Outlook Festival is a celebration of soundsystem culture, exploring the musical genealogy that connects Jamaican roots music to its modern day counterparts, through heavyweight soundsystems, in a friendly, warm and inspiring peninsular, sea-side location. There are over 400 acts playing in and around the 150 year old Fort Punta Christo, a 1km stretch of beach, and a world of intimate boat parties.
Croatia’s iconic celebration of bass music culture Outlook returns for its 8th year this summer from September 2nd – 6th. Taking place at the stunning Fort Punta Christo on the Adriatic coastline near Pula, Outlook has become synonymous with spearheading the region’s thriving festival scene, uniting music lovers from across the world for an unrivalled adventure under the sizzling sun and stars. Outlook Festival is the largest Bass music and Soundsystem Culture festival in Europe, featuring the biggest names from the most vibrant and cutting edge dance scenes around.
When we talk about bass music we don’t mean the bastardised commercial version currently being sold to children, we mean underground dancefloor music, whether it be house, techno, dubstep, reggae, dub, hiphop, garage, grime, electronica. . . . . . as Duke Ellington put it “There are two kinds of music. Good music, and the other kind.” Now approaching its seventh year, Outlook has grown rapidly and is going from strength to strength! Anyone who has come to any of the last 7 Outlooks will tell you how amazing the vibe was, how wicked the music was, how beautiful the smiling people were and how stunning the setting is.
Dimensions Festival returns to Croatia for its fourth season this August at the spectacular Fort Punta Christo, a 19th century abandoned complex perched above the shimmering Adriatic Sea below, and has just revealed its first round of names over August 27th – 30th.
Dimensions’ ethos takes a purist’s approach with its revered music policy, seeking only the finest purveyors of house, techno, jazz, funk, soul, drum and bass, psych and more orchestrated by the scene’s leading DJs, producers, remixers, labels and collectives. There are no concessions made to transient fads or flashes in the pan; this is all about artists dedicated to their craft who really bring something special to the festival. Dimension’s setting is an intimate labyrinth of spaces and passages, of nooks and crannies, leading to an incredible array of environments with world-class sound systems. It is one of Europe’s true bastions of electronic music culture, and now reveals its first round of artists.
