WHAT ARE THE OPENING TIMES?
You can collect your festival wristband from 11AM on Thursday 11th. If you are camping you can collect your camping wristband from Wednesday onwards, however you will also have to collect your festival wristband separately at 11AM Thursday.
There is no access to the site after Wednesday 17th July.
WHAT IS THE NEAREST AIRPORT?
The nearest airports to the village of Tisno are Zadar (45 mins), Split (90 mins) or Zagreb (4 hrs). Journey times are approximate and are for the highway route. It will typically take a little longer by bus or coach and/or during heavy traffic.
We have official airport transfers to and from Split and Zadar airports, the only transfer that will get you all the way to the festival site.
WHAT IS THE CURRENCY IN CROATIA?
The Croatian currency is the Kuna (kn / HRK). As a rough guide 1 GBP = 8 kn; 1 EUR = 7 kn. Keep an eye on the latest exchange rates.
WHERE IS THE NEAREST ATM?
There is an ATM on-site at The Garden. There are also a handful of ATMs and currency exchanges in the village of Tisno, a short walk from the festival site.
IS THERE A FIRST AID ON SITE?
Yes, there is first aid and a medical tent on-site. The tent is located between the volleyball court and Main Stage.
WHERE IS THE NEAREST HOSPITAL?
In the city of Šibenik town, about 15km away.
IF I'M NOT STAYING ON THE FESTIVAL SITE, WILL THERE BE TAXIS LATE AT NIGHT?
A licensed taxi rank can be found in the car park just inside the main festival entrance. Unlicensed taxis are common in the area so, for your own safety, please only take the licensed taxis from inside the festival. Make sure the driver uses the meter for the journey, which he/she must do by Croatian law.
Alternatively you can use boat taxis, which depart from the boat party pier. Please note that you will need a festival wristband to enter, so you will need to go to the main Box Office first.
IS THERE LOST PROPERTY?
Any lost property is usually held at the main campsite reception, open 24 hours.
WILL THERE BE PLACES TO STAY?
Hospitality On The Beach has partnered with our friends at Love Music Travel to provide packages in one easy bundle – festival tickets, accommodation and airport transfers. Please contact firstname.lastname@example.org for a quote.
There is a fantastic range of accommodation options within the festival site and in the local area. Check out the Where To Stay section for more info.
FOOD & DRINK
WHAT IS THERE TO EAT?
There is a restaurant on-site which is open from breakfast until late and serves an extensive menu. There are also various food stalls around the site, with plenty of vegan and vegetarian options as well as a number of bars. In Tisno there are loads of great places to eat.
CAN WE BRING OUR OWN FOOD AND DRINK ONTO THE SITE AND ON BOAT PARTIES?
You can’t bring your own food and drink. There are however loads of bars selling alcoholic drinks, soft drinks and water.
WHAT DOES THE FESTIVAL TICKET INCLUDE?
Festival tickets include five days of entry into the festival site (Thursday 11th July - Monday 15th July). Tickets will be on sale soon HERE. On-site accommodation is sold separately and run by The Garden Resort. See the Where To Stay section for more information.
I HAVEN'T RECEIVED A CONFIRMATION / E-TICKET, WHAT SHOULD I DO?
Please contact the ticket agent you purchased your ticket from. If you are having trouble getting hold of your ticket agent drop us an email on email@example.com and we will do our best to help.
HOW DO I COLLECT MY TICKETS?
You will need to print off your booking confirmation and bring it to the box office at the festival along with your photo ID. If you are staying on-site, you will also be able to check into your accommodation and collect your wristband at the main campsite reception.
I'M UNDER 18, CAN I COME TO HOSPITALITY ON THE BEACH?
No, Hospitality On The Beach is 18+ only. A valid form of ID will be required for entry.
I DON'T HAVE A TICKET, CAN I STILL COME TO A BOAT PARTY?
To get on a Boat party you must have a valid day or weekend festival ticket. And no, getting a boat taxi to the site from Tisno and trying to sneak on at the jetty won't work... ;)
Boat party tickets are sold separately and announcements are coming in the spring.
HOW CAN I GET FROM THE AIRPORT TO THE FESTIVAL SITE IN TISNO?
We recommend that you book an official Hospitality On The Beach transfer. We arrange transfers from Split and Zadar. Full schedule and tickets will be available soon.
Another option is to make your own way to fit in with your travel plans. There are buses from all airports to the main centre bus terminals, and from most cities you will find regular buses to Zadar or Sibenik. Once at the main bus terminals in Zadar / Sibenik you can catch a local bus to Tisno. Vollo is a great website for cheap bus ticket comparison across Croatia and to/from the surrounding countries.
For those of you with the luxury of more time for an adventure, other airport options in Croatia are Zagreb or Dubrovnik. Again, check out Vollo for cheap bus ticket comparison across Croatia.
CAN I HIRE A CAR?
Yes, so long as you are over 21 years old and have held a licence for minimum of 1 year. We've previously got ourselves good deals on these sites for car rental in Croatia: Argus Car Hire, Holiday Autos or Uni Rent.
WHAT ARE THE TRAINS AND BUSES LIKE IN CROATIA?
Unfortunately the train services aren’t great if you want to get anywhere fast. Buses are quicker, cheaper and connect all the cities with a regular service. Tickets can be bought on board the buses or at the main stations. Longer journeys have service stops which are included in the travel time. Check out Vollo for cheap bus comparison across Croatia.
CAN I VOLUNTEER AT THE FESTIVAL?
We have a limited number of volunteering positions available. Volunteers usually get festival entry, some food and drinks in exchange for a few shifts. Applications for 2019 volunteers will open early 2019.
