For Festival 2015

Music, Music festivals

Details have yet to be released, but one thing is certain when it comes to chic, boutique island festival FOR - it's going to be cool. The creation of eccentric Aussie label Modular Recordings, the festival is held on Hvar, Dalmatia's swankiest and most exclusive island idyll. The magic takes place at two key venues (Club Veneranda and Carpe Diem Beach) and even in the historic Venetian town of Hvar itself. Now in its third year, exclusivity and the VIP atmosphere seem a fixture; tickets are restricted to a mere 2000 a day, so there'll be no three-hour queues for drinks and toilets. Known for its popularity with celebrities including Beyonce, Jay-Z and even Prince Harry, who famously threw himeslf into Veneranda's pool fully-clothed, the island's not cheap, but it really is a paradise. The festival bills itself as out of the ordinary, and last year's eclectic and impressive line-up certainly proved this to be true: Mark Ronson, Solange Knowles, Klaxons and James Blake, to name but a few, performed all hours to enthralled audiences both indoors and on the sand. The question this year is, especially after organisers announced a two-month set-back in festival dates, who will take to the stage next?
