Mars Festival

A one-day event held in Croatia’s capital, the Mars Festival allows you to rock and enjoy the city all at the same time. The Festival will be held at the Klub Mocvara & Dvorana Jedinstvo, with the main stage in the outdoor courtyard whilst two more stages or areas are located indoors. Klub Mocvara is located on a street called Trinjanski nasip which is close to the Sava river, near the Most slobode (Liberty Bridge). If you’re heading from the main bus station in Zagreb, take tram number 5 and get off at the Kruge stop. It is then a short walk from here. Alternatively, if you’re heading from the main train station/Trg bana Jelacica, take tram 6 and get off at the Drziceva stop (or the one after); again, it will be a short walk from here.

IN Music Festival

This year’s INmusic Festival is really shaping up to be a truly spectacular event, with some top notch acts performing! Held in the pretty setting of Lake Jarun on the outskirts of the Zagreb, the INmusic Festival is smaller than some other events held in similar-sized cities, but still attracts a number of big name pop and rock acts. All in all, this event would be a great way of combining a city break with a European festival experience!

Hideout Festival

Entering into its seventh year, Hideout Festival is an annual electronic music festival held on Zrce Beach, Croatia. 150 of the world’s best artists, for 5 days and nights, on a stunning beach sandwiched between mountains and the sea. This is the formula that has seen the festival sell out every year since it began, back in 2011.

Hartera Festival

One of the most wonderful things about this festival is its location – it is housed in an old paper factory (one of the largest in Europe) that functioned for 150 years before falling to the wayside. The original aim of the Hartera Festival was to take this fantastic old and disused building and open it up to the public for cultural purposes.

Stop Making Sense Festival

Situated on a woody peninsula in the small village of Petr?ane on the stunning Adriatic coast of Croatia, the second Stop Making Sense festival promises to entertain and thrill in equal measure. More than a music/dance festival, this is a holiday in a beautiful spot with great value family run restaurants, villas by the beach to rent, and independently owned small hotels and campsites. You can even charter your own yacht and moor up right by the action! With a stellar line up of DJs and bands playing across the dance musical spectrum (from jazz, folk and Latin to house and techno via reggae, dubstep and electro), this is the perfect combination of sun,
