World's Best Festivals
Wed 10th Nov, 2010 Lists and Guidesin
#6 Garden Festival – Croatia
While it always brings a solid DJ line-up, the music takes a back seat to the ‘experience’ of the whole thing. Hit it up and you’ll see pristine beaches, chilled boat journeys and balmy nights filled with fun.
#7 Ten Days Off – Belgium
An all-out orgy of electronic music, Ten Days Off in Belgium would test the stamina of even the most party-hardy. Yes, it actually goes for ten days in various cavernous rooms and small clubs around the city, and everyone's invited.
#8 Melt Festival – Germany
For location and programming, Melt Festival comes out on top. Staged at Ferropolis, an open-air museum of industrial machinery, the music literally doesn’t stop for three days. And what music it is too.
#9 Sonar – Barcelona, Spain
Still revered after all these years, Sónar makes a summer holiday to Barcelona even more enticing. As well as a day-time programme skewed towards cutting edge stuff, the city’s clubs come alive at night with tastemaker-DJs galore.
#10 Warehouse Project – Manchester, England
Less a festival and more a never-ending cycle of incredible club nights throughout the British autumn. Instead of choosing one event, we suggest you just move there and take it all in.
