Dimensions Festival is FINALLY here! We’d like to welcome you to the first Dimensions Festival. The response across Europe has been inspiring and we’re thrilled that so many people regard our line up for this year as possibly the best festival line up of the summer. Focusing on the deep end of the electronic music spectrum, Dimensions festival features some of our favourite names in techno, electronica, house, deep dubstep and drum & bass. We’re delighted that you have decided to join us on our first year. The festival is held in the beautiful site of Fort Punta Christo, Pula. This stunning location is an abandoned fort built in the eighteen hundreds, a spectacular atmospheric venue located on a peninsular and surrounded by the crystal waters of the Adriatic. The beautiful beach, intimate boat parties and the dramatic fort itself providing a platform for the wide range of electronic artists we have brought together for what should be a magical weekend. Taking over the site from Thursday 6th of September right through until the late evening of Sunday the 9th, Dimensions Festival aims to be an intimate affair, with a limited capacity and relaxed atmosphere. So as our anticipation rises for what should be a wonderful week of sunshine, smiling faces and great music we’ve prepared a helpful document of information that should help you in planning your stay and travel here. Looking forward to meeting you all, we hope you are getting as excited as we are. Love & happiness from the Dimensions Team.
1.2 BASIC ESSENTIAL CHECKLIST Whilst we know you’re all hyped up to set off on your journey to Dimensions festival, we dont want you getting over- excited and forgetting the basic essentials! It may seem silly, and you’re probably all packed and ready to go, but just on the off chance you’ve forgotten something, heres a little checklist to make sure you don’t arrive to Pula cursing yourself for leaving something on the kitchen table...
Bank card you booked with
Visa (if needed)***
Travel & Medical insurance**
Drivers licence (if needed)
***Visa’s - Foreign visitors do not normally require visas to enter Croatia. Citizens of the U.S., the U.K., EU countries, Australia and New Zealand DO NOT need visas.Also visa requirements have also been abolished for citizens of Russia, the Ukraine, Azerbaijan and Kazakhstan for the period 1st April to 31st October 2012. Citizens from these countries do not need to obtain a visa to visit Croatia for a stay of up to 90 days. For other countries, please check the Croatian Ministry of Foreign Affairs’ website. ( http://www.mvep.hr ) If you do need one, please contact the Croatian Embassy in your country (also detailed on the Ministry of Foreign Affairs’ website) for more information on how to obtain a visa. **Travel insurance - The Croatian state requires every foreigner to have a valid health insurance or travel insurance that covers the costs that might occur during their stay in Croatia with regards to the repatriation costs due to health reasons, urgent medical assistance and/or urgent hospital treatment.You should take out comprehensive travel insurance. Check any exclusions, and that your policy covers you for all pre-existing conditions. We strongly recommend that every festival attendee has a travel insurance policy to cover medical emergency and personal possessions whilst in Croatia. We’ve teamed up with TAGIS to offer Outlook and Dimensions customers comprehensive travel insurance for as little as £14.48 for a 5-day cover. http://www.travel-general.com/travelinsurance_different.aspPlease note this insurance is only available for customers travelling to Croatia from within Europe (excluding Switzerland, Belarus, Ukraine and Montenegro)
1.3 WHAT TO BRING TO DIMENSIONS FESTIVAL Apart from the basic essentials on the previous page, there are vital items every festival goer needs. If you’re just starting to pack and have no idea of where to begin, heres an idea of what to bring to DImensions festival. AS LITTLE CLOTHES AS POSSIBLE- You’re going to a festival, not moving house. Bringing your entire wardrobe across Europe will be your biggest regret when your hauling your bag across the camp site. INSECT REPELLENT- Croatia has mosquitos. They bite. Don’t blame us, we don’t like them either. Just show them who’s boss and cover yourself in repellent. SUN CREAM- Don’t fancy being mistaken for a lobster for the entire festival? Thought not. Please lather yourself in sun cream so you can show off your tan when you get home. And for those prone to sun-burn (you know who you are), please bring some after-sun or aloe-vera. A JUMPER- no we’re not going mad. Of course its going to be gorgeous Croatian sunshine by day, it can get cold by night. You’ll thank us when you’re all snuggled up in your tent. CAMERA- To take pictures of the randomers you meet along the way. Obviously! AN OLD MOBILE PHONE- there is no need to bring the latest Iphone to the festival. Because more than likely you are going to lose it raving on a boat or dancing on your way to a port-a-loo. Bring an old brick of a phone your dad would be ashamed to be seen with (think Trigger Happy TV), that way when you drop it into a pint of beer, you can have a laugh about it rather than cry your eyes out. TOWELS- definitely needed for camping and a good idea if you’re staying in an apartment as well as they’re not always provided. ZIPLOCK BAGS- Dont fancy a shampoo explosion in your suitcase? No sir. Alienate your toiletries and be super prepared. TOILET PAPER- You may feel stupid bringing it, but when you REALLY need it, you’ll be thanking your lucky stars that you brought it. If CAMPING- torch, sleeping bag, travel pillow, tent, mat, towl etc. If you’ve bought some of these items from us please collect them from campsite registration upon arrival to the festival
1.4 WHAT NOT TO BRING TO DIMENSIONS FESTIVAL
GLASS- glass can break and cut hands. Cuts and scrapes don’t go well with a tan. PETS- Sorry, but bringing pets into Dimensions festival is strictly forbidden. Buddy and Whiskers will just have to miss out on the fun. STILLETTOS- Why would you even consider bringing them? AIR HORNS- They’re loud, unnecessary & annoying. PADLOCKS- Padlocks on tents indicate that you’ve left something valuable in there. Keep your expensive items in the storage boxes provided on site.
1.5 FESTIVAL RULES: Leave no trace – There are litter & recycling bins provided – PLEASE USE THEM. There is no excuse to leave litter everywhere. Don’t leave it for someone else to clear up, but take responsibility for your own rubbish so that this beautiful festival site stays beautiful and can be enjoyed by everyone else as well. Be courteous– Please be respectful and courteous to all those around you; staff and fellow festival-goers, visitors and Croatians. Stick to paths - Please do not wander off into the undergrowth and try to keep to paths as this region of Croatia has a number of scorpions, spiders and snakes that do bite. Areas signed off limits or out of bounds are not safe for public access No food or drink- Food and drink may not be brought inside the Festival site, including bottles of water, but there are several water pumps inside the site. No flip-flops or sandals in venues - Flip-flops/sandals are strictly not allowed at the Fort or Harbour. Only to be used for the Beach Arena and Campsite. You must be wearing trainers or some other form of sturdy shoe in order to be allowed entrance. This is for your own safety as the ground is not suitable for unprotected feet and we do not want hundreds of stubbed toes, bruised heels and sprained ankles. No professional recording - Unauthorised professional cameras and video/audio equipment are prohibited. Live video/audio recordings made without the permission of the artist/promoter are prohibited. No drugs or illegal substances– The Croatian authorities take a very strict stance on the use of drugs. We strongly advise that you do not bring drugs with you or try to buy drugs out here. There WILL be a strong police presence here at the festival, both uniformed and plain clothed. If you are caught with drugs or caught clearly under the influence of drugs you will be arrested and taken to the police station and, at the very least you, will spend the night in a cell and be given a hefty fine (minimum €300). Laughing Gas- Due to the change of laws in Croatia, Laughing Gas is now prohibited, therefore it will not be permitted on the festival site. No guns or knives– Or potentially dangerous objects. Lost property- Will all end up in our Information Point,located in the Customer Village. Please check in there before you leave the site. It is worth noting that all remaining lost property will be handed over to the Campsite on 15th September. We care! We have some of the best medics and welfare services you can find. We will be providing these services 24 hours a day. Please ensure that when you arrive on site you are aware of the welfare tent, which will be in the Customer Village. This way, will be able to deal with many issues on-site without spending a long time travelling to and waiting around at the local hospital

6. VISITING CROATIA- ALL YOU NEED TO KNOW. 6.1 MONEY Pre ordering money One way to save money is to pre-order your foreign currency online and pick up at the airport before you depart. Try Travelex for the best rates and no commission. www.travelex.co.uk/uk/
Wiring Money Having money wired from home is not convient or cheap, and should be considered as a last resort. Its also possible to have monet wired directly from your bank in your home country to a bank Croatia, however this is less reliable as it involves two separate institutions. If this is something you would opt for, your home bank will need the address of the bank you want to pick up your cash from and address and telephone of the Zagreb head office, which will act as a middle man. Money wiring normally takes two working days to arrive and costs about £25 per transaction. Some money wiring companies are Thomas Cook (www.thomascook.com / 01733/318 922-British contact number), Travelers Express MoneyGram. (www.moneygram.com ) and Western Union (www.westernunion.com)
6.2 PAYPHONES & TELEPHONES Payphones Payphones are dotted all around Pula. You’ll need a phone card to use the payphones, which are available at any post office, tobacco shops and newspaper kiosks. They are sold in units, which are available in 25(15kn), 50 (30kn), 100 (50kn) and 300 (100kn). 3minutes on the phone in Croatia will proabably cost about 12kn to UK and Europe and around 15kn to Austrailia and the USA. The country access code for calling Croatia is +385. Mobile Phones The three main mobile phone networks in Croatia are T-Mobile, VIP and Tele2. If bringing your handset from home, you will find it will hook up automatically to one of these. If you think you’ll be using your mobile phone a reasonable amount to either make phone calls within Croatia, or text and call home, you should consider purchasing a pre-paid SIM card. The three mobile network operators all have details of these on their websites and you can buy SIMs at some newsagents within Pula. On that note, phone chargers will be available on-site, located in the customer village & campsite. Make sure you call your home mobile phone operator before travelling, to make sure that roaming is enabled. At the same time, you’ll probably want to switch off data roaming if you have a smartphone, so you don’t rack up crazy data charges!
6.3 General Information • • • • •
Electricity is 220V, 50Hz. Croatia uses the standard European 2 round point plugs. The weights and measures system is metric. Croatia is 1 hour ahead of BST, the same time zone as the majority of Western Europe. The dialing code for Croatia is +385.
6.5 Health No inoculations are required to travel to Croatia. It is safe to drink tap water on the main land but double check when on the islands. Most common health problems within tourists are sunstroke , sunburn & dehydration so it is strongly advised to have a bottle of water and suncream on you at all times. Flip flops are a big no-no when in the festival arenas so to avoid feet injuries we would encourage festival-goers to wear trainers.
6.6 Crime / Women Travellers/ Gay & Lesbian Travellers The crime rate in Croatia is low by European standards. Tourists’ main defence against petty theft is to exercise common sense and to avoid flaunting luxury items. Dimensions festival encourages every festival attendee takes out travel insurance and always carry a copy of crucial information-bearing pages of your passport - this will help you immensely when consulating your new travel documents in the event of your passport being stolen. Women do not face any particular travel difficulties in Croatia. They are treated with courtesy and respect in both big cities and small towns. Even though homosexuality is legal in Croatia, some travellers have experienced issues. However in Zagreb you’ll find openly gay clubs. Public displays of affection between same sex couples may be met with hostility, especially outside major cities. For more info check out www.travel.gay.hr
6.7 Embassies & Consultates Zagreb is the main diplomatic base and a number of countries have embassy representatives in Split. Most embassies and consulates are open Mon - Fri 8/9am - 4/5pm, and close for an hour at lunchtime. Lost Passports: In an emergency an Emergency Passport (EP) valid for one journey back to the UK can be issued in Zagreb, Split or Dubrovnik, and an Emergency Travel Document (ETD), which can be a two-way document, can only be issued in Zagreb. Applications for ETDs made in Split and Dubrovnik will be sent to Zagreb for issuing so bear in mind that there will be time delays and extra cost (courier) if not applying in Zagreb. If you lose your passport at the festival, please make your way to the Customer Information Point, which will be located in the Customer Village, and a helpful volunteer will assist you in getting the relevent documentation/ information. Also be sure to enquire in lost propetry to see if it has been handed in. What the Embassy can do: • Issue an Emergency Travel Document/ • Provide information about transferring funds from the UK; • Provide a list of local lawyers; • Do all they properly can to contact you within 24 hours of being told that you have been detained; • In an emergency, contact your family and friends with your permission What the Embassy CANNOT do: • Get you out of prison or interfere in criminal or civil court proceedings; • Give you legal advice; • Investigate a crime; • Get you better treatment in hospital or prison than is given to local people; A list of embassies and their contact details can be found at the following address : http://www.croatiaapartments.net/croatia_tourist_information_embassies.html
