2012 sees the debut of a new festival from the organisers of Outlook. Set in the same stunning location, Fort Punta Christo in Croatia, Dimensions will take place from 6-9 September. Beach parties, boat parties and a whole host of different activities will be on during the day followed by a trip up to the fort as the sun sets. Being just one week after Outlook, you can expect the heaviest sound-systems still to be in place combined with underground art culture installations all backdropped by the picturesque Adriatic landscape. The lineup is outstanding and spans across the deeper side of the electronic music spectrum, catering for all tastes from Dubstep to Disco and Techno to Drum & Bass. The full line-up is listed below.
