"Nestled into the coastline of Croatia, Soundwave is rapidly emerging as one of the finest boutique festivals that Europe has to offer" - Clash
Welcome to Soundwave Croatia 2014!
We've got Fat Freddys Drop & Madlib!!
We are overjoyed to present another year of Soundwave. Now in our 6th year, Soundwave is a truly intimate festival for three thousand soon-to-be friends and some fairly major artists to come and laugh, dance, swim & relax together under the blue skies and sunshine in this beautiful part of the world.
Curated by a small team of music lovers, Soundwave provides 5 full days and nights of sun kissed music spread across a boat, a beach, a live stage by the seafront and a open air nightclub for dancing beneath the stars.
The festival site is located in a picturesque hidden bay just outside the small fishing village of Tisno on Croatia?s Dalmatian coast, directly in between the beautiful southern cities of Zadar & Split.
The bright sparkling waters are some of the clearest in the world, the hospitality is always welcoming and the seafood and local cuisine is outstanding.See you in the sunshine!

The highlight of most people's time is Tisno is a voyage on the legendary Argonaughty and no Soundwave experience is complete without some high jinx on the high seas. Enjoy your favourite clubnights, promoters and labels showcasing their nautical (read: musical) talents, as well as impromptu sets from some very special guests, and all on an old pirate ship...
Don't worry, we won't forget the rum! What kind of pirates would we be without a few barrels of rum?! Just make sure you get your sea legs first...
Aarrrrgh, me hearties!
