Unknown Festival - From Tuesday 10th September to Saturday 14th September 2013, Rovinj, CroatiaWhen the creators of Hideout Festival, The Warehouse Project and Field Day get together to put on a large-scale music event in Croatia, your mind immediately veers towards something pretty special. From what we’ve heard about Unknown so far, this new event looks to be exactly that.

Taking place on a beach-side setting in the beautiful town of Rovinj in Croatia from 10th - 14th of September, Unknown promises “a hedonistic and immersive paradise” in which to showcase their forward thinking event. First and foremost, they’ve got a stellar line-up that encompasses a broad range of quality music. They’ll be a collection of live acts, bands, DJ’s and performers but the site itself will also house some hidden gems such as mysterious and bespoke design projects for you to stumble upon.

With a heavy DJ contingent at the festival, Unknown will be serving up sets from selectors as diverse as Richie Hawtin, Nina Kraviz, Justin Robertson, Tiga, Tale Of Us, Craig Richards, Ame, Damian Lazarus, Dixon, DJ Koze, Giles Smith, Julio Bashmore, and Todd Terje to name a few. Add that to live performances from the likes of The Horrors, Four Tet, Jagwar Mar, Factory Floor and Jessie Ware amongst others and you have the makings of a perfectly balanced event.

With comparatively cheap tickets and unquestionably better weather and camping conditions than their British counterparts, a festival on foreign soil has never looked so appealing.  The luxurious camping site sits in the forest whilst there is also the option to take over your own apartment. With the beautiful surroundings of the Adriatic Sea as a backdrop to the entire festival, Unknown seems like a comfortable and idyllic way to bring your summer to a contented close.
