and Europe, Hideout Festival capacity in 2012 is being increased and a fourth venue is being added to the festival. In addition to Papaya,Aquarius 1 and Aquarius 2 dance fans will also be able to experience their favourite artists, producers and DJs in Kalypso, Zcre Beach’s most infamous nightclub, right next to the sea and surrounded by palm trees adding an exciting new dimension to the festival layout. In addition to this, to accommodate the extra capacity, Hideout Festival will now have even more apartments available in the town of Novaljia and surrounding areas – just down the road from the action and right next to all the bars, pubs, restaurants and the beach.

After much success in the Drum and Bass game, Camo and Krooked will hit Hideout Festival this year, the two producers are now opening their minds up to a whole lot of their past influences, exploring deep house and techno, Hideout Festival is most definitely in for a treat.

Large scale parties will be hosted throughout the festival by the likes of Crosstown Rebels, Manchester’s Drop The Mustard, London’s prolificMulletover and more will join the cream of clubbing to spread Hideout into a weeklong party. Hideout Festival will see so much more than a three day electronic extravaganza, a single £99 festival ticket includes pre-parties that kickoff from 26th June and continue all the way up to 29th June, meaning clubbers can expect a week long music epidemic all for much less than a UK festival ticket.
