Hi y’all

In exactly eleven weeks we’ll be kicking off our third festival in Tisno, Croatia. 

I have mentioned numerous times how Defected Croatia is actually the highlight of my year. It’s where all our DJs, producers and extended family unite for six incredible days and nights.

We are working hard to ensure that this summer exceeds our first two events. We have our best ever line-up, upgraded our stages and production. We have added wellbeing to the program, along with after hours sunrise sessions.  

As we start the summer and commence the final leg of our Road To Croatia we have had an incredible week… our opening parties at Café Mambo and Eden last Sunday were next level! See more HERE. Today we host a live stream from Tower Bridge in London (the first time this has ever been permitted) and on Sunday we have an incredible line-up at We Are FSTVL! Then next Friday will see Glitterbox open its second season at Hï. For me, the countdown to Croatia has officially begun!

While you’re getting everything sorted to join us at the festival, there are some things I thought you should know.

We are on course for a sell-out event. We want to keep it special so we have limited tickets and this month is the last time you can use the deposit scheme and pay your ticket off in instalments.

Recently, we have been getting a lot of messages regarding accommodation. The choices may be limited, but it’s certainly not impossible to find something. There is still some accommodation available in Tisno and also in nearby locations such as Jezera, Betina and Murter (more info HERE). If you need any assistance at all, you can always hit us up at, or the festival site at who will be more than happy to assist.

As I mentioned earlier we’ve added a daily schedule of MINDFULNESS sessions, so you can get some relaxation in at midday before the party starts. It’s a new thing for us, but I’m excited to see what making some time for wellbeing will bring to the whole experience.   

Don’t forget, you can keep in touch with us on the WhatsApp group too (message START to +44 7848 030 298). And for you last minute people, sort your act out! 

Looking forward to seeing you all very soon.
