This week on The Check-In, our host Daryl is joined by Sean, Holly, and Mike to discuss the best places to crack your glowsticks and have a dance from around the globe this summer. Whilst we visit some of the old stalwarts of the scene, we were keen to unearth some of the lesser-known and up-and-coming destinations to get your fix this summer. 

So, without further ado, here's the video - enjoy! And, please let us know in the comments if you've got a favourite recommendation that we missed! 

WATCH: The Best Party Destinations of 2017

What are the biggest Party Destinations of 2017? 

Magaluf, Spain

Ever reliable Magaluf isn't cooling down this summer. It's adoption of the Thai 'Full-moon parties' has breathed some fresh air into this already lively mediterranean destination so that the sun, sea and sand is accompanied by one of the best party atmospheres you can find in Europe. Our friends over at PartyHardTravel do some brilliant deals worth taking advantage of. 

San Antonio, Ibiza, Spain

Home of the legendary 'Sunset-strip' that blends the majestic beauty of the picturesque landscape with the pulse and life injected by some of the worlds most renown DJ's, the 'White-Isle' is something that will never disappoint someone seeking to have a good time. Hosting world famous super-clubs such as Amnesia, Pacha, Privaledge and Ushuaia alongside a whole host of sunset bars, cafes and boat parties ensure that whichever type of nightlife you're searching for, you won't be disappointed! 

Kavos, Corfu, Greece

Kavos is often compared to its Spanish counterparts, and whilst not quite holding the legendary status that maybe the likes of Ibiza retain, Kavos does attract the same calibre of DJ's and talent to its clubs and bars, whilst often not having the same kind of bank-breaking entry fees that you may expect. Akin to Ibiza, the town of Kavos is beautiful by day as it operates as a docile but picturesque fishing village that comes to life at sunset. 

Las Vegas, USA

Sin City is making huge strides on the international nightlife scene in recent years. It's reputation is well earned hosting the best DJ's and entertainment every night of the week in the consistant Nevada sun. Bars, clubs, pool parties, you name it, Vegas won't disappoint. 

Berlin, Germany

Whilst the German capital might not always have the weather that some of the others have, it's nightlife is nothing if not compteitive with the big players. Whilst particularly famous for it's electro/techno vibes, the intensity of some of the Berlin clubs makes them some of the most electric in the world. World famous Berghain, Sisyphos and Salon zur Wilden Renate are boundary-breaking and redefining what nightlife is like. Go in with an open mind and you'll be sure to have an unforgettable experience. 

What are the big Music Festivals this Summer?

Hideout Festival, Novalja, Croatia (26 June - 1st July 2017)

150 artists, and five days of pool parties, boat parties and beach parties on the beautiful Zrce beach paint quite a picture of expectation, and it doesn't fail to deliver. Hideout has been rapidly growing since its inception in 2010, the biggest names in techno, house and more all flock to perform in some of the biggest clubs in Europe such as Papaya, Aquarius and Kalypso. 

Ultra Live, Worldwide

Another one that can be found in Croatia, Ultra is one of the fastest growing electro festivals that this year hosts huge DJ's such as Martin Garrix and Afrojack. This worldwide tour sets up in Bali, Singapore, Brasil, Korea, South Aftrica, Japan, Buenos Aires, Chile, Mexico, Bolivia, Ibiza, Hvar, Philippines, Australia, Hong Kong, Taiwan, China, and Miami. View the destinations here.

Creamfields, Daresbury, UK (24-27th August 2017)

The Cheshire town of Daresbury, not only famed for the birthplace of 'Alice in Wonderland's Lewis Carrol, is also the home of the Creamfields Festival. Dubbed the 'Best Major Festival 2017' by the UK Festival Awards, and earning a whole raft of other acclaims over the past 13 years, Creamfields is the biggest dance event the UK has to offer. This year the set list hosts hundreds of acts including the biggest on the scene such as Hardwell, Faithless, FatBoySlim, Pendulum, Tiesto and Wilkinson. If you're living in the UK already, this could be the most convenient way to enjoy some of the worlds finist dance artists on your back door.

Tomorrowland, Boom, Belgium (21st -30th July 2017)

This double-weekend event hosts 16 stages of world-class talent in Belgium during late July. Again, keeping the likes of Eric Prydz, Tiesto, Afrojack and Axwell Ingrosso busy this festival packs quite a punch with it's headliners and promises to quench that dancing thirst. 

Any Lesser-known Party Destinations?

Dubai, UAE

First thing to note about Dubai is that the legal drinking age is slightly higher than the UK, at 21 - so maybe not the best of locations if you're in the 18-20 bracket! That aside, Dubai is quickly growing to be one of the most popular destinations in the world for the best DJ's and talent to frequent. Dubai's nightlife is hosted in a mixture of clubs and hotels, but otherwise is exactly what you'd expect to see akin to its western counterparts. 

Barcelona, Spain

Take a break from the beach and dive into acity break in Barcelona for a hefty helping of party nightlife amongst its vast array of clubs and bars and all this within a two hour flight from the UK. It's convenience is one thing, but it's variety and buzz inside of a busy metropolis steeped in ancient architecture really does set this location apart from the rest as a outlier. In this case, different definintely isn't a bad thing! 

Melbourne & Brisbane, Australia

Both of these Australian cities are almost guaranteed to have consistently beautiful weather which is a great plus point. Both of these are growing in popularity as they develop their status within Australia and the far east.
