When spring draws to a close, and summer begins to sizzle up, one of Europe’s newest and most highly-anticipated festivals will be reaching the shores of Croatia. Soundwave Music Festival, possibly one of the year’s most relaxing festivals, will take place at “The Garden” in Tisno, Croatia from the 18th to 22nd of July. The breathtaking site, which consists of a nicely nestled stretch of green grass, and a sun-kissed beach that meets the Adriatic sea, will host some of the biggest names in music.
Since its initial inception back in 2009, Soundwave has made its mark on the festival map by hosting artists such as De la Soul, Little Dragon, Ghostpoet, and many more. As anyone who has visited the festival before will tell you, Soundwave hosts a wide array of musical stylings on the sunny island, from jazz, electronic, hip-hop and even reggae — perfectly complimenting the laid-back atmosphere of the festival.
The lineup that will be gracing the stage for this year’s event, is headlined by Britain’s electronic legend, Bonobo. In addition, Bonobo will be joined by hip-hop heavyweight MF DOOM, DJ Shadow, Lapalux, Robert Glasper, Quantic, Ghostpoet, Alice Russel, Riot Jazz and many, many more.
However, for this year’s festival, Soundwave have decided to shake things up and take it to the next level, by adding of a series of Launch Parties that will take place across Europe’s biggest cities — the last of which will be held in London on the 26th of May. At London’s world-renowned venue, XOYO Club, artists from Ninjatune, Soundcrash, Hyponik, Tempo Clash, Work It, Wah Wah 45s, First World Records, and Keep Up will be mixing the tunes to get people geared up for the festival!
