Memories from a historic 10th anniversary are still etched into the minds of all who attended, but today Dimensions looks forward to summer 2023. Croatia’s most forward thinking festival is back at new and already much loved home The Garden Resort in Tisno from August 31 – 4th September with another untouchable mix of cult stars, pioneering legends and new school talents as well as the famous boat and label parties, live sets, back-to-back exclusives, debuts and much more. For full information and tickets, head to www.dimensionsfestival.com.
The sweeping secluded bay, towering pines and gorgeous sea views of Croatia’s Garden Resort has proven to be a perfect setting for Dimensions, which is all about high quality production, carefully curated line-ups and crowds of serious music lovers. It now has a real family feel built up over 10 previous editions that makes every dance a special one where musical memories are made and new bonds formed. Whether that’s while sailing out to sea on one of the array of hugely popular boat parties, baking in the sun as DJs drop warm beats on the beach, getting freaky at an afters or dancing under star-lit skies at the cult Barbarella’s Discotheque is up to you, but rest assured there is no finer place to spend your summer getaway.
This summer, Dimensions has poured heart and soul into another rich and diverse musical programme that covers all shades of bass, house, techno, electro, garage, disco and plenty in between. Much of that will be overseen by the welcomed return of popular label and brand partners such as the one and only Fabric, Bristol label Dr Banana, Berlin mobile record store and DJ duo The Ghost, London party and label Butter Side Up, Welsh community minded gathering Freerotation, Leeds’ legendary Subdub, plus Maricas, Heels & Souls, Casa Voyager, Picnic, Outlaws Yacht Club and more. On top of that, 2023 sees the addition of new partners such as Scotland’s leading electro label Craigie Knowes as well as the psychedelic lovers from Club Cosmos.
Some firm festival favourites and long-standing affiliates return including blistering techno from Helena Hauff, high speed electro from Detroit’s Stingray, heady house and minimal from The Ghost, tasteful eclecticism from Josey Rebelle and stylish spaced out electronic sounds from Hamish & Toby.
In terms of debuts, Italian techno sculptor Donato Dozzy will play for the first time while Sugar Free and Peach play back to back for the first time on any line-up with further b2bs scheduled from Malika & Matthew Neequaye, Christian AB & Quest, Gene On Earth & Dyed Soundorom, Youandewan & Huerta, Masda & Evan Baggs, tINI & Doudou MD, and Roza Terenzi & D. Tiffany.
Live shows are always a big part of Dimensions and this year Sweely, [email protected], Hieroglyphic Being, OCB aka Driss Bennis and Steevio all line-up while lovers of heavy weight bottom ends have plenty to look forward to as Mala, Iration Steppas, LTJ Bukem, Josey Rebelle, Tim Reaper, Om Unit and Tasha all bring their finest bass next to Skee Mask, Objekt, Anz, Bluetoof and others who will be repping a rich take on UK centric electronic sounds.
On top of this there will searing electro from Assault, Freakenstein, DJ Bone and Helena Hauff (who also brings her Presents concept with another hard-hitting line-up ), plus UKG and beyond with Dr Banana who return with a stellar takeover featuring Lady Passion, Perception, Enchanted Rhythms and more, while otherworldly explorations come from Sybil, Carl H, Simon Scott and GiGi FM. ISAbella brings her MARICAS party back to Tisno with a special takeover and you can expect mind bending sets from Nicholas Lutz, Onur Ozer, Unai Trotti and Raphael Carrau amongst many more.
There’s still plenty to be announced including the unmissable after party programme at Barbarellas Discotheque. Last year’s takeovers included The Ghost x Limousine Dream, Truants and Planet Euphorique. Passes to all three nights are currently available from £30 via bit.ly/D23Afters.
Let’s not forget the boat parties; 3-hour sessions on the crystal clear waters of the Adriatic with some of the finest artists, labels and collectives around. Details soon to be shared.
Dimensions is a must-attend festival for underground music lovers and it always sells out. Get your tickets early at www.dimensionfestival.com.
