This year I headed back to Tisno in Croatia, but this time to play for the first time at the much raved about LOVE INTERNATIONAL festival.

Love International

I’m a massive fan of the festival set up down at Tisno having played there for many years at events such as Electric Elephant and Lost Disco. For me the events there are now the industry standard and lead the way now for summer raving.

The local town Tisno is such a beautiful, laid back spot full of cosy wee restaurants, friendly locals and deadly rakia. So every visit is a pleasure. Especially to my favourite restaurant Carmen which simply has one of the best vibes and views you can get as you sit there chilling out on their waterside deck. Stick it on your list!

Love International took over the early summer spot from the original Garden Festival which launched the whole Croatian festival scene way back. And LOVE INTERNATIONAL are certainly ruling it now alongside other top events by Suncebeat, Defected and Dekmantel which all happen in the same party location.

The line ups at LOVE INTERNATIONAL are pretty enormous and very well programmed with some of the best musicmakers and selectors from around the globe all gathering together in an atmosphere that is always packed out and 100% party.

Over the years the organisers have also made a number of interesting innovations such as the early morning chill out/Balearic sessions, a repositioning of the beach stage and the creation of the now established Olive Grove which is one of the most popular places to play tucked away near the pier that the party boats depart from. It’s blend of beach location with club vibe and top sound make it really special.

And it was to The Olive Grove that we headed this year for an all day Disco Deviance affair featuring myself, Ray Mang and all the way from Rio our amigo Joutro Mundo. It was an epic day out with friends and the feeling was strong on the floor. Big love to everyone who danced that day.

In the lead up to the event I did a promo mix on my page to highlight our performance. You can check it out here. A blend of different vibes that get played at the event.


Ray Mang also did a warm up mix for it over on the Disco Deviance page which is also ace and you can check that one out here.



Lastly would like to say a big thanks to LOVE INTERNATIONAL for having us to play. It was seriously good fun x
