Vom 2. bis zum 11. Juli 2010 findet in Kroatien wieder das Das Garden Festival statt.
Ein kleines, aber langes Festival mit viel Musik, auf dem man wunderbar relaxen und dabei auch noch Urlaub erleben kann. Eine schöne Landschaft rund um das Fischerdorf Petrčane.
Sonnen am Strand, tanzen auf dem Festivalgelände, rund 2.000 Besucher genießen das in diesem Jahr zum fünftenmal.
Wir veröffentlichen hier die Original (engl.) Pressemitteilung zum Garden Festival 2010 in Zadar , Kroatien:
There are just two months left until The Garden Festival begins. Time is very much flying as summer looms large, and this year’s Double Whammy of weekends are all set to start another mesmerising festival season on the sun-kissed Garden Petrcane site.
Nestled on a narrow pine-shaded peninsular jutting into azure Adriatic waters, the festival site is truly breathtaking as is the entire area, complete with hidden coves, distant mountain ranges, long walks and an abundance of fresh sea air. Intimate cafes and restaurants line Petrcane’s promenade which follows the gently curved bay and the pace of life slows considerably during the days, yet you are never too far from the action either. As the sun goes down the site is transformed with entrancing sunset sets, late night live shows and all night long partying for those in the mood.
So picture the outdoor Amphitheatre cast in dappled shadow from the wizened trees surrounding it. Imagine The Tiki Bar and people dancing on the decking, on the beach or frolicking in the water. Witness the late evening Argonaughty boat chugging back into dock, packed with happy revellers and as a live act – let’s say 2020 Soundsystem – rips it up on the open air main stage, someone discreetly unlocks the doors to Barbarellas Discotheque and an all night long session awaits with Horse Meat Disco…
Wizz Air Announce New Route to Croatia
East European airline Wizz Air have just announced 4 daily flights per week from London Luton to Split, opening up more ways of getting over to the country. Split is a 2 hour bus ride to the festival and many people opt to take this route. The Garden also provides transfers so please check the website and make sure your place is secured.
Final Leg of The Garden Get Together Tour – Sat 22nd May
This gig takes place in sunny Brighton and features Danny Berman aka Red Rack’em, who is well known for his naughty pirate soul remixes and disco edits which have been supported by the likes of the Unabombers, Todd Terje, Swag, Yam Who, Prins Thomas as well as institutions such as Fat City and Piccadilly Records. As a DJ he is known for his club rocking, genre busting eclectic sets and this diversity is reflected in his broad output as a producer. Danny’s work is respected by heroes such as Carl Craig, the Idjut Boys, the Rush Hour crew and Domu. He’s playing at the Funky Buddha Lounge and also at The Garden Festival in July!

Even more new line up announcements including The Phenomenal HandClap Band, Sir Norman Jay and more!
2010’s lineup is almost complete with several exciting additions gracing what is already the biggest showing yet across both weekends.
Breakestra is a ten-piece funk “orchestra” from Los Angeles, California, formed by Miles Tackett in 1996. Miles Tackett, also known as “Musicman” aka Breakestra, plays bass, guitar, keyboards and drums. He also sings along with Mix Master Wolf. The style in which the band plays is much influenced by late 60’s and early 70’s soul and funk music, and as The Live Mix, Part 1 and The Live Mix, Part 2 show.
The phenomenal Phenomenal Hand Clap band (see what we did there?) offer multitudinous influences blending funk, soul, reggae, dance, hip-hop and Brazilian beat, as well as rock, disco and electro, encapsulating the spirit of the Brooklyn underground and are a stunning live addition to the Garden. Wolf & Lamb’s Gadi Mizrahi also brings an inspired live set to the festival. As a producer, his deviously playful style of house has proved as infectious abroad as it is at home, earning him international praise and gigs at clubs like Fabric, Watergate and Club der Visionaire. With such prolific work as an artist and label-head, Gadi Mizrahi is currently one of electronic music’s most influential trendsetters.
The legendary Terry Callier – long standing friend of Curtis Mayfield – brings his American Jazz, folk and soul to the Garden. Expect to be entranced when he plays the main stage – simply not to be missed! Young soul sensation Mayer Hawthorne also stars. The American sensation has brought a sublime take on soul with his debut album, A Strange Arrangement, drawing from influences including Curtis Mayfield, Isaac Hayes, Leroy Hutson, Mike Terry, Barry White and Smokey Robinson and has been hailed as a leader of the soul scene.
Festival fave Sir Norman Jay also returns this summer. Always bringing something special to where ever he plays, Norman encapsulates the very best in house, funk, soul and a few classics thrown in for good measure!
The Garden is further bolstered with the return of Mancunian genre-buff Mr Scruff and sonic scientist Qool DJ Marv. Splicing R&B, Hip-Hop, Reggae, Latin, House, Jazz, Funk, Rock and Soul classics effortlessly together heralds one of the most exciting aural pioneers ever to have played at the Garden. On the live side, Killer Whale (The Arthur Russell Project) project makes its debut too – reinterpreting Russell’s incredibly rich deep disco sounds into dance floor abandon.
So with everything from NYC deep disco from Metro Area’s Darshan jousting with the electronica of Jamie Jones – one of the most talked about artists of 2009 for a string of revered releases and sets – through to Leeds’ finest deck devil, Dave Beer, and the brilliant live outfit 2020 Soundsystem, quite simply the Garden has it all – and more! One of Scotland’s finest, Garden debutant The Revenge, is set to unleash his fine disco cuts, and since his Resident Advisor podcast his stock has risen even further. Two of the north of the border’s other favourite sons, Subclub’s Harri and Domenic, also make their inaugural trips to Petrcane. London’s Horse Meat Disco debut too, themselves enjoying their most fruitful year yet, and two late night specialists also make their first appearances at The Garden, Sebo K and Seth Troxler, bring a tech-noir edge to nocturnal proceedings. Of course it’s not just all about the new boys – some already legendary Garden guests also return, including Greg Wilson, Henrik Schwarz, Kelvin Brown, Terry Farley, No’ Fakin and a great deal more also star.
