Croatia Music Festivals

Tisno on Murter island is a tiny town with a big reputation on the international party circuit. Located 29km northwest of Sibenik and 80km south of Zadar, Tisno hosts several of Croatia's most popular music festivals: Defected Croatia; Love International; Sunce Beat.

It all started in 2005 when the (now defunct) Garden Festival arrived with a roster of big-name stars. Just a short walk from the town center, the festival grounds have become the Garden Resort, a verdant landscape of sound stages and no-frills accommodation. During the summer festival season, the resort is a giant open-air party. And between festivals, the beat goes on at Barbarella's Disco just a few kilometres away.
