Defected have revealed the first names on the line up for a landmark festival in Croatia.

Basement Jaxx, Dennis Ferrer, Kenny Dope, Roger Sanchez, Riva Starr and Sandy Rivera are just some of the artists announced so far.

Defected Croatia 2016 takes place at The Garden Resort in Tisno on Croatia’s beautiful Adriatic coast from 11-15 August.

The main stage will showcase headline artists from around the world and is set in a tree-lined area of parkland near the shores of the Adriatic.

The Beach Stage has waves lapping right up to the dance floor and stunning views out to the islands.

The outdoor nightclub Barbarell’s Discotheque offers the opportunity to dance under the stars until sunrise.

There will also be twice-daily boat parties aboard a wooden ship called the Argonaught.

Further acts will be announced over the coming weeks.
