If you are looking for a great holiday fun, beach parties and music festivals, Croatia is host
to some of the best music festivals in Europe during the summer time.

Hideout Festival

Probably one of the most popular and well-known festivals in Croatia, Hideout festival is all about the house, techno and grime scene with famous DJ’s and artists turning out to mass crowds. Even if those music genres don’t fancy your taste there’s still a great party atmosphere to enjoy.

As well as the main festival predominantly being performed on the beachside the party also gets taken off-shore through boat parties where the party antics can continue. Hideout festival is held on Zrće beach, in town of Novalja.

Soundwave Tisno

Based in a garden site in town of Tisno (near island of Murter and Kornati National Park), Soundwave provides chilled vibes as you soak in the Summer sun and take in the variety of music it has to offer. Genres include house, hip-hop, reggae and more which provides a perfect setting to relax and sightsee around the local area. It sits alongside a coastal beach with crystal clear water and there’s an opportunity to hop on a boat to visit local islands.
