The biggest European festival of bass music will once again be held in the beautiful city of Pula, Croatia, from 4th to 9th September 2019.
Say goodbye to the stone beauty Fort Punta Christo, as this will be the last time the festival will be held. Worry not, for Outlook has taken much care into making its last year one to truly be remembered. This summer, some of the most exciting performers will be taking the stage! Think performers such as the drum’n’bass duo Chase & Status, Manchester’s rapper Bugzy Malone, and, of course, Goldie, the true nobleman of drum’n’bass.
Built on the grounds of admiration towards the soundsystem culture, Outlook Festival supports the very founders of the scene, as well as the hottest talents and regional artists – in doing so, it unites thousands of bass lovers for four days and four nights. The world’s best loudspeakers will channel dubstep, bass, house, garage, hip-hop, drum’n’bass, grime, and everything in between, and all you have to do is just show up and enjoy everything that there possibly is to enjoy.
How do I get to Pula, and how do I get around it?
Getting to Pula will be quite easy. If you’re flying to the region or living nearby, you can reach it with the Nomago InterCity bus. Book your most comfortable ride here.
Once you get to Pula, you’ll want to be able to get around it swiftly. Luckily for you, Pula is well connected with city buses and taxis. Since it’s not a big city, you can also go around the town on foot, or rent a bike if you’d like. Of course, you can also always call a taxi.
What about accommodation?
You’ll be able to choose for several types of accommodation, depending on what you most prefer.
If you’d like to be as close to the music as you possibly can and pay as little money for accommodation as possible, take a camping pass for about 55€. You can check in from 4th September at 6:00 am, but make sure to check out before 12:00 pm on 9th September. If you wish to arrive early or stay longer, you can pay for the additional night at the campsite reception upon your arrival.
Of course, various hostels can be found in Pula as well. So, if you’d like to experience what it’s like staying in a hostel, or if hostels are the type of accommodation that you most prefer, you’re in luck!
Those of you who prefer to stay in more private spaces, you can rent out a local apartment close to the festival. Have no worries about accidentally losing something during the festival, just leave it in your apartment!
There is another type of accommodation that could be considered unusual – mobile homes. They are like normal small houses, but mobile. How cool is that? You’ll be able to sleep on the camping grounds surrounded by tents, but in a house.
You can find all types of accommodation and book it here.
