Fatboy Slim and Underworld on Riva

The rumor mill is gaining momentum as the summer approaches and the popular Discotheque Riva turns Split’s popular waterfront into a massive concert venue.

The organizers behind Discotheque Riva claim that their annual event on the waterfront is considered the biggest open-air disco in the world and for the past three years, their line-up has included Carl Cox, Faithless Sound System, and David Morales.

On the night of Discoteque Riva, Split’s waterfront promenade is fenced off and transformed into one massive party nestled against the Adriatic.

Discotheque Riva will be announcing the 2013 line-up next week but a mouse has whispered and it is believed that legend Fatboy Slim and Underworld will gather crowds on Riva for two days on August 8th and 9th.

Underground is a British electronic music group consisting of Karl Hyde and Rick Smith who have been performing on the most state-of-the-art electronic gadgets since the 1980s. They are particularly known for their song “Born Slippy,” made for the cult film, “Trainspotting.”

Legend Fatboy Slim has been around Croatia before, performing in Umag, Zrće and Dubrovnik and we are hoping the biggest name in electronic dance music will be making magic in Split this summer. Famous for songs like “Right About Now, Funk Soul Brother” and “Praise You,” it is no wonder the performer broke records when 250,000 rocked up to one of his concerts a decade ago.

Total Split will keep you up to date as long as the crew at Discotheque Riva confirms the line-up for 2013. Fingers crossed!

Grand Opening: The Split Circus Rakija Joint Branches Out with an Underground Club

Split Circus, a.k.a. the smallest but craziest joint in town, brought something new to the streets of Split by infusing it with local spirit as they list a tempting selection of rakija (local grappa) offered in more than 25 smashing flavours at 9-15KN a pop! 

Now the circus expands with the opening of a new venue, aiming to provide a new home to those escaping the upperclass clubs with high heals and shiny buckles. 

Krvavo Kopito, meaning bloody hoof, is the creative (slightly morbid) name of this underground hide-out near Bacvice, which will surely be a popular chill-out for alternatives and cool misfits. Krvavo Kopito's quirky interiors, eclectic color combinations and wall graphics brings you right back to your teen DIY basement hangout; an extended living room where no parents are allowed.


The Grand Opening of Krvavo Kopito (Split Circus II) kicks of this Friday February 15th at 20:00 in the basement of Jadranska 1 as DJ Roo and Voodoo Jukebox spin a varied repertoire spanning all the popular decades of the last century.

So join the circus and bump shoulders into the night in what will be THE coolest hangout to hit town.
