Fort Punta Christo

Built in the mid-eighteen hundreds, Punta Christo was one of over a dozen forts situated on different peninsulas surrounding the city of Pula. At the time Pula was one of the biggest ports in Europe and these forts were built to keep the city secure. They were all linked by a network of underground tunnels, many of which run directly under the seabed. Locals have informed us that some of these tunnels still exist today, although many have collapsed.

Since then the fort has fallen into complete disrepair, completely collapsed in some places and overgrown in others. In the UK this place would be a National Heritage Site and there wouldn’t be the chance of holding a festival of any kind within its walls. But we’re not in the UK and so we have the chance to create a festival venue unlike one you have ever seen. Imagine something out of The Lost World mixed with a bit of Tomb Raider, except there’s no buried treasure, just lots and lots of bass!
