As promised, the Young Academic Ultimate Festival Guide is back, bigger and better than before featuring every music event worth knowing about. Today’s instalment contains vital information about Europe’s finest boutique festival, Soundwave. Now at a beautiful new location in Tisno on the Dalmatian coastline between Zadar and Split – this year’s line up looks to be a real treat!

Labelled as “one of the best festivals in the world” by none other than Roots Manuva and also highly recommended by The Guardian who said that Soundwave has “‘All the quirks of Bestival but in a far more beautiful and sunny setting” – this festival could well be the best kept secret in this year’s festival guide.

Hip Hop seems to be a strong theme at this year’s Soundwave with De La Soul being complemented superbly by British Hip Hop’s rising star Ghostpoet. Deeply cinematic Hidden Orchestra abd Submotion Orchestra will also be out in force with over fifty other acts to provide sunshine music with a deeply idyllic backdrop.

Being an ultimate beach party, Soundwave also has boat parties to the Kornati Islands and even an onsite club for those ravers out there that like to get their groove on into the early hours. There is also plenty to do offsite as well. You can take in the local vibes with a stroll into the picture perfect local town of Tisno or enjoy the culinary delights of the local farming and fishing villages.
