After the 18th EXIT Festival, visited by 200,000 visitors from over 70 countries in four days, the exciting festival adventure continues at the fifth edition of the Sea Dance Festival, from Thursday, August 30th to Saturday, September 1st, at the most beautiful beach of the Budva Riviera. Here is a handful of reasons why Sea Dance should be on your list of destinations this summer!
New festival location
This year, Sea Dance Festival will be held on Buljarica beach for the first time, located at half an hour drive from Budva’s Old Town and just a few kilometres away from Petrovac, Sutomore and Čanj, as well as Bečići and Šušanj. The sand-and-gravel beach is 2 km long, hugged by a belt of pine and deciduous trees and a three hundred years old olive grove, making Buljarica the perfect green oasis and destination for long summer festival nights, followed by exciting daily parties with your best friends, cocktails and the sound of the waves!
Camping in the Old Olive Grove
Maslina (Olive) Camp is well known amongst tourists and it will host festival-goers from the whole world at the very end of the tourist season! Tucked away among the 300-year-old olives and various trees providing an awesome atmosphere for relaxation, there is a parking lot, toilets, showers, electricity and Wi-Fi. You will be able to rent small as well as luxurious tents and camping equipment. Located a few hundred meters from the sea and close to the festival location, it is the perfect accommodation for the duration of the festival, and for those who do not fancy sleeping under the open skies, EXIT festival’s official tourist agency, EXIT Trip, will soon have suites on offer.
