3 days and 3 nights

Zrce Beach, Pag Island

Over 30 + artists

Fresh Island has cemented itself as one of Europe’s biggest and best Hip-Hop, R&B and Grime festivals bringing together international acts and pioneering newcomers taking over Zrce Beach with thousands of revelers jetting overseas for the ultimate celebration of the genres’ music and culture. For three days and three nights the festival hosts a mix of live performances, DJs, MC battles, dance crews plus beach, boat and pool parties in the idyllic setting of Zrce beach, with takeovers of Croatia’s most notorious open air clubs Aquarius, Kalypso and Papaya. Last years lineup included heavy weights such as the legendary Sean Paul, Rae Sremmurd, French Montana and plus many more! We’re on the edge of our seats waiting for the release of phase 1 for 2018…

Fresh Island is quite rightly pulling an ever-increasing UK crowd who are sacking of a muddy field to party on the beach in the summer. Fresh Island is the only beach festival in Europe where you can see DJs, MCs, boat parties, pool parties & much much more representing the absolute best of hip-hop, r&b and grime.

How much will food and drink cost me in Croatia?

Shops are obviously a fair bit cheaper for all the daily essentials and expect to pay roughly £6 – £10 for a meal out in Novalja, a bit less for fast food meals. Drinks in the venue will be from around £4 for a spirit and mixer or beer, up to whatever you want to spend on cocktails and other drinks.

How much do the Pool Parties cost?

All the Pool Parties are included in the full festival ticket. Party under the sunshine in a swimming pool across all of the venues on Zrce Beach.

What currency do I need?

Croatian currency is Kuna and can be bought easily at the bank, post office, travel agents or at the airport. Kuna can also be taken out of ATM’s though this will incur a charge per transaction.
