Festival Abroad -

As wonderful as the choice on offer at UK Festivals is, there’s something magical about heading abroad for your fun. And it’s not just down to the great weather on offer; foreign festivals are some of the best run and globally renowned shindigs on the planet.

European Festivals boast a plethora of choices, such as the joy of Spanish soirees Sonar and Benicassim (watch a snippet of the former above), Dutch delight Dekmantel, Norwegian paradise Oya Festival, Serbian powerhouse Exit and many, many more (we rounded up some more of the best in our top five festivals abroad). Whether you’re after a spellbinding rave experience like Timewarp or wanting to mosh at the rock extravaganza Roskilde, heading off abroad is one of the best ways to experiance a full festival vibe

Essential advice before heading abroad

Heading abroad is an activity littered with a handful of pitfalls alongside the monumental highs, but avoiding (or at the least managing them) is easy enough with a bit of planning. From basic steps like turning international roaming off your mobile phone up to making sure your visas allow you into the country and your passport is still in date, there’s plenty of ways to end up red faced abroad other than overexposure to the sun

  • Making sure you get travel insurance
  • Get a European Health Insurance Card - this means you’ll be accepted to any state hospital within the EU, something which is much more important than a luxury.
  • Check your passport has a minimum of six months validity on the return date - no one wants to have to get consulate assistance to return home after a wild few days partying.
