As well as being a beautiful historic country with many interesting sites and clear blue seas to visit, Croatia is also one of the biggest music hubs in the world with many festivals and music events taking place in the summer.
Hideout Festival is a popular one amongst Brits and is still relatively young on the festival scene, only having started in 2011 on the island of Pag. As well as huge artists performing in Zrce’s open air venues, you can participate in boat parties and pool parties all whilst soaking up the Mediterranean sunshine. Headliners this year include Major Lazer, Stormzy and Diplo.
