Techno greats under the summer rays

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.
