Calorimetry in high-energy physics is rapidly evolving, with new specifications (e.g. higher energies, enormous particle densities) and a wide variety of technologies, both for signal creation and detection. Despite excellent advances in Monte-Carlo simulations for predicting the behaviour of novel detectors in extreme conditions, beam tests of prototypes is still a mandatory part of the development process. But the demands on testbeam facilities to be able to test these prototypes are becoming more and more difficult to achieve. We discuss some of the cutting-edge calorimeters being developed for HL-LHC and CLIC/ILC, and review the pros and cons of various worldwide testbeam facilities for evaluating prototypes.
