ONLY ONE MORE MONTH TO GO...
So you might have missed Glastonbury this weekend, but who wants to get lost in a mini city, and spend a fortune, with no phone reception in some soggy fields in Somerset?? Been there, done that!
The place to be for any discerning festival go-er is Soundwave in Croatia!
Tisno is the laid back home of Soundwave, which is now in it's ninth year in the pretty town, and brings party goers from far and wide!
It's a laid back music festival where you can get your groove on to broken beat, reggae, afro, house, disco, acid jazz, to hip-hop, soul, funk, drum and bass along with live music, DJs, on the beach!!!
With Laura Mvula headlining, alongside Roy Ayers, Gilles Peterson, Go Go Penguin, The Pharcyde, Egyptian Lover, Josey Rebelle, Horse Meat Disco, there is something to tickle most musical tastebuds!
And it's not just about the music, Soundwave has worked with street artists to create the vibe of the Garden Resort and the Open Air Cinema is set to show independent and Croatian film.
If you have never been to Croatia before, this is the ideal place to begin your odyssey. Guaranteed sunshine all day, with crystal clear Adriatic sea to cool off in, in the daytime, leading to late night dancing under the stars.
The festival is based on site in Tisno which boasts an incredible water-side beach bar, where you are so close to the sea you are almost dancing in it, and the main stage is just behind. The Olive Grove stage is nestled in the cover of the nearby woodland, and you cannot attend the festival without hitting the legendary after hours venue Barbarella's at least once!
Based on the coast, you need to squeeze in a boat party too, I'd highly recommend hiring a snorkel, and exploring the surrounding islands too...
Did I mention I love this place??
