Sun, Sea and Soundsystems Fort Punta Christo, Pula, Croatia 2-5th September 2010 Europe’s Largest Dubstep & Soundsystem Culture Festival Returns To Croatia Outlook, the largest dubstep and soundsystem culture festival in Europe, returns to Croatia this Summer bringing with them the biggest names from the most vibrant and cutting edge dance scenes around today. With an all-star lineup from the worlds of Dub and Dubstep, Reggae, Dancehall, Drum and Bass, Hiphop, Roots Soul and Future Beats, Outlook brings together likes of Roots Manuva, The Bug, Digital Mystikz, Benji B, Macka B, Congo Natty and Radio 1’s Mary Anne Hobbs in one huge celebration of heavy weight bass music. Launched in 2008 to sold out critical acclaim in the rustic fishing village of Petrcane, Outlook has continued to grow and evolve. In 2009 the festival moved to a beach-front Superclub in Novalja on the Island of Pag and this year the promoters have secured quite possibly the most amazing festival location ever imagined. An abandoned fort built in the eighteen hundreds, Punta Christo looks like a discovery from a lost world. Located just across the bay from the town of Pula, Punta Christo is the perfect destination for sun soaked daytime beach parties, boat parties and when the sun sets all night raving at one of the fort’s four stages. One of the most eagerly excited festivals of the Summer, Outlook transports the most exciting music scenes from urban Britain to a beachside paradise, ensuring one of the most amazing festival experiences of 2010. Said Simon Scott, Outlook Festival, “Having sold out just through word of mouth the past two years, we needed to find a new home that could accommodate all the people who we know wanted to experience Outlook this year. When we found Punta Christo we knew we’d found the perfect venue for Outlook, somewhere as special as the festival itself. Said Noah Ball, Outlook Festival, “Looking at what we’ve put together this year it’s like a dream come true. We’ve got an amazing location, the best crowd you could ask for and the a lineup that represents the most exciting music coming out of the UK at the moment, what more could you ask for?” - end - Full Listing Details 2-5th September 2010 The Outlook Festival 2010 Fort Punta Christo, Pula, Croatia Outlook, the largest dubstep and soundsystem culture festival in Europe, returns to Croatia this Summer bringing with them the biggest names from the most vibrant and cutting edge dance scenes around today.
