Recommended >> Soundwave Festival, Croatia

The setting is one of a kind: the beach, sea and hills along the Adriatic coast provide the perfect backdrop for a festival that has much to offer for music heads of all ages.

The days are spent lounging around in the sun with dub styles, house and breakbeat classics flowing through the air. You can jump in the water any time, in the evening shuffle your feet on the beach stage where some of the finest house tracks are being played. For those who want to venture out, there are boat cruises with acts like the legendary Channel One Sound System or Jay Electronica providing the soundtrack. Some of the highlights from day three were memorable performances from Andreya Triana, a very short set from Fatima who was backed up by the sounds of Mr Scruff and Alexander Nut on the decks. After midnight it was time to hit Barbarellas club where Robert Luis from Tru Thoughts dropped a heavy set that got people throwing their hands in the sky. Below are a few more impressions from a festival where the only thing missing was a bouncy castle to make the birthday party vibe complete.
