One of Papaya’s main attractions is its huge ‘after beach’ parties that take place throughout the entire festival season. We’re talking every day from 3pm to 8pm from late May to early September. Just a quick shimmy shimmy away from the sea, this open-air club is the perfect hot spot for lovers of warm, sunny Croatian climes mixed and blended in with some quality non-stop festival action. Glancing back to last year, Paul Kalkbrenner, MK, Marco Carola, Loco Dice and W&W were amongst the heady list of artists and DJs that lit up Zrce beach.
With a determination to keep things fresh and sparkling, renovations have been taking place — some new features on their shell-like main stage, improvements to lights and sound, and some cheeky tweaks to their already wondrous VIP and pool area. So this year is the big reveal. And Hideout, DJ Mag Beach, Sonus and Armada Croatia aren’t even half of the line-up on the cards for the summer ahead. But let’s not forget the local DJs that make up the backbone of clubs like this. Kosta Radman, Marzz, Superfine and Jurki host resident nights alongside the likes of Armada Deep, Elrow, Cocoon.
