Beats, Beer and Boogaloo – funk, soul and craft beer

The Garden and The Craig Charles Funk and Soul Club are very proud to reveal Croatia’s brand new festival for 2017 – Beats, Beer and Boogaloo – from Thursday 13th to Monday 17th July.

Taking place in one of the region’s most beautiful locations – the coastal idyll of The Garden Resort in Tisno nestled along the stunning Adriatic coastline – the festival is a unique fusion of craft beers from around the world and a lineup of amazing funked-up live music and DJs curated by Craig himself. First wave of lineup to be announced soon!

Featuring boat parties, club nights at the legendary Barbarella’s, street food, tutored drinks tasting and much more.

We’re setting out to offer something truly different for not just Croatia but the entire region. After the 10th anniversary of The Garden Festival in 2015 – The Garden Brewery in Zagreb was launched, which now produces 17 different beers shipping to 25 EU countries and was named the best new brewery in Croatia for last year by RateBeer.com.

The combination of Craig wanting to do his own festival in the sun and The Garden missing the buzz of producing festival was too good for the guys to miss, and they set about planning Croatia’s newest festival for 2017. The collaboration feels like natural unity, bringing together The Garden guys’ many years of expertise, Craig’s encyclopedic knowledge of music and the thriving brewery.

The legendary actor, host and broadcaster is one of UK’s most beloved Funk and Soul DJs. Craig has now grounded himself as a Funk & Soul icon after 10 years of broadcasting on BBC 6 Music with their primetime Saturday night show… And adding a range of international beers from micro-breweries and producers to savour plus the sublime Croatian summer climate creates the inaugural Beats, Beer and Boogaloo.
