Hot Tickets: Don’t Miss Out On This Summer-Long DH Programme at [PLACES] Hotels in Croatia

If you love combining partying with breath-taking scenery, don’t miss out on this summer-long electronic dance music schedule with top name artists taking place on Croatia’s stunning coastline

If you love combining partying with breath-taking scenery, don’t miss out on this summer-long electronic dance music schedule taking place at two of Croatia’s hottest locations. Hosted at Valamar’s new [PLACES] hotels, book your flight to enjoy a full takeover by global EDM label Spinnin’ Records and live DJ sets courtesy of artists such as Ofenbach, Cat Dealers and UK’s Pink Panda throughout June, July and August. 

The Dalmatian Coast already boasts a party reputation to rival more well-worn nightspots, and this new electronic dance music programme will bolster its status as the place of choice for modern fun- and sunseekers.

Combining beautiful settings, catchy beats and sultry summer evenings, the Sounds of [PLACES] line-up is exclusive to guests at Valamar’s Hvar [PLACESHOTEL] and Dalmacija [PLACESHOTEL] in Makarska, providing the perfect backdrop for laidback vibes and ocean entertainment this summer.

Kicking off on June 10th and finishing on Saturday August 27th, the DJ roster includes special Spinnin’ Sessions at both hotel locations, with some of the top names in electronic music.

Curated by world-famous label Spinnin’ Records, Places poolside parties will feature appearances by Pink Panda, the UK DJ collective which has scored a string of official remixes for the likes of Dua Lipa, Bruno Mars, David Guetta, Sia, P!nk, Ava Max and Meduza.

Brazilian duo Cat Dealers, regularly named in the top 100 of the world’s biggest DJs by DJ Mag, will also be spinning the tunes, alongside Parisien duo Ofenbach, who have racked up more than 1 billion streams and 350 million views on YouTube. Completing the Spinnin’ Sessions line up are Dutch DJ Kim Kaey, Chico Rose, and Norwegian artist, DJ and producer Tungevaag.

Other than Spinnin’ Sessions, the full Sounds of Places programme will be themed around three additional DJ programmes: SALTY STAGE – showcasing up and coming DJ stars from all over Europe, SEA LA VIE – putting the spotlight on Croatian DJs, while SUN SET will feature inspirational and uplifting sounds from resident DJs.

The entire Sounds of Places programme offers EDM beats daily from 3.30pm – 11pm throughout the summer, and in order to attend all you need to do is book your stay in one of the two Places by Valamar Dalmatian properties. 

With its stunning coastline and islands, clean sea and unspoilt nature, Croatia’s wild landscapes and seascapes make unforgettable backdrops for every agenda, from sailing, culture, cycling, hiking to gourmet-grazing and partying.

And Valamar’s new [PLACES] hotels are uniquely positioned to give dynamic travellers the local knowledge they need for an authentic experience, in a vibrant setting where the principles of eco-sustainability are respected.
