The site is home to three distinctly different, but equally loved stages. The legendary Beach stage, set on the cosy curl of shore overlooking the bay is so close to the sea you are practically dancing on it, and is undeniably the place to be as the sun is setting. The site’s main stage, with its famous soundsystem – perfect for headline acts – can be found at the heart of the site, whilst nearby, nestled under a canopy of trees is the beautifully intimate Olive Grove stage – a treasured favourite amongst many festival revellers. Out on the water itself are the magnificently maintained, historic wooden party boats – Argonaugty & The Martina – which have hosted hundreds of unforgettable parties out on the Adriatic, with thousands of music lovers enjoying the experience of a lifetime. The setting here is simply the perfect spot; everything built around nature and growing with the environment. Rich with intimacy and a sense of wonder, it is truly a place to unwind as well as party.
And then of course, only a short drive away (by taxi, bus or even boat) is the sublime, world-renowned Barbarella’s Discotheque – a fully open air space, powered by Funktion-One, and evocative of Ibiza’s formative early days. Open from midnight, the parties on the main site winding down, Barbarella’s is the place to continue the party through till dawn. Dancing as the sun slowly rises over the dance floor, there is truly nowhere else quite like it.
Onsite accommodation comprises of apartments, as well as “glamping” options including airstream trailers, ready pitched belletents & mobile homes. The Kornati Islands are just a short boat ride away, with the historic cities of Zadar, Šibenik and Split close by. And don’t forget the natural beauty and wonder of Krka National Park – where you can swim in the emerald green waterfalls – as well as the enchanting Plitvice Lakes National Park, where Croatia’s abundance of natural splendour is just waiting to be explored.
Getting around and about
For the most glamorous entrance imaginable, Taxi boats are available with just a phone call to whisk you to and from Tisno and nearby towns directly into our own private bay on the festival site. You can even take a dramatic night time voyage to the Barbarella’s after-parties. They are quick and affordable and have rapidly become a highlight for many festival goers.
The 40 person Tisno Party Train runs on a loop between the festival entrance and centre of town throughout the day and into the evening. A cheap, easy and fun way to beat the heat.
Lots of you will now want to book your flights as Croatia Airlines, Ryanair, Easyjet, Jet 2, Monarch & Germanwings (from all over Europe) are at bargain prices for the festival dates to both Zadar and Split airports. Also, Ryanair have a couple of new flight routes (all direct to Zadar) from Manchester, Dublin, Düsseldorf, Frankfurt, Paris, Marseille, Billund, Brussels, Oslo, Haugesund, Stockholm and Gothenburg.
