Music festivals in Croatia


Music lovers, rejoice! September in Croatia is packed with fun music events.

Sun, sea and starry sky — Croatia hosts an abundance of music festivals during the peak summer season. That doesn’t mean that shoulder season in Croatia is any less fun, take a look at September music events to see in Croatia!

Goulash Disko

September 11th – 15th

This unique festival takes place on one of Croatia’s most beautiful islands, Vis. Self described as a place of good music, good people and good vibes, Goulash Disko has been growing in popularity for the past five years, becoming a haven for free spirited people who enjoy partying to underground music at night and reveling in pristine nature during the day.

Outlook festival

September 4th – 8th

If you’re looking for a great place to party, you’ll probably don’t want to miss Outlook festival, Europe’s biggest celebration of sound system culture.

It’s held at Pula’s Fort Punta Christo, an abandoned 19th century fort, comfortably nestled over the Adriatic sea. With beach parties and boat parties, this festival captures the essence of summer!

Split at Night Jazz Festival

August 30th – September 1st

Jazz enthusiasts are in for a real treat in Split. Split at Night Jazz Festival features three days of world-class jazz musicians in a very special setting. The Festival is held in 1.700 year-old basements of the historic Diocletian palace, one of the best preserved monuments of the Roman architecture in the world. 

Dimensions Festival

August 28th – September 1st

Dimensions Festival has eight years of experience in creating carefully curated programmes of soulful electronic music, and is considered one of Europe’s finest electronic music festivals. It shares the same location as Outlook Festival, the magical Pula Fort Punta Christo. Seeing that they’re one after the other, maybe just attend both!

Dubrovnik u pozno ljeto  

August 30th – September 24

Dubrovnik is one of Croatia’s most well known cities, and rightfully so. Its magnificent architecture, history and heritage make it a perfect setting for evenings filled with classical music. The international music festival Dubrovnik u pozno ljeto (Dubrovnik in late summer) is a festival organised by the Dubrovnik Symphony Orchestra that takes place in the beautiful atrium of Rector’s Palace, a gothic palace with renaissance and baroque reconstruction.   

We hope you find a festival you’d like to visit! On the other hand, if you like all of them, don’t choose only one. Take a tour of Dalmatia’s music festivals, enjoy the music, food and drink.
