Whilst many elements of Love International combine to create a mesmeric week under the sun and stars in Croatia, there is perhaps one quintessential aspect which quite simply can never be left out of anyone’s adventure to the idyllic coast: the boat parties.

From the very earliest days of the Croatian festival scene, right back to the Argonaughty making its debut voyage at The Garden Festival back in Petrcane, the dreamy allure of a boat party in the warm sea with lovely people and great music continues to define much of what Love International is all about. It’s a celebration of good times with like-minded people shared for a few glorious hours, sound-tracked by some of the best DJs around from across the world. The mainland is left behind and a heady odyssey takes place upon the shimmering waters of the glorious Adriatic, with both boats – the more recent addition The Martina is back this summer for the weekend – running parties twice per day during the festival’s peak.

Working with club nights, labels and collectives who are friends of the festival, the boat parties are a distilled four hours of sun-kissed magic through to star-lit lunacy, where pretty much anything goes as the action departs the little slice of coastal paradise that is Tisno. Taking in everything from deep disco, soulful excursions and crate-dug gems, through to sublime house and techno and plenty of absolute classic hands-in-the-air tracks, each and every voyage promises an abundance of fun. Don’t forget tickets go on sale Thurs 29th March at 9am: www.loveinternationalfestival.com
