The 14th edition of the epic Suncebeat is back in Tisno this summer (20th – 27th July 2023) and just a few days ago the first wave of artists appearing was announced. SunceBeat will be going back to its roots this year, as the team bring together some of the original artists as well as honing in on the global sounds which make the festival so unique – there will be the best of house, disco, Afro, Soul, Garage, R&B and funk on offer. Names on the bill include acts such as DJ Spoony, Kenny Dope, David Morales, Hunee, Children of Zeus (live), DJ Spen and Friends and more! (See more details further in this post.)
The Garden Resort, Tisno is the perfect venue for SunceBeat (the region’s longest-running festival) – all the usual spectacular elements such as intimate beach-side dancing, bouncing boat parties, the mesmeric Olive Grove, the open-air club Barbarella’s and headline artists on the Garden Stage will be there. And with plenty of restaurants, bars, hidden covers and intimate beaches in the general area, SunceBeat really does offer an amazing festival experience and holiday in one.

“We’ve been busy behind the scenes getting ready for the 14th edition of SunceBeat and all of the team are very proud of our first wave of artists. As always, we’ve got a mix of some super-hot talent breaking through and some familiar faces who know us well; some artists haven’t played for us for some time now, and we made a decision to get back to our musical roots by bringing these guys back. There’s plenty more to come and we can’t wait to welcome everyone to SunceBeat.”Alex Lowes, SunceBeat founder
