All events offer a number of different side events as well as activities outside of the poker room.

You can also qualify for PokerStars Festival events on PokerStars with a wide range of satellites running 24/7 on the site.

The festival train will actually head to Chile next for a series in Vina del Mar that will run from May 20-27, 2017.

The Main Event at Vina del Mar, which runs May 23-27, will feature an impressive $500,000-GTD prize pool.

In March the Czech Republic's Petr Svoboda outlasted all 1,123 entries in the PokerStars Festival Rozvadov to take down $124,346.

Can’t Afford Festivals? Megastack to the Rescue

Of course PokerStars also has an option for players who don’t necessary have the bankroll for Festival events.

PokerStars recently expanded its Megastack series with stops all over Europe including Ireland, Belgium, France, Germany and more.

Megastack events offer a deep-stack style tournament for a cut-rate €170 buy-in.

The Megastack series serves as a starting point for anyone looking to get started with PokerStars Live. From there players can graduate to PokerStars Festival and even the more prestigious PokerStars Championship.

Qualifiers for all three tours are currently running on PokerStars. You can learn more or sign up for an account through our PokerStars review.
