Just now got back from Croatia. What a place it is, beautiful country and the locals are all friendly as hell. The festival was a very good show considering it what their first year, though it did struggle for numbers I felt but there was still a good sized crowd there. Stages need setting up better next year if they do another one as you could hear the music from all 3 stages clashing if you were sat at the beach bar they had which gave one hell of a headache. I'd definitely go again though, wouldn't do the camping though, trying to get some sleep in 25 degree heat at 3am isn't fun.
I've just got back from touring Croatia for the past three weeks and managed to take in Hideout Festival. That was on Pag Island, Zrce Beach.. not the same set up surely? It looked like they weren't taking it all down so who knows.
As for Hideout, I can safely say that it wasn't my thing/crowd. Still had a good time but not quite up my street anymore. My Missus and the other couple we went with enjoyed the likes of Major Lazor etc but it just wasn't for me. Highlights for me were catching Basement Jaxx (DJ set) infront of about 10 people at a secret gig they forgot to announce.... Nice to see a couple of geezers still enjoying banging the tunes out though, enjoyed them. Marco Carola always a safe bet and surprisingly B Traits was pretty good, after she had done her live Radio 1 stuff anyway. It absolutely pissed it down on the last day and most people didn't even bother rocking up but we went out, got wet, got fucked up and had a good time dancing back the years.
