The end of summer festivals is drawing nearer and it seems the place to be for that is in Croatia. We’ve got some end of summer festival picks and a rundown of two amazing upcoming festivals to share with you! Croatia has become the ultimate hotspot for festivals over the past few years, which is unsurprising with its clear skies, perfect scenery and warm weather. This is ideal especially for those who spend their most of their days under a gloomy, grey sky.
Dimensions festival is held from 28th August- 1th September (tickets still available!!) and is probably one of the best underground electronic festivals out there! You’ll find chilled beats on the beach and boat parties by day then killer DJ sets and parties by night with 18th century Fort Punta Christo as your setting- is there much more to ask for
Within Fort Punta Christo you will find 8 incredible ‘areas’:
The Clearing| An almost magical glade in the forest with enough space for 3000 dancing bodies
Noah’s Ballroom| Simply a circular pit with a sound system that will blow you away
Mungo’s Arena|This is said to play host to some of the most atmospheric showcases of the festival
The Void | Hints at being a normal festival stage apart from the insane line up and sound systems
The Moat | An all-round favourite venue with 5m high walls that tower over crowd and DJ alike
Fort Arena 1 | This venue definitely brings the wow factor if the others didn’t already, making it ideal for the festival’s headliners. With music running from early evening till 5am you’ll enjoy some of the best take over parties and see some of the biggest names
Boat Parties| 9 boat parties will be hosted by your favourite club nights/labels throughout
Beach Parties | BBQs. Bars, snorkelling, gorgeous sunshine. Say no more.
It seems Dimensions pretty much has it all, the setting alone makes a statement but the rest of the festival certainly speaks for itself.
Outlook festival is Dimensions’ sister festival. Outlook is now in its 7th year and has more than proved itself as Europe’s largest bass music and sound system culture festival. In the same stunning setting, Outlook runs from 4th September- 8th September this year. It is the place to be for underground dance music, whether it be house, techno, dubstep, reggae, dub, hip hop, garage, grime or electronica.
Both festivals start with an opening party placed in the unusual and dramatic setting of an amphitheatre (tickets sold separately). With Ms Lauryn Hill opening for Outlook and Caribou and Darkside opening for Dimensions this is going to be an unimaginable, unmissable experience for festival openings!
If one of these festivals isn’t enough why not stay and enjoy them both as the campsite stays open so it’s easy to overlap… With something this good it is understandable that four days just isn’t enough.
Now for our end of summer festival picks, whether you’re heading out to Croatia or risking rain in England, we have whatever you need, from bikinis to rain macs there is something for everyone and every weather!
