Hideout Festival has established itself as one of the true landmark festivals of the European summer, with 2018 promising to be even bigger and bolder.

 

Bringing some of the biggest names in electronic music together across five packed festival days, Hideout has consistently proven itself unrivalled across the electronic music landscape.  With over 20,000 like-minded people joining together under the sun in open air venues till 6am, and a wealth of activities all included within one ticket – Hideout is the only place to be this summer.

 

Along the idyllic Zrce Beach, Hideout takes the party far and wide with headline shows taking place on land and on sea. The imitable atmosphere of Hideout’s Boat Parties combine crystal clear waters and stunning views with an intimate party alongside 250 others and some of the most popular artists on the planet. After its incredibly successful launch at Hideout 2017, the mind-blowing Hideout Beach Party returns to its stunning yet secluded secret beachside. Last year saw legendary house duo Basement Jaxx perform an unmissable set nestled between mountains and sea-range, and for 2018, Hideout promises to take things one step further.

 

 

Across the week five unbelievable open-air venues host Hideout’s incredible programme, with heavy-hitting sets from day rolling right through to the early hours of the morning. Whether diving into a pool party at Papaya, exploring elrow’s spectacular show at Kalypso, soaking up jaw-dropping sunrise views from Aquarius, catching Noa’s incredible lighting production or losing yourself to the intimacy and beachside location of Euphoria, Hideout is bound to stake claim to some of the biggest nights of your life. Especially when the likes of Major Lazer, Stormzy and Jamie Jones are in control of the party’s soundtrack.

 

After seven consecutive sold-out years, a limited number of Hideout 2018 tickets are on sale now at special earlybird prices starting from £139 (plus booking fee), and available to secure with a £50 deposit scheme – saving over 20% compared to final ticket prices. These can be purchased as the full Hideout package, with Accommodation, Flights, Transfers and extras all available to buy together with your Hideout ticket.

 

After witnessing the likes of Stormzy, Major Lazer, Marco Carola, Diplo, Jamie Jones, MK, Hannah Wants, Patrick Topping, Eats Everything, Bicep, Solardo, Alan Fitzpatrick, AJ Tracey and many more take to the stage last year – expect Hideout 2018 to serve up another batch of heavyweight performances with further details on next year’s lineup set to be revealed later in the year.
