Prochain vs Suivant

I get confused between prochain and suivant. The next day is le jour suivant, but the next summer is l'ete prochain, right? How do I know when to use what? Thanks.

This relates to:
Prochain / dernier = Next / last (durations) -

Bonjour John ! The difference is as such: - "Prochain" = (x) next l'été prochain = NEXT summer - "Suivant" = following/next l'été suivant = the following summer / THE next summer I hope that's helpful! À bientôt !

So the difference is that suivant goes with THE? So, l'été prochain je vais visiter Paris, et l'été suivant (deux ans de maintenant) je vais visiter Madrid. Is that correct? Thanks.
