Croatia Rocks arrives in 2015

As Ibiza Rocks reaches and celebrates 10 years of bringing live events to the White Isle, the ground-breaking brand is also firmly looking into the future with the launch of Croatia Rocks Festival.  This is a festival first for Rocks and will take place on Croatia’s most famous party beach, Zrce, from Monday 20th – Thursday 23rd July 2015.

Over the last decade Croatia has been one of the hottest destinations in the world for adventurous festivalgoers and is now ready to embrace a new chapter.  Renowned for pushing the boundaries and shaking up the music scene in Ibiza for the last 10 years, Rocks will bring something new to Zrce, with a combination of established live acts and DJs plus genuinely exciting new artists and producers. As well as the main stage events with festival headliners, a hand-picked selection of credible and diverse club partners from the UK and Ibiza will join a programme of Balearic fused beach and boat parties.

Shane Murray, Brand Director, Ibiza Rocks said: “This is a genuinely exciting move for Ibiza Rocks and marks a significant new chapter in our story as we reach 10. Croatia has clearly evolved from an emerging to an established music destination and it’s long been a wish of ours to bring the spirit of Ibiza Rocks to the beach in Croatia.  We’ve got great partners onboard and look forward to becoming a part of what is already a rich and diverse festival scene.  Exciting times lie ahead in Ibiza and beyond and we can’t wait to bring the Rocks experience to such a beautiful location."

Zane Lowe, Ibiza Rocks Music Director said: “I love working with Ibiza Rocks. We're looking forward to playing in Croatia next year, as the Rocks family continues to find new audiences in new places.”
