Tramlines - 24th-26th July Located in the heart of Sheffield and based in the city’s top venues including the Sheffield Cathedral, this weekend long event offers the fun and frolics of a festival without the need to camp. At £30 for a full weekend ticket, Tramlines hosts some of the world’s top artists and still manages to be affordable. This year acts include Wu Tang Clan, Basement Jaxx, The Charlatans and many more.

Træna Festival – 9th – 11th July Maybe a little too ‘out there’ for many, based in Norway the annual festival is on a little island surrounded by shining waters and swooping sea eagles. All 500 residents of Træna, one of the smallest municipalities in Norway, take part in the event which has a programme of cutting edge music. With electro-pop from Emilie Nicolas and performances from South African rap-rave group Die Antwoord this is the perfect event to explore remote landscapes and experience one of the best events available for £110 - on a lump of rock at the edge of the Arctic circle. Travel options: Træna can only be reached by boat. Whether it is from Sandnessjøen, Nesna and Stokkvågen - experience the sea and arctic circle like never before on your journey to one of the most remote and unique festivals in the world.
