Goulash Disko Festival 2016

Global Music Festival lost in Paradise

About the project



Goulash Disko is a big family of beautiful souls, sharing the same love for music from the Global Underground. Crowdfunded, independent and sponsor free, the festival is an intimate gathering that truly belongs to its people...A magical experience combining positive music, virgin nature and collective awesomeness…

The festival will take place on 7/8/9/10 september 2016, plus the traditional opening night on the 6th, and most likely one extra day on the 11th. Since the location is absolutely awesome, we advise everyone to stay there for a week or more, and approach the journey as proper summer holidays...

After one year away from Komiža, we are delighted to announce that we are back! We were missing its beaches, its sunset, lemons, fresh fishes and laid back people...Our goal is now to work hand in hand with the locals to make Goulash Disko festival a true part of it, with a longer term vision. We believe that the soul of Goulash Disko belongs to this tiny fisherman village, and therefore decided to downsize the festival to the small scale, intimate and organic gathering that it should remain.

The festival will obviously be limited in capacity, and everyone taking part in it is expected to behave as proper Goulashian: with love, consciousness and respect. For those who don't know it, Komiža is a magical, beautiful village, completely lost in space and time. Impossible not to fall in love with, and it's easy to see why...

Musically, we want to cover the Global Underground as a whole: Global Bass, Tropical grooves, Oriental House, Gypsydelic, Swing Folk, Ethno Dub, Gypsy Punk and Latintronics, to name just a few. Goulash Disko Festival is meant to be a sonical journey through space and time, without limitations of any kind. Few potential headliners that we would like to invite this year: Nicola Cruz, Baris K, Quantic, Kaligola Disko Bazar, Panama Cardoon, Erwin & Edwin...or many others, for example La Yegros, the Argentinian queen of Nu-Cumbia; or Bukahara, a band that made a big impression at Goulash 2014. Those artists truly capture the spirit of Goulash Disko Festival, and it'd be awesome to invite them, if the budget allows it.

Of course, we will invite many artists who are part of Goulash Disko since the beginning, and who push the project forward for years now. Most likely to be seen at Goulash Disko Festival 2016: Rafael Aragon, Haris Pilton, Waggles, Balkan Hotsteppers, Izem, Spinforth, Kudjo, Cucurucho, Kapitano, Rocky Marsiano,...and many others. In total, we want to book 32 DJ’s and 8 live acts, plus walkabouts and artists of other kinds...

For you to get an idea, here are some delightful mixes from artists of the Goulash Disko family.

If you want to apply or suggest an act for the lineup, just fill in the form below.

Vis island is far from the coast, and that's what makes it so special. To get there, a ferry will take you from Split to Vis island. You can reach Split directly, but there are other low cost airports nearby - Zadar and Dubrovnik - which are lovely places to visit on your way. Both cities have frequent connections to Split with a bus ride that lasts between 2.5 and 4 hours. When you land on Vis, you can use your imagination to get to Komiža, located on the other side of the island. Bus, taxis or hitch hikes will be the most frequent options.

CAMPING:For the first time in its history (!), there will be a legal camping in Komiža. We received from the authorities a protected piece of land, shaded by pine trees and accessible with camper vans. In order to cover the costs of toilets, water and maintenance, a participation will be asked to everyone willing to camp there. The price still has to be defined, but you know we are no greedy capitalists :).

ROOMS, FLATS, HOUSES: There are plenty of accommodation options in the village, from basic rooms to luxury houses. Prices usually vary between 20 and 50€ per night per person. If you're struggling to book something, you can shoot us a mail at goulashdisko[@]gmail.com, and we'll do our best to sort you out. 

What are the funds for?

All the money raised through crowdfunding will be used to book artists, build the lineup and run the festival. Since we want stay sponsor free and 100% independant, we exclusively rely on your support...every penny counts, and your generosity will be greatly appreciated.

About the project owner

Originally, we are 2 people behind Goulash Disko : Iva and Yves. We started the night 5 years ago in Dublin, where we lived at the time. After moving away from Ireland and settling in Croatia, we decided to go little bigger and make a proper festival. Since then, Goulash is spreading all around Europe, with regular events in Zagreb and Ljubljana, but also Salzburg, Lisbon, Dublin and more. We approach Goulash Disko as an open source concept, and hundreds of artists are now part of the movement. Watching this baby growing really is a wonderful thing.

If you're not familiar with what we've been doing for the past 5 years, here is a sneak preview!

Here is where the whole Goulash Disko festival story started...

And last but not least, the official aftermovie from Goulash Disko Festival 2015 in Pula has arrived! Thank you all for the wonderful vibe and beautiful moments shared with us...many more to come this summer!

If you are not yet (completely) convinced that you should be part of the Goulash tribe 2016, you can shoot your questions at goulashdisko[@]gmail.com, or through our Goulash Disko Facebook page. You will also find regular updates, tips, good music and general awesomeness on the Goulash Festival Facebook event.

We hope to see you in paradise!
