Who can believe it – Love International will already be celebrating its fifth birthday next year! And the festival has just this week announced the first wave of artists who will be appearing at the 2020 edition.
The 2020 festival will take place from Wednesday 15th July to Tuesday 21st July (slightly later than this year) in its normal home of The Garden, Tisno.
As ever, Love International 2020 will include everything that the festival has come to be so well known for. From wild boat parties to celebrating dawn breaking over Barbarella’s; the slow-simmering Sunrise Sessions by the water’s edge to the exclusive closing Secret Island party….and much, much more. Love International is a true mix of a holiday and a festival as one, in an absolutely gorgeous location.
And to celebrate their fifth year, the festival will feature its most adventurous programming to date. The festival ethos will once more be fashioned around the best and not the biggest, bringing together all the elements which have created such a revered experience.
One of the best loved festivals hosted in Croatia, Love International features a vibrant mix of DJs, producers and artists mixing it up with labels, collectives and showcases from around the world, all converging for a few days and nights of unparalleled escapism. Musically Love International is one of the region’s most diverse events, spanning house to techno to dub to Balearic. Uniquely – and incredibly – during the weekend’s peak, the festival runs 24 hours a day.

Tom Paine, Love International’s co-founder, explains:
“We love our Tisno home and can’t wait to be back for our 5th year to celebrate with everyone. Five years in the making has seen Love International continue to evolve into what we believe is the perfect mix of our festival and a holiday in a truly stunning coastal location. And as part of this, we have got some incredible back to back sessions lined up from some of the festival’s most iconic DJs, including that world first from Hunee, Palms Trax and Antal. There’s a great sense of community from everyone who comes from all over the world, from guests to the DJs and artists to the locality itself, and we can’t wait to be back.”
