Getting there

Getting there

You can get to Tisno by air, land and sea and some of the best and most common options are below. In an effort to try and run this festival whilst causing as little damage to our lovely planet as possible, we encourage you to consider all possible options for travel before making your choice.

By Air

If you are travelling by air then please try and pay the small carbon offset fee that is provided as an option with most European flights nowadays. The nearest airports to the village of Tisno are Zadar (45 mins), Split (90 mins) or Zagreb (4 hrs). Flight prices do vary massively. Don’t be put off if the first ones you see are expensive, as there are plenty of cheap ways to travel out there – by flying to an airport slightly further afield you can get flights for under £70. For those with more time for an adventure, other airport options in Croatia are Dubrovnik, Rijeka or Pula. Flights to these airports tend to still be cheap when the prices to the others have increased. Also not too far away from Croatia are Ljubljana in Slovenia with Easyjet and Trieste or Venice in Italy with Ryanair. You can generally get good connections to Croatia by bus from these cities. Skyscanner compares millions of flights to find you the cheapest deal, and fast. You can book direct, with no fees at Skyscanner.

By Bus

Use the local buses and enjoy the beautiful Croatian landscape! You should check out www.autobusni-kolodvor.com or www.buscroatia.com for details and timetables. Be aware that multiple different operators often run on the same routes, so be sure to check prices of the various options at the bus station in Croatia. As one might expect, the faster the journey, the more expensive it generally is.

The Sunshine Bus run by Planet Festival

The most eco-friendly way to travel to Soundwave is probably by the Sunshine Bus, a number of coaches we provide from the UK to the festival site. Take the bus! It will give you the chance to experience a drive through Europe and to get to know a bus full of like-minded people also on their way to a party. We guarantee that you’ll feel like a family by the time you get there! Planet Festival exists to make travelling to the World’s best festivals simpler. In 2014, Planet Festival will operate the Sunshine Bus service from the UK to Soundwave Festival. The popular Sunshine Bus service is being expanded in 2014 with pick ups in Birmingham, Dover, London (Victoria Coach Station) and Manchester. A return fare is only £199 and this includes all return coach and ferry travel direct to the Soundwave festival site. Sit back and relax as Planet Festival whisk you through Europe to one of the most hotly anticipated festivals of the summer. To view all service information and to book your seat please visit:

If you want to experience Croatia at its very best, try renting a boat and discovering its many islands, before anchoring in Tisno, just a short swim away from Soundwave! Try this boat rental website:


Just don’t get too sea sick, ’cause there will be plenty of boat parties waiting for you when you arrive!

By Train

We advise against taking trains in Croatia. They are slower and much less reliable than the buses, and even Croatians don’t often use them. However, if you really fancy the challenge, you can travel by Eurostar to Northern Italy and then take a train through Slovenia into Croatia. See the following sites for more details:
