Defected Croatia aftermovie (2021):
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.
