Guests Enjoy Croatia Holiday SunshineLast week top Miami festival promoter Ultra, announced the headlining acts at their Ultra Europe Festival which, as MedSailors discovered a few weeks ago,  is being held in on sunny shores of Split and Hvar in Croatia the weekend of the 12th of July 2013. This festival is said to be in residency in Croatia for the following five years, creating the perfect excuse for a Croatia holiday for the next few years, complete with your own yacht charter!

Festivals of this caliber are a boon to small seaside towns such as Split and Hvar, who have so much to offer travellers and festival goers on their Croatia holiday. Hvar has become increasingly popluar over the past few years, with some incredibly famous visitors causing it to be dubbed the new Ibiza. With the likes of David Craig, David Beckham, Eva Longoria and Beyonce spending time there, Hvar is known as one of Europe’s sunniest islands and the beautiful palm lined seafronts are certainly a sight to see.

Ultra Europe announced their headline acts as follows:


This Swedish DJ exploded on the scene in 2011 with a string of hits, and has been ranked No. 3 on the Top 100 DJs list by DJ Magazine in 2012. Avicii will headline the 12th of July in Split.

Armin van Buuren

Armin van Buuren has enjoyed a prolific career internationally, and has certainly been a major player on the electronic scene for a good number of years. But if you thought this DJ has put his best years behind him, voted No 1 DJ 2007 to 2010, you would be mistaken. Armin has topped the polls again in 2012 on DJ Magazine’s Top 100, a promise that his headlining act in Hvar 13 July 2013 will be the stuff of legends. Make sure you do not miss this!

Carl Cox & Friends

Carl Cox has carved out a permanent niche in the electronic music industry, both as an innovator and as a founding father. He was there when it all began, and has continued to entertain and stay at the forefront of music scene in the UK and internationally. The line up names Carl Cox and Friends headlining the 12th and 13th of July, so keep your eyes peeled for announcements on which of his famous friends will be joining him on stage.

Tickets are an astonishingly low £40 and covers the entire festival.  This festival is in the MedSailors backyard, and you will be able to catch this festival if you join either the island hopping tour departing from Split the 6th of July or, if you prefer your Croatia vacation to end with a chilled island hopping cruise, the 20th of July departure.
