Soundwave Festival Croatia is lauded by those in the know as Croatia’s best kept secret and THE must do under the radar festival on the European calendar.Organised and promoted by the UK’s most boundary pushing promoter collectives Soundcrash and New Bohemia, the festival showcases the most in-demand leftfield artists of our time all set on the Adriatic Coast in the beautiful 900 year old white wash walled Croatian fishing village of Petrcane.
Soundwave offers a wonderful alternative to the UK’s rain soaked festivals. Beach bars, boat parties, an outdoor Amphitheatre and nightclubs offer an array of all day entertainment.
