The Oxegen mega-fest may be sold-out (and you’re probably not going to be buying tickets for Lenny Kravitz), but it’s not too late to take in a mid-July festival and have a bit of a holiday abroad while you’re at it.

EXIT will be in full swing at the Petrovaradin fortress in Novi Sad, Serbia, from July 10th to 13th, with appearances from N*E*R*D, Sex Pistols, Paul Weller, Gossip, Afrika Bambaataa and hundreds more.

Those who want to go Italian should check out Italia Wave, happening this year in Livorno in Tuscany from July 16th to 19th. Acts digging into the fine backstage catering will include Gnarls Barkley, The Verve, The Ting Tings (video below for the still awesome “That’s Not My Name” from the band first plugged by the mighty Una Rocks a full year ago), The Chemical Brothers and many more. The cost? A mere €40 for a weekend pass.
