Three Croatian festivals have been forced to postpone

Three festivals in Croatia have been postponed due to uncertainty surrounding travel and testing in Croatia.

Dimensions, Love International and Hospitality On The Beach have all been forced to move dates towards the end of 2021 or 2022.

The Garden Tisno was set to be the location for these festivals - which were scheduled for July. Dimensions has postponed until September 2 to 6, while Love International and Hospitality On The Beach have been moved into 2022.

The traffic-light system imposed by the UK Government has placed Croatia on the amber list, meaning that all visitors are will have to quarantine and take PCR tests. This has led to widespread rescheduling due to uncertainty about travel as well as the quality of the festivals themselves.

In a statement addressing the situation, Dimensions spoke of their disappointment about the festival being postponed: "We did all we could to make July happen, however, as things stand, there's still a high level of uncertainty about events taking place in Croatia in early summer and continued unpredictability surrounding travel and the ability to deliver a high class event. The safety of our customers, staff, artists and the local Croatian people is of utmost importance to us.

"By moving later in the summer, we can ensure a safer event and better protection from the virus. This gives us confidence the festival will become a reality and we'll finally be able to get together for this long awaited celebration (it's needed more than ever)! We’re closely monitoring the on-going situation and will keep everyone updated."
