Beach Stage

Nestled directly on the Adriatic at the end of The Garden’s beach, this is the ultimate spot for soaking up Defected Croatia’s stunning setting. During the day, the Beach Stage offers uninterrupted views across the bay and crystal clear waters. The music kicks off here in the early afternoon, soundtracking the last hours of sunshine until dark, when flooded with multi-coloured light the stage really comes into its own. The Beach Stage is the festival’s tucked-away party piece.

Main Stage

Kicking off every evening with performances from the festival’s headliners including live acts and superstar DJs, the Main Stage is the centre of attention after dark. The largest at the site, the Main Stage is at the heart of The Garden, surrounded by the bars, food shacks and facilities. Expect to see all your favourites of the world’s biggest DJs on their very finest forms.

Olive Grove

The Main Stage’s sidekick is the Olive Grove with its large canopy, making it perfect for daytime raving. Beautifully shaded and surrounded by trees, it’s a picturesque spot in the heart of the festival site. Just a couple of minutes from the beach and close to the bars and amenities, this is your first place to head when arriving at the site.

Boat Parties

There are at least two boat parties every day during the festival, setting sail from the site’s jetty on The Garden’s famous boat The Argonaught. With an upper and lower deck, a top quality soundsystem and its own bar, The Argonaught is the ultimate party-equipped vessel. Boat parties last for two hours and venture out into Tisno’s calm coastline, returning to the festival in time to continue the party on site.

Barbarella’s

Barbarella’s discotheque is without doubt one of the most exceptional nightclubs in Europe. Harking back to the original days of clubbing in Europe with its open-air setting and breath-taking location, Barbarella’s invites you to dance all night under the stars. Like all the most magical parties, nights at Barbarella’s are rarely over until 7 - 8am. Reach the club via a short ride on a free shuttle bus, taxi, or water taxi from the main site.

Terrace Stage

The festival's ‘community’ stage is populated throughout each day with emerging DJ talent, selected by Defected’s management and A&R team. Part of ongoing initiatives to find and nurture new DJs, a whole new festival space was devised in 2019, to host over 30 of the best entrants to a Defected mix competition. Going a few steps further than the previous competitions that have run every year since the beginning of the festival, the Terrace gives a well-deserved platform to promising mixers from around the world. The Terrace has a mellow daytime vibe and is close to The Garden resort’s restaurant, providing a soundtrack for festivalgoer’s more relaxed moments away from the hub of the festival site.

Wellbeing

Defected Croatia’s alternative festival sessions run every morning throughout the week. Led by highly qualified practitioners, the sessions include meditation, yoga, bringing music and mindfulness together and celebrating the power of silence. Offering festivalgoers a moment of restoration after days and nights of partying, the Wellbeing programme is a key part of the festival’s identity, balancing the infectious energy of house music with the chance to truly relax, providing attendees with a uniquely well rounded holiday experience on the stunning shores of the Adriatic.
