5 Reasons why you should join Dimensions Festival
Over the years Croatia has been home to many important electronic music events. It really comes as no surprise that the music scene is expanding. One of its most recent festivals, Dimensions Festival, takes place in a small village called Stinjan, near Pula. The festival is spread over 12 stages around the coastline of the Adriatic Sea, inside Fort Punta Christo, an ancient Roman fort. During this four-day event, over 100 international acts had been performed.
From rocky beaches to stunning blue waters, from exclusive boat parties to colossal stages, from newly discovered talents to now legendary pioneers – Dimensions has it all!
Here are 5 reasons why you should join Dimensions Festival:
- The opening concert
Every year at Dimensions Festival, the opening concert takes place in Pula’s ancient Roman amphitheater. The 2000-year-old monument hosted performances from legendary Grace Jones, Berlin’s super-group Moderat, Brownswood’s cosmic adventurers Yussef Kamal, and award-winning drummer, composer and producer, Moses Boyd, who presented his Solo X Show.
- Best music selectors
Dimensions Festival’s line-up features some of the best selectors from around the world. Outstanding music sets came from artists like Dam-Funk, Nina Kraviz, Marcel Dettmann, Jeff Mills,Antal, Interstellar Funk, SadarBahar& Lee Collins, Sassy J, Mr Ties, Ben UFO, Pearson Sound, Joy Orbison, Dan Shake, Theo Parrish, Danny Krivit and DJ Okapi.
American musician Dam–Funk fit in perfectly at Dimensions Festival, having been on tour this summer in Europe. His two-hour set had revived old school beats and hip-hop. He rocked The Clearing stage with infamous tracks like Faden Away and Hood Pass Intact.
- Top live acts
Dimensions Festival offers multiple choices of live shows. The electronic sphere consisted this year of two key performances – Romare and Floating Points.
Romare’s brought to the table an introspective show. The uncertainty of synthesizers and downtempo tunes led by deep vocals felt like the concert itself make the time stop.
Floating Points, who stretched the spectrum with distorted alarms and aggressive beats, is clearly one of the best live acts of this century. Not only did he perfectly blend electronic and dance music, but the concert was exploratory, too, teleporting the audience, as it were, into another dimension.
- Beach parties
During the day at Dimensions Festival you can enjoy music on The Beach stage; even go for a dip into the sea, or just relax. Everybody comes here to chill out and enjoy the show. The parties were hosted by DJ Okapi, Dam-Funk (live), Moses Boys Solo X (live), Antal, Amp Fiddler and others.
- Knowledge Arena
The Knowledge Arena is an interactive workspace where aspiring musicians get the chance to gain and expand their musical experience. Its programme consists of free-play workstations using the latest production equipment. The role is educational and to open discussions, keynote interviews with experts and festival artists, like Ata Kak, Mr. Ties, Dam-Funk, SadarBahar& Lee Collins, and many more.
Dimensions Festival will convince you that Croatia is the number one best holiday destination for all generations. The festival received world-wide attention six years in a row and is at the center of Croatia’s cultural growth.
