From 23 to 25 July, 45 artists, most of whom come from neighboring Slovenia, will perform on two stages across the 48 hours of the festival. Slovenian techno star UMEK, cult trap diva and hip hop singer-songwriter Senidah, Dutchman Mark Sixma, and Croatian stars Matroda, E-Base, Vedran Car, and Croatian-German duo Corti organ are among some of the many DJs performing. 

No limits, of course, means that all visitors will need to present a certificate that they have recovered from COVID, a negative test, or at least one dose of vaccine received, but this is a small price to pay for spending time in the woods. For all those interested, testing points will be organized at the entrance for 20 kuna.


“After the shocking 2020, nothing can surprise us anymore. In the organization of the Forestland Festival IX, we embarked with full hearts, encouraged by the opportunities to work, but also by the desire of many partners to continue, work, and sacrifice to continue this tradition of summer parties, music, and festivals,” said Krešo Biškup on behalf of the festival.

“45 artists, 48 ​​hours, two stages, and over a hundred people in the organization and course of events mean only one thing – that Forestland will ignite the stage in 2021.”

Along with the queen of trap Senidah, a musician whose performance will surely be remembered in Međimurje is Matroda, who returns to the stage after 5 years. The Zagreb DJ has had an enviable career abroad and was named the 25th best producer globally. Well-known to the Forest audience is also Mark Sixma, a Dutch big room/trance DJ who is returning to Croatia for the third time, this time on the main stage. Finally, Umek, the king of techno, will take over the Forestroom stage on Friday and show us why he has been one of the best tech DJs in the world for almost three decades.


“I am happy that we are finally returning to Međimurje. The Forestland Festival is a music story of which I have been a part for 8 years, and I want to invite you all to come to the forest and party with us,” said Timo G, a Forestland resident from Slovenia. “We all can’t wait to dance, play music and finally hug you all. So come to the Forest!”

Tickets can be bought at Entrio, while a limited portion will also be available at the entrance to the festival!
