Edinburgh Hogmanay, Scotland. December 30 – January 1 annually.
European Festivals are not as dull as they may sound! Italy’s Venice Carnival, for example, is one of the most colourful events in Europe, set in an exquisite location and with little chance of robbery on your person. Or there’s the mad Edinburgh Festival, one of many world-beating summer festivals that will knock your dull brown socks off.
If you want to ensure easy communication and organised facilities then UK festivals are plentiful and increasingly interesting, though the weather is unreliable and getting concert tickets requires forward planning or a big wad.
