ABOUT THE GARDEN RESORT
With its superb sunshine record and a wide range of accommodation options, The Garden Resort is a truly unique setting. More than a music festival, Defected Croatia is a holiday in itself, with a range of venues running across the 5 days.
The Main Stage will showcase headline artists from around the globe and is set in a tree-lined area of parkland just a short stroll away from the shores of the Adriatic. With waves lapping right up to the dancefloor and stunning views out to the islands, the Beach Stage provides a magical experience for DJs and festival-goers alike.
The legendary outdoor nightclub Barbarella’s Discotheque gives revellers the chance to experience what is today an almost unique opportunity: to dance under the stars until sunrise. Finally, twice-daily boat parties will be hosted aboard the good ship, Argonaught, an infamous old wooden vessel that will play host to unforgettable parties afloat.
A true slice of paradise in Croatia, the Garden Resort in Tisno combines azure Adriatic waters, shimmering sandy beaches, guaranteed sunshine, exquisite sunsets and star-lit night skies that make for a fantastic festival setting as well as a completely viable summer holiday alternative.
Beyond its outstanding beauty, Croatia is also extremely affordable – accommodation, food and drink represent excellent value for money. Served by two airports with flights originating from over 50 cities around Europe, the Garden Resort is also highly accessible and there’s an extensive range of on-site accommodation from the more exotic - luxurious Airstreams, traditional Shikar tents or even yachts – in addition to well-presented apartments and DIY camping facilities. There’s also varied offsite accommodation options to suit all budgets.
Located just a short walk or water taxi ride from the historic old town of Tisno, with its waterside bars, cafés and restaurants, the Defected Croatia site has both a true festival ‘feel’ and retains an intimacy so often missing from many contemporary electronic music festivals.
Further acts and the full programme for each of the stages and boat parties will be announced in the coming weeks.
