Outlook Festival returns to Croatia this September after last year’s best ever event to date, a celebratory fusion of dub, reggae, hip-hop, drum ‘n’ bass, garage, house and more on the dazzling Adriatic coast.
Dizzee Rascal, DJ Shadow, and Princess Nokia are set to appear at Outlook Festival in Croatia this September, which is marking its 10th anniversary with a characteristically eclectic line-up.
The festival, which unfolds in the idyllic confines of the abandoned Fort Punta Christo in the seaside town of Pula, is once again presenting a line-up influenced by soundsystem culture with acts spanning drum ‘n’ bass, garage, dubstep and grime.
Since it was founded in 2008, Outlook has grown from 1,500 ticket holders to 15,000. During this time, dubstep has given way for grime as the genre du jour, with Wiley and AJ Tracey among acts representing this thriving scene this year.
Outlook Festival is the largest Soundsystem Culture festival in Europe, bringing together the biggest names from the most vibrant and cutting edge dance scenes around.
During four days at the end of summer, the festival is set in an abandoned fort perched above the Adriatic sea, next to a beach right near Pula, Croatia.
When we talk about bass music we don’t mean the bastardised commercial version currently being sold to children, we mean underground dancefloor music, whether it be house, techno, dubstep, reggae, dub, hiphop, garage, grime, electronica, etc.
As Duke Ellington puts it “There are two kinds of music. Good music, and the other kind.”
Now approaching its tenth year, Outlook has grown rapidly and is going from strength to strength. Anyone who has come to any of the last nine Outlooks will tell you how amazing the vibe was, how wicked the music was, how beautiful the smiling people were and how stunning the setting is.
