The organisers behind major events such as Field Day, Warehouse Project and Hideout have come together for a collaboration of their festival expertise to create Unknown Festival. The event is to be held in Rovinj, Northern Croatia on the 10th – 14th September this year with a line-up that already boasts a whole host of world class DJ’s and talent including Mercury Music nominees Django Django, Brit nominee Jessie Ware, Totally Enormous Extinct Dinosaurs, Disclosure, Four Tet, Henrick Schwarz, Daniel Avery, Erol Alkan, SBTRKT, Jamie XX, Joy Orbison and Floating Points (to name just a few) with even more acts to be confirmed at a later date.
Seeing acts of this caliber is an exciting prospect in itself but one that becomes even more enticing when you imagine watching it all surrounded by beautiful rolling hills, crystal waters or in a secluded forests with pretty much guaranteed perfect weather in the sunny Northern Croatian resort, Rovinj.
Tom Baker of Field Day Festival commented on the recent collaboration: “I’m really thrilled to be working with Hideout and The Warehouse Project on a brand new event that combines brilliant live bands alongside some of the best and cutting edge DJs in the world, in a setting of glorious sunshine, clear blue skies and wonderful beaches!! What could be better!"
