Love International Croatia Announces First Names
Love International is the spiritual successor of the acclaimed original Croatian odyssey, The Garden Festival, and seeks to build upon the decade’s worth of magic created already in the region. By day a harmonious holiday beneath the sizzling sun, and by dusk as the beats shift gear and introduce each balmy night beneath a canopy of stars, the intimate setting holds a unique energy, sound tracked by some of the world’s leading underground DJs and producers, drawing a vibrant and diverse audience from across the world to this tiny strip of paradise.
Dixon is one the esteemed Innervisions’ lynchpins and cited as one of electronic music’s most important DJs and producers, whilst Motor City Drum Ensemble, Ben UFO, Gerd Janson, Craig Richards, Joy Orbison, Midland and Horse Meat Disco bring their own party mayhem. Add to this Prosumer is a mercurial master behind the decks, whilst Hunee – one of the year’s biggest stars – segues all kinds of genres across his scintillating sets. Many people’s favourite place, Barbarella’s, is nestled just a few miles away; a fully open air club which is now regarded as one of the best in the world, a simply breath-taking place to party from midnight and see the sun’s rise at dawn, breaking over the ridge of pine trees which surround it. Every DJ who has played here says it is one of the most amazing settings they have experienced.
Dave Harvey, one of Love International’s founders, explains that: “We are feeling really great about Love International and continuing the great work The Garden Festival family created here over the last ten years. What we are doing is going to have its own vibe and some new elements, but at the same time we are seeking to retain and embrace what made The Garden so good – that family feel to it all, everyone knowing everyone else, all set in this incredible site on the coast. For us it’s about continuing that growth in our own way, so people who came to The Garden will find Love International familiar to them, but at the same time it will be a new experience. We feel we have got some great names onboard for our first announcement, with loads more to come in January.”
Many more names will be announced in the New Year, along with boat and club parties and exciting new elements to Love International.
