Soundwave Croatia will take place in Tisno, 27th to 31st July 2017.

Who can believe that Soundwave Croatia is already nine years old?! This year will also see the return of an artistic slant to the festival as well; alongside the many great names on the bill, Soundwave will see street artists, mural artists and illustrators ‘decorating’ the festival space and turning it into an evolving piece of art. There will also be an onsite cinema with its own film programme, showcasing independent and Croatian films.

But to return to the main part of the festival – the music! Names on the bill for Soundwave Croatia 2017 include Roni Size, Laura Mvula, Gilles Peterson, Horse Meat Disco, Medlar, Roy Ayers, Gogo Penguin and many many more. Check out more details on the line up page.

About Soundwave Croatia

Organised by one of London’s top promoters, Rob Waller/Soundcrash, along with one of the managing directors and curators of Outlook & Dimensions Festivals, Noah Ball, the event is a wonderful opportunity to experience a music festival on the beautiful Croatian coastline – what could be better? This “unique European boutique festival” has a very loyal following, with many revellers returning year after year; a third of tickets are snapped up before any artists are even announced, and the festival is always fully sold out beforehand.

Soundwave is a perfect choice if you’re just after a long weekend festival event in Europe, although there’s also a great opportunity for you to combine it with a holiday on Croatia’s coastline either before or after.

Getting to Tisno

Tisno is roughly halfway between the town of Zadar and the city of Split – this means that you can fly to either airport if you’re attending Soundwave.

Having said that, there are more flights to Split from the UK, including those from Heathrow, Gatwick, Luton and Stansted in London, as well as from Bristol, East Midlands, Birmingham, Manchester, Leeds Bradford, Newcastle, Glasgow and Edinburgh, and from Dublin as well. See our Getting to Split page for details of all air routes. As you will see on that page, there are also many flights to Split from elsewhere in Europe.

You can still fly to Zadar from the UK – Ryanair fly to Zadar from London Stansted, Manchester and Dublin airports. Once again, there are also plenty of flights from the rest of Europe to Zadar – see the Getting to North Dalmatia section for details of all of these.

Contact the festival organisers to arrange transfers to the festival site; alternatively you can make your own way to Tisno. Check out the Split Bus Terminal and Zadar Bus Terminal websites for timetable details.

If you’re having trouble getting public transport to Tisno, try searching for buses to “Murter”; you could also travel to Sibenik – the nearest large town to Tisno and the island of Murter. There are many buses per day to Sibenik from either Zadar or Split, as well as from other places in Croatia.

Take a look at our Getting to Croatia and Travelling Around Croatia sections for other options of reaching Croatia from the UK and other parts of Europe, and also for travelling to Tisno. (Or for getting away from Tisno after the Festival ends.)

    From my tourist review of Tisno, if it helps to anyone

    I went to Tisno Garden Festival ( official web last year, as well as the year before. I will most probably go this year also so I decided to share my experience with you.

    Transportation: I landed in Zadar airport, and from there you can take a cab, bus, or shuttle. You can find shuttle link on the official web site of the Festival but I found that you can pre-order a cab for up to 8 people and it will end up cheaper. (shuttle is 90-100 euros for 1-8 persons, and cab is 80 euros flat rate to Tisno, but you should order from some costal town nearby, DO NOT take cabs on the airport itself, they sometimes cost 50% more). I will link you cabs here ( this one is the one I took, it was 80 euros for 8 of us, and I can leave you couple of more that I found while I was there so or or In my experience the cab was the best option (reserved before we landed). If you think this is too much you can take a bus, there is one from airport to Bus terminal in Zadar and from there you can take one to Tisno. If you are single or max two of you, this could be a better option if you want to spare some money, but it also takes alot of time. You ahould also make a note that you have to take direct line to Tisno ( there is a line that leaves you at Tisno enterence but you have 6-7 km of walking distance to Garden from there and no buses on that route)

    As from Split or Zagreb airport – all of the same things go, you can take local buses, order a taxi services that are linked ( or you can google them for yourself for other companies) but if you want to save some cash do not go in to airport taxies.

    Bonus tip:

    You should walk up to this viewpoint, its about 15-20 minute walk from Garden. I was driven there by a taxi driver and it makes some great holiday pics 😉

    Also, if you have some time, you should visit Krka Falls if you enjoy nature ( ), visit Slanica beach on Murter Island ( its more beautiful in real life I should say, and its great if you have kids and only kind-of-sand beach in that part of Croatia).

    For local visits, if you catch any time you should visit city of Sibenik and city of Vodice. Maybe on your last day, before a flight you could visit Zadar, its most amazing city in the night but you should see it during a day also, it is one of the worlds city you must see ( Dubrovnik is also but its a long way from Tisno ).

    If you want to eat, number one is Kapela, the best pork ( some say and lamb but I havent tried it ) and Pelegrini, voted top 5 restaurants of Croatia, stationed in Sibenik ( ). I would also say that there are numberous of restaurants and konobas where you can eat some great food so maybe there is no need to go as far as Sibenik to eat unless you have some extra money with you. Its not that expensive but its 30 km from Tisno.

    As for places to stay at, I would recommend online booking and ASAP beacause it gets booked early. If you cant stay at Tisno, be sure to check for apartmans in, Jezera, Betina, Murter (place on Island of Murter) or if you cannot find it there you could look for Pirovac and Vodice (10-12 km from Tisno) Unfortunately I cant help you with some links since I stayed at my friends house but you should be able to google it. Just be sure to not settle for the first one you see, alot of the times you can go cheaper.
