Electric Elephant is one of the more chilled-out Croatian affairs, with DJs throwing around house, tech, balearic, disco and funk beats over five sun-kissed days
New Jersey house pioneer Kerri Chandler is the biggest draw, with other beatmasters like Andy Weatherall, Psychemagik and Watford's most happening electronica duo Maribou State. A great lineup and a great atmosphere, even if the promise of a glowing, neon elephant suggested in the title has yet to be seen at the festival except by a select few who partied too hard and didn't sleep for the whole five days.
Line-up includes: Kerri Chandler, Feel my Bicep, Andrew Weatherall, Greg Wilson, Maribou State, Optimo (Espacio), Todd Terry, Low Life: Bill Brewster & Frank Broughton, Nightmares On Wax, Unabombers
The Garden, Tisno, July 7-12
