The 10th (& Final) Garden Festival Croatia Will Take Place In 2015

Croatia’s original, founding and truly inspirational festival has decided to finish on a high, with a final chapter next summer ending an amazing 10 year run in Croatia over the 1st to the 8th July.

A celebratory blend of holiday and festival as one, Garden has become the destination for a global audience seeking something a little left-of-centre. And this incredible event has inspired the now thriving Croatian scene. The beautiful boutique odyssey has become one of the world’s most idyllic festival settings.

Legendary boat parties on The Argonaughty and Arbiana across the dazzling Adriatic, dancing under the sun and stars at the main stage with the incredible water-side Beach Bar and partying by the trees at the new Olive Grove Stage are all part of an enchanting, unique and joyous experience.

Also this summer, the simply stunning and fully outdoor Barbarella’s Discotheque has really come into its own, for the first time hosting a season of parties in addition to all of the festival events, curated by Ibiza icon Mark Broadbent.

So with this year’s Garden Festival now finished, a sublime seven days and nights in the picture postcard town of Tisno featuring standout performances from the likes of Theo Parrish’s Teddy’s Get Down, Prosumer, Wolf and Lamb, Soul Clap, Francois K, Craig Richards, Greg Wilson, Ben UFO and many more, the focus is now set on the momentous concluding year in the festival’s history.

Nick Colgan, one of the Garden’s founders, explains that, “It is true that we have decided next year will be our last ever Garden Festival. It's a decision we have thought long and hard over and do not make lightly, yet we all feel the time is right to conclude what has been an incredible adventure for everyone involved. We started in 2006 with just 300 people in Petrcane, and since then we have helped create this incredible scene in Croatia, with so many other festivals now spread across the country."

"It feels like we have got a bit of a legacy to leave in Tisno, and this is something which we are truly proud of; and rest assured 2015 will end with a bang as we will be creating the best Garden yet! We will then continue to put all of our efforts into managing and refining The Garden Tisno site, for the other festivals here and we hope some new events too which will be announced in due course. We will be very sad to finish, but we also know there is a very exciting future ahead too."

"For now we would like to thank everyone who has joined us under the sun and stars here, not just this year but at every previous festival too, to all of the amazing people from all over the world who have come to party with us and of course the brilliant DJs and live acts who have helped shaped The Garden Festival from day one. You all know who you are!"

"More news for next year will come soon and we really hope everyone can make it, this is going to be really special. I should add that year’s event has been brilliant too – we just all need a bit of a rest now!”

Tickets are on sale now for the last ever Garden Festival at the website.
