Total Croatia News

The Garden Resort in Tisno recently started another summer season full of festival activities, in which they hope to attract over 20,000 visitors!

It started as one festival, but it grew over the years and in 2019 there will be 6 international festival events during July and August. The bay with a perfect beach is one of the most amazing festival stages in Europe, and it attracts visitors from all over the world to their more intimate musical events. Nick Colgan, the owner of the destination and the Garden Resort brand says that 2019 will be their best season yet, in terms of the number of visitors, and that they’ve secured the contract for the next 3 years, which means that their events will be held at the same place at least until 2022. Their concept of a vacation with the musical background attracts visitors from over 40 countries, and Love International is a perfect addition to their concept. The Garden Resort and the event held there during the summer are crucial for the tourism of Tisno and the area, as people from all over the world know about Tisno as the location where Garden Resort is located, Ivan Klarin, municipal head adds. In 2019, they added another festival, Fuliranje (which is well-known to anyone who’s recently visited Advent in Zagreb).

The festival season in Tisno has begun with Love International Festival, organized for the fourth year by Dave Harvey and Tom Paine, which closes tomorrow. Many of the DJs that perform at the festival stay a bit longer, make a vacation out of it, because they enjoy Tisno so much.

After Love International, Hospitality On The Beach drum’n’bass festival is next, starting on July 11th, and after that the famous and long-lasting SunceBeat festival starts on July 24, celebrating their tenth anniversary in Croatia. In early August Fuliranje na Moru (Seaside Fuliranje) starts, August 8th is the first day of Defected Croatia house festival. The final festival of the season is Dekmantel Selectors, starting on August 22nd.

The list of the performers for these festivals is long, and here are just some of them: Peggy Gou, DJ Harvey, Optimo, Jan Kinčl & Regis Kattie, Adriatic Coasting Team from Garden, Andy C, Noisia, High Contrast David Morales, Gilles Peterson, Jayda G, Armand Van Helden, Denis Ferrer, Roger Sanchez, Ben UFO, DJ Marcelle, Objekt, Darko Rundek & Ekipa, Urban & 4, Goran Bare with Majke, Parni Valjak, Vojko V.

Nick Colgan added that they’re constantly improving the venue, that they have new mobile homes in The Garden Resort, glamping capabilities in the camp, hostel etc, and that currently over 600 people can be accommodated at the location of the festival, while the others are located in Tisno and the surrounding area. This year they’re working even harder than ever at preserving the nature of the location, as they’ve procured the biodegradable cups and utensils, and are working with beer can vendor on the project “Each Can Counts”, trying to teach people of the importance of recycling. Their goal is to completely remove any plastic from the location.

The Guardian once put Tisno on their list of top ten best European festival locations, and the people working on the Garden Resort experience are doing their best to keep it that way! Find out more information about the festivals here.
