One-day tickets (Chris Brown performance)
One of the biggest names in r&b, Chris Brown needs little introduction. Skyrocketing to success after his debut single Run It hit the top of the Billboard chart back in 2005, Chris Brown has since released seven studio albums, five of those platinum, along with a multitude of singles and major collaborations. For the first time a huge stage will be built on the beach for thousands of fans to watch the Grammy winner perform right next to the water on the final night. A renowned live tour-de-force and with no performances planned for the UK for the next year, Brown’s Fresh Island debut will be one of the musical highlights of the summer.
Following the success of last year, VICE’s Noisey return to the shores of Croatia to host another Adriatic edition of their famed Grime Karaoke series. Last year saw Stormzy, Big Narstie and hundreds of revellers spit bars in the sun for the ultimate grime pool party. Following Big Narstie’s spiritual awakening on the beach in 2015, the BDL MC returns to bring the bass along with Radio 1Xtra’s Sian Anderson delivering the beats, while Beat 1 DJ Julie Adenuga is onboard to host the madness.
Returning for its fifth anniversary in 2016, Fresh Island takes over the open air clubs of Aquarius, Kalypso and Papaya on Zrce beach and is the only beach festival in Europe where you’ll see DJs, MCs, boat parties, pool parties and more representing the absolute best in hip-hop, r&b and grime. Three day tickets are on sale from just £89 and VIP tickets are available from £239. Those who just want to catch the Chris Brown’s performance can buy day tickets from £55.
