WGSN’s festival hit list: Love International 2018

Love International gets into full swing in the midst of festival season, taking over Tisno, Croatia for a week of sun, sea and an eclectic mix of music to let your hair down to. A serene location, killer line-up and good vibes all round make this Croatian festival perfect for sun-seekers and music-lovers alike. Here are five things that make this festival a must-do this summer.


Dreamy location

Combine your holiday and festival plans this year at Love International. The festival finds its home on a secluded beach on Croatia’s stunning coastline, the perfect place to relax in the day and party at night. Based in the picturesque fishing village of Tisno, step out the festival to find a host of bars, restaurants and beach spots.

Sun, sun, sun

Forget the raincoats and wellies of British festivals,  the glorious, Croatian sun is the perfect partner to the easy vibes of Love International. From sunrise to sunset, sit back and relax in a beautiful beach setting.


Music from dusk till dawn

Following in the steps of legendary Croatian event The Garden Festival, Love International has been making waves since 2016. The Garden Resort main stage is set in a natural amphitheatre that leads down to the water; a perfect spot to get your dancing shoes on (or to kick them off)! When the sun goes down, head to Barbarella’s by catching a ride from the main site and dance into the small hours.


Legendary boat parties

Take a break from the beach and hop on one of Love International’s famous boat parties. Once you’ve chosen your groove from the jam-packed party schedule, take a four-hour cruise on the crystal waters and enjoy the ride. Top picks this year include Love International veteran, Ben UFO, the covetable NTS Radio, and rough and ready electronic vibes from Four Tet.

Swimwear Street Style

Easy going and care-free, Love International’s free spirit gets revelers in the perfect summer mood. Head to down to The Garden Resort during the day to check out top festival gear with a beach twist. We’ll be there to capture the best looks.
