The 18 Best Festivals in Croatia [2019]

Over the last half-decade, Croatia has turned into one of the hottest festival spots on the planet.

Electronic music in all of its various genres reigns supreme on the festival scene here, and Croatia is now a mecca for the rain weary festies of Europe. There’s a festival nearly every weekend during the summer, which means a Croatian adventure is accessible now more than ever. Check out our full 2019 Croatian music festival calendar right here.
