The festival industry has come on so far so quickly in recent years. A muddy field and one stage is no longer enough. We punters want more.

And now we have it from a range of events in spectacular locations with killer soundtracks and nice, in the know crowds.

To that end we have looked at some of the best destination festivals in the world and rounded them up here.
