More on Soundwave
The festival also combines a holiday with a musical escape like no other, with the amazing, intimate venue offering set by the crystal-clear waters of the Adriatic. There’s a cosy beach with its own water-side beach bar; the Olive Grove stage under a canopy of trees; the main stage which will feature all the headliners; and the famous open-air Barbarella’s club – just the place to party at into the early hours.
Besides all the main festival action, you can also enjoy snorkelling, diving and fishing, or visit one of the surrounding islands or even national parks such as Krka and Kornati, or the historic cites of Zadar and Split.
Tickets for Soundwave cost £129 plus booking fee (boat parties and club tickets are extra) and can be purchased on the Soundwave website.
