There's not much better than sun, sand, and sweet tunes to put the vibe through your soles, and when all three elements are combined, you've got the recipe for a festival escape to that'll offer you something different from the usual green field affairs we're all used to.
With summer fast approaching, Pulse Radio put together a definitive list of five events around the globe that'll combine your much-needed summer holiday, with the festival escape that may become the highlight of your 2017 party season.
Previously named the best festival in Northern Europe, Ostend Beach is coming back in a big way this year for its eighth edition on the sand in the sleepy Belgian town that gives the event its name. An extremely short hop from major European hubs like London, Berlin, or Amsterdam, the boutique dance event has featured acts like Sven Väth, Joris Voorn, Nicole Moudaber, and Amelie Lens – and of course event favourite Green Velvet, who will be returning for the fifth time in a row in 2017.
That with Ostend being the #1 most trending city for holiday searched on Trivago – beating out even better-known European destinations like Naples and even Paris – and you’ve got the recipe for a banging two-day party on the beach in Belgium.
