"The Baltic States aren’t the first place you’d think of when planning a party, but there’s no Iron Curtain here anymore. Latvia regained its independence in 1991 and is home to Positivus, the largest music festival in the area, with 25,000 revellers on site each year. Here the most celebrated acts in the provinces share stages with internationally renowned artists. Whether you’ve come to see Macitajs on Acid or Manic Street Preachers, this is a hidden gem, and a beer is only £1.70 too!"
