Following their recent decision to end operations in Mallorca, the people behind Ibiza Rocks have announced the launch of a new festival under the ‘Rocks’ banner in 2015 in Croatia, a joint venture with the country’s existing Hideout Festival. The Croatia Rocks event will be more of a conventional festival, taking place from 20-23 Jul on Zrce Beach, with a mixture of DJs and live acts.

Launching the event, Shane Murray, Brand Director at Ibiza Rocks Group told reporters: “We’ve been excited about Croatia and the potential for the Rocks brand for some time and working with Hideout was always our number one priority. They bring success, infrastructure and credibility to the table. It’s the next natural step for us to launch a festival and it’s the right time to move into Croatia. As Rocks reaches ten years its a significant new chapter in our story. We look forward to becoming part of what is already a rich and diverse festival scene”.

Meanwhile Steve Allison of the Hideout Festival added: “As Hideout reaches five years and Croatia moves into the next phase of music tourism we are delighted to partner with Ibiza Rocks and deliver their first festival. With our local knowledge and success in delivering major events in Croatia combined with Ibiza Rocks’ credentials, this partnership will further cement Croatia as a recognised and influential part of the European festival summer”.
