Spanning three venues across the idyllic ancient island of Hvar, and incorporating a diverse, thoughtful line-up of genre-pushing artists, FOR (named for the island's ancient moniker) is a non-traditional music festival for a discerning music lover. During the day, attendees can swim in the aqua Mediterranean waters, explore the island's historical sites, partake in local activities such as rock climbing, sailing, or kayaking, and feast on local culinary delights. Starting from mid afternoon each day, the programming will take attendees from an outdoor beach party hosted by a different party crew daily, to Hvar's premiere performance area for an eclectic live show, then to a late night party brought to you by some of the most interesting and innovative names in dance and electronic music.
Only 2000 tickets are available for FOR 2013, making the music festival one of the world's most intimate.
