This isn't a festival for a fan of dark nights as the sun doesn't set for the whole 96 hours during the festival - so best gear up for midnight pool parties and invest in a decent eye mask. This summer welcomes the sounds of The Sugarhill Gang, Pussy Riot, Patti Smith, Black Eyed Peas and Martin Garrix among many others to a fully carbon-neutral site. The organisers really make use of Iceland's natural landscape to keep one of the most jaw-dropping festivals getting better and better. Outlook Festival, Croatia

Back for a final year at Fort Punta Christo, which has been the festival's home for the last ten years, is Outlook Festival. Boasting a mahoosive line-up including Shy FX, Andy C, Loyle Carner, Gentleman's Dub Club and London hotshot Flohio, alongside boat parties and DJ mix classes, this is set to be one big farewell bonanza. The festival organisers recommend flying to either Pula (only 20 mins from the festival site) or Venice Marco Polo which is usually home to the best deals and gives you the option of extending your time in Europe with a visit to Italy's crowning glory.

Sea Dance is an extension of the EXIT family, this time bringing sun, sea and dance music to the Adriatic Coast in Montenegro. Bottling some of the magic from EXIT's dance stages, Sea Dance transports its punters to the gorgeous golden beach of Budva where relaxation and fun are guaranteed. Recently listed by Skyscanner as the number one cheap holiday destination, Montenegro is the ultimate summer getaway that won't break the bank and boasts beautiful landscapes for biking, hiking and watersports. By night, enjoy dancing under the moonlight to spins from David Guetta, Robin Schulz and many more DJs to be announced soon.
