The first phase line-up comprises a cast of established and up-and-coming house talent, including Basement Jaxx (DJ Set), Dennis Ferrer, Julio Bashmore, Kenny Dope, Roger Sanchez, Guti (Live), Nick Curly, Osunlade, Noir, Riva Starr, Sandy Rivera, Tube & Berger, Sonny Fodera, Sam Divine, Franky Rizardo, &Me, Adam Port, David Mayer, Purple Disco Machine, John Morales, ANOTR, Dario D’Attis, Eli Escobar, Fred Everything, Worthy, Luke Solomon and Simon Dunmore.


Amongst the full festival programme, Defected In The House, Strictly Rhythm, Glitterbox, Classic and DFTD will host a range of different stages and events throughout the festival, with house artists, underground DJ talent and the production that has been a staple of Defected parties over the years.


The Garden Resort boasts a range of venues. The Main Stage will showcase headline artists from around the globe and is set in a tree-lined area of parkland just a short stroll away from the shores of the Adriatic. With waves lapping right up to the dancefloor and stunning views out to the islands, the Beach Stage provides an experience for DJs and festival-goers alike.


The outdoor nightclub Barbarella’s Discotheque gives revellers the chance to experience what is today an almost unique opportunity: to dance under the stars until sunrise. Finally, twice-daily boat parties will be hosted aboard the good ship, Argonaught, an old wooden vessel that will play host to parties afloat.


Further acts and the programme for each of the stages and boat parties will be announced in the coming weeks.
