Defected Croatia has announced the stage takeovers for its upcoming seventh edition, which will take place from the 3rd-8th August at The Garden in Tisno.

Kicking off the weekend, beloved nightlife brand Glitterbox and dance collective Waack in Paris will present GlitterWhack, a first-of-its-kind showcase at The Garden’s Beach Stage. The live dancefloor competition will be hosted by dancer, creative and DJ Kiddy Smile, and feature 30+ participants from across the globe.

On Sunday, Kiwi Rekords will be taking over Defected Croatia, with label head Conducta joined by Todd Edwards, Bklava, Sammy Virji, and The Duke for an evening of garage. Dutch house mainstays, PIV Records, will also be returning for a second year following the success of their 2022 Olive Grove takeover, with sets from Archie Hamilton, Mike Dunn, Prunk, Dennis Quin, Grant Nelson, Kellie Allen, M-High, and Paige Tomlinson.

Rounding off the party, Ed Banger will make its Defected Croatia debut with Erol Alkan, Myd, BreakBot & Irfane, Louise Chen, and Yasmin, celebrating two decades of the seminal French house imprint.

Elsewhere, the festival’s line-up will feature major debuts from artists including recent DJ Mag cover stars DJ Bone (as Doc Ciroc), Jayda G, and TSHA, alongside appearances from Chaos in the CBD, Mr Scruff, HoneyLuv, Chloe Caillet, Krystal Klear, Oden & Fatzo, and SG Lewis.
