It is here, it is happening and this is something that even has the most grizzled of The Yacht Week veterans are excited about. The Yacht Week is the perfect canvas for people from all over the world to come together and explore, we are experts in bringing incredible events to incredible places, we are a travelling armada of like minded individuals. Coming into the 2022 season we wanted to build something that offered our community a unique experience of travelling while being emersed in their music culture. We wanted to create a new way to experience music and culture.

Then we decided, why not do two? What sounds better than a week on a yacht in Croatia with 500 new friends, a top-tier international DJ headlining every single party as well as the production and venues to match?

This has led up to us very proudly announcing; The Yacht Week x Drumcode & The Yacht Week x Hot Creations. You may have danced with these artists at a music festival, or in a dark club through the night, but you have never experienced anything like this.

The Yacht Week x DRUMCODE

During Week 25 (June 18 - 25, 2022) techno will reign supreme in Croatia and we could not be more excited to be working with the almighty Drumcode Records. Founded in 1996 by techno and dance-music royalty Adam Beyer, Drumcode has become an unwaverable institution in the music industry. Championing forward-thinking diverse talent and some of the most creative records released over the last twenty six years, this is as good as it gets for techno fans.

We will also be blessed with the presence of the bossman himself, Adam Beyer who will be performing a very special, intimate set just for us. Expect soaring melodies, hard hitting basslines and more ‘untz untz untz’ than you have ever seen on The Yacht Week. The rest of the lineup will be confirmed in the coming months but with the label’s roster featuring superstars including Amelie Lens, Maceo Plex and Charlotte de Witte, Drumcode will be bringing the heat in a way that few imprints are capable of.

To get a taste of what to expect, check out Adam Beyer’s set from Awakenings @ Amsterdam Dance Event streamed live during the festival in late 2021.

The Yacht Week x HOT CREATIONS

In Week 29 (July 16 - 23, 2022) we will be playing host to the world-renowned Hot Creations imprint for seven days of pure house hedonism. Fronted by the boss himself, Jamie Jones and his crew will be bringing their temple of house music and wellness to Croatia for a specially curated program. Founded in 2012 by Jamie Jones and Lee Foss, Hot Creations will be turning ten with The Yacht Week and what better way to celebrate a decade at the top of the charts than by cranking out 4/4 goodness in Croatia for a week on the water. 

Spanning across any and all sub genres of house music, Jamie and the label itself have championed records from acclaimed artists including; Patrick Topping, The Martinez Brothers, Solardo as well as Monki, the latter of whom performed for The Yacht Week in Croatia during 2018!

So you can see what all the fuss is about, have a squiz at Jamie Jones’ set from 2019 recorded live from The Lab in Paris. Expect percussive wizardry, groovy basslines and soulful vocals that will have any house fan on the dance floor until well after the sun rises.
