Croatia Chosen To Host World’s Leading Music Festival

Ultra Music Festival, one the most famous music festivals in the world, is coming to Croatia. From 12-14 July 2013 the festival will be held in the Dalmatian city of Split and also on the island of Hvar. Croatia was chosen out of 16 countries by the event’s organisers, and it will be home to the music spectacular for the next 5 years.

Split’s Poljud stadium and Amfora Grand Beach Resort on Hvar will host some of the world’s best DJ’s. Electronic music lovers from around the globe are expected to descend on the Croatian coast, with more than 60,000 fans expected bringing in millions of dollars of revenue.

“Electronic music is one of the most popular and fastest growing music genres in the world, and Ultra Music Festival is regarded as its leading festival. The excellent reputation that Split and Hvar have as first class tourist destinations that are known throughout the world made our decision to select Croatia an easy one,” said Russel Faibisch from festival organisers Ultra Enterprises. Madonna and Black Eyed Peas have been performed recently at Ultra Music Festival.
