Bargain! A quarter of UK festival prices and no scrimping on the bill – all the big names are there. Plus, INMusic is set across three islands in the middle of Lake Jarun in Zagreb – one island for the festival, two for camping – so it’s like an island holiday, a city break and a mother-fluffing rock’n’roll monsterfest all in one.

This can’t be legal. Well stop it immediately then.

I mean the festival. Ah, such are the joys of Eurofests – it’s often cheaper to fly to some exotic locale and swan about a foreign capital for a week to catch the biggest names on the circuit rather than watching them while sinking into a sodden hillside in Staffordshire.

Looks a bit arthouse, this one. The lakeside site has the feel of a cosmopolitan Latitude or Secret Garden Party, but you know, on holiday.
