Croatia’s Hideout Festival has made headlines once again, selling out in record time! As of the 17th of November, all tickets were gone, with festival passes only on sale for mere 2 weeks! Not only were they the fastest selling festival in Croatia this year, but the level of demand for tickets is now only matched by the likes of Glastonbury and Tomorrowland. Taking place from the 28th of June to the 2nd of July, Hideout will be exhibiting some of the finest DJ talent in the business. The Adriatic Festival is hosting sets from both established legends such as Seth Troxler, Green Velvet, Steve Lawler, Jamie Jones, Loco Dice and DJ EZ, alongside dance music’s future Honcho’s such as Amine Edge & Dance, Route 94, Blonde, Doorly, Patrick Topping and Dusky. With this being Hideout’s fifth year on the island of Pag, Daily Beat thought it would be fitting to explore five great tracks that have helped to define five incredible years of Hideout Festival.
Julio Bashmore – Battle For Middle You
Julio Bashmore’s 2011 masterpiece sits well in the hearts of Hideout’s first ever festival party goers. Its smooth padded chords, alongside sharp oscillating stabs make this track a timeless classic, as useful as an addition to a DJ set today as it was on the island of Pag back at that first ever Hideout.
Hot Natured – Benediction
2012 saw the rise of House Music super group Hot Natured, with Benediction making the biggest impact at Hideout, alongside Shadow Child’s funky remix of Reverse Skydiving. This track just seeps good summer vibes, with its smooth disco influenced percussion and funky synth stabs, coupled alongside Ali Love’s incredible vocal work.
Disclosure – Latch
2013 was an incredibly important year for the Disclosure brothers, with their breakout hit Latch taking both the dance music world, and the UK charts by a storm. This anthem was played out across the whole of Hideouts third edition, to sing along responses from the crowd!
Gorgon City – Ready For Your Love
If 2013 was the year for Disclosure, 2014 was Gorgon City’s year, with their breakout track sending them to stardom across the dance music circuit. Another classic sing a long, summer tune!
Pleasure State – Ghost in The System
Choosing a track for this years Hideout proved tricky, however MK, Lee Foss, and Anabel Englund’s new outfit seemed pretty fitting. Great summer vocals, alongside bouncy, sharp bass lines, this one is sure to go off at this summers festival!
