Defected Croatia is all set for August, announces full 2021 lineup

Defected Croatia 2021 lineup announced

After waiting in the wings to see how the Covid situation would develop, Defected Croatia is now ‘all systems go’ for next month. And we’re pleased to announce the full lineup is finally here!

The house music brand & record label (Defected Records) will once again be taking over Tisno’s beautiful Garden Resort in Croatia for 6 days through 5-10 August – less than 4 weeks away as we write this.

The team at Defected will be hosting more than 80 world-renowned DJs & live acts across numerous different stages and boat parties.

From A-Z, some of the headliners include Armand Van Helden, Bob Sinclar, Carl Craig, Dave Lee, Derrick Carter, Dimitri From Paris, Eats Everything, Floorplan, Gorgon City, Honey Dijon, Horse Meat Disco, Jayda G, Kenny Dope, Louie Vega, MOODYMANN, Nightmares on Wax, Purple Disco Machine, Roger Sanchez, Todd Terry and Inner City (Live).

What to expect

Travelling from all corners of the globe to The Garden, Tisno on the shores of the Adriatic, the festival celebrates Defected’s house music values – inclusivity, togetherness and escapism in the sunshine and under the stars.

Festivalgoers are treated to headline sets from house legends and global superstar DJs. Twice-daily boat parties take the party out to sea with the best underground selectors and hottest new dance music talents. Above all, the festival’s warm family vibe means that it’s a chance to hang out with all your favourite DJs. There’s no VIP, just a whole lot of unity and love for house music.

A typical day at the festival kicks off with mindfulness sessions at the beach including meditation and yoga, led by wellbeing professionals and designed to instil peace and restore balance after long days and nights of dancing. The house hedonism ensues in the early afternoon across four unique stages at The Garden site, rolling well into the night and on to after-hours parties at the world-famous Barbarella’s nightclub.

Ticket info

Ticket allocation is only a couple of thousand, and you’d have to assume that most of those are already gone.
