Fans of the band Thirty Seconds to Mars and its frontman (and famous Hollywood actor) Jared Leto are in for a treat, as they have announced two concerts in Croatia this summer as part of the new Mars Island Festival, reports Slobodna Dalmacija on January 17, 2019. 

Namely, the Oscar and Golden Globe winner and his team have rented the island of Obonjan to accommodate their fans for a three-day festival. From August 9 to 12, 2019, the new Croatian edition of ‘Mars Island Festival’ will be held on the island of Obonjan, just off the coast of Šibenik.

In addition to concerts by the favorite band, the festival will offer a range of accompanying content such as yoga, meditation, workshops and water sports. Visitors will be accommodated in luxurious four-bed tents (at a price 9750 kuna), which includes accommodation for three nights and food.

For a (much) higher price, accommodation will be offered in two-bed wooden homes, which will also include a VIP experience with Jared Leto. 

The actor has yet to reveal his exact plans for the summer spectacle, but judging by his activity on social media, as well as his close relationship with his fans, we can expect more information soon

As we know now, ticket prices will range from 9,750 to 42,270 kuna – yes, you heard that right. 

The “Mars Island Festival” has thus far been held in Malibu, though for their fifth anniversary, Leto wanted to change the atmosphere and move to “the idyllic Croatian coast.”

Company “Obonjan Rivijeria” is not hiding their pleasure and pride that Obonjan will host one of the world’s greatest new-age bands. 

According to Kristijan Gržetić, the arrival of Jared Leto and Thirty Seconds to Mars is a great spectacle for the international recognition of the island as a destination that is based on the concept of well-being and attractive and unique amenities.

“This is proof that Obonjan has achieved a certain status thanks to its recognition in the world. Thirty Seconds to Mars will leave Malibu and Los Angeles for the first time and bring along their fans who usually organize this type of event once a year,” said Gržetić.

Gržetić added that Obonjan would continue to launch a number of prestigious events in the coming years, while maintaining the status as a favorite destination for corporate events, as it offers a wealth of exciting content, such as yoga, meditation, health, workshops, team building activities and more.

Gržetić also promised that there would be similar attractions in the future.

“We’re sure we will not stop there. The town of Šibenik and Obonjan are growing. Our wish is that the city is spoken about as one of the main destinations, not only for tourism, but also for music, festivals, and entertainment,” concluded Gržetić.

Recall, in 2015, the company Obonjan Riveria was granted a concession for 43 years from the City of Šibenik, and thus built a luxurious camping site with a capacity of 1,000 beds on the now popular ‘Obonjan’ island.
