Set to be one the many highlights of Unknown Croatia, the first wave of boat parties have now been announced, featuring an amazing series of collaborations between promoters, labels and DJs. Setting sail daily during the week, the boat parties will be a truly intimate experience with big name artists taking to the decks as revelers party out in the open water. Respected electronic labels and promoters renowned for putting on the best nights will ensure that each boat party hits the water with a line-up of leading and emerging DJs, all ready to provide the soundtrack for the ultimate summer setting.
Taking the helm for the maiden voyage will be Nicola Bear, Tom Grainger and The Straight Up DJs, while that evening will see The Sonic Emporium and The Last Waltz delivering an elcectic mix of house and techno. Festival-goers are invited to board the 20 Years of Kompakt boat party as Michael Mayer and DJ Koze celebrate the legendary record label with a night of German electronica. Phantasy fans will be delighted as the London label will be hosting a boat with head honcho Erol Alkan alongside Daniel Avery and Justin Robertson. Jackmaster is joined by fellow Numbers' founder Spencer for Tweak-a-holic, which faces fierce competition when Jamie xx, Four Tet and Floating Points head out into to water with Wax:On. AME and Dixon will be out in full force as they curate their own boat party with the pair's Innervisions label. With a serious passion for cutting edge, electronic dance music Bugged Out round off the week in true style with Julio Bashmore and Paul Woolford, while John Talabot, Pional and Marc Pinol climb on board for the Hivern boat party. Boat party tickets are available here.
