Electric Elephant is held in a magical wooded peninsula nestled in the ancient coastal village of Petrcane, Croatia, in easy reach of Zadar airport. Situated on the sun-sparkled sea of the Adriatic, Petrcane boasts family-run restaurants, villas by the beach and independently owned small hotels and campsites.
This years festival is longer, better and earlier! Much more than just a festival, its a holiday adventure, an escape, a musical getaway, a meeting of like-minded souls that invokes the original spirit of the unspoilt Ibiza of the 70s and early 80s. Live love dance.
