The eighth Hideout Festival will take place in its usual location – Zrce Beach in Novalja, on the island of Pag – from 25th to 29th June 2018!

Hideout Festival

Set on what’s considered to be the party island of Pag in Croatia, Hideout made its debut in 2011, bursting on to the (Croatian) festival scene with great aplomb. The last few years have seen some fantastic acts perform, with sets from top names such as Stormzy, Diplo, Chase and Status, Pendulum, Erol Alkan, Seth Troxler, DJ Hype, Andy C, Simian Mobile Disco, Erol Alkan, 2ManyDjs, Pendulum, Ricardo Villalobos, Annie Mac, Skrillex, Skream, Sigma, Seth Troxler and more.

2017 will see the eighth edition of the festival take place (hasn’t time flown by?!), and much of the line-up has already been announced. If you head down to Hideout this summer, you’ll be in for a treat with names such as Chase and Status (DJ set), Apollonia, Eats Everything, Gorgon City, Steve Lawler all on the bill amongst others, with many more still to be announced.

Like last year’s festival, the event is to be held at a few famous venues by Zrce Beach in Novalja on the island of Pag – the clubs Papaya, AquariusKalypso, Euphoria and Noa.

As ever, one of the delights of attending a festival in Croatia is the boat parties that accompany it. Hideout is no exception, and details of their fantastic boat parties will be announced in due course. (Tickets for these need to be purchased separately.) And alongside the boat parties, Hideout also hosts its famous pool parties…!

Getting to Pag and the Hideout Festival

The nearest airport to the island of Pag is Zadar which is on the Croatian mainland. Ryanair fly to Zadar from the UK and Ireland – they operate flights from London Stansted, Manchester and Dublin airports. Easyjet fly to Zadar from London Gatwick and London Luton airports.

Zadar Airport is also serviced by a good number of flights from elsewhere in Europe. See our Getting to North Dalmatia page for air routes from various European cities.

Hideout organise airport transfers from several Croatian airports (Zadar, Split, Dubrovnik, Pula and Zagreb) and from airports in neighbouring countries too (Ljubljana, Venice, Treviso and Trieste) on dates before and after the festival. Check out the festival website for full details and to book.

If you’re making your own way from Zadar airport, you can take a transfer bus to the main bus terminal in Zadar (you’ll see buses waiting outside the terminal building), which is about a 20-minute journey. From here you can take an additional bus direct to Novalja – the island is in fact connected to the mainland by bridge. Journey time from Zadar to Novalja is approximately 1 hour 30 minutes; check the Zadar Bus Terminal website for more details.

If you’re thinking of flying into one of the airports slightly further away from Novalja, see our Getting to Split and Getting to Zagreb pages. These have details of which airlines fly to these cities from the UK and Europe.

There is a direct bus from Zagreb to Novalja (journey time 5.5 hours – see the Zagreb Bus Terminal website); Split is about 4.5 hours south of Novalja. In the summer months, there’s a direct bus service run by Antonio Tours from Split to Novalja that operates in the late afternoon/evening.
