Sea Star Festival 2024 Croatia first acts news

Sea Star Festival in Umag has unveiled an electrifying lineup for the powerful start of its sixth edition, perfectly launching the festival season!

The main stage on the first day will be headlined by the world’s most in-demand electronic duo, ARTBAT, leading new-generation artist INIKO, famed British producer and DJ HOT SINCE 82, techno star DEBORAH DE LUCA and regional heroes – bands JOKER OUT and BUČ KESIDI! Fans are flocking to the Stella Maris lagoon in Umag from May 23rd to 26th 2024, with attendees hailing from over 22 countries so far, including Italy, Germany, Austria, Switzerland, the Netherlands, Belgium and the UK.

ARTBAT, the world’s most in-demand electronic duo, are set to shine next year in Umag’s Stella Maris lagoon! Their meteoric rise is marked by a rapid transition from debut release to performing at Ibiza’s Destino club within just a year. They have wowed the public with hits like “Mandrake,“ and the evolution of their sound continued with “Uplift“ and “Tabu.“ Known for their powerful and melodic house and techno style, they’ve earned numerous titles, notably the Breakthrough Artist of The Year from Ibiza DJ Awards in 2019. Just two years ago, they had the honour of closing EXIT festival, a privilege previously held by legends like Carl Cox and Solomun.

In Umag’s lagoon, leading new-generation act INIKO will rock the crowd with one of 2023’s biggest hits, “Jericho.“ Their other-worldly vocals, impeccable production, and cosmic music videos have garnered a growing global fanbase. Especially beloved on social media, they boast over 4 million followers on TikTok and more than 2 million on Instagram.

British DJ and producer HOT SINCE 82 has long been one of the most sought-after producers in our region, with sold-out performances worldwide. He started his music career at 17 and quickly gained recognition from major media outlets like BBC Radio 1 and Mixmag. His debut LP, “Little Black Book,“ was released in 2013, and he gained fame with remixes for artists like Rudimental, Shadow Child, and Green Velvet. His incredible mixing skills have taken him to stages at numerous global festivals, including a residency in Ibiza and performances at Coachella.

Sea Star’s main stage will also shine bright with the beloved Italian DJ DEBORAH DE LUCA. Known for her electrifying energy and sets that intriguingly fuse popular hits with hard techno beats, this Naples artist is a crowd favorite.

Regional favorites and rising global sensation JOKER OUT are set to conquer Europe in the coming year, and Sea Star audience will have the chance to be part of this spectacle. The Slovenian sensation have announced their first major tour titled “See You Soon,” covering 31 cities across 21 European countries.

BUČ KESIDI is another leading regional act set to conquer the main stage at Sea Star, following triumphant concerts as part of their “Skupi snagu” tour, which culminated in shows at Belgrade’s Tašmajdan and Zagreb’s Šalata, along with a seven-day residency in Zagreb.

The festival’s sixth edition will be held from May 23rd to 26th 2024, across various familiar and new stages in the Stella Maris lagoon in Umag.  If you need a place to stay during Sea Star Festival then check out our interactive accommodation map below!
