Croatia is well known as a small country for big festivals. Zrće beach in Novalja on Pag island is host for some of the best electronic music festivals in Croatia during the hot summer months. We bring you an exquisite list of events from the Zrće 2017 program.
Croatian Ibiza, how its often called, was for years one of the main places for the best parties and festivals. When we cut out the mainstream events, there are still several festivals worth mentioning, with headliners from the top of the underground scene. The beach clubs Papaya, Aquarius, Kalypso and Noa are among the best clubs around the world, and each one is different and special in it's own way.
Hideout Festival (25. - 30. June 2017.)
Hideout Festival is an annual electronic music festival held on Zrce Beach, Croatia. 150 of the world’s best artists, for 5 days and nights, on a stunning beach sandwiched between mountains and the sea. This is the formula that has seen the festival sell out every year since it began, back in 2011.
Starting with the pre-parties and ending with the infamous after party, the programme includes sun-soaked pool parties, daytime boat parties and headline evening performances across the six beachfront stages.
Barrakud Festival (14. - 17. August 2017.)
Barrakud Croatia is a summer techno festival on Zrće Beach, Croatia's number one party spot. Fresh after celebrating its fifth birthday with Paul Kalkbrenner, Ellen Allien and Tom Trago in 2016, the brand is back in Novalja for an open-air party at some of the strip's best clubs.
Alongside its club nights, Barrakud will also span beach and boat parties, making the most of the Adriatic's stunning coastline and clear blue waters for a musical journey through the world of techno.
Sonus Festival (20. - 24. August 2017.)
At Sonus Festival, madness awaits. With almost 70 acts playing the festival this year, at three open-air clubs which are open until the sun is up again. And if you want to relax between partying too much, enjoy the local food, the beautiful beaches or take a hike around the island!
Sonus Festival is a techno festival set along the white, sandy beaches and crystal blue waters of Zrce Beach, Croatia. With the very best beachfront clubs hosting the occasion, expect top tier performances, high voltage soundsystems and stunning lightshows.
