Following a very successful tenth edition of the festival last year, the epic Dimensions Festival has announced its full line-up this morning – and it really looks to be a spectacular year. Croatia’s most forward-thinking festival returns to its new home of The Garden Resort in Tisno from 31st August to 4th September 2023 with another untouchable mix of cult stars, pioneering legends and new school talents as well as the famous boat and label parties, live sets, back-to-back exclusives, debuts and much more.
The previous ten editions of the festival have seen the event really build up a special feel, meaning every dance is a special one, plenty of musical memories are made and new bonds are formed. All of that is no surprise given the experiences on offer – sailing out to sea on one of the hugely popular boat parties; baking in the sun as DJs drop warm beats on the beach; getting freaky at one of the after-parties or dancing under star-lit skies at the cult Barbarella’s Discotheque. And with the festival set on a sweeping, secluded bay, beside towering pines and with gorgeous sea views, the Garden Resort has proven to be the perfect setting.
With Dimensions all about high-quality production, carefully curated line-ups and crowds of serious music lovers, there is no finer place to spend your summer.
Take a look at the official highlights video below to get a feel for the festival:
Dimensions 2023 Line-Up
This summer, the full range of bass, house, techno, electro, garage, disco and plenty in between will be on Dimensions’ diverse musical programme, something that they have poured heart and soul into! Much of that will be overseen by the welcomed return of popular label and brand partners such as the one and only Fabric, Bristol label Dr Banana, Berlin mobile record store and DJ duo The Ghost, London party and label Butter Side Up, Welsh community-minded gathering Freerotation, Leeds’ legendary Subdub, plus Maricas, Heels & Souls, Casa Voyager, Picnic, Outlaws Yacht Club and more. On top of that, 2023 sees the addition of new partners such as Scotland’s leading electro label Craigie Knowes as well as the psychedelic lovers from Club Cosmos.
Some firm festival favourites and long-standing affiliates return including blistering techno from Helena Hauff, high-speed electro from Detroit’s Stingray, heady house and minimal from The Ghost, tasteful eclecticism from Josey Rebelle and stylish spaced-out electronic sounds from Hamish & Toby.
In terms of debuts, Italian techno sculptor Donato Dozzy will play for the first time while Sugar Free and Peach play back to back for the first time on any line-up with further b2bs scheduled from Malika & Matthew Neequaye, Christian AB & Quest, Gene On Earth & Dyed Soundorom, Youandewan & Huerta, Masda & Evan Baggs, tINI & Doudou MD, and Roza Terenzi & D. Tiffany.
Live shows are always a big part of Dimensions and this year Sweely, Z@p, Hieroglyphic Being, OCB aka Driss Bennis and Steevio all line up while lovers of heavyweight bottom ends have plenty to look forward to as Mala, Iration Steppas, LTJ Bukem, Josey Rebelle, Tim Reaper, Om Unit and Tasha all bring their finest bass next to Skee Mask, Objekt, Anz, Bluetoof and others who will be repping a rich take on UK centric electronic sounds.
On top of this, there will searing electro from Assault, Freakenstein, DJ Bone and Helena Hauff (who also brings her Presents concept with another hard-hitting line-up ), plus UKG and beyond with Dr Banana who return with a stellar takeover featuring Lady Passion, Perception, Enchanted Rhythms and more, while otherworldly explorations come from Sybil, Carl H, Simon Scott and GiGi FM. ISAbella brings her MARICAS party back to Tisno with a special takeover and you can expect mind-bending sets from Nicholas Lutz, Onur Ozer, Unai Trotti and Raphael Carrau amongst many more.
