Man buys a whole Island to turn it into an Exotic Music Festival Location

Posted at December 29th, 2015 | by Sarangh | in Grapevine

Music festivals have become a tradition and culture around the globe off late and it becomes customary for the promoters and curators to bring together the best line-up along with an exquisite location to make the festival a one that’ll remain with the vast community of electronic dance music fans for a long time. One step towards this venture is what Sound Channel has got itself into.

Sound Channel, the creators of Unknown music festival which transpires in Croatia, have officially announced their future plans and it sure seems that Sound Channel is all geared to take their festival scene to the next level starting summer 2016. The promoters have purchased a quiet island in the Croatian territories named Obonjon and they have planned to turn this island into the home of their music festival along with other artistic cultural events as well. Well, this sure is a convincing enough reason for not organising Unknown in 2015, now that they have a complete island to host it!

Here’s what Sound Channel’s Dan Blackledge has got to say on this:

“Our vision for the island of Obonjan is to regenerate the island and turn it into a truly unique concept, combining art and music, wellness, sustainable living, amazing food and drink and fun and creative accommodation, all on an idyllic island paradise”.

Having set up quite a name for itself in the electronic music circuit, Unknown music festival is eyeing to book Kygo for its 2016 edition. Kygo on a tropical island? Wow! That is all an electronic dance music lover could ask for. With Unknown having already witnessed some electrifying acts by Disclosure and many other in their previous editions, Unknown 2016 is undoubtedly something to look forward to in 2016.
