Fresh Island Fest­iv­al have announced acts for their sev­enth edi­tion today. Along­side the stel­lar lineup, the sum­mer escape will host a week of boat parties, poolside DJ sets and more in one of the most beau­ti­ful regions of the Adriatic.

Slidi­in’ into every­one DMs at Fresh Island 2018 will be the Stef­flon Don who head­lines the fest­iv­al. Since her first appear­ance in Jeremi­h’s Lon­don in 2016 along­side Krept & Kon­an, the UK sing­er and song­writer has gone from strength to strength with a col­lab­or­a­tion with last year’s head­liner French Montana her song Hurtin’ Me which had the crowd going wild in 2017. Steff’s per­form­ance on Zrce beach this sum­mer will be truly unmissable.

One of the hot­test names in UK music J Hus will be deliv­er­ing his sig­na­ture sounds of afrobeats, reg­gae and grime from his debut album ‘Com­mon Sense’, which smashed into the UK top 10. 2017 was an unstop­pable year for the east Lon­don­er and the back­drop of the Croa­tian coast­line will be an unfor­get­table and unique set­ting to wit­ness the likes of Did You See and Bouff Daddy.

Also set to appear is Grammy-nom­in­ated Gold­link, who travels over the Atlantic to bring hits from his latest album ‘At What Costs’. Pro­du­cer Statik Selektah makes a very wel­come return to Fresh Island, hav­ing first per­formed back in 2015 where he also shot the music video to 2015’s Beau­ti­ful Life with Action Bron­son and Joey Bada$$.

Anoth­er big name in hip-hop mak­ing his return to the fest­iv­al is Tim West­wood. The renowned UK DJ’s pool party sets at Fresh Island have become legendary and West­wood took things to anoth­er level in 2017 when he wowed crowds last year with played a killer six hour set of hip-hop, grime, dance­hall and r&b.

Mak­ing sure the parties con­tin­ue through­out the week are UK’s finest crews includ­ing Shore­bitch, Faded, Cheese on Bread, Shorty Bless, So Fresh So Clean and Stam­ina.

Fresh Island Fest­iv­al 2018 takes over the huge open air clubs of Aquar­i­us, Kalypso and Papaya on Zrce beach dur­ing the week of July 7th — 13th, with main stage per­form­ances tak­ing place 10th-12th July.
