Soundwave Croatia will take place in Tisno, 4th to 8th August 2016.
Who can believe that Soundwave Croatia is already eight years old?! The festival returns to an early August slot for 2016 – something that was introduced last year to make it easier for more revellers to attend. This year will also see the return of an artistic slant to the festival as well; alongside the many great names on the bill, Soundwave will also see street artists, mural artists and illustrators ‘decorating’ the festival space and turning it into an evolving piece of art. There will also be an onsite cinema with its own film programme, showcasing independent and Croatian films.
But to return to the main part of the festival – the music! Names on the bill for Soundwave 2016 include Craig Charles, Calibre, Mala, Gentlemans Dub Club, So Fresh So Clean, Taste The Difference, Mala and many many more. Check out more details on the line up page.
About Soundwave Croatia
Organised by one of London’s top promoters, Rob Waller/Soundcrash, along with one of the managing directors and curators of Outlook & Dimensions Festivals, Noah Ball, the event is a wonderful opportunity to experience a music festival on the beautiful Croatian coastline – what could be better? This “unique European boutique festival” has a very loyal following, with many revellers returning year after year; a third of tickets are snapped up before any artists are even announced, and the festival is always fully sold out beforehand.
Soundwave is a perfect choice if you’re just after a long weekend festival event in Europe, although there’s also a great opportunity for you to combine it with a holiday on Croatia’s coastline either before or after.

Getting to Tisno
Tisno is roughly halfway between the town of Zadar and the city of Split – this means that you can fly to either airport if you’re attending Soundwave.
Having said that, there are more flights to Split from the UK, including those from Heathrow, Gatwick, Luton and Stansted in London, as well as from Bristol, Birmingham, Manchester, Leeds Bradford, Newcastle, Glasgow and Edinburgh. See our Getting to Split page for details of all air routes. As you will also see on that page, there are also many flights to Split from elsewhere in Europe.
You can still fly to Zadar from the UK – Ryanair fly to Zadar from London Stansted, Manchester and Dublin airports. Once again, there are also plenty of flights from the rest of Europe to Zadar – see the Getting to North Dalmatia section for details of all of these.
Contact the festival organisers to arrange transfers to the festival site; alternatively you can make your own way to Tisno. Check out the Split Bus Terminal and Zadar Bus Terminal websites for timetable details.
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 either Zadar or Split, as well as from other places in Croatia.
Take a look at our Getting to Croatia and Travelling Around Croatia sections for other options of reaching Croatia from the UK and other parts of Europe, and also for travelling to Tisno. (Or for getting away from Tisno after the Festival ends.)
