You want a few crazy days, far away from home, with your best friends, with awesome music, drinks, food, facilities and the party week of your life? Well, no problem boys and girls, there is one organizer, offering the solution – Yeah, I’m talking about Hard Island Festival!


What comes to your mind, when you think of the ultimate party experience within the harder styles? Probably of course all huge outdoor events such as Wish Outdoor, Decibel, Defqon.1, Intents Festival and many more. But after a few years in a row at the same event could be boring, right? Yes I know, the Line-up, theme and more is always different, but, and this is what I personally think, there is so much more to do and experience!

So, grab your best buddies and friends, go abroad to Croatia and celebrate Hard Island Festival with hundreds of fellows.


Experience amazing summer vibes while surrounded by two of Croatia’s most beautiful mountain peaks, crisp blue water and sunny skies. Location of Hard Island is what truly sets it apart from any other festival.

In this article I want to give you a quick overview about last year’s edition and I tried to write down what to expect from this year’s edition – we’re really excited, but are you?

Hard Island 2015

2015 was the very first edition of Hard Island festival, but already had a huge success. It was different, new and somehow interesting to most of the people.
The line up was huge, packed with different labels, brands and acts. We had Q-Dance, Hardcore Italia with a 20 years special, Dirty Workz and Unite Records, which brought you the ultimate line up. Huge names like Coone, Wildstylez, Code Black, Da Tweekaz, Mad Dog, Zatox, Kronos, Anime and Art of Fighters made you dance into the sunset.


Island of Pag is situated on the western part of the Croatian coast. Known for its moonscape appearance, sun bleached karst rock forms set the feeling of another planet, trapped between two mountain ridges, surrounded by clear blue sky and crystal blue water.

It leads me to one of the most important aspects – the weather and location. Croatia is beautiful and the party island Nr.1. Hot bikini babes, the shining sun, beautiful weather, a 1-km long beach, with a stunning view, already called the new Ibiza! Seriously, it was really one of a kind and was just awesome! The whole location is amazing on its own, the music and the people made it special.


The parties took place in a beach club, with a pool, the stage and a few lounger, a bar and the VIP area! But besides the beach club parties you could also visit the boat parties, which were even crazier. Just imagine a small boat, packed with a kick-ass sound system and lots of party people – hell yeah, what a party.

So the overall experience was beyond our all expectations and besides all the big festivals worth to look at!
