You already missed the Love International and Hideout Festival, so make sure you don’t miss another great opportunity to have fun! Here are a few festivals that will definitely persuade you to go to Croatia and party until you can’t party anymore.
The biggest EDM (electronic dance music) festival in the region brings tens of thousands of dance music lovers from all of Europe together for three days in July. The festival takes place in Split and was recently moved from Poljudin Stadium to Park Mladeži. The festival brings out the biggest stars of electronic and dance music, like Armin Van Buuren, Swedish House Mafia, Martin Garrix, Alesso, David Guetta and many, many more. Make sure to buy your ticket and reserve a spot in the camping zone or book a hotel room months prior to the festival since the prices go up rather quickly.
This year’s fourteen Seasplash is one of the longest-lasting Croatian festivals and one of the most relaxing music and lifestyle events in the region. It takes place in Pula from July 21 – July 24. Four days of reggae, ska, dubstep, hip hop and various electronic music on seven stages, daily programs on the beach, a camping zone, and a chill-out zone is all you can wish for.
From July 23 – July 30 you can go to an electronic music outdoor party on Croatia’s infamous Zrće Beach, where you will enjoy a week of non-stop partying in two of the best clubs – Aquarius and Papaya – or on boat parties. Decide which suits you best, or attend both; you have seven days to try it all J Hitting the dance floor will be Don Diablo, Deborah de Luca, Lost Frequencies and more, playing music ‘till the early morning. Zrće Beach is also famous for other activities, such as jet skiing and bungee jumping, making Loveweek the ultimate festival vacation you will remember for years to come.
Obonjan Island Festival
Brand new to the party scene, this island, which was deserted for a decade, is the perfect location for your next party trip. The best thing about this festival is that you can stay a week or a month because the festival starts on July 28 and ends on September 6. In that time, Obonjan will be laying on an immense line-up of music (from hip hop to funk’n’soul to house), as well as workshops, art, sports and more. Obonjan has no fixed dates, instead inviting you to stay as long as you like J Just make sure you sleep in their Forest Lodges or in Bell Tents – the best experience ever!
This is the European cousin of the Detroit Electronic Music Festival. It’s held in a beautiful location, The Garden Resort Tisno. From July 28 – August 1 you can expect a high-quality line-up, like Sven Vath, Nina Kravitz, Dave Morales, and other famous artists. Need we say more?
Located in an abandoned Roman fort in Stinjan, this festival site is isolated but connected to a campsite and is unlike any other festival site in the world! The campsite opens at 12 pm on August 30, and the opening concert is set in Pula’s 2000-year-old Amphitheatre on August 31. (Due to limited capacity, it is ticketed separately.) The Outlook Festival starts on September 1 and lasts until September 5, with plenty of underground dance floor music and live performances from Damian “Jr. Gong” Marley, Andy C, Kano and more. Tip: if you can, attend at least one boat party and set sail on the Adriatic with your favourite artist and a fully stocked bar. Sounds perfect, right?
