The sublime Soundwave has just announced more new artists, completing the lineup for its 9th return this summer to beautiful Tisno. Indicative of the long-running event’s ambition, Soundwave has curated its most inspired lineup ever, including genre-leading live bands, iconic artists of immense repute, scene-defining DJs and some of the new generation of talent bursting through the ether.

They join the already announced Roy Ayers, Gilles Peterson, Go Go Penguin, Yussef Kamaal, Egyptian Lover, Josey Rebelle, Horse Meat Disco, MNDSGN and Donna Leake and more. Soundwave will again be commissioning some of its favourite street artists and illustrators from across Europe to transform The Garden Resort into an even more visually stunning setting. The much-loved open-air cinema experience also returns, with its showcase of independent and Croatian film.
Tisno - home to so many renowned festivals
Blessed with crystal-clear azure Adriatic waters, sizzling sunshine and star-lit night skies, the idyllic and intimate Garden Resort setting welcomes a global crowd of music lovers and adventure seekers to the beautiful town of Tisno, with lots of great places to stay and sumptuous food and drink. The site itself has the incredible water-side beach bar, where you are so close to the sea you are almost dancing in it, and cosy curl of a beach which looks out over the bay.
The site’s main stage is a little way behind, perfect for headline acts, and nearby nestled under the canopy of trees is the Olive Grove stage. It’s a beautiful location, everything built around nature, growing like the environment around it, rich with intimacy and a sense of wonder. And a short drive away is the incredible Barbarella’s club, a fully open-air space powered by Funktion One.
There’s snorkelling, diving and fishing to enjoy, or a visit to the surrounding islands is easy by renting a small boat and a trip to one of the immensely beautiful nearby national parks such as Krka and Kornati, with the historic cities of Zadar and Split close by too.
