The Garden Tisno in Croatia will be alive with music once again this year as Soundwave takes over its beautiful surroundings to bring a selection of worldwide music stars to this unique 5 day festival that is returning for its 7th consecutive year. Over the space of the week you will be able to hear a vast number of your favourite artists playing the best in reggae, dub, dancehall, soul, house and disco in a number of idyllic settings like no other on earth.
In a feat to keep Soundwave Croatia a fresh and exciting festival, this year there will be a number of revered artists using the festival site as a canvas, transforming walls, apartments and buildings into artistic installations that will be unique to the entirety of the site. Some of the artists who have been invited include the talented Roberto Ciredz, BestJoinedUp and the New Analog collective.
Looking towards the music there is a huge variety of goings on throughout the five days. Whether you’re into big bass or funky rhythm you will be able to sate your musical appetite at The Beach Stage or Barbarella’s Open Air Discotheque, not to mention on one of the many boat parties that will be setting sail on each day of the festival. This year the line up includes the likes of Detroit rap duo Slum Village (pictured above), experimental across the board DJ Mr. Scruff, drum & bass aficionado LTJ Bukem and Mala of the inimitable dub duo Digital Mystikz.
This is far from the end though as there will also be appearances from the likes of Alice Russell, who will be performing a live PA, DJ Marky & Stamina MC, Bodha, Maribou State, Fatima, Alexander Nut, Craig Charles, Channel One Soundsystem and whole host of other artists and club brands who will be hosting coastline parties and night long raves throughout the festival.
