- Membrain Festival, from its beginning, has the goal of promoting the domestic electronic scene, its authors, DJs, labels, promoters and organizers. Likewise, Membrain perfectly combines the best of

independent bass music from European capitals (London, Amsterdam, Berlin) with Mediterranean

climate and experience unique only for the Croatian coast. We hope that this summer Šibenik will become a real little paradise for all festival fans - share Davor Dedić and Igor Bergam, the core Membrain team.

Cape and camp Martinska last summer functioned as a covid-free zone and was one of the few

festival locations on the Adriatic. In the two months of the season, a series of music events and festivals took place which have adapted to all epidemiological recommendations and, albeit in somewhat smaller capacities, provided an excellent music program.

Tickets for the sixth edition of the Membrain Festival are sold through the Entrio system and cost from 140kn for one day and 300kn for all days of the festival.

Membrain Festival is realized through the Šibenik PARK organization, a longtime player in the local

cultural scene, which during the decade of active work in Šibenik hosted over 150 performers from

Croatia, Europe and the world and launched recognizable music brands Kulturaljka, Regius Festival, Membrain Festival and a series of rock concerts on the island of Murter - More Rock 'n Rolla on the Coast.
