the wildlands – dancing to live music, going for a swim in Murray River, checking out art installations, sampling delicious bites – with the option of glamping for the full stay-in experience.
10. Art Basel
#SheilaHicks’s large-scale installation ‘The Treaty of Chromatic Zones’, presented by @GalerieFrankElbaz in our 2015 Unlimited sector is this week’s #artbasel Instagram. Thanks for sharing, @MariaLudovica.Antichi!
A post shared by Art Basel (@artbasel) on Aug 17, 2018 at 8:01am PDT
Where: Miami Beach Convention Center, 1901 Convention Center Drive, Miami Beach, Florida 33139, US
Art Basel is one of the world’s biggest art fairs, and for good reason: it’s ground zero for curators and collectors who want the cream of the crop of the art industry, from big contemporary works to pieces from up-and-coming artists. During this time, expect Miami to be buzzing with inspiration.
11. Djakarta Warehouse Project
A post shared by Djakarta Warehouse Project (@djakartawarehouseproject) on Dec 31, 2017 at 10:12pm PST
When: December 7-9, 2018
Where: GWK Cultural Park, Bali, Indonesia
Djakarta Warehouse Project is easily one of Asia’s biggest EDM festival, and it so happens that DWP too is celebrating its 10th anniversary this year. Headliners include The Weeknd, Alesso and Armin Van Buuren. Expect the stages to be a show on their own, obviously.
Wonder kids. This is why we do what we do. Let’s leave the next generation with a better world. Live. Love. Wonder. . . . #wonderfruit2018 #LiveLoveWonder #happychildrensday #Thailand #teachthemyoung #wonderkids #kids #family #fun #familyfriendly #playground #festival #solarstage #sustainableart
A post shared by Wonderfruit (@wonderfruitfestival) on Jan 12, 2018 at 9:13pm PST
When: December 13-16, 2018
Where: The Fields, Siam Country Club Pattaya, Pong, Bang Lamung District, Chon Buri 20150, Thailand
There are lots of arts and music festival throughout the year, but Wonderfruit has plenty of family-friendly activities so the kids don’t miss out on anything. Between enjoying live music performances and jaw-dropping art installations, you can also feast, relax at wellness sessions and attend interesting workshops.
Don’t miss these:
The Lion King at Marina Bay Sands, Singapore, until September 23, 2018
MoMA at NGV: 130 Years of Modern and Contemporary Art at the National Gallery of Victoria, Melbourne, until October 7, 2018
