ASIA/MIDDLE EAST
ISRAEL
EILAT
Get ready to turn up the heat at Eilat's 2012 Solar Festival, which runs from August 29-September 1. Legendary parties from Europe, such the Circuit Festival in Barcelona and We Party Madrid, are coming to Israel for some fun and crazy nights. Israel's famous national gay party, Forever Tel Aviv, is also featured at the festival and is presenting Offer Nissim, one of the world's leading DJs. There is a good variety of gay men-only parties and girl-only parties to facilitate the process if you're on a mission to find your type. These parties are taking place at a mix of beaches and hotels, sometimes starting in the afternoon and ending at 6 A.M. http://www.solarfestival.net

JAPAN
AKITA CITY
Watch the Kanto Matsuri in wonder as these talented performers balance bamboo poles (as long as 12 meters) on a variety of body parts including their heads. This event takes place from August 3-6. What's more, these bamboo poles are decorated with approximately 46 candle-lit paper lanterns that weigh over 50 kilograms. During the Night Parades, the performers line up and show off their skills for 90 minutes to the beat of drums, flutes, and audience chants. Toward the end of the festival, Kanto Competitions are held and performers compete in solo or in groups categories. At the end of the competition, onlookers can talk to the performers and even try balancing a bamboo pole. http://www.japan-guide.com

TURKEY
ANTALYA
The gifted sand sculptors participating in the 6th Antalya Sand Sculpture Festival give new meaning to the idiom "built on sand" as they use over 7,500 tons of sand to create incredible, gigantic sculptures. This colossal exhibition is said to be the largest sand event in the world, due to the size of the sculptures and the space they occupy. This year, the theme is Hollywood, so 40 artists from ten different countries are competing to create famous movie characters, celebrities, and Hollywood scenes, now through October 29. http://www.larasandland.com
