Electric Elephant will take place in Tisno from the 7th to the 11th July 2016!
Following a successful first few years in its new home of Tisno, Electric Elephant will once again be taking place in mid-July in 2016. The first and second wave of acts have already been announced – if you head down to EE this summer, you’ll see names such as Auntie Flo, Boo Williams, Bicep, Craig Charles, Maribou State, Todd Terry, Secretsundaze, Nightmares on Wax and many more perform.
In the meantime, to get a feel for what the festival is all about, read up on the reviews of festival from previous years: Electric Elephant 2010 (Skiddle.com) and How Croatia splashed on to the music festival map (The Guardian).
The Electric Elephant Festival
Organised by UK DJs and promoters Unabombers, the Festival promotes a wide mix of music from its live acts and DJs – reggae, electronica, soul, house and techno. The festival also hosts the (in)famous daytime boat parties, where revellers can enjoy partying it up on the high seas, whilst there’s plenty of other fun activities on site to take part in.
Tickets for Electric Elephant
As early-bird tickets have sold out, ordinary tickets for the Festival cost £100/£110 (plus booking fee). If you’re a real hedonist, you can also buy ‘Double Whammy’ tickets that allow you entry to both Electric Elephant and the brand new Love International Festival (29th June – 6th July) from £175.

Getting to Tisno
Tisno is a small town located roughly halfway between Zadar and Split. The town is in fact situated half on the mainland and half on the small island of Murter (which is only 20m away from the mainland, connected by a short bridge).
The best airport to fly to is probably Split as there are a large number of flights to here from the UK, including those from Heathrow, Gatwick, Luton and Stansted in London, as well as Bristol, Manchester and Glasgow. See our Getting to Split page for full details of air routes, where you can also check out the many flights to Split from elsewhere in Europe.
You can still fly to Zadar from the UK and Ireland – this year, Ryanair will fly there from London Stansted, Manchester and Dublin. See the Getting to North Dalmatia section for details of these flights.
Contact the festival organisers to arrange a transfer to the festival site; alternatively you can make your own way to Tisno. Look up bus timetables on the Split Bus Terminal and Zadar Bus Terminal websites.
If you’re having trouble getting public transport to Tisno, try searching for buses to “Murter”; you could also travel to Sibenik – the nearest large town to Tisno and the island of Murter. There are many buses per day to Sibenik from both Zadar or Split, or elsewhere in Croatia.
