Heading for a fifth anniversary celebration that will mark its very best event yet, Soundwave Festival Croatia has curated a formidable lineup that will combine with the always-electric Soundwave atmosphere and the glorious holiday surroundings to make this a trip to remember for a lifetime.
Bonobo hits Soundwave in the midst of his awesome tour supporting universally acclaimed album ‘The North Borders’, while sellout successes for UK promoter Soundcrash Quantic and Alice Russell make an appearance at Soundwave, and anticipation is high for DJ Shadow’s debut performance in Croatia. Robert Glasper Experiment recently wowed audiences with a live collaboration with Kanye West, and DOOM’s hip hop credentials are unrivalled, making his billing at Soundwave extra special.
The Argonaughty boat parties embark just seconds from the main stage, and this year there are 16 separate parties to enjoy, hosted by the likes of Ninja Tune, Soundcrash and Tru Thoughts, and featuring sets from artists of the calibre of Bonobo, Mr Thing, Quantic, Om Unit, Shigeto, Kutmah and Craig Charles to name but a few. There’s even a boat party with a full-on brass band on board. The three-hour Funktion 1-powered tours of the Dalmatian coast are the ultimate highlight of the Soundwave experience and a chance to get up close to the artist.
Spread over five days and three stages, Soundwave Festival Croatia is the place to let loose, unwind and party to the very best in hip hop, reggae, soul and funk in the ultimate sun-drenched location. The landscape is truly draw-dropping, with the Kornati Islands National Park just a stone’s throw away from the The Garden site for those who want to add an extra special touch to their Soundwave experience. Tisno is only a short walk away, and is perfect for daytime trips and an opportunity to savour the local produce. Indulge and hire a boat, check out the many coves and islands that are dotted just off the edge of the festival site.
