Zrće Beach in Novalija, on the island of Pag has a party boy reputation. Essentially the pioneers in bringing beach clubs and after beach parties to the coast of Croatia, Zrće Beach is known as the tried and true party island in the country. Similarly to Tisno, Zrće Beach also hosts music festivals throughout the summer, although this music festival season starts earlier, already beginning at the end of June! With 10 summer music festivals gracing Papaya, Kalypso, and Aquarius clubs on the beach, we’re here to bring you the top 3 not to miss.

Hideout kicks off the summer festival season in Zrce, starting on June 26 and going through June 30 this year. Hideout is where music and clubbing aficionados will discover a host of exciting activities, lively music and dance all day and night. Boasting 5 days, 5 nights, over 100 Djs and pool, boat, after parties, we imagine you won’t be getting much sleep.
