FOR launched in 2013 on the island of Hvar in Croatia, as an alternative to the current crop of music festivals across the world. Structured as a music experience inside an island vacation, with a very limited amount of tickets available, no clashing performances, and a schedule that allows for activities such as boating, winery visits, and mornings spent on the beach, as well as a diverse and genre-pushing roster of performances.
Some of the 2014 artists include:
DARKSIDE – KLAXONS – MARK RONSON (DJ SET) – EROL ALKAN – FACTORY FLOOR – TENSNAKE – STORM QUEEN (DJ SET) – KELELA – MAURICE FULTON DANIEL WANG – PSYCHEMAGIK – TIGER & WOODSBOK BOK – FORT ROMEAU – MOVEMENT – GHOST CULTURE
Spanning multiple venues across the idyllic ancient island of Hvar, and incorporating a diverse, thoughtful line-up of genre-pushing artists, FOR (named for the island’s ancient moniker) is an intimate, non-traditional music event for the discerning experience-hunter.
Hvar is an ancient Croatian island in the Adriatic Sea, located off the Dalmatian Coast. The island is accessed via a short ferry or catamaran trip from the port town of Split. Hvar is well known for its spectacular beauty, glorious waters, yachting to the many surrounding islands, and incredibly fresh local cuisine.
