Dubrovnik is famous for its vibrancy, with enchanting views sweeping over the terracotta rooftops, distinctive cobbled Old Town streets, numerous plazas and museums that detail the rich tapestry of Croatia’s past. Many may also recognise the city from hit series and films like Game Of Thrones and Star Wars.. It is a truly unique backdrop for a series of world class house and techno parties and this now globally renowned weekender takes place across its most essential sites, from an ancient fortress to a panoramic terrace high above the city and overlooking the piercing blue Adriatic Sea.
Each location has its own charm and character and will be brought to life with world class sound and production. You can expect plenty of stunning views over the walled city and glistening sea, with breathtaking sunsets and sunrises every day as you enjoy beachside takeovers, pool and fortress parties and terrace sessions like no other.
House and techno duo Solardo lead the charge and since being crowned DJ Mag’s Best Breakthrough Act of 2016 and Best Duo of 2017 have never looked back. They have released on the likes of Elrow, Toolroom Records and Green Velvet’s Relief Records, have topped the Beatport charts and run their own vital Sola label. Now they bring their excellent curatorial skills to another mouthwatering Higher event.
They will be joined by a who’s who of house and techno talent from across the board, including Music On‘s Marco Carola, Berlin outfit FJAAK, Mood label head Nicole Moudaber, party starter Mall Grab, the always cultured Maya Jane Coles and global starVintage Culture, as well as plenty more from wAFF, Lee Foss, Mason Maynard, Andrea Oliva, Ben Hemsley, Eli Brown, Shermanology, Nic Fanciulli and plenty more.
