Electric Elephant have just announced two brand new headliners joining the party this summer in Croatia. Completing the billing are Tom Findlay (Groove Armada) DJ set and Simian Mobile Disco (DJ set), creating what is arguably the festival’s most inspiring lineup to date as it enters its 7th season.
Tom is half of one of the world’s biggest dance music acts; Groove Armada are a truly iconic duo whose music has been a global club and festival fixture for decades, with their recent BBC 6 Music mixes capturing the distilled essence of Electric Elephant’s sun-kissed revelry. Tom is also a brilliant individual DJ, and this is a rare chance to catch him solo in action. And speaking of duos, Simian Mobile Disco bring their vibrant electronic sounds to Tisno for the very first time. With several ground-breaking albums, remixes and singles, they have navigated a truly unique course; as seminal producers they are peerless, and as DJs they craft foot-stomping sets of finely-honed house and techno.
The cosmically-twinned seminal DJs Derrick May and Francois K also star at Electric Elephant. Derrick will be playing at the stunning outdoor setting of Barbarella’s nightclub, and Francois returns to play a very special 6 hour Beach Bar Balearic selection on Sunday from 6pm until midnight.
They all join recently added names including Good Times founder Norman Jay, celebrated beat master Motor City Drum Ensemble, Panorama Bar resident Prosumer and the intriguing Awesome Tapes From Africa. Previously announced guests include Chez Damier, Horse Meat Disco, FCL, Justin Robertson, Ashley Beedle, Rahaan, Max Essa, The Numero Group, Begin (James Holroyd), Stevie Kotey (Ambassador’s Reception), Man Power, Neil Diablo and many more.
An intimate odyssey set in a region of true beauty, the festival is one of Croatia’s founding events. Following on from last year’s eclectic lineup, Electric Elephant is once more offering a sublimely diverse range of sounds across the electronic spectrum. Set near the idyllic town of Tisno, it is a celebration of amazing music and the glorious sun, an intimate paean to dancing the night away under a starlit sky until dawn with like-minded souls from around the world.
