Every single weekend this summer, it seems, there is something new on for Brits in need of a holiday in the sun with rave benefits in Croatia. Numerous parties running at Petrcane's The Garden Location, Hideout and Club Papaya on the Island of Pag and, for the bass-hungry among us, there is Outlook at Pula (1st-4th September) to name but a few.
This year, with the opening of the Harbour Stage and the unveiling of a renovated historical moat within the grounds of an 18th century fortress, Outlook promises to blow expectations completely out the water. In addition to the usual explosion of mind-mangling basslines on chest-thumping soundsystems, ravers can mash up, mong out and lay back within the breathtaking surroundings of Fort Punta Christo - it's wooded hills, crystal-clear sea and panoramic view of the city of Pula.
In addition to being opportunely located near the highly anticipated boat parties, the Harbour Stage will be blessed by monumental performances from the likes of dub legend Barrington Levy, dubstep heavyweights Skream and Benga, reggae vet David Rodigan, US hip hop artist Pharoahe Monch, Jamie XX and hundred of others acts. Find the full line up listed below.
