Perhaps unsurprisingly, some of the best music festivals in Turkey take place in its happening capital, Istanbul. There's something to suit all musical tastes and energy levels – from the hipster favourite One Love festival (previous headliners include the Chemical Brothers and Groove Armada) to the chilled-out Istanbul Jazz Festival, that brings not only jazz but low-key folk, electro and more to the city. Turkish tradition is not forgotten, either – you'll find homegrown talent galore represented on the country's stages. Read on for Time Out's guide to Turkey's top festivals...
