The Garden Festival is back bigger and better in 2013

Schtumm, Berlin’s creative collective Somethinksounds, London-based party Krankbrother and Birmingham’s Leftfoot are hosting shows. Special guests include cosmic sound-scapes from Space Dimension Controller, Brighton’s bright young producer Maxxi Soundsystem and Italian acid-jazzer Nicola Conte, who set sail across the sparkling Adriatic. Tickets go on sale from 11am on Wednesday 8th May, and are expected to sell out within hours. After tickets for the Argonaughty Boat parties sold out in record time, the team at the Garden Festival HQ quickly embarked on finding a new boat to offer a second wave of tickets. Nick Colgan, one of the festival’s founders, explains, “We saw how quickly the tickets for the Argonaughty sold and we wanted to offer some new parties as they have been in such high demand. So we have found a lovely boat, The Arbiana, to compliment the shows we already have, which I know people will love. It’s got two decks and will dock in the same place as The Argonaughty, with an hour separating the departures. This is a great chance for anyone who missed out on the action to get a ticket, as the boat parties are such a big part of the overall Garden experience, and we have got some great new crews for the weekend.” Tickets for the parties go on sale from 11am Wednesday 8th May.

Book tickets from: The Garden Festival has also announced its new East Stage, which will run from Friday to Sunday with a strictly anything goes policy, offering a new dimension of music for the festival. Guests across the weekend will be announced soon, all taking part in what promises to be the best Garden Festival yet. The Garden Festival is a unique blending of festival and holiday into a glorious fun-filled journey, dancing under the sun and stars with like-minded people from across the world. The Garden is Croatia’s original event, revered for its intimate family ethos and setting on the beautiful Dalmatian coastline, beyond which glitters the enticingly warm Adriatic. Twice daily boat parties on The Argonaughty and new parties on The Arbiana, the stunning open air club Barbarellas, main stage and beach bar host 7 days and nights of amazing music. The Garden Tisno site is set in a gently hilly area which overlooks a beautiful bay below, complete with sandy beach and crystal clear waters, with onsite accommodation available including luxury Shikar tents, Podpads and apartments. Tisno itself – split between the mainland and the island of Murter, joined by a 20m rising bridge – is just a ten-minute walk away, a charming picture-perfect town with a host of restaurants, cafes, apartments and hotels.
