There’s less than a week to go to the inaugural FOR 2013 Festival on the beautiful island of Hvar – and we can hear many of you getting really rather excited at the thought of partying on such an idyllic location in less than a week’s time!
Taking place on three of the top venues in Hvar Town – Carpe Diem Beach, Veneranda and Amo Beach Bar – the Festival has a wonderfully diverse and canny line-up of some top artists. These include Tame Impala, Solange, Horse Meat Disco, James Blake, DJ sets from 2ManyDJs and James Murphy, Nicolas Jaar, Tensnake and numerous other top names. In addition to this great line-up, another plus is that only 2,000 tickets have been made available which means that FOR 2013 will truly be one of the most intimate festivals to take place this summer.
The party gets started in the late afternoon each day at Carpe Diem Beach, with matters then switching over to club Veneranda in the evening to get the vibe really ramped up. Carpe Diem Beach – part of the famous Carpe Diem club on Hvar, which this year celebrates its 15th birthday – then takes over proceedings once more, keeping the party going until the very early – and we do mean very early – hours of the morning. But in such a paradise-like setting, and with temperatures reaching a night-time low of about 22C (yes, you did read that right) we can imagine that everyone will keen and eager right until the final beat gets played each night.
FOR 2013 announced their set times today, which you can see at forfestival2013.com/line-up.htm. Check out that page to start planning where you’ll want to be when.
