The Best Music Festivals In Croatia

The Best Music Festivals In Croatia

Nothing compares to a festival. Escaping the stresses of life, the warm joy when this music starts and seeing thousands of strangers who love music as much as you do, it's heaven on earth. What else is needed?

Well, to tell the truth, we wouldn't have good weather. Probably the worst part of going to a music festival is looking up at the sky and figuring out whether to wear a t-shirt, hoodie, or waterproof coat.

If you think the same way, Croatia could call in 2023. With sunny skies, beautiful beaches, lots of parties and the most sophisticated line-ups you've ever seen, Croatia has become a dance music mecca over the past decade.

To help you choose from the many festivals in Croatia, we've listed the best deals below. If electronic tunes get your heart pumping, it's worth a try. So we're stuck.

Do you like underground bass rumbling through your bones? Membrain is a small festival organized by bass lovers aiming to grow their community while preserving the original spirit that sparked the underground bass movement. While we don't have a 2023 schedule yet, the festival regularly showcases the scene's hottest names and newcomers.

In Membrain, this vibe has been compared to old-school rave, but they also move with the times, pushing the boundaries and exploring the possibilities of the underground bass sound. All of this takes place in Martinsk, a typically Croatian paradise of sun, sea and lush pine trees. Totally amazing if you ask us.
