20 festivals you’ll want to travel abroad for this year

You feel that? That peculiar sensation all over your skin? That’s called ‘warmth’, and means we’ve finally busted out of winter and are heading face-first into a summer filled with days under the sun, afternoons in pub gardens, evenings spent in parks and road trips to the beach.

And then there are the festivals. Oh boy, the festivals.

By now, you may have made up your mind about which festivals you and your tent-dwelling pals will be hitting this year. At least, you think you’ve made up your mind. We’re here to throw a big and beautiful spanner in the works, because away from the mud, portaloos and £18 ciders of UK festies, there lies a smorgasbord of epic partying abroad. We’re talking huge city festivals in LA. We’re talking drum’n’bass in a crumbling old Serbian fortress. We’re talking utterly stunning European mountain scenery for you to lose your mind in.

All that stands between you and these 20 incredible overseas festivals is remembering to pack your passport…
