Friday 27th – Sunday 29th August 2010
The Garden, Petrçane, Croatia
Fast becoming a much-loved fixture on the festival circuit, Electric Elephant will return for a third bash this summer, promising cosmic, spiritual fun on the Adiriatic Sea. Electric Elephant is an escape, an adventure, a musical getaway, and a meeting of like-minded souls set within the little whitewashed fishing village of Petrcane, Croatia.
Brought to you by the team behind Manchester’s legendary Electric Chair club, Electric Elephant has once again pulled together a wonderfully wild mix of the best international and UK artists, with more live artists and eye catching DJs to be announced soon.
Fuck Buttons and The Phantom Band, who both featured in just about every ‘best of’ chart for 2009, are confirmed as Friday and Saturday night headliners, and they’re both utterly unmissable.
Electronic music comes to the live stage via Berlin’s Soundstream, which puts Frank Timm’s never-ending love for disco and refined house music to the fore. Architeq, a 23 year-old producer of cosmic/electronic hiphop from London, will be taking us on a journey from King Tubby through to Carl Craig, while PLUGS are a London-based electro-rock three-piece with a track record for incredible live shows.
Folk and acoustic sounds continue to play a vital role at Electric Elephant, and Jesca Hoop comes approved by Tom Waits and Guy Garvey, which is good enough for us. Table comb together different strands of modern folk music to create something new and wonderful, while Hannah Peel takes the delicate sounds of music boxes and a raft of other instruments to concoct gently enchanting suites.
On to the DJs and New York’s Francois K, known as the forefather of house music, headlines Friday night with a three-hour Deep Space set on the main stage. Juan Maclean brings the sound of DFA, while Andrew Weatherall returns to Electric Elephant to perform twice: a special sunset Balearic set at the beach bar and a late night jackin’ set to bring the festival to a close on Sunday. BBC 6Music DJ, filmmaker and cultural icon Don Letts will bring Roots N Reggae to the Adriatic
Richard Norris & Leo Elstob join forces to present The Time and Space Machine Vs Wig Wam, a unique, four-hour set of warped pyschedelia and spaced out disco on the beach terrace. Internationally renowned Balearic disco king Todd Terje will be keeping beach terrace revellers dancing into the night and pioneering Italian DJ Beppe Loda will be showcasing his ‘Afro Cosmic’ sound.
The futuristic house sounds of Berlin come in threes: in addition to Soundstream DJ sets come sets from Prosumer, the resident at white-hot club Panorama Bar, and exciting new producer Hunee. Sticking firmly in the future, Ramadanman – head honcho of celebrated dubstep label Hessle Audio – will be bringing the main stage Funktion 1 soundsystem to life.
At the beating heart of the Electric Elephant is Electric Chair and its residents The Unabombers, who once again headline the main stage on Saturday night. Friend of the club Ashley Beedle will bring basement soul magic from soundsystem reggae to sonic Detroit techno, alongside two other Electric Chair regulars Kelvin Andrews (taking time off from writing with some guy called Robbie Williams) and Chris Duckenfield.
Completing the current DJ line-up are UK club collectives including London’s Lowlife, Bad Passion & The Local. Manchester’s Naïve Melody and Aficionado and DJ’s Crowhead (Attic Records), Ruf Dug, Doodlebug, Rashid Khan (Content) and Francis Wooff (That Amazing Thing). Plus Stefano (Disco Outcasts), Irish Mash (HOTMILK), Mark & Wes (Cutloose), Simon Strottman (Common Cause), M. Kerenski (Discolor).
Electric Elephant is an escape, an adventure, a musical getaway, a meeting of like-minded souls set within the little white washed fishing village of Petrcane on the beautiful Adriatic coast of Croatia.
Relax in the sunshine or beneath the pines, swim in the sea and dance into the night under moonlit skies amidst breathtaking surroundings. For families, it’s a perfect place to bring the kids and unwind on the beach through the day and into the evening, for others it’s a chance to let loose and party with soul mates old and new.
Electric Elephant is a wonderfully wild mix of musicalness, international dj’s and live acts, ranging from blissed out balearica, sound system reggae, acoustic-folk and psychedelia to electronica, sunshine latin and soul, through spaced out disco and house, techno and late night futuristic jackin. Its all there in beautiful harmony.
Boat Parties too. A magical big old boat called the Argonaughty sets sail twice a day with a couple of hundred revellers partying into the twilight, pure cosmic spiritual fun on the Adriatic sea. There’s Late Night Cinema, The World Famous Pub Quiz, Massage Area, Volley Ball, Kids Playground & more all within the festival grounds
Petrcane itself is a village of good, kind people and evening markets and rustic restaurants serving fresh fish caught that day and olive oil fresh from the local groves.
There are plenty of places to rest your head. Old cottages and villas on the sea front are available for hire and theres even Camping in the woods.
Sailing boats can chartered and explore the mystical islands. Stunning national parks, waterfalls and mountains are all a short distance away. The old coastal city of Zadar with its is only a bus or taxi ride away
This is a beautiful place. It's enchanting. You'll fall in love...
Into the light, into the sun, free your mind……
