Dimensions Festival will be taking place in Fort Punta Christo, near Pula, from 29th August to 3rd September 2018.

About Dimensions Festival

The “little sister” of well-established Outlook Festival – put on by the same team – returns for 2018, now in its seventh year! And for 2017, Dimensions will be offering its heaviest bill of live acts and selectors to date.

Taking place in the same venue as last year (Fort Punto Christo, close to Pula – which is also where Outlook is held), Dimensions is described as an “underground electronic music festival in an abandoned fort”. What’s not to love?

Acts performing at the 2018 festival have yet to be announced, but we’re sure the line-up will be as spectacular as last year’s. That included the truly enigmatic Grace Jones (who headlined the opening concert), Jeff Mills, Theo Parrish, Floating Points, Nina Kravtiz, Danny Krivit, Levon Vincent, Floating Points and many, many more. Check out the line-up page for all the latest news.

As ever, Dimensions 2018 will also have an opening concert held in Pula’s Arena (the stunning amphitheatre in the centre of the town). Two years ago, Massive Attack played to 8,000 fans; last year Grace Jones performed, as well as Berlin super-group Moderat, Yussef Kamaal and award-winning drummer, composer and producer Moses Boyd. Tickets for the opening concert can be purchased separately to the main festival. This means if you’re in town and can’t attend the whole event, you can still get a slice of Dimensions!

Dimensions 2018 will be another magical event – combining the best of house, techno, soul, disco, jazz, dub, R&B, world and beyond.

About Dimensions Festival

As we’ve explained on the Outlook Festival page, Punta Christo is a wonderful (entirely disused) fort from the 19th century that’s on a peninsula close to Pula – and is a truly spectacular venue for the Festival, not to mention a unique one. A number of stages and areas will be set up for the Festival all around the fort and nearby that have different capacities, allowing for different vibes.

During the day, festivalgoers can also have fun at parties on the beach – situated a short walk from the fort. There are also the famous boat parties which feature DJs, MCs and a bar. (Tickets for boat parties are sold separately.)

Dimensions prides itself on its small capacity and welcoming atmosphere and world class sound systems. This ensures a quality approach to music and a fantastic festival experience for attendees, year on year.

Getting to Pula

Pula Airport is the nearest to the Festival site and is therefore the best airport to fly to. Many airlines now fly from the UK to Pula, including British Airways from London Heathrow; Easyjet from London Gatwick; Ryanair from London Stansted; TUI from London Gatwick, Bristol, Birmingham and Manchester; and Jet2.com from London Stansted, Manchester, Leeds Bradford and Edinburgh. Aer Lingus also fly from Dublin to Pula.

There are buses that transfer you from the airport to the main bus station in Pula. From there, you can make your way to the Festival site.

For more options, consider flying to somewhere in Italy (such as Trieste, Venice Treviso or Venice Marco Polo Airports) to where there are daily connections in summer from the UK. It is relatively easy to transfer from any of these airports to Pula – see our Getting to Istria page for more details.
