Defected Croatia has announced the next round of artists joining the festival for its fifth annual instalment in August 2020. Jayda G, Artwork and Endor will be making their debuts, alongside The Vision, Kiddy Smile, Dimitri From Paris, Dennis Cruz, Eats Everything, Low Steppa, Dr Packer, Roger Sanchez and more from Thursday 6th – Tuesday 11th August.
The further 22 artists join an already stellar line-up including Armand Van Helden, Honey Dijon, Purple Disco Machine, Kenny Dope, Nightmares On Wax, Folamour, Mike Dunn and many more. Thanks to consistently delivering on overall festival experience and talent with a line-up that brings together house music greats alongside current favourites, Defected Croatia has established itself a global fan base, drawing discerning house heads from all parts of the world to The Garden in Tisno for the sell-out event every year.
Jayda G is a talented selector who has been carving a significant path through the dance music underground, a welcome addition to the line-up for those who enjoy the soulful, funking and obscure disco end of Defected’s wide spectrum of sound. Joining her among the headliners is Artwork, the much loved British DJ whose sets never fail to get the party started, with his charismatic mix of house, disco and acidic pumpers. Responsible for Defected’s crossover smash ‘Pump It Up’, which is currently cruising through the UK’s Official Chart and clocking up record streaming numbers around the world, Endor takes his place on the line-up bringing his boisterous late night sound to the festival.
Back by popular demand will be Mixmag cover star Kiddy Smile, 2019’s most critically acclaimed breakthrough act The Vision, and of course festival favourites Honey Dijon, Horse Meat Disco and Eats Everything, not to mention live performances from the unmissable Crazy P and iconic Inner City.
Aside from the unbeatable array of artists and DJ’s, Defected Croatia’s idyllic setting is what keeps music lovers returning year on year. The Garden, Tisno has set the scene for the festival perfectly since 2016. Every day festival-goers can choose from beach parties, boat parties, Main Stage and Olive Grove sets, a wellbeing programme of meditation and yoga sessions and after-parties at the legendary Barbarella’s nightclub, all with a backdrop of Adriatic sea and endless sunshine.
