Defected Croatia has revealed their Phase 2 of world-class artists for 2018, including Dennis Ferrer, Soul Clap, Riva Starr, Dan Shake, DJ Gregory, Black Motion and more, joining an already comprehensive billing of international house greats, underground heroes and disco masters.
Returning to The Garden, Tisno on August 9th -14th for six days of incredible house music and sunshine, the festival’s third yearly instalment is shaping up to be the biggest yet.
Making their Defected Croatia debuts alongside Phase 1 headliners Dimitri From Paris and Masters At Work are artists from across the board of international talent, including French house legend DJ Gregory, Mahogani Music prodigy Dan Shake, breakthrough kid DJ Boring, Soulfuric head Brian Tappert, Crazy P co-founder Hot Toddy (playing solo as well as with the Crazy P crew) and Glitterbox hit-maker Sophie Lloyd, to name only a few. Back by popular demand, New York maestro and Defected favourite Dennis Ferrer joins the headliners, returning to Defected Croatia for his third year after a memorable performance to close out proceedings at the beautiful Olive Grove last year. South African duo Black Motion will be bringing back their tribal house sound, making the trip to the festival once again after tearing up the Main Stage in 2017 with their explosive live set. More acts now added include Angelo Ferreri, Lorenz Rhode (live), Armless Kid, Copyright, Fred Everything and Jamie 3:26, covering the whole spectrum of house flavours across the festival week.
A gathering for the extended Defected family from around the world, Defected Croatia 2017 saw 3,000 house heads from the UK, Australia, L.A., South Africa and all corners of Europe come together to experience six glorious days of house music heaven, the ultimate festival escape. Like all Defected events the festival is a family affair; house heads of all generations and their favourite DJs united on the shores of the Adriatic.
