When you're backpacking in Europe, it's almost foolish not to experience one of the region's many electronic dance music festivals. The genre's overseas roots are deep and rich, celebrated at Tomorrowland, Creamfields, Balaton Sound and more—the list is endless.

And while it can be tough to choose which events to attend, what's even more difficult is finding affordable, comfortable, quality lodging along the way. That's where St Christopher's comes in.
