Croatia has recently become one of the most popular European destinations. The amount of tourists coming to this Mediterranean country has been increasing significantly in the last decade. A combination of over 1000 islands with well indented coast and ideal weather makes Croatia a perfect festival destination. Therefore, music events play a huge role in the country’s tourism. Today, there are dozens of them. Majority are situated ashore and on the islands. However, there are some events which take place on the land, like the InMusic festival in Zagreb. Festival season usually starts in May and ends in late September. This is possible because of the mild weather, which keeps extending the summer season. As for the festival types – basically there is something for everyone. EDM music is most covered, as are hip-hop and rock/pop festivals. Islands are the most common location where festivals take place. A good example of that are the Hideout festival and Sonus festival on Zrce beach. Another popular destination is Garden Tisno resort, hosting several festivals like Suncebeat, Outlook festival and Defected Croatia.

Croatian Festivals & COVID-19
Coronavirus pandemic postponed or cancelled majority of the events. Only a handful of smaller, regional festivals took place in summer 2020. Others were postponed for similar dates in 2021. Organizers usually offered ticket refunds for anyone who bought the ticket before the pandemic started. If you are one of them, be sure to check if you’re eligible for a money return. For anyone who did not ask for a refund, your ticket is probably valid for the event in 2021.
