From May 24th–26th, electronic music decamps to Croatia’s Lighthouse Festival. This year the festival has teamed up with Electronic Beats and takes place in the scenic Lanterna peninsula; led by Vienna’s Pratersauna and a wide variety of electronic artists and bands, many of them near and dear to us, including EB family members Hercules & Love Affair Soundsystem, Wolfram, 7 Citizens, and Modeselektor. Also on the bill are Oliver Koletzki, Niconé & Sascha Braemer, Jimpster, and Round Table Knights, but we recommend checking out Lighthouse’s artist page and following their Facebook to keep abreast of it all—the lineup is still only 50% complete!
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, 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! Early Bird tickets are now on sale but they’re limited, so we suggest acting fast.~
