04BBC Radio 1 and 1Xtra's Stories2010012520100201 (R1)In the last of the current series of International Radio 1, Bobby Friction heads to Black Rock Desert in Nevada for Burning Man - one of the weirdest and most wonderful festivals on planet earth.

Follow Bobby as he goes on an 11 day journey into the desert, covering 22 thousand miles, only to reach a place where temperatures reach 40 degrees in the day, and sandstorms mean you can't see three feet in front of you.

And once there, there is nothing Bobby will not do to get into the spirit of the festival. He samples 150% proof moonshine and unsurprisingly ends up a little worse for wear. He hears why if you dance too hard at Burning Man you end up with Christmas toe - when your toe-nail falls off every Christmas. And he gets to watch bands called things like Boiled Eggs and Speaker-phone Underwear. But maybe the icing on the cake is witnessing 5000 naked ladies ride past his camp on bicycles.

Nihal heads to Sri Lanka's capital Colombo to ask the question: how does a music scene, set against a backdrop of war and conflict, develop and flourish?

His journy takes him through the thriving Colombo music scene to see what is being produced 18 months after the end of the war between the government and Tamil Tigers. From the beach raves in the south to the well-established hip-hop scene, young Sri Lankans have found ways to create music relevant to them. This music not only represents daily lives and challenges but also mirrors experiences unique to those who live in an environment where the threat of violence is never far away.

Nihal meets artists, producers, DJs, club owners and movers and shakers to hear how the music reflects a way of life. Among the colourful characters he meets are Tamil rapper, Krishan, who has set up his own studio and label and recently played huge gigs to hundreds of thousands of people in the north of the country (unheard of a year ago). Nihal also tracks down Iraj, king of Sri Lanka's music industry; club owner Gehan Fernandol; and the editor of an underground gay magazine in a society that hasn't yet accepted homosexuality. He also hears how hard it is for girls to party without their parents finding out.

Rob da Bank heads to Croatia to check out the musical and social scene.

Rob da Bank dips his toe in one of Europe’s fastest growing dance music scenes: Croatia. Rob meets the DJs, promoters and artists hoping to transform Croatia’s image from war torn province to clubbing hotspot. Great weather and generous licensing laws make Croatia an attractive target for international promoters, but can it survive it’s own success?

Beginning on Zrce beach (which some people are calling the new Ibiza) Rob joins 4,000 open-air clubbers to hear techno legend Sven Vath at club Papaya. He visits the Garden Festival where promoter Nick Colgan is leading the charge for British organized festivals, and sets sails on the Argonaughty boat party hosted by Crazy P before playing a sunset DJ set.

Contributors include Charlie 2na (Jurrassic 5), Norman Jay (Good Times sound system), Sven Vath, Marko from Gramophondzie, and Noah Ball - organizer of the biggest dubstep event anywhere to date, Outlook festival in Pula.

Ras Kwame goes to Ghana as Radio 1 DJs set off around the world on clubbing duty

Continuing the International Radio 1 series, Ras Kwame heads to Accra to check out the Ghanaian music scene.

At a time when UK artists of Ghanaian descent are looming large in the British charts (Tinchy Stryder and Sway to name but two who we hear from), Ras heads to the country’s capital to find out why it is producing such hot musicians at the moment.

To get his head around hiplife (high-life meets hip-hop) and the emerging GH-Rap scenes, he meets the country’s hottest stars of the new skool, such as M3nsa, and the pioneers, such as Reggie Rockstone.

He then heads out to the area of Tema, where a grass-roots music revolution is taking hold.

Ras also takes to the sidelines of a football match to find out how music plays a big part in supporting the unofficial national sport. And he speaks to Ghana's hero of the 2010 World Cup, Asamoah Gyan.
