If you love houseboating in the summer time but you’re looking for the next best thing, look no further than Wave Week. It’s an extraordinary seven-day music festival experience in Croatia aboard a yacht that sails the crystal clear Adriatic Sea.

Wave Week is the first ever music festival experience combined with a sailing trip. It’s a similar concept to houseboating – only a million times better – at one of the world’s most stunning coastlines with some of the world’s top DJs and performers.

This is not only a music festival, but also a festival of the Croatian islands, and Croatia is likely already on your travel bucket list, so what’s there to think about?

40 yachts will set sail this summer for Croatia Wave’s first ever Wave Week, an epic seven-day adventure across five of Croatia’s most stunning islands. Anja Schneider, Soul Clap, wAFF, Serge Devant, Crazy P and Simian Mobile Disco are among the artists, performers and DJs you’ll get to see live. Early Bird tickets are still available, so if you love music and paradise, mark August 13th – 20th in your calendar.

When all 40 yachts anchor at the same destinations, a true sense of community comes into play and you’ll get to know everyone on the trip as you hop from yacht to yacht to meet everyone. Think of it as meeting your next-door neighbours – and you’re all living like billionaires on yachts in paradise for the week.

If you thought the toilets at Coachella were disgusting and you hated the desert’s limited cell service and scarce WiFi, you’ll love Wave Week. Their yachts will be fully equipped with all the comforts of home: toilets, showers, WiFi – and the rooftop decks are the perfect spot for sunbathing and relaxing.

That’s not all this festival has on Coachella. Instead of covering your nose and mouth with a bandana to protect yourself from rampant desert dust, you’ll be breathing in the fresh Croatian air aboard a world-class yacht.

Instead of dying from heat-stroke, you’ll be diving into the clearest and most beautiful water you’ve ever seen.

Rather than blowing brown dirt out of your nose for seven days (yes, that’s how many days it takes for your body to rid itself of the dust) you’ll be sailing through paradise for seven days with a fresh breeze blowing and a new amazing view to wake up to each day. Just saying.

Wave Week is much more than a music festival experience. It’s probably the most unique and unforgettable festival you’ll ever be part of. The world-famous Adriatic coastline will be yours to explore, and you’ll be anchoring at more than seven jaw-dropping locations along the way.

Picture sun-drenched days of relaxation and gorgeous scenery by day, including awe-inspiring Adriatic adventures organized by your very own personal skipper who will take you to explore Croatia’s hidden gems. By night, the islands become a party-lover’s paradise.

Wave Week ticket holders will get to see Crazy P and Simian Mobile Disco DJ until the sun comes up at a secret club within a cave in Makarska. A secret cave party with Crazy P? Yes, seriously.

You’ll experience a music mecca on Brac Island’s exclusive beach club, awesome DJ performances at the award-winning Carpe Diem beach on Hvar and fresh sounds with Cuckoo Club at an abandoned fortress on the Island of Vis.

Wave Week’s music is tailored to each new day along the coast of Croatia. Each day will be a new sound. Exquisite, untouched locations give music-lovers a rare opportunity to enjoy fresh sounds within hidden gems of the islands.

Their route starts in Split, Croatia and ventures to Supertar, Makarska, Paklinksi Otoci Islands, Vis and Hvar before returning to the docks of Split. You’ll be part of a floatilla of 40 yachts carrying 250 passengers, making it one of the year’s most exclusive Croatian festivals. If you’re thinking this sounds way better than a desert festival, that’s because it is. Wave Week, here we come.
