Hideout Festival has announced a bevy of pool parties as part of its 2013 edition.114 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.
