The makers of EXIT Festival have stretched out their creative arms and put together a new project, with their fresh-faced Sea Star festival joining the party in Croatia in 2017. Based on the beaches of Stella Maris, Umag, the festival will run across Friday 26th and Saturday 27th May next year, and the organisers will be hoping it can make a similar impression to the award-winning other members of the EXIT Summer of Love series.
Also falling under EXIT’s Summer of Love banner are Montenegro’s Sea Dance, Romania’s Revolution Festival and of course the festival that began it all, EXIT in Serbia. Sea Star’s debut on the Adriatic Coast will make it the fourth part of the puzzle, and will be the first instalment of the 2017 series with the others to follow in June and July. Still awaiting news on the majority of the artists playing, The Prodigy have already been presented as the bill-toppers, with Dubioza Kolektiv and Urban&4 also named.
Offering an opening party and an afters session for anyone wanting to extend the festivities in Croatia, Sea Star can be expected to match up to the high standards set by its EXIT siblings, and will be a strong addition to an already thriving Croatian summer festival scene.
Tickets go on sale Tuesday 20th December 2016 at 11:00am.
