From the breathtaking Rhodope Mountains in Bulgaria to the stunning coast of Dhërmi in Albania, music festivals are as much about the location these days as they are the DJs and bands that provide the soundtrack. There is something so magical about festivals that immerse you in nature and transform otherwise sleepy towns into party paradises.

Journeying to remote locations isn’t the easy option, but it’s almost always the most rewarding. Nothing quite beats waking up to luscious green fields and dancing the day away in fairytale forests. There are so many incredible festivals that take place in all corners of the world, each with its own unique selling point, line up and the environment - the hardest bit is choosing which ones to attend.
