Croatia’s sleepy village of Petrcane is infamous for throwing some of the best, most intimate and most ecelctic festival line-ups across the summer, and is fast becoming the go-to place for a jolly good summer holiday (and here‘s a rather lovely summery round-up of 2010′s festivities to shake the chill away).
Soundwave is one of these parties, infamous for presenting the most in-demand leftfield artists of the moment. Back for its third year with the legendary Roots Manuva as the first confirmation; he will apparently be giving “one of his darkest and stormiest performances to date”. Fresh from supporting Gorillaz on their Plastic Beach tour, Swedish electro funksters Little Dragon will also be joining the summer celebrations.
Other artists confirmed so far for 2011′s Soundwave include the likes of Stuart McCallum (The Cinematic Orchestra) and legendary sound mixologists Hexstatic (performing their spectactular AV set), alongside sets from an eclectic band of musical connoisseurs such as Zero 7, Jamie XX, Channel one Sound System, Floating points, Belleruche, Yungun & Mr Thing amongst many others ready to rock the party.
