It’s got everything going for it, an absolutely unbelievable location, the local Croatian people we met were fantastic and the hospitality second to none. With a great smattering of ex-pat festival goers who seem to have decided to all meet here at the same time. I’ve met so many people here I know, instantly it makes me feel at home and welcome. There seems to be a growing trend for small perfectly formed gatherings of people. It’s the right time right place and this will definitely go on to bigger things.. The Garden Festival will definitely be a feature in my diary for the coming years!” Mr. Scruff: “It’s been lovely, I always come for a week, beautiful people, amazing surroundings, great weather, a killer sound-system, and the local people have been very welcoming... It’s perfect, being on a peninsula surrounded by the sea you really feel that you are on a festival site but you don’t feel enclosed. So if it is a bit full-on you can walk across to the village, lie on the beach, hire a boat or go for a swim... It’s perfect, all the good things about a festival, the inclusiveness and the feeling of belonging without feeling hemmed in...” festival tips Don’t lose the chance to attend one of the famous boat parties, the place you’ll have a lot of unforgettable moments that will keep you warm for the whole next year.

In the first two years our festival was a single-day event, but the feedback of the audience was extremely positive (people wanted more), so we extended the festival period to 8 days in 2005. That move proved to be very successful and what started as a one-night party began to transform into a mini - festival. People were entertained by various DJs while having fun in the pool. They were also very active in various art workshops and sport competitions. The campaigns “STOP THE VIOLENCE!” and “PROTECT THE NATURE” were conducted during
the festival. This summer the organizers have made efforts to provide even more interesting and more various types of programme for the visitors. There is around 30 foreign and domestic performers, DJs, live acts. There is also a greater number of creative workshops and exciting side events. In 2009 the festival is going to last 4 days, under the title “Independent Youth Festival of Electronic Music Palic”. festival tips S3P is located at the thermal pools near Lake Palic, which is a famous touristic destination in northern Serbia. Palic, the 7 km long lake and tourist centre used to be an elite resort and spa at the turn of the 19th and 20th centuries. The image of Palic has permanently been changing, improving and modernising, although it avoided the temptation of industrialisation. The two architects, Komor and Jakab, who left a permanent impression on the architecture of the city, also designed remarkable buildings in Palic as well, and these were also built in Hungarian art nouveau and dominated by woodcarvings inspired by folk handicrafts.
