Watch the Teaser
Applebum, The Beach Beyond is a journey of discovery, unearthing a new generation of talent from music, art and culture. Where the feeling of discovering a new favourite artist is only matched by rediscovering nostalgic sounds of the past. A place where breakthrough talent is given a platform to positively thrive alongside established artists and where audiences can feel part of growing something really special from the start, in a spectacular inspirational setting.
The Beach Beyond is an adventure beyond any holiday experience, an experience where dramatic coastlines and breathtaking woodlands provide the backdrop to a party filled with fun, freedom and friendships. Where choosing between dancing all day at our beach stage or wild swimming in the crystal clear sea is your hardest decision of the day. A place where dancing under the stars until the early hours of the morning becomes a nightly ritual.
The Beach Beyond, is a community of like minded souls. Whether you’re in a large group, or travelling solo, we aim to inspire new connections. We are a generation where collaboration is king, community is key and “we” is before “me.” Actively encouraging knowledge and skills to be shared, we’ll provide a place to learn, contribute and create, with classes, talks and a pop-up studio on site.

The Festival Site
The location for Applebum, The Beach Beyond is The Garden Resort, a true slice of paradise nestled on the Dalmatian coastline. Set in a magnificent natural amphitheatre with gently rolling hills leading down to our own private bay, a shimmering sandy beach and crystal-clear waters. An undiscovered, secluded paradise just a short walk from the beautiful town of Tisno, the site has a truly festival feel whilst retaining the intimacy so special to everyone who graces it. Also home to Defected Croatia, Love International, Suncebeat and Hospitality on the Beach, Applebum are delighted to be welcomed to the site amongst such established brands, bringing a spectrum of fresh swung sounds from Urban, Soul and Electronic music to The Garden.
Tisno, Croatia is conveniently located halfway between the cities of Zadar (60mins) and Split (90 mins), which are both served by international airports. Many well-known airlines fly from the UK to Croatia. The old town is charming and picture-perfect with a host of restaurants, cafes, apartments and is connected to the island of Murter by bridge. There’s some amazing places to eat and drink in Tisno and with a pint of local beer costing not much more than a few quid and a meal in a local restaurant costing less than £10 your money will go a long way in Tisno. Worshipped by revellers, Tisno is one of the most beautiful villages in Europe and is framed by the Adriatic sea. If you’re travelling between Tisno village and The Garden Resort Festival site, you might as well do it in style, you can call up a taxi boat to take you to and from various drop off points around the coast. If you fancy something a touch more relaxing, Krka National Park is the perfect antidote and located about 35mins away. Renowned for the breath-taking waterfalls, Krka is visited by hundreds daily, eager to get a taste of paradise.
