After a season in which it officially became the second most attended Croatian music festival, Sea Star continues posting fantastic results in 2023. Just over two months before the event, almost two-thirds of the capacity has been sold out, and according to Entrio’s official top sales list, Sea Star is currently the best-selling event in Croatia!

In the finishing stages of international marketing campaign, which will only now reach its full strength, it is safe to assume that the numbers will be better than all the previous years, and maybe even those from record-setting premiere year of 2017. That first year was the model for creating the base of the line-up for this year’s jubilee, the 5th edition. Electro-punk giants The Prodigy were the #1 headliners of Sea Star in 2017, and in 2023 they return as part of the most requested world tour.

Sea Star fans will come to Umag from over 35 countries scattered across several continents. Aside from local fans, there are lots of people from Slovenia, Italy, Germany, Austria, the Netherlands, the UK, Belgium, Spain, the Czech Republic, Slovakia, Hungary, Scandinavia, and the region, but tickets were also sold in the USA, Canada, Brazil, the UAE, Israel, Egypt, Australia, New Zealand, as well as Thailand. The accommodation capacity is also quickly running out. At the official festival website, visitors can still book their spots in the festival camp, accommodation in the Polynesia and Katoro properties, and rooms in the Residence Garden Istra hotel, with prices starting at Є10 per person per night.

The fifth edition of Sea Star, which will kick off the festival and summer season, brings a super strong line-up to the Stella Maris lagoon in Umag on the 19th and 20th of May. On Friday, the program is headlined by world leading hitmaker Robin Schulz, along with chart-topping producer Mahmut Orhan, trap heroes Senidah and Hiljson Mandela, excellent b2b sets by Daria Kolosova & Etapp Kyle, Marko Nastić & Dejan Miličević and DJ Jock & Shipe and the crew on the Electric Waves stage, spearheaded by Ilija Rudman. On Saturday, the Tesla Main Stage will welcome electro-punk giants The Prodigy, techno superstar Indira Paganotto, and the best of regional trap, including Krankšvester, Grše, 30Zona, Fox & Surreal, Ružno pače, Podočnjaci, Miach, Micka Lifa, TTM, Masayah and Thicc Boi, as well as the Electric Waves line-up led by Ian F and Marcelo. 

With the formation of the daily line-ups, begins the sales of single-day tickets, starting 21st March at noon, with a limited number of single-day tickets at €39+bf.
