Alongside the main festival stages Soundwave also runs a number of boat parties that embark twice a day on the waters of the beautiful Adriatic Sea, with the Kornati islands only a short distance away expect stunning scenery and sunsets, on top of this the festival also boasts it’s own onsite club to dance the night away under the moonlight at until the early hours.

This year also sees the addition of a beautiful boutique campsite featuring thirty elegant Shikar tents from Jaipur, which bring a great addition of onsite sophistication to the festival. Take a dip in the Sea, pop back to your tent and then meet friends for some locally sourced food at the onsite festival restaurant.

Soundwave has become the summer highlight for a growing number of regulars who return year after year with a third of the tickets selling before any artists are announced. With a handful of festivals starting up in the concrete tourist hotspots across Croatia Soundwave has become the festival synonymous with beauty in addition to its amazing line-up. Soundwave sells out early every year, as ticket numbers are limited to retain its intimate spirit so expect tickets to sell out fast!
