Here's your chance to win a pair of double whammy weekend tickets to Garden Festival Croatia as well as £100 to spend behind the bar and a festival t-shirt.
That's right, one lucky reader will win passes for them and a friend to attend both weekends (2-11 July) of the Croatian festival. Not only that, but they'll be given £100 worth of spending money for the bar and a t-shirt so they can brag about it all when they get home.
The Garden Festival in Petrcane, Croatia, has evolved into one of the most unique propositions around, frequented by those looking for something a little different. Combining holiday with hedonism, music with beach-side fun, new friends with old faces and a warm, intimate and family-friendly environment, it has set itself apart from many European offerings. With an emphasis on laid back vibes during the sun-kissed day and a more up-tempo feel during the evening and long into the night, it embodies the atmosphere of a small and perfectly formed festival, combined with a holiday sensation that is hard to beat. Set in a beautiful 900 year old fishing village, it’s impossible not to resist the area’s charms, from waking up and wandering down to catch breakfast in the shade, to dining out either locally or in the stunning nearby city, Zadar.
Nestled on a narrow peninsular jutting into the seductive Adriatic waters, the Garden Festival features full on live shows on the outdoor main stage, all day and all night beach side antics in the Tiki Bar, twice daily Argonaughty Boat Parties and intimate club sessions in Barbarellas Discotheque. Attracting sun and fun seekers from all over Europe for a resounding antidote to the more prosaic mainstream, derivative and oversold options, The Garden Festival is one of the most inspiring, enchanting and fun-filled festivals on the planet. Guests this year include playing live 2020 Soundsystem, Crazy P, Henrik Schwarz, Tensnake and Trojan Sound System. DJs include Ame, Andy Blake, Daddy G, Dave Beer, Dixon, Floating Points, Greg Wilson, Harri and Domenic, Horse Meat Disco, James Holroyd, Jimpster, Metro Area (Darshan Jesrani), Phat Phil Cooper, Sebo K, Seth Troxler, Shur-i-kan, Stu Patterson, Terry Farley, The Revenge and many, many more.
Croatia itself has enjoyed a bumper year as a travel destination, offering everything from secluded coves and deserted stretches of pristine beach to historic and vibrant cities, succulent sea-food and an enriching culture of old and new. Many of those who attend the Garden Festival take time out to explore some of this inspiring and seductive country too. With plentiful flight options from around the UK, The Garden Festival is easily accessible throughout the summer – more info can be found on the website. There are also countless accommodation options available, fine eateries and bars to indulge in, and so much to see and do in what is a truly stunning location along the Croatian coast, with many adventures waiting to be found in national parks, secluded islands and bustling historical cities.
