Love International is set across the beautiful coastal village of Tisno on the Adriatic.
The festival takes places over one week, set mainly in across an intimate site with its own beach, through to the open-air club, Barbarella’s, which is a short drive away.
Below is a brief breakdown of each location for the festival.
THE OLIVE GROVE
The Olive Grove has really come into its own in the last couple of years, a beautifully decorated space which showcases a series of brilliant artists, labels and clubs nights day and night. With foliage hanging from the ceiling, hexagonal lattice work and amped-up sound, The Olive Grove is a tiny hideaway nestled on the main site. It’s evolved into one of the festival’s prime locations, a shaded space where everyone is at their very best under the sun and stars.
One of the most storied water-side dance floors around the world now hosts sublime music around the clock during the peak weekend hours of Love International. Following on from last year, the booth sits resplendently on the same level as the water, creating a much more intimate feel. It could be slow-paced sun-kissed days, heavenly sessions deep into the night, or the Sunrise Sessions at dawn; the Beach Bar is one of the festival’s prime locations, looking out across Azure Adriatic waters. The Sun Rise Sessions offer either the perfect chilled way to end the night or herald the start of a new day under the pine trees by the sea, offering a mix of dub, reggae, rare beats and more.
This is the biggest space at the whole festival, yet still retaining the sense of intimacy for which the festival is famed. Catch some brilliant artists here who perform under the giant disco ball. For anyone looking to really immerse themselves into the crowd and lose themselves, this is the only place to be.
Situated at the top of the site at the restaurant, The Terezza is an unassuming little set up. But don’t be fooled. This is the place where everyone lets loose, so expect anything from crate-dug disco gems through to Balearic odysseys through to obscure funk through to pop music.
It’s the sun-kissed and star-speckled dreamy allure of a boat party with friends and great music which inspires those behind the decks and in front of them. There is something magical about boats and parties which really blends so well together, and once more Love International presents an eclectic programme with like-minded collectives, labels and parties. For four sublime hours Tisno is left behind, a distant speck on the horizon, and the boats weave past remote islands and across shimmering channels of water. There are still a few tickets remaining for selected boats at the time of going to print – ask at the box office for info.
The club has become one of the world’s most revered electronic music spaces, a sublime pine-shaded environment powered by Funktion One, nestled on the fringes of the Adriatic. As part of the festival’s programming, Barbarella’s offers something truly unique, segueing from the peak time party hours under star-filled skies through to dawn where the sky is light. It’s the booth in which every DJ wants to play and to where the festival’s mass migrates to night after night.
