Sonus is Croatia’s most authentic underground house and techno festival, offering an escapist mix of adventure travel and music for the ultimate destination holiday experience. Sonus just announced the dates and line-up for its return to its idyllic home of Zrce Beach August 18-22 for its 11th year.
Sonus curation once again offers an industry leading mix of new school stars, established pioneers and flag bearing local talent, all bringing their best to beachfront stages with the world-class sound systems the event is known for.
Sonus was one of the first international events to arrive in Croatia and it has remained at the forefront of the Adriatic movement ever since thanks to its “in music and nature we trust” ethos. The event attracts a wide reaching crowd of music lovers, travellers and professional party people, connecting the international community with that of its host locale. It’s an event produced by ravers, for ravers, with every detail taken care of in spectacular fashion – from production and curation, to sound and visuals.
Zrce Beach on Pag Island spills into the Adriatic Sea, offering stunning views over the glistening waters, with breathtaking sunrises and sunsets each day, adding an extra sense of drama to each party. One ticket gets access to all three clubs for five days and five nights, plus more than 15 parties, which means the dancing never stops. Additional passes are also available for boat parties, and a special pre-festival opening event with Alignment, BIIA and Shlømo on August 17th.
On the techno front, these include the likes of Drumcode boss and global techno titan Adam Beyer, revered Berghain duo Ben Klock b2b Marcel Dettmann and hard-edged sounds from Dax J. The melodic techno of Italian star Deborah De Luca will be sure to get people under her spell, alongside blistering beats from Héctor Oaks and I Hate Models, and masterful Neapolitan loops from Music On’s Marco Carola.
There will be tastemaking sounds from breakout Spanish DJ Indira Paganotto, mind-melting minimal from cult heroes Seth Troxler, Ricardo Villalobos and Richie Hawtin, plus much more from the likes of Detroit’s Robert Hood and DJ Holographic. Expect colourful curveballs from Cocoon ringleader Sven Väth, hard techno and acid lover Reinier Zonneveld live, and stunning synth-heavy soundscapes from the revered Stephan Bodzin live.
House and all its variants are equally well represented with Ibiza favourite Joseph Capriati, heavy low ends from Desolat founder Loco Dice and dub, tech and garage blends from FUSE man Enzo Siragusa. Fans can expect UK sounds from party starter Archie Hamilton, prog from the innovative Ukrainian Miss Monique, and house, breaks and minimal from Dutch wunderkind Chris Stussy, amongst plenty of other talent.
Aside from the music, the local area offers a wealth of activities to suit everyone from adrenaline junkies to relaxation lovers, with water sports, kayaking, rock lining, quad bike hire, bungee jumping, wind and kite surfing, and so much more including the nearby town of Novalja. It is a historic spot with a beautiful harbour, plenty of restaurants and rich local culture to explore, and all just 10 minutes from the festival. It also offers a wide range of accommodation to suit all budgets, and they can be booked from an official partner here.
