THE SUMMER OF LOVE IS BECKONING AT LOVE INTERNATIONAL
Try and forget the January blues by looking forward to a summer of love, and preferably dancing under the stars, somewhere hot!
And if you need any inspiration, the hippest festival on the block is the three year old, Love International Festival in Croatia, which has risen from the ashes and replaced the infamous Garden Festival, which dominated the summer dance scene on the Dalmation Coast for a decade.
With the summer 18 lineup just announced, Love International is the ideal place to come to relax all day and play all night. The week long event means you can socialise, sunbathe and party as little as much as you want, and you don’t even have to stay in a tent! There is plenty of private and hotel accommodation off site, so you can freshen up, and get fresh!
The festival caters for over 2 thousand international party goers, and your weekly (or daily) wristband means you can enter as many times as you like.
And as it situated right on the coastline, it is the ideal location to grab a lounger and get your sunbathing in, whilst listening to chill out tunes in the day, and as the sun sets, the pace livens up and you can get your groove on to the some of the world’s best dance DJs.
With the Beach Bar on the waters edge, Main Stage and Olive Bar all showcasing bands and music, you can easily switch it up, depending on what kind of action you feel like, but it is the Beach Bar which carries on the party until the early hours- a dip in the sea optional!
This is ideal for people who like a good time- whether you like disco, jazz, classical, soul or breakbeat, the organisers have sourced a little bit of everything; Along with the best of house and techno; This year sees festival faves Four Tet, Horse Meat Disco, Crazy P Soundsystem, Rub N Tug, The Unabombers, Heidi Lawden showcasing throughout the week. As it's such an intimate venue, you are likely to meet them party with the rest of the crowd too!
At least one afternoon boat party is a must, as well as the after parties at Barbarellas, where you never who you will meet on the coach to the venue!
Can you tell I’m addicted?! See you under the stars.
