Ed Banger to host stage at Defected Croatia 2023

Celebrating two decades of being one of Europe’s most acclaimed labels, with its roster of world-class artists selling out venues across the globe, Ed Banger Records joins Defected Croatia’s festival line-up with a debut stage takeover this August.

In March of this year, the legendary French record label took over Printworks London for a night stacked with the very best modern French house and nu disco music; one of the legendary venue's final events before its closure in April.

Now, Ed Banger Records will have their very own stage at the festival on Monday 7th August 2023.

Bringing to Tisno a host of exciting talent – Breakbot & Irfane will be joined by festival first-timers Louise Chen, Erol Alkan, Yasmin and Myd for a takeover on the penultimate day of the festival.

This year’s line-up demonstrates Defected’s pull for international, world-class talent, with first time appearances from legendary acts as well as the scene’s future stars.

The Ed Banger crew will join A-list acts from the world of house and dance music, including Harry Romero, Eats Everything, Rimarkable, Fat Tony, Todd Edwards, TSHA, Dan Shake, The Shapeshifters, Boys Noize, Darius Syrossian, Hannah Wants and many, many more! See below for the full line-up.

Ed Banger will also takeover the official Defected Best Club & House Tracks playlist, and make sure to stream the Defected Croatia 2023 playlist too, featuring confirmed artists for this year's summer highlight.

With the Adriatic coastline offering a serene backdrop, Defected Croatia brings together over 5000 house fans with the unifying power of music for an unforgettable festival week year-on-year.

Praised for its inclusive atmosphere and world class production, and described by Mixmag as “an ecstatic, extravagant spectacle”, there is no doubt Croatia 2023 will continue to be a highlight in your calendars.
