Taking place in June, the new festival in Croatia also features Inxec, Droog, SpectraSoul, and more.
The first Echo will take place on Buba Beach in the town of Makarska on Croatia's Adriatic coast, with the lineup—consisting of dubstep, drum & bass, house, techno, reggae, and hip-hop—spread over two stages. The Simply Stage appears more oriented towards the bass music end of the spectrum, hosting the aforementioned headliners in addition to Deadboy and Hackman, drum & bass DJs S.P.Y, SpectraSoul, and Lenzman, and dubstep DJs Tes La Rok and Von D. Meanwhile, the "DJ & Sound Stage" is geared more towards house, headlined by UK DJ Inxec and US trio Droog.
The festival has an emphasis on affordability, with the first wave of tickets at £35 and the promise of competitively priced refreshments. The outdoor site offers rentable campsites as well as apartments within walking distance. Other festival amenities and attractions include "24-hour bungee jumping" and jet-skiing and para-sailing among other seaborne activities.
