Friday, 12 June 2015

We will attempt to give you a clear and concise run thought the best festivals this beautiful country has to offer from north to south and will make sure you know the place, the date and the headliners.

So we take out journey a bit more south and arrive at Zrće beach Novalja, on the Island of Pag, the most famous party destination in Croatia often dubbed The second Ibiza.
From Jul 25th to Aug 1st prepare your ears for seven days of love and joy on the Loveweek festival with the sounds of artists like Robin Schulz, Showtek, Oliver Koletzki and Felix Krocher. Aug 8th to Aug 15th is reserved for the 4the edition of Barrakud festival with huge headliners such as Maceo Plex, Sven Väth, Dennis Ferrer and Ellen Allien, while Aug 16th through 20th is designated for Sonus festival, where you will be greeted by the beats of Dixon, Sven Väth, Jamie Jones, Marco Carola, Richie Hawtin and Seth Troxler.

Then it is time to move away a few miles into the continent where you will be able to find all that was lost on the Lost Theory festival at Deringaj in the amazing ambient near the river Otuca dancing and swinging among the trees deep in the forest from 12th to 17th of Aug with psychedelic and goa trance DJs, live acts and performers. A tad more south we hop to Zadar which invites you to come and dance at the open spaces on the new Viva Riva festival on Aug 7th and 8th with Marco Bailey, Technasia, Christian Smith and Pig & Dan.
From Zadar we move on to Tisno, the enchantingly wonderful location that is one of the fastest growing and most sought for festival destinations in Croatia. For some mindless senseless fun Tisno opens the season with The Garden festival. Jul 1st through 8th is going to be your last chance ever to visit The Garden festival on its final 10th edition, called “Going Out with a bang”, with the farewell soundtrack provided by Seth Troxler, Bonobo, Craig Richards, while just a day after we say goodbye to The Garden  we have a new bomb.

Jul 9th to Jul 13th will be a time to notice the huge Electric Elephant in the room when disco music will be celebrated by the likes of A Guy Called Gerald live, Derrick Carter and Bicep. Soon it will be time to stop being practical and join the crowds at Stop Making Sense festival lasting from Jul 16th to Jul 19th. It will become a home for all house, disco, techno, electro, soul and funk lovers with musicians such as Anja Schneider, Anthony Naples and The Black Madonna.

After the madness it will be time for sleeker, sexier sound of SuncéBeat Festival as a home for sultry soulful house from Jul 22nd to 29th and the soul will be brought by artists such as Kerri Chandler, Louie Vega, Dimitri from Paris. Finally Soundwave festival will be reverberating over the water surface Aug 6th through 10th with the sounds of Mr. Scruff, LTJ Bukem, Slum Village. Detroit and Torino`s Movement is coming in Croatia with club edition festival from 31st of July till 2nd of Aug in Barbarellas Pirovac. Confirmed artists are Derrick May, Timo Maas, Robert Hood aka Floorplan and Petar Dundov.

Our last stop in the Northern Dalmatia region is Sibenik where you will be free to lend your ear to the SuperUHO festival from Aug 6th to Aug 8th (St. Michael Fort) with Einstürzende Neubauten, King Khan And The Shrines, Rosetta.
