With an incredible line-up announcement earlier this year, Hideoout Festival 2012, has had a massive amount of interest and tickets for Croatia’s World famous summer festival will be selling out fast. The exotic Isle of Pag, Croatia hosted the 2011 dance music festival and made huge waves amongst fans with its extensive line-up and idyllic location. Hideout 2012 is set to come back with a vengeance, as it supersedes the calibre set by the previous event and threatens to offer ticket holders the festival of a lifetime.
2012 Line-up Additions
This year the full festival site will open up on the Thursday evening, to add to the week’s entertainment. The programme for the night will be made up of residents, club partners and local talent, but kicking things off in immense style are two brand new additions to the line-up, both notorious DJ’s in their own right. Pioneering drum and bass originator from Brazil DJ Marky will host Kalypso, while Kompakt records founder and time-honoured techno influencer Micheal Mayer will take the helm in Papaya.
Two New Diverse Arenas
Hideout organisers have added not one but two new arenas to the programme, to accommodate the extensive line-up and for even more island enjoyment. This time around Zrce Beach’s Kalypso night club will be fully utilised as an arena during the festival. Recognised for its idyllic setting, thatch-roofed bars, beds, parasols and Palm Trees, this venue promises to bring club island paradise at its best. A far cry from Dance Music Manchester’s regular hangouts at the muddy Warrington fields of Creamfields festival, Global Gathering and Glastonbury’s wellington boots! (Not that we don’t absolutely love our festival wellies!)
As well as this, in place is a 5th arena, Hideout Beach Party, situated just up the road from Papaya, where a host of the festival’s DJ’s and club partners, as well as local acts, will be bringing some alternative party vibes. This addition will provide somewhere to warm up the night or recharge batteries before heading back to the festival’s main stages.
In line with the 2 new arenas, there is also increased accommodation space with the introduction of an all-new Hideout campsite, offering a most authentic experience. A campsite just a short distance from the festival’s location will give festival-goers the opportunity to sleep in the great Croatian outdoors, amongst the sounds of the sea from Saint Spirit (Sveti Duh) beach, neighbouring to Zrce.
The campsite will be complete with showers, toilet facilities, drinking water, a shop for basic amenities, a choice of 3 restaurants and regular buses running to and from the festival site. Hideout have also teamed up with UK Based Pod Pads to offer a premium camping experience.
More Boat Parties
This year there are no less than 16 boat parties setting sail from Novalja throughout the course of the week, running from Wednesday 27 th June to Sunday 1st July. Each vessel will be commandeered by a carefully chosen selection of the hottest labels and finest artists on today’s dance music scene and headed up by some of the most superlative artists in the main festival line-up.
Boat parties were deemed by many to be one of the chief highlights of Hideout 2011 and this year are set to excel themselves. Already sold-out, this year’s boats will offer the ultimate mix of acts, labels and club partners for 16 unforgettable parties just off the shores of Croatia’s Isle of Pag.
Introducing Hideout Daytime
Like the boat parties weren’t enough, this year Hideout Festival will host a colourful spectrum of onshore daytime Hideout Daytime activities in and around Zrce Beach. Like last year, pool parties will take place, at which some of the festival’s headline acts, as well as local extra talent, will perform – details for which are to be announced at a later date.
Brand New Installations
As a final garnish to the new and improved Hideout experience this year organisers are serving up, a range of atmospheric installations which will be constructed in and around the festival. Lighting up your pathways and providing beautiful spaces in which to party, fascinating decor will become the backdrop to the music. Geodomes will provide chill out areas and extra special Hideout branded décor will align each corridor and illuminate every corner.
2012 early bird tickets have already sold out and despite the unbridled sell-out success of last year’s inaugural festival, standard tickets remain at a mere £99 for all the 3 nights.
