The Garden Resort, Tisno is a slice of Croatian paradise, is the home to different festivals house- and disco-orientated. In July and August this site, with the club Barbarella located in nearby Pirovac, hosts the following festivals: Love International, Beats Beer & Boogaloo (first edition), SuncèBeat, Soundwave, Defected, the new one scottisch festival The Lost Disco and the dutch Dekmantel Selectors. The main site sits on a bay that, conveniently, helps insulate the surrounding area from noise pollution. The boat parties here take in the idyllic Dalmatian coastal scenery. There are different stages, The Beach, Olive Groove and The Main for live acts with a big ledwall.
Associazione Link Associated, representing VisualMusic participated in the SuncèBeat and Soundwave. Born in 2010 Suncebeat, continues to innovate and set the tone in the wake of soulful house sound. The trend continued this year with an amazing Kerri Chandler (wonderfull set with keybord and cdj in Barbarella), Louie Vega with a disco set, Dave Morales, Dennis Ferrer, Sandy Rivera, the live of a steel and eternal David Rodigan, Jeremy Underground and many others.
