Being the only hip-hop festival in the southeast Europe, and the only European beach hip-hop festival, Fresh Island will present the best of hip-hop at four turbo stages in clubs Aquarius and Papaya, during its four nonstop day and night program. With everyday performances by international stars, at "Boat" and "After Beach" pool parties that will take place during daytime, the Festival will present shows by famous DJs and MCs. Hip-hop fans will be able to enjoy different dance and music workshops, watch movies, participate in extreme water sports and graffiti sessions… With a daily average temperature of  35 degrees Celsius (95 degrees Fahrenheit), beautiful Adriatic sea and Zrće beach, Fresh Island Festival is truly "YOUR PERFECT HIP-HOP HOLIDAY" – this is the official slogan of the promo campaign for international markets.  

Over the last few months, Snoop Dogg was continually present in the media through his reincarnation and new alias "Snoop Lion". Soon he will reveal a new album and a documentary, both named "Reincarnated". He has drawn a lot of media and public attention with his live performances – aided by his colleague Dr. Dre and digital technology, he brings to life the deceased rap legend 2Pac who appears on stage as a holographic projection. A big soccer fan and jersey collector, Snoop Dogg keeps a Croatian national soccer team jersey in his collection.
