Love International Festival makes first lineup announcement


If you were one of the many lucky ones to have spent some of your summer on a beach in the Adriatic, sunburn, sunglasses and boat parties may now feel like a distant memory. Yet as the dust only begins the settle in Croatia, we have just been treated to a line-up announcement that’ll send many secretly opening Skyscanner in a new tab at their desks.

It’s fair to say quite a few of us were sad to hear the Garden party calling it quits after a decade of throwing one of the nicest festivals in Croatia but, like a phoenix rising from the ashes, the same team is bringing us Love International this year at the same beautiful location.

Their first wave of artist announcements reads like a winning combination of DJ Top Trumps, featuring *deep breath* Dixon, Motor City Drum Ensemble, Ben UFO and previous STW guests Gerd Janson, Hunee, Joy Orbison and Tama Sumo. Midland, Prosumer, Craig Richards and Horse Meat Disco also join to cause some serious dancefloor damage. Perhaps the most interesting announcement though is the brilliant Thai-funk pioneers Khruangbin, whose silky, laid back blues has been a big hit for us this year (check their recent City Guide mix), and sets the tone nicely for a new dimension in the Garden this year.

Tickets are now available from the Love International website, and if you need any more convincing check out Crack’s video from Garden last year.
