The Garden, Tisno, Croatia

Stop Making Sense 2012 just keeps getting better… Announcing a new and very exciting addition to the lineup, this sunshine festival extends beyond the music…

Anomalous Visuals and {ourhistory} present an alternative late-night area at Stop Making Sense 2012 that revitalises the ‘chillout’ space of early club culture. It will feature imagery and ambient soundscapes from Anomalous Visuals alongside classic documentary footage from {ourhistory} archives. Cine A.M. will appear each night between 1am and 3am for those who want to relax under the full moon to a feast of visual wonders. So, for tired out toes and feet, it’s a great chance to kick back and admire some starry skies and stellar AV. ( and

Stop Making Sense 2012 has also added a couple of new names to the lineup… Severino comes along with Dalston Superstore and Deviation invites Josey Rebelle and Mickey Pearce.

Stop Making Sense 2012 presents a stellar lineup of acts from across the dance music spectrum – from jazz, Latin and Afro house, to Chicago via Detroit and techno, through reggae, dubstep and electro – a kaleidoscope of sun, sea and electronic entertainment.

Lil’ Louis / Ron Trent & Chez Damier / Benji B & MC Judah / Adrian Sherwood / A.Skillz / Move D / Steffi / Deetron / Tortured Soul (live) / Jimmy Edgar (live) / The Correspondents (live) and many more…

Stop Making Sense looks stronger than ever – where London, Berlin and Paris collide. The lineup brings together the cream of dance music talent for five days and nights of partying by the sea – with Lil’ Louis, Benji B & MC Judah, Ron Trent & Chez Damier, Move D, A Skillz, Adrian Sherwood, Steffi and Deetron, plus Tortured Soul, Jimmy Edgar and The Correspondents live – and that’s only some of what you can expect!

As well as a bundle of headliners who could hold this five-day party on their own, Stop Making Sense 2012 is serving up a stunning list of DJs and acts, including Dark Sky, Daniel Avery (Stopmakingme), Nick Höppner, Sketchy, Moxie, George Fitzgerald, Etienne Tron, Hannah Holland, Another Amit and Sven Weisemann, and a whole list of others…

The music programme runs 12pm until 1am in Tisno, with two stages, boat parties, a private beach, tiki bars, and much more… From 11pm to 7am, the late-night action continues at the local Barbarella’s open-air club. There’s nothing better than partying under Croatian stars until a steady sunrise takes revellers into a new day of the nonsensical and sublime.

Stop Making Sense is a music and dance festival, a summer haven and a sunshine getaway all rolled into one. But it’s really mostly about a true love of music. Get involved! /!/Stopmak1ngsense / /
