The top 5 festivals in Croatia in 2015

Croatia, one of my top summer destinations for 2015! I love the cobbled side streets, people watching on a sunny afternoon, the coffee culture. The wine. Cocktails. Sun. Architecture. The old churches and cathedrals, and counting the sailing boats bob up and down in the distance. But what is new to me are the highly regarded music festivals in Croatia. For me it is not something I base my holiday destination around, however after my recent post on Ibiza and its new direction (forgetting the super clubs and welcoming the super yachts, being health conscious and the famous foodies!), I thought it may be time for a new party place to emerge. Cue Croatia and its top 5 festivals this summer:

Outlook Festival

Croatia Rocks

Last year we saw the first ‘Meribel Rocks’ in the French Alps, but this summer sees Ibiza Rocks’ top destination takeover come to Croatia with ‘Croatia Rocks’. Running from the 19th – 23rd July, the festival will be held on Zrce Beach, on the Island of Pag. With over 100 hours of live music, DJ’s and dancing, this one is not to be missed! Being host to Ibiza Rocks world domination, Croatia has suddenly upped a notch on the A-Listers destination guide for 2015.

Hideout Festival

Established in 2010, this year will be the festivals 5th year of 5 full days of hedonism!  Running from the 28th June – 2nd July, Hideout is one of the leading electronic music festivals in a festival goer’s calendar. Located on Zrce beach also, expect to be dancing poolside or out at sea on a boat party. When the sun sets, dance under the stars and get lost in your own music.

The Garden Festival

The Garden Festival on the 1st-8th July is in Tisno. If you haven’t got tickets for this one already, you may have to watch from a far, or follow the antics on Facebook and Instagram. The Garden Festival is, as Ibiza Rocks is, celebrating its 10th birthday AND ending it with a bang. Yes, 2015 will be the last Garden Festival. Party on land, on the sea, wherever you wish with a line up to rival a short novel, this is going to be one big party.

Outlook Festival

The Outlook Festival from the 2nd to 6th September can be found in Pula. Less dancy. Less electric. More hip hop & grime. It’s ‘all about that bass’! Outlook Festival is the largest Soundsystem Culture Festival in Europe and now in its 8th year. Set in the most beautiful location of an abandoned Roma fort in Stinjan. Hear Beenie Man, Wiley, Artful Dodger, Jurassic 5 and more.

Outlook Festival

Electric Elephant

Electric Elephant is a beachside carnival for clubbers. Expect a huge mix of electric, reggae, soul, techno and house. Barbarellas, an open air club in Tisno, is a major location for this festival, along with daytime boat parties & beach parties. If you have festivals on your radar for 2015 then why not sign up to 14 whole days of festival experience, combining the last ever Garden Festival from the 1st – 8th July, and then head to Electric Elephant for the 9th – 13th July!

Croatia offers the perfect landscape and backdrop to party throughout the summer of 2015, and to truly enjoy the festival season in all its glory!

    Great choice of festivals. I highly recommend Lost theory festival too. It offers performances of some of the best trance electronic music artists, a bunch of workshops and an amazingly friendly atmosphere.

    These all look amazing! After spending a few weeks in Croatia, I’m officially moving here. Seeing all these awesome festivals just got me even more excited. :-)
