Soundwave Croatia returns to the magical Garden Tisno for yet another incomparable five day adventure where kindred spirits flock to experience one of Europe’s most life-affirming festivals packed full of music, art, film and much more.
Hidden away in a secluded cove along the serene Dalmatian Coastline, Soundwave offers an energising setting to unwind and recharge while simultaneously providing an unparalleled soundtrack of uplifting music performed and selected masterfully by some of the world’s best musicians and DJs.
Soundwave’s famed musical spectrum seamlessly intertwines with the serene surroundings of The Garden where at any one point your ears can expect to be treated to the soulful sounds of hip-hop, reggae, jazz & world, funk & disco, electronica, broken-beat, drum and bass across three stages, The Argonaughty ship and the legendary open air nightclub Barbarella’s.
Having been one of the highlights of last year’s festival, we’ll yet again be commissioning some of our favourite street artists and illustrators from across Europe to transform The Garden into an even more visually stunning setting. The much loved open air cinema experience also returns along with its showcase of independent and Croatian film.
As well the ever evolving line-up of global musicians, club nights and boat parties that Soundwave offers, festival – goers can also take advantage of the surrounding areas of natural beauty where activities include snorkelling, diving and fishing. A visit to the surrounding islands is easily accomplished by renting a small boat and a trip to one of the immensely beautiful nearby national parks such as Krka and Kornati is a must!
The warm and welcoming local fishing town of Tisno provides a beautiful backdrop to the festival and is perfect for exploring the local cuisine, grabbing a morning coffee or to simply wander round to admire the beautiful architecture, some of which dates back to the 16th century. Now in it’s ninth year Soundwave is one of the original Croatian music festivals and is back this year bigger and better than ever.
