Festivals in Croatia 2021

A detailed, updated list of all confirmed festivals in Croatia in 2021.

Coronavirus pandemic has cancelled or postponed the majority of Croatian festivals in 2020. So far, most of the festival organizers have announced the dates for 2021 editions. These dates are usually similar to the ones in previous years. As for the lineups, they are still a work in progress for most festivals. As the summer of 2021 approaches, more and more artists will be announced. Since there are numerous festivals in Croatia, we have created a full list of festivals in Croatia in 2021 for easy navigation. Even if you have strict plans about which festivals to visit, maybe this list will inspire you to attend other events in Croatia. Festivals are divided by region and by month. Make sure to check the map of festivals at the end of the post.

Croatian Festivals By Region

We have divided festivals by each region, so you can see better where each of them takes place. Dalmatia region covers everything from Dubrovnik to Zadar area. The Istria & Kvarner region is located in the northwest part of the country. And other festivals which don’t take place on the coast, we’ve put those in the mainland section. 

Dalmatia Region

Dalmatia is the most popular Croatian region, as the largest number of tourists visits its islands and cities. No wonder most festivals are located in this region.

Istria Region

Due to its position, Istria is a very popular region in regards to festival organization. Majority of Istrian festivals were located in Pula. However, a lot of festivals were relocated to other parts of the coast. Nonetheless, it’s just a matter of time when Istria will return its position among most desirable festival locations.

Islands

Croatian has over 1000 islands, so it’s no surprise they welcome dozens of music festivals. Pag Island and its Zrce Beach is the most popular destination, but there are several other islands where festivals are hosted.

Mainland

Croatia has a lot more to offer than just a beautiful sea, plenty of sun and hundreds of islands. In fact, a lot of festivals in the summer are held in the mainland. Zagreb is the leader in that category, with several other festivals held in smaller cities. Even without the sea, you can still find ways to enjoy your stay in the mainland cities, when there’s not so much crowd around.
