Croatia festivals are the main highlight of every tourist’s visit to this culturally rich country. This is the ultimate destination for music lovers, as Croatia holds several music festivals each year. The whole place also comes alive with Croatia festivals, which are celebrated annually for the delight of locals and tourists alike. Here are some of their festivities:

Split Festival

This music festival has been held every year in Split, Croatia since 1960. There are 800 compositions of pop music performed during this festival. If you’re looking for talent, this is the place to start looking.

Festival of Dalmatian Klapas Omis

Singing without the accompaniment of musical instruments is what makes this music festival stand out. It is held annually at St. Michael’s square, where individual and group singers gather together and compete. The theme usually revolves around love, country and sea, with an emphasis on harmony and melody.  

Soundwave Festival Croatia

Imagine nonstop partying at the beach while dancing to funky music for three days. That’s exactly what the Soundwave festival offers. You can enjoy swimming at the crystalline blue sea, listening or dancing to live music, and partying with friends in a private beach. You can also join boat parties and meet new acquaintances
