The first-of-its-kind stage will host some of the label’s most exciting live talent
With just 30 days to go until our highly anticipated seventh edition of Defected Croatia, we’re excited announce a new Live Stage - offering a different experience and new way to celebrate the music that we love.
Lighting up the festival’s Olive Grove stage on Tuesday 8th August will be a diverse line-up of live acts from across the house spectrum including familiar faces Davie, Girls of the Internet, Dave + Sam, Obi Franky and supergroup Dames Brown.
Joining our Croatia family for the first time will be YOURS – a newly formed collective redefining what it is to be a dance act in 2023. Made up of esteemed Irish vocalist Maverick Sabre, revered producer New Machine, entrepreneur and brand founder Jake Hall, and his DJ and music-obsessed brother Sonny Hall, the group will make their big debut this summer.
Multi-instrumentalist and vocalist Ben Westbeech will also be joining us this year, alongside acclaimed artist SeeMeNot, whose hypnotic vocal style and storytelling has quickly established her as a serious one to watch.
South African poet, singer-songwriter and Stay True Sounds regular Sio will make her festival debut in addition to the incredibly talented Manchester-born artist RAHH.
Leading their own path with roots embedded in musical history, daughters of Womack and Womack, The Womack Sisters complete the Live Stage line-up with their undeniable soulfulness and unique vocals that capture the very essence of Motown.
Continuing to demonstrate Defected’s pull for international, world-class talent, we look forward to introducing the Live Stage for this year’s Defected Croatia.
