MO:DEM FESTIVAL 6'th EDITION

24.07.2017. - 30.07.2017.

Time flies when you're having fun! And we are still trying to grasp the fact that it’s time for sixth edition of Mo:Dem Festival. We certainly didn’t come so far on our own, and first we want to bow and thank all those people who have helped us to achieve all we have done so far. THANK YOU! 

We believe that always pushing forward, growing and learning is the way how we continue to improve and make Mo:Dem Festival the unforgettable psychedelic experience. So after carefully reading your comments and critics from past year editions, we have put our effort into fixing the problems and improving the infrastructure to make your stay as comfortable as possible. In the 2017. edition you can expect additional changes and surprises.

For now we can only promise that Mo:Dem won’t stop improving and developing as the Festival. We are already working hard to make 2017. edition bigger and better. We are on the good path to offer you the unique festival experience on a high level of production, in one of the most beautiful venues nature can offer us. You know what to expect - diverse musical content and innovative installations, showcasing original and innovative psychedelic sounds and cutting edge visual and experimental art.

As you probably already know Mo:Dem is set in the most beautiful nature surrounded by trees and crystal clear waters. From the beginning ECOLOGY is important part of our story, and we have big plans in this department. As the new compost toilets were a big success, our plan is to push out the plastic ones completely in next few years.

Be aware that Mo:Dem politics is not about expanding it's numbers but investing in the quality and content, so tickets will be limited. We recommend that you buy your on time. Early bird tickets will be on-line in short period.

] GREEN MO:DEM [

Publish Date: 26/0472017

Ecology, respect to Nature and sustainability was Mo:Dem's focus from very start. As we are blessed with amazing location we wish to preserve the site as pure and untouched as we found it. We work really hard to ensure that by using only natural soaps, recycling all our used water on site, making food waste into compost, by sorting out our waste, etc. Also we provide our visitors with eco soaps, ashtrays and trash bags so everybody can be part of our purpose. Throughout the location we added a lot of recycling station bins with different color-coded bags; green for glass, yellow for plastic & aluminum and black for waste. Your feedback and effort was more than positive. Thank you!

Last year we started building compost toilet set up which enabled us to compost even more waste on site thus reducing our waste and pollution. We are proud to say that people living and working on festival site now use only compost toilets. This year we started building even more of them as we plan to reduce chemical toilets as much as we can. You can expect more improvements and surprises in this department in months that follow.

With love and passion,
Mo:Dem Crew

] FULL POWER LOVE [

Publish Date: 13/02/2007

Never mind all the Valentine media hype and mass consumption that goes with it, it' s crucial to show love and affection on daily basis and not only once a year. That's unquestionable! But we felt like giving something to the (future) Mo:Dem attendees in love. So for the whole week ahead we're having 20€ discount.

There is one trick... two to be exact. These tickets are only available at our Ambassadors and discount counts only if you buy them as a pair. We cannot give you answer on questions "what's love?" and "what it means to be in love?". All we know that love is big and it comes in all colors and sizes. So our Ambassadors will not examine the nature of your love as long as you buy tickets as a pair.

As usual residents of Bosnia And Herzegovina, Croatia, Cyprus, Greece, Hungary, Macedonia, Russia, Serbia and Slovenia are entitled to 20€ discount and that's not changing.

Ambassadors list

Love and passion,
MoDem Crew

Also due to the tourist law in Croatia each attendee is required to pay tourist tax. 4kn / 0.55 euro (per day) can be paid upon arrival directly to tourist board located at the gate of the festival.

] THE SWAMP DESIGN & VISUALS [

Publish Date: 31/01/17

New concept of The Swamp calls for new stage design. And that means new constructions, mappings, visuals and lighting systems. In this field we continue collaboration with artists that left their mark on past editions of Mo:Dem Festival: Manu Morvan & LiteMotif. We must admit that we're more than delighted to have them back.

Manu Morvan, also known as part of Third Hand Project, is multi-talented and versatile artist producing most incredible art installations and massive sculptures. In his artwork Manu is using only leftover wood and recycled materials. By doing so his sustainable installation sculptures can last for years to come. This is matching with our organic decoration and installations concept, which complement the natural beauty and surroundings of The Swamp stage. Sketches for this year's stage design are looking like they came from out of this word, so be sure to check the final product.
More info can be found on Manu's web page: http://manumorvan.blogspot.hr/

LiteMotif is collective specialized in visuals, mapping and various sorts of video art. Brain behind it is Goldo Litemotif; programmer, drummer and VJ. In last decade he has been actively engaged in a visual and interactive installations, video mapping, generative visuals and production of custom-made video software. Last year some of you maybe played with his interactive D.I.Y. visuals generator on the Alternative floor during the night. For this year LiteMotif is preparing something outstanding. You can expect next step in evolution of video production, visuals and lights.

Next time we will talk more about music concept and The Swamp line up.

] THE SWAMP [

Publish Date: 18/01/2017

As we announced with this year's edition we are starting our new concept with three musical stages. The first one we present is The Swamp. Located on the hottest and most memorable part of the Festivals location, the island, this stage will definitely be the biggest surprise of MoDem Festival 2017 (Moment Demento) .

Over the years our scene has grown, becoming more colorful and more diverse. Same is with Mo: Dem. We strongly believe That, at this moment, We are big enough to expand further. Because of that - The Swamp! Home for Dark Progressive, Psy Bass, Dub, Breaks, Techno, Glitch, etc ... with one common denominator; Psychedelic. The main philosophy behind it is DANCE. With program of full seven days filled with modern psychedelic music this stage will be counterbalance for the dancers that find 'slower' music more accessible.

In the past editions this stage was called Alternative. We consider that it's totally inappropriate to divide musical genres on 'main' and 'alternative'. Especially in psychedelic music which has always had rich and diverse roots and openminded approach. Promoting Psychedelic music regardless of the style was Mo: Dem's mission from the start.

Like never before the island will have the same signature that made our Festival distinctive, and this goes to approach to sound, light, decorations and construction. In the following weeks we will reveal everything we prepared for you. So stay tuned. 

Love and passion,
MoDem Crew

] THE HIVE, THE SWAMP & ZEN GARDEN [

Publish Date: 13/01/2017

It has been busy few months in Mo:Dem headquarters. After last year's successful edition we decided to open a new chapter in life of our Festival. One of the biggest news is that with 2017. we start our new concept with three musical stages: The Hive, The Swamp & Zen Garden. In the weeks that follow we will present philosophy and content of each stage. But the bottom line is that we are abandoning outdated concept that divides musical genres on 'main' and 'alternative'. In future every each segment of the Mo:Dem Festival will have equal treatment and approach. And we strongly believe that we will earn your trust in this milestone decision.

Love and passion,
