Firstly what makes this festival instantly cool is the fact that it is located in a huge fortress and unlike most British festivals it has 4 days of music. This festival takes place in the former soviet satellite state of Serbia, which has been running now for 8 years. The line-ups have always been known for being really varied, with music from rock, metal, pop and dance all combined to make one huge festival. Also alcohol is stupidly cheap with a pint of beer costing you like 20p.

The festival has full weekend camping which means you can camp for 7 days, which also includes entry to each day for the music. This festival will cost you £85 for the whole weekend and camping, which is a bargain; this also includes free coaches that are put on by the festival which run to the nearest airport of Belgrade. Flights will cost you about another £85 return as well, costing you a grand total of £170 for the whole festival experience, which is totally worth it.
