An Island turned into an Idyllic Music Hub

The UK-based promoter behind Croatia’s Unknown Festival has acquired the island of Obonjan, which it plans to turn into the world’s first curated entertainment tourist destination.

The UK-based promoter behind Croatia’s Unknown Festival has acquired the island of Obonjan, which it plans to turn into the world’s first curated entertainment tourist destination.


“We’ve been working on this project for three years which has given us time to carefully refine our ideas,” said Sound Channel’s Dan Blackledge. “Our vision for the island of Obonjan is to regenerate the island and turn it into a truly unique concept, combining art and music, wellness, sustainable living, amazing food and drink and fun and creative accommodation, all on an idyllic island paradise.”


The festival's concept "will evolve year on year, hosting hundreds of musicians, artists, philosophers, chefs and more".


This UK promoter has previously attracted thousands of fans to its experience-driven Unknown Festival, located in the town of Rovinj by the Adriatic, featuring artists including Chvrches, Nile Rodgers, Disclosure and Jungle performing during five days and nights of concerts, boat, forest and island parties.


With its attractive coastline, cheap tickets and travel costs, Croatia is rapidly becoming a leading European music festival destination.


Partying on an island isn’t a new concept. When you have a sole promoter in charge of the festivities, you can expect things to be a bit different.


Entertainment events will begin on the island from summer 2016.
