Unknown Festival Launches Island Party Series!

Unknown Croatia, one of the most beautiful festivals of the summer has officially announced the line-up for it’s unique series of island parties… time to get excited!

Phantasy, Numbers, Young Turks & Hivern Discs are set to play host as Erol Alkan, Jackmaster, Jamie XX, John Talabot, Daniel Avery and more deliver unforgettable sounds on an unrivalled location on the Adriatic sea!
With plenty more up its sleeve, Unknown has already raised the bar high for 2014 with performances from CHVRCHES, London Grammar, Disclosure [DJ], Kindness, SOHN, Wild Beasts and a Croatian festival debut from Chic ft. Nile Rogers. Island party, festival tickets and more information at unknowncroatia.com. 8th – 12th September, festival tickets from £129.

In what we think is one of the coolest things of the summer (and fianlly a festival doing something a bit different!) each day a different label will host a party. Unknown revellers will have the chance to catch a boat and party on Unknown’s very own secluded island with some of the best DJs in the world providing the soundtrack. Erol Alkan’s label Phantasy takes to the island on Tuesday with a set from the DJ himself as well as techno mastermind Daniel Avery and Lemmy Ashton. The following day Jackmaster and Spencer take to the decks with Seth Troxler for their Numbers island party and on Thursday Young Turks and Hivern Discs team up to present a packed line-up featuring Nick Tasker, JMII and Dani Baughman as well as an unmissable back to back set by Jamie XX and John Talabot.

For those less familiar with Unknown festival you’re in for a treat… We covered it earlier in the year as our number one pick in our Festival Guide which details how it’s set in the paradise location of Rovinj on Croatia’s sun soaked coast, nestled between luscious forest and crystal clear waters, put simply Unknown is a festival like no other. Some of the world’s leading musicians, artists and designers will create the ultimate experience as revellers embark on a week of live performances, boat, island and pool parties, art installations, forest escapes and mystical adventures.
