SWITZERLAND HAS FRAUENFELD FESTIVAL, CZECH REPUBLIC HAS HIP-HOP KEMP AND NOW CROATIA BRINGS YOU FRESH ISLAND FESTIVAL.
Pioneers and masters of the Hip-Hop and RnB scene in South East Eurpoe have teamed up to form the A4 Organisation.
A4 includes international promoter and Hip-Hop ambassador DJ Phat Phillie, legendary DJ & MC Bizzo Bodega, event manager Damir Stupnisek – Stupni and RnB promoter Adnan Mehmedovic – Medo.
A4’S first mission together is to launch the ground-breaking FRESH ISLAND festival; the first Hip Hop event of its kind in Croatia.
With over 1000 successful events throughout Europe already under their collective belts and with the skills to promote and book kick-ass line ups fusing together local and internationally renowned artists such as Busta Rhymes, 50 Cent, Redman & Method Man, Montell Jordan, The Brand New Heavies, DJ Premier, Jazzy Jeff, Blackstreet, Pete Rock, Onyx, Ghostface Killah, MOP and many others – A4 decided it was now time to do something MASSIVE.
A4 were Inspired by the success of Frauenfeld Festival in Switzerland (which started way back in 1985, and today gathers over 100 performers on 10 different stages with over 80.000 visitors each year) and by Czech Republic festival Hip-Hop Kemp but wanted to give FRESH ISLAND a more unique vibe because the whole shebang takes place on the gorgeous Adriatic coast.
At FRESH ISLAND this summer the fans will be able to enjoy performances from a sick crew of artists whilst soaking up the rays on a sandy beach by a clear blue sea before watching the sun dip over the mountains.
So kick off your summer hip hop adventure between the 5th-8th of July, and head to the Croatian party beach of Zrce (the beach that never sleeps) where the weekend line up will be split between super clubs Papaya and Aquarius and include some of the best regional and international r’n’b and hip hop acts around – on 3 turbo charged stages!
Countdown to this unique Festival will kick off with a FRESH ISLAND European promo tour, which included a ”FRESH ISLAND Stage” within the Exit organised ”BIG SNOW” on Mount Kopaonik (Serbia) last week with performances from Ms. Dynamite, DJ Phat Phillie, DJ Bizzo Bodega and some secret guests!
”Die Hard Fan” and ”Early Bird” tickets for FRESH ISLAND are already on sale – Look out for promo parties where the coolest cats will be also able to win their tickets then and there!
