The Best Festivals on Zrće Beach for 2021

Croatia's Zrće Beach has rapidly become one of the summer party capitals of Europe, drawing in music fans from across the world to its crystal clear Adriatic waters. 

Divided across its four impressive clubs, Papaya, Noa, Kalypso and Aquarius, Zrće Beach sees a multitude of musical offerings catering to all party heads - from house and hardstyle through to trance and techno.

And with Croatia and Zrće beach now looking to begin opening up again following the COVID-19 pandemic, we pick out some of the best festivals to mark the reopening of this ultimate party hotspot.
