We're excited to announce the second wave of artists heading to Tisno for Defected Croatia's highly anticipated return on 3rd – 8th August 2023.

With a line-up of global talent, phase two welcomes a first-time appearance from one of the biggest names in techno - 'The Wizard' Jeff Mills, who will be making his Defected Croatia debut alongside South Africa's Desiree, champion of the underground DJ Bone as Doc Ciroc and Mr Scruff. World-class acts like Derrick Carter, Jayda G, Mousse T., and London's breakthrough star TSHA also join our phase 2 line-up. Following a career-defining year in 2022, trailblazer Honey Dijon will light up the Croatia stage in addition to the legendary DJ Fat Tony, French favourite Kiddy Smile and dance-floor technicians Floorplan whose new release 'Give Thee Honor / Makes Me Wanna' is out on the 10th February on Classic.

Returning favourites Folamour, Eats Everything, Jamie 3:26 and Arielle Free will appear with rising stars LP Giobbi and Girls Of The Internet. Rounding out the eclectic mix, The Brothers Macklovitch (and A-Trak himself) promise to deliver the best in house alongside Aline Rocha, Anna Collecta, Cody Currie, DJ Holographic, KiNK, Mason Collective, and even more to be announced in phase 3.

We have also updated our Defected Croatia 2023 music playlist on streaming services, adding the best tunes from the newly announced phase 2 artists.
