Music in Croatia - activities while holidaying

Croatia has a vast cultural heritage, and part of it consists of traditional music, dancing, and costumes. It is a point of pride, and it contributes to the national identity. There are several distinct musical approaches, most part of UNESCO's list of Intangible Heritage. For example, in Dalmatia, you have the local music, klapa, usually consisting of a male choir singing a capella in harmony. Also, Istrian music stands out to its unique two-part harmonies. 
The best way to experience Croatian folklore is at a local festival. But each small town and village comes with its local event you might stumble upon. Our pro tip is to visit around Easter or Christmas since local celebrations consist of several traditional activities, dances, and music. 
But you can always opt for attending one of the Croatian summer music festivals organized on the coast. Even though these feature modern approaches to music, most programs include small representations of folklore shows. The leading folklore groups are the National Folk Dance of Croatia from Zagreb and the Lindo from Dubrovnik.

Outlook Festival Pula

Outlook Festival Pula is the leading bass music event in Croatia. It is held within the illuminating walls of Pula's Fort, Punta Christo, which is why it has a unique flair. Plenty of trending artists gather on the line-up, which is why people all over the globe come to attend it.

Ultra Europe Split

Ultra Europe Split is an EDM, Electronic, and House festival organized yearly in Croatia. It is the leading European dance music festival organized in several stadiums, clubs, and beaches on the Croatian coast. Of course, the main event is organized inside Split's Mladezi Park, and it is accompanied by smoke cannons and firework displays. During the past years, important international artists attended the event, including Swedish House Mafia, David Guetta, and the Chainsmokers.
