Soundwave Festival Croatia is lauded by those in the know as Croatia’s best kept secret and THE must do under the radar festival
on the European calendar, Organised and promoted by the UK’s most boundary pushing promoter collectives Soundcrash and New Bohemia
, the festival showcases the most in-demand leftfield artists of our time all set on the Adriatic Coast in the beautiful 900 year old white wash walled Croatian fishing village of Petrcane
Soundwave offers a wonderful alternative to the UK’s rain soaked festivals. Beach bars, boat parties, an outdoor Amphitheatre and nightclubs offer an array of all day entertainment.

Kick back and relax, listen to sound of the wind blowing through the trees, the Waves gently lapping on the beach as smiling people dance under the clear starry sky. Sun kissed days and balmy nights full to the brim of the best music, laughter with friends and an infectious familiar feeling from the heady days of hedonism from Ibiza’s infamous Summer’s of love and that is just the nighttimes. Soundwave by day, flower’s into a Sun Music worshiper’s paradise. A beautiful private beach, an array of superbly curated boat parties and outside Amphitheatre performances roll into an endless offering of sonic bedazzlements.
