Obonjan, the festival of Dreams

A short sail from Šibenik lays Obonjan, a short journey from both Split and Zadar “tucked among a cluster of outcrops and bedecked with pine and olive trees”. From the creators of Hideout and Unknown, Obonjan is the zen older sister, promising ambient electronics and sunset soundtracks, yoga, delicious food and lots of relaxation.

In the daytime there’s plenty of activities to keep you occupied, there’s an open and inclusive programme of wellbeing activities across Obonjan including East London spirit junkies She’s Lost Control invite you to their zen den alongside a host of international friends from across their high vibe world, to deliver workshops, classes and talks that will enrich and enliven.

Obonjan is revolutionising the festival experience, allowing all the things you love in one experience; sun, sea, tranquility and music, with a strong emphasis on ecology and wellbeing. The island sleeps up to 400 guests in bell tents and cabins, which looks positively delightful. And, organisers say it’s the first festival where you can stay as long as you like, with the festival programme taking place over 6 weeks, beginning on the 28th July.
