Summer festival season is fast approaching, and we’re kicking things off right with our own stage at Lighthouse Festival on the beautiful Lanterna peninsula in Croatia. Led by Vienna’s Pratersauna, Lighthouse boasts a wide variety of electronic artists and bands, many of them near and dear to us, including EB family members Hercules & Love Affair Soundsystem (featuring Andy Butler, pictured above, plus MCs), Wolfram, 7 Citizens, and Modeselektor. Also on the bill are Âme, HVOB, Jimpster, and Round Table Knights, but we recommend checking out Lighthouse’s artist page and following their Facebook to keep abreast of it all!
What makes Lighthouse such a unique festival isn’t just the music—the whole experience is treated like a luxury rave resort for the most discerning electronic music fan. You can spend the early evening at sunset boat parties, practice your tennis game with the Vienna-based Dish Crew (register for that here), watch the Champions League Final, discover new music with label showcases, and experience some of the best local cuisine with fantastic restaurants as well as a Friday/Saturday grill and BBQ session, located directly at the EB arena. Best of all, the ticket price includes accommodation of your choice and budget, so there’s no hassle with hostels! Tickets are now on sale but they’re limited and the booking deadline is May 20th—bungalows and hotels are already sold out, but there are some apartments left, so we suggest acting fast.~
To get you warmed up, here’s a new video from HVOB:
