Outlook Festival - Europe's award-winning showcase of music inspired by soundsystem culture, confirms new names for 2013 including hip-hop legend Mos Def, reggae icon Anthony B and Warp Record's finest Rustie. They will be joining a host of previously announced talent including some of the world's best live acts and DJs across Dub, Hip-Hop, Drum 'n' Bass, Dubstep and beyond. In what will be one of the most rounded Hip-Hop line-ups to have ever been pieced together, innovator Mos Def will be joining previously announced icons Talib Kweli and The Pharcyde alongside respected lyricist Jay Electronica and prolific newbie Joey Bada$$.
Taking place in Croatia in the beautiful scenery of a 19th century fort, Outlook Festival's setting is utterly unparalleled and revellers can party either on land or at sea, surrounded by unspoilt coastlines, glorious sunshine and the crystal blue waters of the Adriatic Sea. Eclectic without losing sight of its identity, Outlook Festival boasts live acts and DJ sets which span ages, generations, styles and decades in a multitude of interesting and unique venues including an abandoned fort, a dungeon, a courtyard, a moat and a harbour.
Having grown from humble beginnings, Outlook festival has become a highly anticipated event on the musical calendar, a three day rite of passage for music fans and supporters of soundsystem culture, taking place in a festival site like no other. Fort Punta Christo is a 19th century fort originally built by the Austrians to defend what was their main naval port. With its courtyard, moat, ballroom and dungeon it feels like a re-discovered forgotten world that is transformed into mystical venues for the duration of the festival. The city of Pula, where the festival takes place in the stunning region of Istria in Croatia, is steeped in history and home to many ancient Roman buildings, including the magnificent amphitheatre, offering festival goers beautiful and unspoiled natural surroundings with glorious sunshine to enjoy in addition to the festivals vibe and music.
As well as the on-site readymade campsite that Outlook has to offer, festival goers are able to stay in one of the reasonably priced hotels and apartments in the city of Pula and surrounding villages. Additionally, low-cost flights regularly travel to and from Pula or nearby city Trieste with taxis and buses providing easy travel to and from the festival campsite. With beach parties and boat parties conveniently located a stone's throw from the campsite and main festival site, revellers can party from dusk till dawn, on land or at sea, without having to negotiate long distances or incur any further travel costs.
Outlook Festival will be making more announcements throughout 2013, with details of boat parties still to be publicised.
