Outlook Festival 2011 [Event]

It's not long now til I fly to Outlook Festival! So I thought it'd be worthwhile making a post about it! I'm sure many people who will read this will know what Outlook is all about and some of you are probably going! Outlook is a festival dedicated to UK and international bass music set on the beautiful back drop of the Adriatic sea (the ocean between Italy and Croatia). The festival is based in an old 19th century fort, Fort Punta Christo which was originally used by the Austrian navy as a port. Now it is fairly uninhabitable besides the odd festival which it plays home too.

The decapitated fort is the perfect location for Outlook Festival and I was blown away by its eerie and creepy it has during the day but at night, the place comes alive with sound systems and a considerable amount of low frequency pleasure. My first time at Outlook was last year when they first moved to Fort Punta Christo and I had an excellent time, so much so that I decided to go again! Flying in to Venice, I'll be making me way through Slovenia and then into Croatia a few days before the festival starts! Will be camping up by the ocean and the brilliant camp site which is located 10 minutes away from the Fort, 5 minutes from the docks to enjoy a boat party or two and what will be home to the excellent daily beach parties!

If you're into bass music whether it be dubstep, drum and bass, reggae, dub or house/funky. This place is for you, it has one seemingly simple objective and that is provide good vibes and it definitely succeeded last year.

The line up this year is the best yet, here's a list of some of the people I'll be checking out:
