Glastonbury may be over (we still have the tan lines to prove it), Hyde Park has packed away its Wireless stages, and Jay-Zs iconic set on the Isle of Wight is just a distant memory, but there are still plenty more where those came from. From London to Croatia, via Hereford, Spain and more, there are lots of great festivals around the world to occupy the long, humid summer months.
Whether youre after a relaxing beach break with music to boot, laid-back lake scenery with eclectic culture on offer, or fancy-dress frivolity with 30,000 other revellers, there is something to suit all your festival needs. So take your finest tea dress, trilby and gladiator sandals and read ELLEs festival guide to decide which one is for you
