In recent years, Manchester’s seminal club night Electric Chair gave birth to it’s international expansion at The Garden Tisno In Croatia, Electric Elephant Festival. Like with the widely revered monthly parties that have taken place in Manchester since 1995, Electric Elephant builds its foundations with nothing but great electronic music, having showcased some of the most upfront, freshest artists of today, all whilst bringing in other influential artists who have had a profound effect on the worldwide music scene.
The Garden Tisno is fast becoming Croatia’s hottest party spot, not to mention being one of the most beautiful locations on the island. The festival site is situated in its own secluded cove that will keep the good vibes in and continuing throughout the week. The Garden offers a number of areas where the music will radiate from, those being the Beach Bar, which will run both day and night in the crisp heat and mild evenings, the main stage, where the majority of the key headliners will get the party started, as well as Barbarella’s, the infamous after party location which runs all summer, debatably Croatia’s best underground club.
This year Electric Elephant will be welcoming another eclectic line up compromising of some of the most in demand names in electronic music, of course welcoming a selection of Electric Chair favourites who have played iconic sets at the UK club throughout the years. Guests for 2015 include DJ Harvey, Todd Terry, The 2 Bears, Derrick Carter (Does Disco), Lindstrøm, David August, Prins Thomas, A Guy Called Gerald, Bicep, Prosumer, Gerd Janson, Andrew Weatherall, Sean Johnston, Ivan Smagghe, Mark E, Marquis Hawkes, Will Saul, Chris Duckenfield and Maurice Fulton. This is far from the end of the goings on, check out the lineup to date below with many more still to be announced.
There will also be a number of boat parties taking place, aside from a other activities to choose from, such as sailing, therapeutic massages, yoga and exciting excursions for you and your friends.
