Outlook Festival celebrates a decade of sound system culture in Croatia with the likes of Dizzee Rascal, Wiley, Goldie, Princess Nokia, a twenty piece Outlook Orchestra, plus so much more.
Starting as a 600 person convoy to Croatia in 2008, and now one of the leading bass parties in the world, Outlook Festival has been making history since day dot. A four day celebration of all things sound system related, the annual party unites breakthrough acts and founding fathers from the worlds of dubstep, jungle, drum and bass, hip-hop, grime, garage and beyond.
Between 6th-10th September 2017, Outlook Festival present a lineup set to shake the walls of Croatia’s Fort Punta Christo, as the crew mark a decade in the game. With tickets moving at a record rate and Outlook selling out faster than ever last year, these will not last long. Final early bird weekend tickets can be purchased for just £130. SEE YOU AT THE FORT.
Over 100 artists old and new take over the abandoned fortress and beach for what will be the most monumental Outlook to date. Outlook Festival’s foundations are cemented in dub and reggae, and there’s always a solid contingent repping. This year includes the expert on dub and selector extraordinaire Adrian Sherwood, plus a live performance from the nine piece Gentleman’s Dub Club. Fresh from a standout performance at the Outlook Orchestra, the queen Dawn Penn provides classic jams, whilst there’ll be more reggae explorations from Eva Lazarus, and Dub Dynasty. On a darker end of the dub scale is The Bug, who’ll push the custom systems to the limits, with the unmistakable sounds of Israeli MC Miss Red.
A lot can change over ten years, but Outlook Festival’s dedication, passion and ability has secured their place as one of the leading festival promoters worldwide. Though grown, the family feels the same, with artists and punters coming back year on year to experience and discover new music on world class, bespoke built sound systems. From the ambitious settings (we’ve all seen the speaker stacks in The Moat), to blissful boat parties, the team have never shied away from taking things to the next level. Whilst staying firmly grounded to their roots of course.
Here’s to another ten.
