Soundwave, one of Croatia's longest-running summer festivals, will return for its ninth edition this summer, and the first wave of names has just been announced. 

Heading the line-up is iconic funk, soul and jazz pioneer Roy Ayers, who'll be joined by the UK's most influential DJ Gilles Peterson. Mercury-nominated trio GoGo Penguin, Yussef Kamaal and Horse Meat Disco all feature on a characteristically eclectic line-up. 

Set in legendary festival destination Garden Tisno, boutique festival Soundwave is a heavily dance-influenced affair, but it's also a perfect place to relax and sightsee as well as party until the sun comes up. It's an easy hop by boat to the nearby Kornati islands, a short walk to the pretty fishing village of Tisno and the beach itself is clean, the water cool and clear. 

Soundwave have also announced that they'll be commissioning street artists from across Europe to transform the Garden Resort into an even more spectacular setting. And the open air cinema will return, screening independent and Croatian films - so Soundwave 2017 is set to be as diverse and laid back as usual. 

The festival runs from July 27 - 31st, and you can already book your tickets here.
