Summer is made for this

All day long

Hot Spot

Hot Spot is the heart of the Salsa Beach Splash Festival. So, do roam around, visit the city and browse other locations and everything – but come back to the Hot Spot. We will all be there. We will mingle, dance in the sun and get the most of that summer thing.

Take a bow

We present you

Supercool Artists

Salsa Artists are our mentors. We choose to attend certain workshop because we admire the artist’s personal interpretation and the particularity he brings to the table. All of them are very good performers and teachers, but some of them are great. We tried to bring you the finest blend of carefully selected international artists that, in our humble opinion, represent what the essence of salsa dance is… Or what it could be… Or what it should be.

Go nuts!


Pool Party

This is a dream party for all you party animals out there! Pool Party has it all: if you prefer chilling with your Mojito and soak up the sun or dive in to the euphoric crowd, or anything in between – it is there. There’s also a bar in the pool so you don’t have to get out of the water to get your favorite drink.


St. James Cathedral Open Air Concert

St. James Cathedral

Open Air Concert

500 years of footsteps unintentionally polished the stone in front of the St. James Cathedral to create a perfect floor for your latest salsa steps… This authentic, 15th century stage and a live band concert provide the charm and atmosphere that will take you to the journey you will keep among your favorite salsa memories.


grow and prosper

(Keep yourself Red-Bull-ed)

Manage your sleep


Neverending Parties

At Salsa Beach Splash Festival parties last till breakfast. It takes a serious salsero/a to endure 6 of them with all the beach fun, Hot Spot madness and workshops – it is really hard to do. So please mind your feet, manage your sleep and stay hydrated. (Vodka, Tequila and Mohito don’t hydrate you) – just saying. And see you at breakfast!

Few testimonials

SBSF was simply The Absolutely BESTEST congress I've ever been to. Number of spectacular dances and dancers is simply unmatched. Big thanks to everyone who made it soooo special and possible for us!
Replay needed indeed!

Marian Grocky, SBSF addict

Apologies for this, but I have a major complaint about the Salsa Beach Splash Festival: I am about to get hit by major post-congress-depression, I miss absolutely everyone, I don't think I'll be able to appreciate average DJ sets ever again, my feet are no longer happily throbbing and above all, I am more addicted to bloody salsa than ever. You people have ruined me!! I need more! - feeling emotional.

Annabelle Judd, SBSF Post-Depressionist

I'm back from Salsa Beach Splash Festival and I can say I'm in a relationship with this event and it was love at the first sight. As ussual, I had the best time, I saw my old crazy friends and I made new ones, I enjoyed every party, every HotSpot party and the best pool party in the world.
Many thanks to organizers for this amazing week, for my romanian crazy crew, for my brother from another mother, Ahmed, for my friends around the world, for the Leon Rose crew, for the amazing instructors: Rodrigo, Selene, Magna, Franklin Diaz. Can't wait for the next SBSF in 2015

Monica Dobroiu, SBSF Veteran

Šibenik is definitely one of my favourite congresses, if not THE favourite everything feels just perfect, we have the perfect location (not to mention the beach , all the perfect artists (it's great that they always tend to bring new people, and people that are not on EVERY congress around in Europe), perfect parties with just perfect dj's and not to forget the amazing bootcamps and special workshops one can attend Well if I would have one complain to add I would, the problem is that I just don't.
