Noah Ball on Outlook and Dimensions Festival: We’d Love to Return to Pula

Lauren Simmonds

As we recently reported, the wildly popular Outlook and Dimensions festivals which have traditionally taken place in the Istrian city of Pula have announced their move much further south, more precisely to the historic Dalmatian city of Šibenik.

After an entire decade in Pula, the festival will head further down south, take place at three separate locations, and even the actual dates will alter, meaning that the festival will no longer be held at the end of August, as has become the norm over the last ten years in Pula.

As Glas Istre/Zoran Angeleski writes on the 12th of October, 2019, the Outlook and Dimensions festivals’ main man, Noah Ball, says that although he’d love to return to Pula one day in the future, unfortunately running the Outlook and Dimensions festivals at Fort Punta Christo has created multiple challenges over the years in which it has been present in the city every summer.

”Electricity and water are just two of several challenges. There are many areas of festival activity that have significant costs associated with them. Organising music events is a very risky business, which does not bring much benefit with it.

In recent years, the decline in the value of the British currency against the euro/kuna has had the greatest impact on our business; the pound has fallen by almost twenty percent. This has greatly affected our company and made our business unsustainable within the model by which we’ve run it for many years.

We would love to return to Pula one day, but in order to do so we need to consider changing the format of the event and seeking as much support as possible to make the festivals sustainable,” explained Ball.
