The Garden Festival
Wondering where to go for your 2014 summer vacation? If you like daily dips in a crystal clear waters, eating fresh seafood, relaxing on beaches, taking boat rides with friends, discovering a beautiful seaside village---all while experiencing one of the best overseas music festivals, look no further than the Garden Festival in Tisno, Croatia.The Garden Festival, the founding festival of the emerging festival scene in Croatia, is in its 9th year, and is intimately capped at less than 3,000 attendees. It is located on a private holiday beach resort, a short walk from the intimate village of Tisno, along the coast of the Adriatic Sea. The week-long festival consists of three outdoor waterfront stages, 18 boat parties hosted by different labels/collectives on two boats, and a nearby under-the-stars afterhours club that can be reached by land or sea. Nitevibe was at the festival in July 2013 along with San Francisco's Sunset Sound System, which had a boat party featuring Justin Martin, Eats Everything, Galen, and Solar, and a solid crew of 25+ Bay Area music lovers. Check out the photo gallery by Robin Russell. The festival line-up consisted mostly of house, disco, funk, deep groove, and Balearic sounds, which fit perfectly with the relaxed, chill and spacious setting. The were more than 120 DJs and live acts, but nothing ever felt rushed or crowded and the music was rock solid all week long. Artists for 2014 include Metro Area, Crazy P, Maxxi Soundsystem, Floating Points, Tim Sweeney, Greg Wilson, Anthony Mansfield and Wolf + Lamb. Date: July 2 − 9, Place: Tisno, Croatia (Adriatic Coast), Cover: Buy Tickets Here, link More Info (RR)

Event: Housepitality
Venue: F8
DJs: Sven Weisemann, ZOZ, DJ Soul
Music: house
Cover: $5 b4 11pm, $10 after


Hailing from from Berlin, Zven Weisemann is a self-taught musician who plays piano, acoustic guitar and percussion, Weisemann also composes jazz and soundtracks - traditions which also inform his house records. Weisemann has been DJing since 1997. His musical influences ranges from classic, soundtracks, soul and jazz, deep house and dub to his beloved Detroit techno and US house. As a producer, his music draws deeply on the legacy of Chicago and Detroit, yet somehow manages to end up sounding as fresh as a daisy - records such as 'Vibe' and 'Slices' are house music that is half atmosphere and half beats, and not afraid to take its sweet time to lull the floor with their charms.
