Electric Elephant returns to its stunning new home The Garden Tisno from Thurs 11th - Mon 15th July, for 5 days and 5 nights of sun, sea and music in a truly idyllic location on the Dalmatian coast. One of Croatia's founding events, this is the festival's 6th year which is introducing a wave of debut guests including Heidi and Miguel Campbell, as well as familiar faces Andrew Weatherall & Sean Johnston, Optimo, Ivan Smagghe and Ewan Pearson who all return in 2013.
The Garden Tisno is a picture perfect paradise on the Adriatic coast, with the natural amphitheatre of the main stage and the secluded sandy bay and beach bar overlooking the crystal clear sea. During the afternoon and evening there are voyages on the legendary Argonaughty which sets sail out across the glittering Adriatic waters, and the sublime magic continues with nightly after parties at the amazing outdoor club, Barbarellas, to party under the stars and see the sun rise. The new site features onsite apartments, luxury Shikar tents and more to see and do, whilst Tisno itself is a picture-postcard town with plenty of restaurants, shops, bars and accommodation options.
In such an evocative setting it's no wonder everyone wants to come back and play each year, so the first wave of DJs includes a mix of brand new names as well as tried and tested EE-defining DJs. More names will be revealed in early 2013.
