Defected Croatia is an electronic festival set along the idyllic coastline of Tisno, Croatia. With a backdrop of crystal blue waters, the beaches are taken over by the very best in house, disco and underground electronic music from across the international scene.
Building on the success of its first edition, this year welcomes an abundance of innovators to play throughout the evening on the starlit beaches, with the daytime sunshine reserved for soaking in the rays and enjoying the winding streets of Tisno.
Previous names to have performed here include Julio Bashmore, Kenny Dope, Basement Jaxx (DJ Set), Dennis Ferrer, Roger Sanchez, Nick Curly, Osunlade, Nightmares On Wax and many more.
Official Announcement: With our Loyalty Early Bird tickets for Defected Croatia 2017 now sold out, we are excited to announce Phase 1 of the line-up for next year’s event, which is already shaping up to be another show-stopping moment in the calendar. The Main Stage, Beach Parties, Boat Parties and Barbarella’s will all be in full effect, hosting truly world-class DJs.
A man who needs little introduction, hitmaker MK joins us in Croatia, while returning to Tisno after his incredible headline set this year is house music legend Dennis Ferrer, who is also the man behind our 500th release and rocked our D500 party at Ministry Of Sound in style on November 5th.
Joining him on the Main Stage is fellow house master and club favourite Todd Terry, who will be making his Defected Croatia debut. Man of the moment Eats Everything will also be making his first appearance at the festival, alongside heavyweight house stars Julio Bashmore, Roger Sanchez, Joey Negro and Sandy Rivera. More exciting additions to the line-up are Crookers and Soul Clap, who bring their own unique flavour to The Garden Resort after a huge twelve months of touring and releases. DJ Spen and Karizma return after their jaw-dropping sets this summer to play multiple stages, including together as Deepah Ones, with Eli Escobar, Riva Starr and Purple Disco Machine all joining us again after shining at this year’s event.
Following a ground-breaking 12 months for the label and artists individually, all of the Defected family will be there in full effect – including Sonny Fodera, Sam Divine, Franky Rizardo and Luke Solomon. We are also delighted to be joined by Fred Everything, Josh Butler, Dario D’Attis, Dennis Cruz and many more, including the boss – Simon Dunmore.
Early Bird tickets are selling fast and this is only the first wave of acts, with more of the biggest and best house DJs waiting to be added in Phase 2…
Remember, the dates are Thursday 10th – Tuesday 15th August, making it SIX days, up from five in 2016, spread across the Main Stage, Beach Stage, Boat Parties and Barbarella’s.
