Dimensions festival is the ultimate amalgamation. Music, history and holiday combine to create one of the must attend festivals this year. Sharing a space with its bassy big brother Outlook Festival, Dimensions is set to take place at Fort Punta Christo- a national heritage site in Pula, Croatia from 27th August-31st August. Moats, dungeons and forts form the backdrop as the world’s best in electronic music take to the stage or take to the decks. This year the week kicks off with the opening concert at Croatia’s own Roman amphitheatre where headliners include the scorched sonic of Darkside’s most recent release Psychic and the equatorial soundscapes of Caribou. The aforementioned coupled with some trippy visuals will come together to bring the ruins to life. You’d be wrong to miss it. But if their performance fails to impress, you could always take it back to 27BC and make them fight bears in gladiator sandals.
Following the opening party the Adriatic coast will play host to the likes of Nina Kraviz, Floating Points, Jon Hopkins, Baths and Eliphino to name but a few. The festival boasts a higher spec of sound systems than any other festival of its size this year and it’s a good job too given the line up. Mungo’s arena will once more accommodate Mungo’s hi-fi, lovingly transported all the way from Scotland whilst nine other historic relics are reanimated for a week with a whole new purpose. Dimensions festival doesn’t end at the coast though. This year will see around 200 boat parties take to the sea across the span of the week. Think less Magaluf wet t-shirt competitions more watching the sun set over the Istrian coastline on one of the most intimate off shore venues to the sound of your favourite MC or DJ. So if you fancy a holiday/a festival/history/fun you should head to the website where you can find the full line-up and tickets.
