The number of festivals on Croatia's Adriatic coast seems to be on an exponential rise, and rightly so. The combination of gorgeous weather and great dance music at a much more reasonable price than many UK festivals can't fail to impress. This year the team behind Outlook, one of the biggest Croatian offerings, surprised everyone by announcing a second festival at the same stunning site, to take place the following week. Say hello to Dimensions.
The music on offer is of a more refined and stripped down nature than its sister Outlook, featuring artists from the darker, minimal side of dubstep and drum and bass- such as Exit Recordings and Tectonic- and throwing in a collection of some of the biggest names in the Techno & Bass Music spectrum such as Levon Vincent, Boddika and Carl Craig. This all takes place in the iconic Fort Punta Christa, undoubtably one of the finest festival sites in the world.
As for Mancunian representation you can check Dub Phizix, Akkord, Synkro, Indigo, Versa, Lone, Zed Bias and Bane. There are stages and boat parties curated by our good friends at Eastern Bloc Records and Selective Hearing which are sure to be excellent. Check out the Dimensions site for all the info about tickets travel and accommodation, along with guest mixes to whet your appetite.
In the meantime the Selective Hearing guys are hosting the Manchester and Leeds launch parties for Dimensions to get you in the mood: You can catch 2562, Indigo and Tom Diciccio, along with Versa, Bane and more at Islington Mill in July. In Leeds they have Pariah, Akkord and Guy Andrews playing on Friday 8th June.
If you can't make the parties,check this mix from Night Owl to get you started!
