We've been seriously pushing US and UK music festivals this year but, it has to be said, there's nowhere quite like Europe.

The continent is home to some of the most unique music events in the world and, looking at what's on offer this year, it seems that the festival season is the best time to experience cultural diversity to the nth degree. Whether its sun or snow you're after, rock or dance music, indoor or outdoor, Europe has it all and with the summer quickly approaching, it's time to get on a plane and take the best vacation of your lives as we guide you to the most exciting countries you can hope to visit this year.

The best of BelgiumBelgium
- Pukkelpop (August 14th - 16th): This Belgian weekend remains seriously cool having first began in 1985 and always playing host to some of the world's best alternative music with early performers including Ramones, The Jesus And Mary Chain and Iggy Pop. Nearly 30 years on, Pukkelpop maintains its excellence with 2014 seeing the likes of Clean Bandit, Gogol Bordello and Die Antwoord on the bill.
- Tomorrowland (July 18th - 20th and July 25th - 27th): If you want to feel like you've entered a fantasy world for a weekend (or two), Tomorrowland is definitely for you. Taking place in the town of Boom, you'll be rocking out against a backdrop of incredible art installations of gargantuan proportions - it really isn't a sight to be missed.

Off Festival, Katowice, Poland , 2nd-5th August 2012 Preview


When compared to the overpriced, under-whelming line-ups filling the UK festival circuit, the offerings across mainland Europe can be rather sobering. One festival that is rapidly gaining a reputation as one of the best weekends away in terms of both value and quality is Katowice, Poland's Off Festival. Set in the city in which the talent of the greatest composer of modern times, Henryk Gorecki, blossomed, the festival is now celebrating its seventh anniversary. 2012's edition was originally offered at a scandalous price of around £25, meaning that the sneaky early-bird flights (from London), accommodation and a weekend ticket would cost less than the entry fee for Leeds Festival. As it stands, there is still little difference.
