"One of the best festivals in Europe... that you´ve probably never heard of."

Help increase massively the population of Træna – one of the smallest municipalities in Norway – by showing up for this annual festival on a rugged island surrounded by sparkling ocean and swooping sea eagles. All 500 citizens participate in the event, which has a programme of cutting-edge Norwegian music, including melodic electro-pop from Emilie Nicolas and rowdy beats from KUUK, whom you could safely describe as Olso’s answer to stomach-churning South African rap-rave group Die Antwoord. The festival may literally be a bit too “out there” for most UK festival goers, but it’s the perfect excuse to explore one of Europe’s most dramatic and wild environments (and be able to tell your friends about that crazy band you saw on a lump of rock at the edge of the Arctic circle).
9-11 July, £110, trena.net
