During this growth, Soundwave has also distilled and refined its ideal of what a festival should be about – it’s a world away from muddy fields, long queues and over-stuffed events, instead set in a sizzling climate on an truly beautiful and intimate coastal location in Tisno, where long lazy days stretch into more energetic and hedonistic nights.
Having already revealed their most adventurous and ambitious lineup to date, Soundwave is now very proud to announce its series of 13 boat parties taking place in July. The shimmering waters of the immense Adriatic form the backdrop to the festival, with The Garden’s gently sloping site leading all the way to its pristine beach. Whether it’s the incandescent sun’s rays glittering on the surface by day or the luminous face of the moon and stars by night, the voyages are simply an essential element of Soundwave, whose richness and diversity spreads across the soundscape; covering broken beat, reggae, afro to acid jazz, hip-hop, soul, funk, drum and bass and more, the festival is a harmonious and beatific escape which seamlessly merges a sublime holiday and musical escape like no other. The voyages take place during the day and night, and tickets are on sale now.

Blessed with crystal-clear azure Adriatic waters, sizzling sunshine and star-lit night skies, the idyllic and intimate Garden Resort setting welcomes a global crowd of music lovers and adventure seekers to the beautiful town of Tisno, with lots of great places to stay and sumptuous food and drink.
The site itself has the incredible water-side beach bar, where you are so close to the sea you are almost dancing in it, and cosy curl of beach which looks out over the bay. The site’s main stage is a little way behind, perfect for headline acts, and nearby nestled under the canopy of trees is the Olive Grove stage. It’s a beautiful location, everything built around nature, growing like the environment around it, rich with intimacy and a sense of wonder. And a short drive away is the incredible Barbarella’s club, a fully open air space powered by Funkion One.
There’s snorkelling, diving and fishing to enjoy, or a visit to the surrounding islands is easy by renting a small boat and a trip to one of the immensely beautiful nearby national parks such as Krka and Kornati, with the historic cities of Zadar and Split close by too.
