Another page in Music Goes Further's festival catalogue, Into The Factory's location might not fall under the category of picturesque, but it gets an A-star mark from those with an admiration for industrial architecture. Stora Vika, 68km away from Stockholm, is made up of raw, grey stripped back buildings, ideal for the likes of Dax J, Steffi, DJ Nobu and Nastia. Music Goes Further says: "Since it’s isolated, with nothing to interrupt the “small world” that will be built, the possibility of creating something truly exceptional is grand."


The grounds of Houghton Hall in Norfolk welcome the likes of Ricardo Villalobos, Sonja Moonear and Seth Troxler in August as Craig Richards and Gottwood present their brand new festival Houghton. Ravers will be spending three days in an environment of rich woodland and a tranquil lake, treated to longer-than-usual DJ sets thanks to an extended licence. Venues include an abandoned warehouse and subterranean bowl and there will be plenty of art and sculptures on show.

Houghton Festival takes place from August 11 to 13
