There is is no place like Tisno

Although it might seem like it from my blog, I’m not actually on permanent vacation! Most of the time I’m abroad I’m working but when I do take a holiday I go to the same place every year, the Electric Elephant festival in Croatia, now in its eleventh year.

For the first four years the festival was held in Petrčane (see separate post) but in 2009 it moved down the coast to Tisno, another even more charming small town by the sea.

Each year a big gang of us from Sheffield goes to the festival to party with friends from Manchester, London, Dublin and several other corners of the planet.

The highlight for us are the boat parties on the good ship Argonaught(y) which sails twice a day for the four days of the festival.

It’s a good excuse for all of us to let our hair down, not that we need any excuses.

For the last two years my music promotion Kabal has hosted one of the boat parties, with tunes provided by Kabal residents DJs Pete ‘Pipes’ Donohoe and Winston ‘Funk Master General’ Hazel.

In 2014 we had the honour of having London’s Ashley Beedle play with us (on the left).

In 2015 we played with festival founder and honorary Mancunian, Luke Unabomber.

Here’s a video of the last tune on Kaboat that year. Golden memories never to be forgotten.

And in 2016 we are looking forward to sharing the decks with our old friend George from Nightmares On Wax who hails from our neighbouring city Leeds.
