Still buzzing from Hideout Festival last month, the glittering Adratic coast of Croatia's Zrce will play host to more thumping beats when the DJ Mag/MTV dream-team takes over Papaya Beach Club again between 13th - 17th August.
After the success of last year's event, which saw party animals from across the globe rubbing shoulders with SOS, SHM and Glenn Morrison, things are going to get even meatier this year, with Papaya debuts from progressive house heavyweights Joachim Garraud (16th August) and Alesso (17th August), and techno talents Reboot and Mirko Loko (15th August).
On top of that, international trance DJ wizard Eddie Halliwell, founder and owner of FIUR records, will own the outdoor arena with his Fire It Up! show on Tuesday 14th August, with support from AN21 & Max Vangeli.
“I'm buzzing about it,” Eddie told DJ Mag. “The chance to play in an outdoor arena as the sun comes up is too good to miss!”
We've also got Danny Howard, newly appointed presenter of the BBC Radio 1 Dance Anthems, who'll play at the Bitch afterparty.
“So excited to be playing at the DJ Mag festival for Bitch in Croatia,” said Danny. “Papaya Beach Club is gaining worldwide recognition as one of THE go-to places for clubbing and I can't wait to party there this summer!'”
