Festival program

What - When - Where

Tuesday, 4th July

On the first day Salsa God created dancers and the music. And then Salsa God said, “Let there be a Hot Spot, where they can dance and mingle and drink cocktails with little umbrellas” – and there was Hot Spot.

And it was all good.

SALSA GENESIS, DAY 1

Register

It’s smart to register when you come to the Solaris so that you are set for the rest of the festival. Don’t wait for the party to avoid cues.

Beach Hot Spot

14:00 – 20:00

Legend Bar (stranded pirate ship), 15:30 – 20:00 Sizzling Spot (With DJ)

If sightseeing is your cup of tea, sooner is the better as you will be missing more the later you decide to go… Just sayin’

 NP Krka

Go Krka

First things first

If you are coming on Tuesday take first day easy to what Croatian would say “Catch the village beat” – meaning to match your heartbeat to the Dalmatian pace… Which is much slower than you think. Much, much slower. If done properly you will understand (and forgive) why you have to wait 15 minutes for a simple coffee.

Hot Spot is the thing

Don’t miss the hot spot! It’s the festival’s meeting point that is just a must so do roam around, go to workshops, visit the city, throw yourself in the sea and do whatever… But come back to the Hot Spot.

Some pics
Still not too late to take a look around... Consider Dubrovnik if you never saw it

Dubrovnik

Go Dubrovnik

Save your feet

This one is for girls – SBSF lasts for 6 days so feet management is a must. Don’t wear your highest heels on Wednesday as you will probably tire your feet till Saturday. Also if you bought new shoes today leave them for local socials.

 Also check the ZERO TOLLERANCE policy:

Taking off from Solaris CAMP port

“Just 5 minutes”

If you returned from the boat trip and you are planing to take a short nap and then prepare for the party – it’s likely that you will come to the party at 5am. So take that into account =)

Maybe a break?

If you arrived on Tuesday or you attend seminars or a boat trip – consider coming late to this party and staying till the end or coming early and going to sleep early to be fresh for the weekend madness.

Know the DJs

If you are not doing it so far, please start now: When you hear a good song that makes you run to the dance floor so you don’t lose a single beat – take a look at who is playing.

Hidrate!

It’s summer. It’s hot. You are dancing intensively. It’s obvious that you will be losing a lot of water. So don’t faint around – carry a bottle of water with you all the time.

Best version of you

Well… It’s a Saturday party so when we say “guys in ties and girls in pearls” we want to gently impose a dresscode that should inspire you to be in your best-stylish-sparkly-superawesome-spectacular edition.

So put your best suit/dress/poncho on and stay till the end for a survivors photo.

No excuses.

Sunday, 9th July

“On the sixth day salsa god turned over his left shoulder and glanced upon his creation. And the salsa god was happy. And content. Then he pondered on how to create something even more spectacular and more fun than everything he created so far… And there was a Pool Party.

And it was all good”.

Leave the valuables at hotel

Smart thing would be to bring only the amount of money you want to spend and that’s it.

Don’t overestimate yourself

77 mojitos and a bottle of rum on the scorching sun on an empty stomach is a bad idea. You know that. Get enough rest and eat before the Pool Party.

Last but the best

Sunday parties are always the best. Some say that Saturday is the new Sunday and even that Friday is the new Sunday but all of that just doesn’t make any sense =) Regardless… It is a great party, everyone is relaxed and at their best.

Stay till 8 at least.

Now let’s all go and sleep for a week.
