Europe’s most beautiful, boutique music event, Soundwave Festival Croatia is back for its 6th year and announces its most exciting and eclectic lineup yet. 7-piece New Zealand outfit Fat Freddy’s Drop lead the pack, followed by a highly-anticipated DJ set from one of hip hop’s most legendary artists, the Los Angeles based DJ/Producer/Rapper – Madlib, and British electronic music DJ/Producer Mr Scruff.
Other line-up highlights include Gold Panda who made headlines in 2013 after the release of the critically acclaimed ‘Half Of Where You Live’, Jonwayne; recipient of the Giles Petersen Worldwide Awards ‘album of the year’, and 9-piece Leeds-based dub band Gentleman’s Dub Club and 6 Music DJ & frontman of The Fun Lovin’ Criminals Huey Morgan, alongside standout performers from last years festival; Om Unit, Eliphino, Riot Jazz and Andrew Ashong. Rounding up a typically diverse Soundwave line-up are Anushka and Dele Sosimi, the latter set to deliver a tribute to the legendary Fela Kuti.
Set in a secret cove at the heart of the Dalmatian Coast of Croatia, the idyllic fishing town of Tisno is a beautiful backdrop to one of Europe’s finest independent festivals. This sun-drenched area of Croatia sits just slightly away from the incredibly beautiful Krka Waterfalls (National Park).
Heralded as one of ‘Europe’s Best Music Festivals’ by The Independent, Soundwave Festival Croatia makes the most of it’s bountiful setting year on year with its boat parties, beach stages and club nights for a long weekend of guaranteed sunshine in the aptly named ‘The Garden’.
Spread over five days, three festival stages, the Argonaughty ship and legendary open air after-party spot, Barbarella, Soundwave Festival Croatia delivers the perfect setting for the finest in left-field electronic and live music. Festival-goers can expect to hear hip-hop, dub, afro-beat, soul, house and everything in- between. Every year the festival’s boat parties provide some of the finest summer highlights, the site has its own dock, seconds from the main stage, from which The Argonaughty embarks on a Funktion 1-powered tour of the Dalmatian coast, taking in the delightful Komati Islands on a three-hour journey of music.
As well as offering opportunities to camp, Soundwave encourages its festival-goers to explore the setting by taking apartments in the town, presenting the chance to discover some of the finest Croatian cuisine and drink. The heritage and history of the area is embraced by organisers who also enjoy the annual donkey races! The festival sits neatly between Zadar and Split airports, allowing festival-goers to fly in from all over Europe. Transfers will be available to book throughout the festival.
