The very first Defected Croatia will take place at The Garden Tisno from 10th to 15th August 2017.

About Defected Croatia

After many a successful season in Ibiza, the Defected team brought their unique vision to Croatia’s shores last summer for the very first Defected festival. A mix of main stage house superstars, disco icons and underground heroes played to partygoers day and night in the awesome Garden Resort, making full use of everything the site has to offer – including daytime beach sessions and the (in)famous boat parties, great stages and the onsite nightclub, Barbarella’s, for some top notch after parties.

And after a very successful first event, Defected returns to Croatia for 2017! Better yet, the festival has been extended from five days to six! This year’s line-up once again has some very exciting names on the bill – including MK, Basement Jaxx (DJ set), Kenny Dope, Eats Everything, Dennis Ferrer, Roger Sanchez, Todd Terry and Julio Bashmore.

The Garden is also the perfect place to relax in the sun and sea by day when you’re looking for a little downtime from the festival. But there’s also plenty more besides – how about indulging in a massage or joining one of the yoga sessions?. Or, for the more adventurous, doing a bit of sailing?

Getting to Tisno

Tisno is best reached by flying into either Split or Zadar from the UK, although the former airport has more flights than the latter. Check out who flies to both places on our Getting to Split and Getting to Zadar pages. There are of course loads of flights to both places from all over Europe as well!

From either airport, it’s an easy transfer to the main bus terminal in each city. From there, take a bus to Tisno (if you’re looking up schedules, look up ‘Tisno R.’, ‘Tisno raskrsce’ or ‘Tisno magistrala’).

It might however be easiest to simply purchase and organised transfer from an airport – and don’t forget, there’s other airports in Croatia you can fly in to as well! See our Flights to Croatia from the UK & Ireland page for full details.
