Croatia's sun-drenched urban beach festival

Fresh Island Festival is Europe's number one urban beach festival, held each summer on Croatia's Zrće beach. The festival takes place in its huge, open-air clubs and aboard boats on the clear blue Adriatic sea.

Attracting the best names in the scene, such as Giggs, Rae Sremmurd and French Montana, Fresh Island has become the go-to summer getaway for urban music lovers. 

The festival even impressed Snoop Dogg & Madcon so much that the pair decided to film the video for their single Is You With Me during their visit. 

Now regarded as Ibiza's biggets rival, Croatia's Zrće Beach has become synonymous with the festival season, thanks to its abundance of mega-clubs and non-stop party atmosphere.

BY PLANE: The nearest airport is Zadar, which is 87km away and is around an hour from the festival. The island is of course reachable from other airports but it is recommended you fly to Zadar if you can.

Once you have arrived in Croatia, you can board an airport transfer bus to the site's nearest town Novalja, which departs firstly at 09:00 and then every four hours. From there a short shuttle bus will run to and from the festival. 

You must be at least 18.
