Unknown Croatia has unveiled another huge wave of acts to join its already burgeoning line-up, including the first ever Croatian performance from the legendary Chic Ft. Nile Rodgers and further live shows by Clean Bandit, breakthrough trio London Grammar and pioneering Berlin outfit Moderat. Brit nominees Disclosure also head to Unknown this summer for a unmissable DJ set along with the likes of Jamie XX, DJ Koze, Eats Everything, Richy Ahmed, Prins Thomas and Fainting By Numbers. Having already confirmed over 50 artists including Chvrches, Wild Beasts, Mount Kimbie, DJ Harvey, George Fitzgerald, TEED and John Talabot, Unknown Croatia 2014 will be the highlight of the summer.
Rising above the competition, Unknown offers the most eclectic programme of live and electronic acts in Croatia. Talent from across the musical spectrum will perform unforgettable shows across the festival's intimate forest and waterside stages including London Grammar, Clean Bandit, Disclosure, Chvrches, Wild Beasts, TEED, Erol Alkan and Moderat. Unknown's idyllic beach stage will also provide the perfect scene for the incredible and timeless sounds of Chic Ft. Nile Rogers, who make their Croatian live debut.
Brand new to 2014, Unknown will be returning with a series of island parties hosted by the likes of Young Turks and Numbers. Taking place on secluded private islands and accessible only via a short boat ride, these amazing additions will offer revellers the chance to party with their favourite artists, in a truly unique setting. Elsewhere there'll be exciting new collaborations with top club promoters Bugged Out, Secretsundaze, Zutekh and Drop The Mustard, not to mention boat parties hosted by Resident Advisor and Hot Chip. Also new for 2014, Unknown will be opening the main stage for an entire extra day, allowing for even more surprises set to surpass the success of last year's sell out debut.
Set in the paradise location of Rovinj on Croatia's sun soaked coast, nestled between luscious forest and crystal clear waters, Unknown is a festival like no other. Some of the world's leading musicians, artists and designers, will create the ultimate experience as revellers embark on a week of live performances, boat & pool parties, art installations, forest escapes and mystical adventures.
Tailoring the perfect Unknown experience couldn't be easier, with accommodation and transfers now available through the Unknown website and around 25ª-30 flights a day leaving the UK for nearby airports. An array of on-site accommodation options are on offer, ranging from standard and boutique camping, to forest lodges overlooking the sea, to two, three and four-star hotel rooms and apartments just moments from Rovinj's stunning Blue Flag beach. Off-site private villas and apartments can also be booked through the website.
Created by the minds behind Hideout Festival, Sound Channel and The Warehouse Project, Unknown will be the ultimate setting to celebrate the last days of summer.

Who needs a lover anyway?
These albums are not nearly as appreciated as they should be.
Listen to her new song 'Callous Copper'.
They might sound like they're from the 70s, but they way they roll is very 2020.
What's new in the music world this week?
'U Kin B the Sun' is an album rich in texture and depth and one that quite obviously, and unapologetically, plays to Frazey Ford's strengths.
Listen to their new single 'Small Change'.
