Dimensions Festival – Fort Punta Christo, Pula

Featuring: Will be announced closer to the festival
Date: 28th August – 1st September 2019

If you’re looking for a festival with a touch of Roman history, Dimensions is the festival you’re looking for! This 5-day electronic music adventure along the Adriatic coast is sure to be anything but average with its opening ceremony held in the Pula Arena – the only remaining Roman amphitheatre to have 4 side towers, impressive right? Be sure to pack a raincoat, as rumour has it, the clouds like to put on a performance as well with impressive thunderstorms.

Outlook Festival – Fort Punta Christo, Pula

Featuring: Andy C, RTRN II Jungle, Loyle Carner, Shy FX, Bugzy Malone…
Date: 4th – 9th  September 2019

Dimension’s sister festival Outlook is also known to be high up on the list when it comes to unrivalled combinations of sound and surroundings. For you bass heads out there, this one is for you! Like Dimensions; Outlook is hosted inside Pula’s Fort Punta Christo and 2000-year-old amphitheatre. During the daytime, four daily boat parties get you into the Croatian party mood. On the other hand,  if you’re looking for a little R&R you could enjoy the day at one of the chilled beach sessions.Croatia Festival - Outlook Festival

Love International – Tisno

Featuring: A Love From Outer Space, Ben UFO, DJ Harvey, Joy Orbison, Optimo, Peggy Gou…
Date: 3rd July – 10th July 2019

If the revellers at Love International look like old friends, that’s probably because they are. This Croatian house music festival, which takes place in Tisno, has earned a devoted following since its predecessor, The Garden Festival, began in 2006. Love International’s intimate vibe is contagious. The atmosphere at the seaside festival is easy-going and upbeat, as you’d expect from a sunny weekend soundtracked by feel-good disco and house.

Sonus Festival – Zrce Beach

Featuring: Amelie Lens, Rødhåd, Chris Liebing, Richie Hawtin, Ricardo Villalobos, Seth Troxler, Len Faki…
Date: 18th – 22th August 2019

If minimalist dance music and big-room house and techno are your thing, then Sonus Festival is essential. Many attendees reminisce about the annual closing party hosted by Berlin’s infamous Club Der Visionaere, which in the past has been headlined by minimal masters like Ricardo Villalobos and Sonja Moonear. The festival’s home, Zrce Beach, is an increasingly popular holiday destination that, thanks to festivals like Sonus, is becoming a magnet for dance music lovers.

Dekmantel Selectors – Tisno

Featuring: Bufiman, Dazion, Demdike Stare, Donato Dozzy, Francois K, Identified Patient, Kasra V, Khidja, Objekt…
Date: 22nd – 26th August 2019

Amsterdam’s Dekmantel crew know how to put on a festival. In addition to two annual events in their home city (Dekmantel Festival and Lente Kabinet), they now also throw festivals in Brazil and Croatia. Their Croatian edition is called Selectors, and it’s geared towards DJs who dig far and wide for their music. But don’t expect a stuffy, chin-stroking atmosphere—after all, this is Tisno, one of Europe’s most laid-back party locations.

Hideout Festival – Zrce Beach

Featuring: Jamie Jones, Hannah Wants, Bicep, Richy Ahmed, MK, Eats Everything, Claptone…
Date: 1st – 5th July 2019

Hideout Festival is one of the most playful events on the Croatian festival calendar, routinely attracting a boisterous, up-for-it crowd. It’s a weeklong party, where festival-goers choose between five different open-air venues, with the music dished out by some of the biggest names in underground dance music. This one is for the hedonists.
