The Garden Resort, Tisno is a true slice of paradise in Croatia, home to some of the most beautiful and unspoilt coastline in Europe. Azure Adriatic waters, shimmering sandy beaches, guaranteed sunshine, exquisite sunsets and star-lit night skies make for a fantastic festival setting where The Garden’s natural amphitheatre rolls gently into the surrounding forest-covered hills. Located just a short walk or water taxi ride from the historic old town of Tisno, which has many waterside bars, cafés and restaurants, the site itself not only has a true festival feel but retains an intimacy so often missing from many modern-day electronic music festivals.
Tisno is conveniently located halfway between the cities of Zadar (45mins) and Split (60 mins), which are both served by international airports. Low-cost airlines such as Croatia Airlines, EasyJet, Monarch, Jet 2, Germanwings and Ryanair fly in from over 50 destinations across Europe. Full airport transfers will also be available.
The Garden Resort offers a range of on-site accommodation options to suit all budgets. Overlooking the bay are 80 air-conditioned apartments all with balconies or terraces, an exotic selection of iconic Airstream trailers or glamorous wooden yachts moored in the festival bay, there’s luxury boutique camping in stunning Indian Shikar tents, as well as a Podpads and DIY camping. Wherever you choose to stay, you’ll be surrounded by like-minded souls, all just seconds from the action.
