As you may already know, one of the most renowned and respected brands and labels in house music Defected In The House, will not be returning to Ibiza this summer. Instead of their usual Ibiza season, they’ve launched a new venture, Defected Croatia 2016, five days of hedonism taking place at the stunning Garden Resort in Tisno, Croatia. ‘Defected has always looked forward to new challenges and today’s clubbing landscape is offering more diverse opportunities’ said Simon Dunmore regarding the decision not to return to Ibiza this year.

‘Last summer we enjoyed yet another successful season at Amnesia and, despite numerous offers for the coming season, we feel that it is time for a fresh challenge. We have decided that hosting a festival in Croatia is a hugely exciting opportunity and we look forward to offering house music fans something a little different this summer. Ibiza has been an integral part of Defected’s summer calendar for over a decade and we are certain it will remain a key part of our future following this hiatus. This season, we will remain present on the island by hosting our much loved Glitterbox party at Space every Friday.’ Taking place in the most idyllic corner of Croatia’s beautiful Adriatic coast, Defected Croatia 2016 will see house superstars, disco icons and underground heroes playing all-day beach sessions and boat parties by day, and the legendary Barbarella’s by night including Basement Jaxx (DJ set), Kenny Dope, Dimitri From Paris, Roger Sanchez, Todd Terry, Joey Negro, Simon Dunmore, Purple Disco Machine and more. Defected Croatia 2016 takes place between Thursday, the 11th and Monday, the 15 August at The Garden Resort in Tisno.
