Following the cancellation of the 2020 edition, we are set to return with the biggest Croatia festival yet this August, as further additions are made to the already colossal line-up. Making up for lost time, our award-winning festival will return to The Garden, Tisno from Thursday 5th – Tuesday 10th August 2021 for six days of sun-drenched house on the Adriatic coast. A further ten artists, including Carl Craig, Floorplan, Louie Vega, Jamie 3:26 and Jaden Thompson, join 90+ DJs and live acts heading to Tisno this summer for the event, with headliners including Armand Van Helden, Honey Dijon, Jayda G, Moodymann and Purple Disco Machine. 


A year without events in 2020 has allowed The Garden, Tisno to fine-tune the festival site, making improvements like amped up lighting and sound production, cashless bars, and new-and-improved stages. The jewel in the crown of this breath-taking site, the Beach Stage, with its unobstructed views of the Adriatic, has been fully renovated and expanded, offering more beach space for daytime lounging and a larger, tiered dance floor for dancing into the night under the stars.

Defected Croatia’s idyllic setting is what keeps fans returning year on year, with The Garden setting the scene for the festival perfectly since 2016. The enhanced Beach Stage and other upgrades to the site have been designed to enrich the festival experience by fully immersing festival goers in the natural beauty of The Garden’s Adriatic setting. Every day festival-goers can choose from beach parties, boat parties, Main Stage and Olive Grove sets, a wellbeing programme of meditation and yoga sessions and after-parties at the legendary Barbarella’s nightclub.  

With our first event back, two days at colossal London venue The Drumsheds, selling out in record time, we can't wait to deliver six days of house for our community we've missed so much.

As with all planned events this summer, Defected Croatia 2021 will go ahead in accordance with UK, Croatia and EU COVID-19 regulations, and is therefore subject to change. Defected remains transparent with ticket holders and will provide regular updates regarding travel and restrictions. For more information and tickets head to
