Soundwave has become the summer highlight for a growing number of regulars who return year after year with a third of the tickets selling before any artists are announced. With a handful of festivals starting up in the concrete tourist hotspots across Croatia Soundwave has become the festival synonymous with beauty in addition to its amazing line-up. Soundwave sells out early every year, as ticket numbers are limited to retain its intimate spirit so expect tickets to sell out fast!
