From dubstep to death metal and from Poland to Holland, we look back at our critic's favourite overseas festivals from this summer - and you can vote for yours in the UK Festival Awards too.
After their nine-year hiatus, Britpop headliners Pulp proved that they've still got it with an energetic finale worthy of the epic setting of Germany's Melt! Festival 2011.
These New Puritans took to the stage early on in the evening, the perfect understated interlude to a wild Saturday night on the outskirts of Berlin.
This year Melt chose to team up with the Green Music Initiative, an organization that is dedicated to providing eco friendly power alternatives for music events, Celeste Adamson reports.
Melt! Festival has sold out in record time, say organisers.
Chase And Status, Noah & The Whale, Jose Gonzalez and Patrick Wolf lead the new names for Melt! Festival 2011.
Beady Eye are among a host of new names confirmed to play Germany's Melt! Festival 2011 today (15 March).
