Sonus Festival is a 5-day techno party at Zrce Beach, Novalja, in Croatia. The creators of Time Warp are at the helm for 5 days of techno and house music royalty.
Zrce's Aquarius, Kalypso and Papaya clubs host day and night stages, while boat parties take things out over the stunning Adriatic Sea.
Each day's lineup features more world stars and pioneers than you'd find on most full festival programmes across Europe, and the sun-soaked setting only adds to the electric escapism.
Zrce Beach is home to some of the very best festivals in the world. With white, sandy beaches and crystal blue waters, it is Croatia's festival paradise.
The nearest airport to the festival is Zadar Airport, around 50km away, and is served by destinations across much of Europe. If you’re travelling from Italy and Spain, you’ll have to fly to Split Airport, 200km from the festival. Airport transfers to the festival are available.
