Dimensions will be taking place in Fort Punta Christo, near Pula, from 30th August to 4th September 2017.
The “little sister” of well-established Outlook Festival – put on by the same team – returns for 2017 after epic celebrations for its fifth birthday last year! And for 2017, Dimensions will be offering its heaviest bill of live acts and selectors to date.
Taking place in the same venue as last year (Fort Punto Christo, close to Pula – which is also where Outlook is held), Dimensions is described as an “underground electronic music festival in an abandoned fort”. What’s not to love?
Acts performing at the 2017 festival include the truly enigmatic Grace Jones (who will be headlining the opening concert), Jeff Mills, Theo Parrish, Floating Points, Nina Kravtiz, Danny Krivit, Levon Vincent, Floating Points and many, many more. Check out all the details on the line-up page.
As ever, Dimensions 2017 will also have an opening concert held in Pula’s Arena (the stunning amphitheatre in the centre of the town). Last year, Massive Attack played to 8,000 fans; this year Grace Jones will perform, as will Berlin super-group Moderat, Yussef Kamaal and award-winning drummer, composer and producer Moses Boyd. Tickets for the opening concert can be purchased separately to the main festival. This means if you’re in town and can’t attend the whole event, you can still get a slice of Dimensions!
Dimensions 2017 will be another magical event – combining the best of house, techno, soul, disco, jazz, dub, R&B, world and beyond.
As we’ve explained on the Outlook Festival page, Punta Christo is a wonderful (entirely disused) fort from the 19th century that’s on a peninsula close to Pula – and is a truly spectacular venue for the Festival, not to mention a unique one. A number of stages and areas will be set up for the Festival all around the fort and nearby that have different capacities, allowing for different vibes.
During the day, festival goers can also have fun at parties on the beach – situated a short walk from the fort – as well as on one of the famous boat parties which feature DJs, MCs and a bar. (Tickets for boat parties are sold separately.)
Dimensions prides itself on its small capacity and welcoming atmosphere and world class sound systems. This ensures a quality approach to music and a fantastic festival experience for attendees, year on year.

Getting to Pula
Pula Airport is the nearest to the Festival site and is therefore the best airport to fly to. Many airlines now fly from the UK to Pula, including British Airways from London Heathrow; Easyjet and Norwegian from London Gatwick; Ryanair from London Stansted; Thomson from London Gatwick, Bristol, Birmingham and Manchester; and Jet2.com from London Stansted, Manchester, Leeds Bradford and Edinburgh. Aer Lingus also fly from Dublin to Pula.
There are buses that transfer you from the airport to the main bus station in Pula, from where you can make your way to the Festival site.
For more options, consider flying to somewhere in Italy (such as Trieste, Venice Treviso or Venice Marco Polo Airports) to where there are daily connections in summer from the UK. It is relatively easy to transfer from any of these airports to Pula – see our Getting to Istria page for more details.
