SONUS Festival is now underway in Croatia and this year will be an unforgettable experience for Techno fans from all over Europe for the lucky ones who have made the trip.

The guys behind the iconic Time Warp festival in Germany are pulling out all the stops for this years festival as they celebrate 5 years on the beautiful Pag Island. The fun continues until 24th August.

Here’s five reasons why we are jealous we are not there.

Carl Cox

The legend will be performing at Sonus for the very first time. A long time friend of Time Warp having performed at pretty much every one of them. It’s a safe bet his set will blow everyone away not least as it comes off the back of his huge PURE nights at Privilege on the White Isle.

Junction 2

The incredible London event under the M4 flyover in West London has proven itself in only 2 years to be one of the very best Techno parties in the UK. Teaming up with the guys from Cosmopop at Sonus can only be a good thing and the partnership looks set to be exciting for the future.

Seth Troxler back to back with Martinez Brothers

This is always a highlight when the party in the booth is almost better than the party on the dance floor and the guys will be joined by Magda for this one.

Friday after hours

The Friday after house are legendary and it’s like they have no end time. This year Ricardo, Sonja Moonear, Margaret Dygas and Binh will be at the controls.

Local talent

The festival supports local talent which is always good. This year the likes of Homeboy, Felver and Josip Milkovic are recognised as some of the best.

Solomun, Richie Hawtin, Sven Väth, Maceo Plex, Len Faki, Adam Beyer, Jackmaster, tINI and many, many more are also heading to Zcre Beach this week so our top five tops are very much the tip of an awesome iceberg.

With so many people looking for an Ibiza alternative this summer, Sonus Festival is definitely on the list for next year.
