The summer season in Tisno brings a series of festivals that will take place from June to the end of August, and a total of 7 festival events will attract up to 20,000 visitors this summer.
Love International (June 28)
Love International is the spiritual successor of the acclaimed original Croatian odyssey, The Garden Festival, and seeks to build upon the decade’s worth of magic created already in the region. By day a harmonious holiday beneath the sizzling sun, and by dusk as the beats shift gear and introduce each balmy night beneath a canopy of stars, the intimate setting holds a unique energy, sound tracked by some of the world’s leading underground DJs and producers, drawing a vibrant and diverse audience from across the world to this tiny strip of paradise.
Boat, Beer & Boogaloo (July 13)
The Garden and The Craig Charles Funk and Soul Club are very proud to reveal Croatia’s brand new festival for 2017 - Beats, Beer and Boogaloo which takes place from Thursday 13th – Monday 17th July.
Taking place in one of the region’s most beautiful locations - the coastal idyll of Tisno nestled along the stunning Adriatic coastline - the festival is a unique fusion of craft beers from around the world and a lineup of amazing funked-up live music and DJs curated by Craig himself. The festival will feature boat parties, club nights at the legendary Barbarella’s, street food, tutored drinks tasting, a carnival procession through the streets of Tisno and much more.
SunceBeat (July 19)
SuncéBeat is a loving, carnivalesque festival with a uniquely family vibe, a boutique affair that attracts a crowd of likeminded souls who put the party ahead of pretension. Born in 2010 Suncebeat, continues to innovate and set the tone for forward thinking, progressive events on the beautiful Dalmatian coast, we were the first to bring deep house titan Larry Heard to the Garden, the first to invite Berlin powerhouse Prosumer to spin, and the first Croatian festival to secure a date with the semimythical DJ Harvey. The trend continues with the likes of LNTG, Black Coffee, MCDE, Hunee & Antal, Jeremy Undergound & first to bring Kerri Chandler & Louie Vega over, plus the only ones yet to bring DJ Jazzy Jeff to the Garden Resort in Tisno. Live artists in the form of The Brand New Heavies, Roy Ayres, Lonnie Liston Smith & Grammy Award Winner "Gregory Porter", we are committed to curating a fiercely diverse lineup that speaks of our intention to join the dots between the best of the past and the innovators of tomorrow.
Soundwave (July 27)
Europe's most friendly boutique festival is back - bigger and better than ever!
Soundwave Croatia returns to the magical Garden Tisno for yet another incomparable five day adventure packed full of music, art, film and much more.

Once again, there will be an array of main stage house superstars and disco icons, joined by underground heroes on the beach stage and boat parties, all making for a truly unique outdoor clubbing experience. Combined with delicious food and a chance to genuinely relax, we’ve discovered the perfect spot for our very own musical festival come holiday.

Coming with it will be one of the best crowds on the festival circuit for what is sure to be the party of the year - we can’t wait!
Programming wise its funk, soul, balearic house, disco and party beats in the scorching hot sun with boat parties and dancing in the water. This is food for the soul and a well-earned celebration for hedonistic adventure seekers at the end of a festival season. Let the good times roll!"
Dekmantel (August 24)
After a successful first edition, Dekmantel proudly launches the second episode of Selectors in Croatia from the 24th till the 28th of August 2017. Selectors focuses heavily on Dekmantel’s support for the art of DJ’ing, celebrating extra-ordinary DJs that have turned collecting and playing music into an art form. The festival will host just 1500 people and takes place at The Garden Resort in Tisno, a small part of the beautiful coastline of the Adriatic Sea, while the much-cheered Barbarella’s is the place to go during nighttime.
