The Ultimate Euro Festival Guide

Last night, a DJ saved your life. This morning, she (or he) is going to save your summer. While we can't do much about muddy wellies, soggy sleeping bags, or annoying ravers who insist on twerking against you, we can help you make the most of your next music festival experience. Ahead, five of our favourite music makers tell us what to pack, who to hear, and where to pitch our tent in the months ahead.
Whether you're headed to Glasto, Lovebox, or Sziget, don't so much as buy a tube of glow-in-the-dark body paint without checking with these DJs first. They've got festival recommendations, travel essentials, and playlists to get you on your feet and in the mood. Feel free to do a little celebratory boogie and start dreaming of all the sonic adventures to come.
