(Reuters) - Every year there are more festivals around Europe offering a range of music and activities, from tango to indie rock to folk with a Celtic flavor, and much more. Here are a selection highlighted by Reuters journalists.

IN Music

Zagreb, Croatia, June 23-25

The only major festival in the Croatian capital, on the shores of the Jarun lake, IN Music caters for all tastes with an eclectic mix of global and local stars. Headliners include The Black Keys, currently the hottest blues-rock attraction from the States, and 1980s alt-rock stars Pixies, as well as a host of local stars. The festival will have its own campsite, ideal for visitors on a budget. Others may seek out some of the modern hostels in the city or hotels. Tickets are available from official vendors all over Europe. Zagreb is very accessible, with a host of flights from most European capitals and it also has good road, train and bus connections to most of Europe.
