Surgeon will headline RA's moat party at Dimensions festival 2013.50 Comments
The event will take place on Friday, September 6th, in a moat located next to the 19th century fort in Pula, Croatia, which Dimensions calls home. The bill is resolutely focused on techno: in addition to Surgeon, we've invited his Trade partner Blawan, Fachwerk co-founder Mike Dehnert and jack specialist John Heckle. Rounding out the bill is party techno duo Dense & Pika, who will perform live. The party will go down the night before our boat party, which features FunkinEven, Kode 9, Roman Flugel and xxxy.
Details have also been revealed of a Dimensions opening party, to be held inside a 2000-year-old Roman amphitheatre in Pula. Mount Kimbie, Andrew Ashong and Portico Quartet have all been confirmed for that one, with another big-name guest due to be announced next month.

Hideout Festival has announced a bevy of pool parties as part of its 2013 edition.156 Comments
As previously reported, the now sold-out festival, which features headliners like Bicep, Joy Orbison, Cassy and Four Tet, will be held at Zrce Beach on the Island of Pag in Croatia from July 3rd through 5th. Unlike the boat parties announced a few months back, the pool parties don't require revelers to pay any extra to attend. And the parties certainly add some extra value to the regular admission ticket, with offerings this year catering well to the poolside locale. Ibiza veterans CircoLoco will host a party, as will another brand that's fast becoming an island staple, Hot Creations. Claude VonStroke's Dirtybird label, Heidi presents the Jackathon and Jackmaster's Numbers contingent have also signed on. The full pool party lineup is available for your perusal on Hideout's official website.
