About Fresh Island Week

Another great festival on Croatia’s top party island – the island of Pag! Billed as ‘Europe’s #1 Hip Hop Beach Festival’, Fresh Island Week and the beaches and clubs of Zrce Beach surely go hand in hand to give revellers a phenomenal experience.

Fresh Island Week is held in the clubs of Zrce Beach in the town of Novalja (the clubs in question being AquariusPapaya, Kalypso and Rocks Beach Club) and the first few years of the event have seen some pretty big names from the world of hip hop perform – Snoop Dogg, Stormzy, Wiz Khalifa, Eve, Iggy Azalea, Nas, A$AP Rocky, Rick Ross, Pusha T, Skepta and Method Man and Redman have all got the party going on Zrce Beach.

Names already announced for 2020’s line-up include Wizkid, Dababy, D-Block Europe, Tim Westwood and DJ Semtex. Many more names will also be announced in due course!
