UK legends The Prodigy, Slovenian singer Senidah and Turkish DJ Mahmut Orhan provided Istria with a memorable start to Croatia's festival season at the fifth running of the weekend-long Sea Star in Umag.

Returning six years after headlining the inaugural event in 2017, The Prodigy kicked off their set with their 1996 hit, Breathe, a huge favourite in former Yugoslavia.

Sea Star is organised by the team behind EXIT, a long-established music festival in Novi Sad, Serbia, where The Prodigy also headline this July.

Sea Star is held across several stages at the Stella Maris lagoon on the northern outskirts of Umag, a buzzing resort in Istria’s north-western corner.
