Klaxons and Sasha are the two first headline names on what promises to be an ambitious and eclectic line-up, running through dance, electro, indie and rock. Finally, the values that organisers have always stuck to ensure a more than accessible ticket price for all.

Rijeka Station provides rail links throughout Croatia. The town is within a 2h drive of four airports including Rijeka, Pula, Trieste and Zagreb. The latter is Croatia’s main international transport hub.
