Croatia is one of the most beautiful places in Europe, no doubt. And there’s no better way to enjoy its beaches and the world-famous boating culture during the European summer than by attending the Outlook Festival. For more than a decade now, the event has been a pioneer in the continent’s massive sound system culture following. Past performers include big names such as Digital Mystikz, Skream, Johnny Clarke, Benga, Horace Andy, Shy FX, Gentleman’s Dub Club, and more. This year, Bonobo, J Hus, Andy C, Noisia, and Mist are among the prominent performers who will make sure that you dance till you drop.
The must-not-miss highlight of the event is the Opening Concert, which will be held in a 2,000 year old amphitheater. Imagine the biggest names in bass playing in a truly historic setting!
‘Mix some epic beach sessions and daily boat parties, peppered with booze, and legendary bass music performances in a stunning setting, and you’ve got one unforgettable, surreal experience called the Outlook Festival.’
Each year, spectators look forward to the boat parties as much as the concerts. Boat parties are filled with more dancing; they last for three hours long as they sail through the Adriatic seas. Meet some cool people from all over the world as you imbibe premium beverages under the Croatian sun – truly the experience of a lifetime! So if you’re still looking for that perfect summer holiday, the Outlook Festival is it.
The festival grounds are located within Fort Punta Christo, a 19th century fort in Stinjan above the City of Pula in Croatia. The unique setting is isolated although it’s connected to the campsite called Camping Brioni, formerly known as Puntizela.
Festival tickets are inclusive of four days of concerts plus access to the festival grounds, the beach, and the fort. Take note that festival and deposit plans don’t include accommodation because accommodation tickets are sold separately. Additionally, the Opening Concert ticket also has a separate ticket due to the limited capacity of the amphitheater.
The best way to get around Pula is by taking your own car or hiring a car rental service with a driver. There are train systems, although it isn’t the most practical option considering that the trains are infrequent and slow compared to other European cities.
Most festival goers will opt to camp in the campsite, which will be open to customers from 12 noon of September 4 to 2PM of September 11. Camping spots should be reserved in advance, although remaining spaces will be sold at the festival entrance. Limited camper van passes will also be available; slots for camper vans will be a little further to avoid any disruptions.
Apartment rentals are the most popular accommodation option in Pula. Most of the hotels are located in the Verudela neighborhood. There are also several campsites and a few hostels near the beach.
The nightlife in Pula is as legendary as its history. Check out Uljanik, the top party venue in Pula since 1965. Try the local wines on offer at Enoteca Istriana, home to several dozen incredible Croatian wine varieties. Immerse yourself in the underground culture of Rojc and feast your senses on talks, films exhibitions, the occasional live music. For some fun under the sun, hit up Medulin, just a short drive away from Pula where you’ll find tons of water sports and laid-back beach bars.
Outlook will take place from September 4 – 9, 2019.
