Croatia's Zcre beach is undoubtedly one of the world's premier spots for a music festival of epic proportions, and that's just one of the reasons why Hideout Festival ticks multiple boxes when it comes to rave retreats abroad.

The five-day party is situated across some jaw-droppingly beautiful locations, while heaps of boat parties take the festival to a new dimension. Naturally, the event attracts heaps of top-class performers, as well as revelers, from around the world, with techno titans, house dons, bass heavy big dogs and more all descending upon Croatia between Monday 26th and Friday 30th June.

With a Hideout festival 2017 line-up that includes the likes of Major Lazer Soundsystem, Patrick Topping, Eats Everything and Wiley, you'll be spoilt for choice so we've handpicked five artists to make your life that bit easier.

David Rodigan

The don of the dubplate knows just about every trick in the book when it comes to unleashing party starting reggae vibes upon a sun-kissed festival crowd. Expect Rodigan to drop some of the meatiest, dubby sounds whilst also taking to the microphone with aplomb and inciting a fervent reaction.

You couldn't really ask for a better location to witness the iconic figure traverse through dancehall, rocksteady and reggae, with his Tuesday slot looking like a certain triumph already.

Leon Vynehall

Vynehall's brand of deep, resonant house music blends with a distinctly downtempo element to create an intensely enjoyable live experience. The producer's latest work Rojus (Designed To Dance) (Running Back) followed in the same vein as his 2014 debut with basslines that rumble away below shining synths and disco esque string sections.

All this amounts to a highly satisfying live experience which is to be expected when Vynehall joins the bill at Hideout on Thursday 29th June.

DJ Koze

To say Germany brings it for techno would be something of an understatement, with the heritage of Tresor, Vath, Westbam and the immortal Berghain all helping the nation take Detroit's early ruminations to dizzying levels.

Where it really gets interesting though is when the sound is slowed down and taken wholly weird, something Koze is the master of. Plenty would tell you his trippy sonics aren't emblematic of the genre, but his Wednesday set should give you the opportunity to explore just how interesting his take on it, and electronic music at large, is.

Mele

Big on tribal-influenced sounds, Mele's flavour of house music is much more primal, fast-paced and layered. With so much similar sounding music on offer at festivals around the globe, the Merseyside-raised DJ and producer offers fresh and dynamic sets which are totally unique to him. 

With a few party tracks thrown in alongside his own productions, expect Mele's set to be the ultimate sunshine companion as you groove on Zcre Beach.

Heidi

As a Hideout veteran, Heidi knows exactly the right components for a standout set on the idyllic beach strip. Loaded with her signature jackin' house sounds, her selections are no-fuss and all power. 

If you're in need of something to perk you up, or you're a lover of all things house music, a high-energy set from the Jackathon head honcho will do just the trick.
