This Danish powerhouse has been chugging along since 1971 and now stands tall as the largest north European music and culture festival on the circuit. Put simply, it's a huge, week-long beast. Despite the size, it's a surprisingly slick operation and as you'd expect, the line-up covers pretty much anything and everything – from global pop stars to underground dance dons – across an impressive eight stages.
