With Xmas already a distant memory and New Year hangovers just about cleared, now we can really look ahead to the summer with some relish. The nights are – marginally – getting shorter, and if you listen really carefully you can almost hear the beatific beats cresting the waves from a certain sun-kissed and pine-shaded peninsular in Croatia. The countdown has now truly begun for the 6th Garden Festival, and each passing day is one closer to a sublime week of music, fun and adventure on stunning Dalmation coastline.

The first wave of acts have just been announced, including some brand new names making their debuts at the Garden along with some familiar friends.

Argonaughty and Barbarellas Parties So Far

For many, the twice-daily Argonaughty boat and Barbarellas Discotheque parties are always highlights. Charting the shimmering Adriatic waters on the salty old sea dog, the Argonaughty, either for a sun-bathed afternoon session of funk and house or a later trip to catch the sunset and come back during the evening to deep techno, the parties always capture the imagination. This year there will be fourteen parties to choose from. Barbarellas is a lovingly and beautifully restored club in the heart of the Garden Festival site; an intimate, circular environment with Funktion One sound, air-con and featuring label parties and special guests keeps the Garden Festival faithful partying until dawn.

The Garden Festival… Back To Our Roots for 2011

2011 sees the festival going Back to Our Roots – which takes place across one joyously long weekend, a full seven days and nights of beatific beats in the sun and late night excursions on the stunning site which juts into the invitingly azure Adriatic waters. Set in the 900-year old fishing village of Petrcane, there are bars and restaurants along the promenade offering fine fresh fish caught that morning. Lazing the hours away beneath the sun whilst sipping a cocktail is the only way to start the day; later, as the music tempo increases, perhaps catch the sunset at the Tiki Bar whilst dancing in the water, or maybe it’s one of the live headliners on the fully outdoor main stage.

The Garden Festival continues not only to capture but truly enrich peoples’ imaginations – a true fusion of relaxing holiday and riotous festival, situated in an area close to the historic city of Zadar. Pristine national parks, secluded beaches and hundreds of islands are close by, with Croatia an easy country to travel around.

Keep checking for flight deals to Croatia from the UK – and Europe too – on airlines including Ryanair, Easyjet, Jet2, Whiz Air and Croatia Airlines, as routes have now been released and there are some bargains to be had.
The Garden Get Together Tour is back too, kicking off in London on Saturday 5th February and from there will take in several of the UK’s and Europe’s coolest clubs featuring special guests and Garden friends from the last few years into Spring.
