The 11th Hideout Festival will take place in its usual location – Zrce Beach in Novalja, on the island of Pag – from 25th to 29th June 2023.
Set on what’s considered to be the party island in Croatia – the island of Pag – Hideout made its debut in 2011, bursting onto 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.
2023 will see the festival’s eleventh edition take place and some of the first names on the line-up have already been announced. If you head down to Hideout this summer, you’ll be able to enjoy acts such as Honey Dijon, Sonny Fodera, Chase & Status, Loco Dice, Patrick Topping, Gorgon City and Jayda G. Plenty more names are still to be announced too.
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…! There’s also plenty of activities for daytime fun, including watersports on the Adriatic and even bungee jumping.
