Last week of July means we are up to our neck into festival season, and to prove it there's no festival shortage anywhere in the U.S. or Europe this weekend, nor any way for me to keep this post short. Check out some of our favorite picks below.

Amsterdam's Dekmantel Festival kicks off tonight at Muziekgebouw aan ‘t IJ with Autechre (live) and Manuel Gottsching performing a live version of 'E2-E4', followed by expanded day and night performances throughout the weekend with two new venues added from last year.
Krake Festival returns to Berlin Monday for six packed days of leftfield techno and experimental sounds featuring cut­ting edge acts like Untold, Cassegrain & Tin Man, Eomac, and Bin­tus.
Over in Brooklyn, Full Moon Fest takes place all Saturday at the Brooklyn Mirage with Wolf+Lamb and the whole Crew Love family, plus international acts like Tensnake, Yelle, Rufus du Sol and Kite String Tangle.
Charivari Detroit Festival is a two day free festival taking place during the day Saturday and Sunday in Belle Isle State Park featuring a big lineup of the best in Detroit based acts like Moodyman, Detroit Techno Militia, Eddie Fowlkes, Theo Parrish, while the after party action is taken care of by three days of pre- and afterparties at The Works.

US grime label Slit Jockey Records is celebrating their 10th anniversary this year with a '10 Years Of Grime' mini tour with stops in Brooklyn, Providence and Philadelphia and acts Spooky, Starky, Dev 79, and El Carnicero.

It's a big weekend in XLR8R hq Los Angeles with highlights including tonights IHEARTCOMIX party featuring Kastle, Plastician, Swindle, Patrick Brian, and Swelta. On Friday night, Lot 613's Prototype series will see Howling, Ame (live), plus local support from Droog and Plastic Love, while at a nearby secret location JACK promises to go off with Dj Three and resident selectors Jeniluv and MD. Sunblock returns to the Standard rooftop in dtla on Saturday afternoon with Dam-Funk, and later that night The Black Lodge will showcase Underground Resistance artist Nomadico (aka Dj Dex) who is celebrating his latest release on his new imprint Yaxteq, plus surprise guest L.I.E.S. artist WV (White Visitation).
