Big happy smiles all round from the Soundwave Croatia Festival massive as we announce our biggest and best Soundwave line up to date!.
Soundwave is infamous for presenting the most in-demand leftfield artists of our time. Back for its third year with an unrivalled series of line up announcements kicking off in style with the news that the legendary Mr Roots Manuva will be jumping on board the Soundwave to give us one of his darkest and stormiest performances to date. Fresh from supporting Gorillaz on their Plastic Beach tour, Swedish electro funksters Little Dragon will also be joining the summer celebrations as they offer up their supersonic sound orgy overload for the senses!
Lauded by those in the know as Croatia’s best kept secret and THE must do festival on the European calendar, Soundwave Festival goers and artists alike come from far and wide. This year is set to be the sparkling gem of the Festival circuit, with a continuously progressive line up but always retaining its unique spirit that makes it so special year in year out.
Kick back and relax as you hear the sound of the wind blowing through the Palm trees, the Waves gently lapping on the beach as smiling people dance under the clear starry sky. Sun kissed days and balmy nights full to the brim of the best music, laughter with friends and an infectious familiar feeling from the heady days of hedonism from Ibiza’s infamous Summer of love and that is just the nighttimes!
Soundwave by day, flower’s into a Sun Music worshiper’s paradise. A beautiful private beach, an array of superbly curated boat parties and outside Amphitheatre performances roll into a endless offering of sonic bedazzlements, this year from the likes of Stuart McCallum (The Cinematic Orchestra) and legendary sound mixologists Hexstatic (performing their spectactular AV set) alongside sets from an eclectic band of musical connoisseurs such as Zero 7, Jamie XX, Channel one Sound System, Floating points, Belleruche, Yungun & Mr Thing amongst many others ready to rock the party.
Hosted by established UK promoters Soundcrash and New Bohemia, Soundwave offers a wonderful alternative to the UK’s rain soaked festivals. Beach bars, boat parties, an outdoor Amphitheatre and nightclubs offer an array of all day entertainment. With Sunshine guaranteed Soundwave is the perfect combination of summer holiday and music festival all at a price cheaper than a train ticket to Glastonbury!
Soundwave Early Bird tickets are now on sale at a mere £70 and Festival goers can buy super cheap Easyjet, Wizz Air and Ryan Air flights at bargain basement prices, making a festival ticket and flight package possible for as little as £130!. Soundwave fans head back year after year so expect flights to Croatia to sell out fast as Sun loving music fans book their tickets for the party of the year.
Not content with mere memories of previous glorious Sun-filled Soundwave musical extravaganzas Koko is throwing a shindig to celebrate the spirit of Soundwave and to gather the masses for a reunion on Saturday 4th December. This party is free to ticketholders of previous or future Soundwave Festivals however non-ticket holders can purchase £5 tickets Otherwise 2011 Soundwave Festival ticketholders can get free advanced tickets, all party and early bird ticket info is below.
