n previous years we’ve been lucky enough to have artists such as De La Soul, Little Dragon, The Cinematic Orchestra, Roots Manuva, Bonobo, Gentlemans Dub Club and a whole heap of others create what was for many not only the perfect festival but also the holiday of lifetime. This year Soundwave have created its biggest and best line up to date...
Soundwave Croatia 2012
2013 Lineup Highlights
Over the last couple of years, Bonobo has become one of the premier artists on the Ninja Tune imprint. After the tremendous success of the ‘Black Sands’ album and subsequent remixes in 2011 which earned a nomination for ‘Best Artist Album’ and ‘Best Dance Remix’ in DJ Mag, we are very excited to welcome him back to Soundwave, where he will no doubt be showcasing cuts from his upcoming 2013 release with a full live band in support.
DOOM has previously worked under various pseudonyms including MF DOOM, VIKTOR VAUGHN, DANGER DOOM (with Danger Mouse) and MADVILLAIN (with Madlib). An essential and outlandish figure in underground hip hop.
Growing up in Houston, Texas, Robert Glasper had a strong musical influence in his mother, who played piano and sang gospel music in church as well as in jazz and blues clubs in Houston.

Quantic goes by the name of Will Holland, a musician, DJ and record producer originally from Bewdley, Uk. Based in the musical epicenter of Cali, Colombia since 2007, Holland has been exploring cumbias, salsa and Afro-Colombian music through his particular beat-focused, electronic and funk lens. His music draws upon elements of salsa, bossa nova, soul, funk and jazz.
