The Festival Site
The Garden Tisno is set in a gently hilly area which overlooks our own private bay with a shimmering sandy beach and crystal clear waters. The village of Tisno, split between the mainland and the island of Murter, is just a ten-minute walk away, with a host of restaurants, cafes, apartments and small boutique hotels. Situated between Zadar and Split airports, our musical haven is easy accessible from all over Europe. Check out a range of travel options here.

Once the sun sets on the beautiful Dalmatian coast, we’ll take you to Barbarella’s, a magnificent, outdoor afterhours club we can party under the stars with the worldwide SuncéBeat family.

As usual we’ll be running our twice daily parties on the Argonaughty, including sunset trips close to the wonderful Kornati Islands, partying around the main stage and Tiki bar by day and Barbarella’s club by night. The entire site runs along a shimmering shoreline: dancing beside the glittering waters under a sizzling sun or a moonlit sky, and with fiery Funktion 1 systems installed across the site, it will sound as good as it looks!

Memories!
The cold weather is now upon us, but we’re already planning next year’s adventure… Check out a few of these videos to help lift any SuncéBlues!
