As you will soon see, the UK is the place to be this August! With the London 2012 Olympics, Reading & Leeds Festivals (replacing Glastonbury at the top of the UK festival chart) and Notting Hill Carnival, which is the largest celebration of its kind in Europe. Also hot on events this August is Scotland, or more specifically Edinburgh. With the Festival Fringe and International Festival, buy a kilt and head on down to Edinburgh!
Although, if you want to go to a festival with guaranteed sun (none in the UK), then head on over to Larnaca, Cyprus for SummerLand Festival 2012 where you can party on the beach for 2 full days.
Fancy something a bit more relaxed? Chill out in the moonlight at Boston’s Moonlight Festival, a Chinese celebration that people all over the world come to see year after year. Another option is going to Sicily, Italy for the Catania Tango Festival, where you can simply bask in the location and ambience of the town, or tango the night away. Alternatively wildly throw tomatoes at the La Tomatina Festival in Buñol, Spain. The choice is yours!
