This week enchanting Punat on the island of Krk for the seventh time, it will become a unique backdrop to one of the best domestic art and music projects - the Velvet Festival.
Everything is ready for the start of this ultimate summer event that is not to be missed, and the program starts this Thursday, June 29. Selected music, great concerts and DJs, swimming, fun at boat parties, diverse gastronomic offer and absolute hedonism with 40 performers, four stages, five boat parties and a karaoke booth will last until July 2.
Velvet attracted a large number of visitors from Croatia, as well as young people from even 22 countries of the world who will enjoy the rhythms of different musical genres such as electronic, indie rock and hip hop music. It is therefore not surprising that all festival camps and boat parties are sold out, with only a limited number of festival and one-day tickets remaining.
Some of the biggest names in the music scene are in charge of three days of top music and an impressive lineup. Grammy-nominated PVA, regional stars Butch Cassidy, who recently sold out Šalata, The Zenmenn, freekind., exotic Nemanja, Australian Hector Gachan and many other regional performers will perform live. The DJ program hosts many international stars such as NTS Radio resident Shy One from London, world-famous selector Raphael Top Secret, Italian Napoli Segreta and Eternal Love, as well as young and old representatives of the disco and electronic scene from the entire region such as Feloneezy, Aleksandra Hrib , Adriatic Social Club, Little Lu, Deeport DJs and the pioneer of the yu-disco scene in the 70s and 80s – Peđa Radović.
In addition to music, festival visitors will be able to relax in the ambiance of a nearby camp with a welcome package for sun protection, yoga classes and delicious Matcha for a perfect start to the day. As Velvet is also a kind of showcase of photography and design, exclusive merch created in collaboration with designers Rina Malac and Sonja Tomić and designer Pavlo Trifunić will be available at the festival, and the brands Moje More, Adriatic Club and Brze Guze will also be presented.
The fantastic and intimate atmosphere of the festival will also be contributed to gastronomic offer which this year will be taken care of by the former sous chef of the Mano2 restaurant and the chef of the Vila Rove hotel in Malinska, Marin Pleše, former MasterChef candidate Tihomir Krklec, better known as Afrika, and the team of the popular street seafood festival Hook & Cook.
A wide range of beers on Velvet is brought by the twice-awarded best brewery in Europe - The Garden Brewery, which will offer visitors everything from a classic lager, IPE, Pils, Pale Ale to fruity Florida Weisse, with a special packaging technology that allows the beer to stay cold as long as possible and freshly.
