SunSplash Festival reveals stunning new 2014 location and first wave of artists

SunSplash Festival returns this June for a sun soaked 6th edition at its beautiful new beachside location of Aspat Beach, in Bodrum Turkey.

SunSplash founder Serkan Cetin says: “Our new venue takes us back to nature, a picturesque creek shaded by giant eucalyptus trees, a truly breathtaking bay with a fantastic beach and all overlooked by the spiritual presence of Aspat Mount, our music mountain!

Embracing all the natural beauty of the Turkish Mediterranean, the festival’s stunning new home of Aspat Beach truly reflects the ethos of SunSplash and it’s festivalgoers. Nestled inside a private bay, the new site features a huge private palm fringed beach, a tropical style beach bar, a natural creek shaded by enormous eucalyptus trees, beach bungalow accommodation, historic ruins guarded by the noble Aspat Mountain, the top of which extends stunning views across the Turkish Mediterranean and the festival site itself. With extensive gardens, open spaces, sea breeze, wind sports, yoga zone, outdoor workshops and more. Aspat beach is the perfect venue!

Once again, SunSplash Festival brings together a wonderful discerning selection of artists and tastemakers from around the world who are all, in their own way, at the forefront of international dance music culture. The festival delights in presenting a sunny, soulful music policy that reaches the eclectic depths and diverse corners of dance music from our soul, jazz and disco heritage to contemporary classics and cutting edge electronica.

The festival promises a fantastically friendly crowd, an amazing beachfront venue and a blissful week of Sun, Sea, and Legendary Music, all the best things to make a splash about, jump in!
