To be part of the Sonus celebration, grabtickets now from just €179, and act fast as Early Bird and Tier 1 have already sold out.

Set by the shores of the idyllic Adriatic sea, this years edition sees Sonus’ extended artists family rally together for it’s strongest year to date, and the newest additions are massive.

Zurich duo Adriatique bring a distinctive blend of European and US house, in addition to euphoric grooves from Andrea Ljekaj, and a highly-anticipated first appearance at Sonus from Maeve records founder Mano Le Tough, master of eclecticism and versatility.

Established party-starter Andrologic adds to the birthday proceedings, plus [a:rpia:r] regulars, the elusive Dan Andrei and Rhadoo, delivering trademark trippy Romanian sound alongside Serbian stalwart Dejan Milicevic, who brings two decades of expertise to Pag Island.


Also find Club der Visionäre resident Janina on board to impress and Julia Govor and K.O.D (Cabanne & Lowris’s collaborative project) are set for their Sonus debut.

Welcomed back to Sonus Festival’s stages with open arms are Berghain resident and Ostgut Ton maestro Len Faki, Italian mainstay Luigi Madonna and techno craftsman Maceo Plex.

Flying the flag for the Croatia underground, local talent comes from Sonus family members Felver, Homeboy, Mariano Mateljan and Marina Karamarko, each presenting a local flavour of electronic music.


Across the sites three venues, Kalypso, Aquarius and Papaya you’ll be able to catch Perlon affiliate Margaret Dygas, Diynamic head honcho Solomun plus an adventurous live show from Minus family member Matador.

Of course, godfather of the scene Sven Väth brings his expert selections to the dance, as our favourite leading lady tINI and her gang. Basically, it’s the underground elite gathered in one place for five straight days.

All this on top of the already announced acts including Adam Beyer, Pan-Pot, Joseph Capriati, Rødhåd, The Martinez Brothers, Seth Troxler and more – it’s all set up to make the five year celebration a party of the highest order.
