For some, a summertime turn on the water equals grimly steering a pedalo around the local duck pond whilst a child you’re distantly related to hurls stale bread into the murky depths. For Hideout Festival goers, however? It means 16 boat parties across the 4-day festival, hosted by acts such as Hannah Wants, Feel My Bicep and Edible.
Hideout Festival – staged on Zrce Beach, Pag, Croatia – already boasts a land-based line-up featuring Skepta, Jamie xx and The Martinez Brothers amongst more. The cult-status boat parties, meanwhile, will run every day of the festival; further acts taking to the seas include Do Not Sleep, Metropolis, Monki and Eton Messy.
Tickets for the boat parties, presented by Smirnoff, are now available at hideoutfestival.com. Alternatively, spend your summer emptying your wallet on replacement icecreams for a sobbing child who dropped his 99 atop an angry swan. Your choice.
