A beautiful cleared area just slightly away from the hustle of the fort, whilst still being able to soak up the beats and bass. Come sit for a while, make new friends – and then head back in when you’re feet are rested enough!
Set in the heart of the peninsular midway between the campsite, the fort and the harbour sits a glade in the forest with an immense sound system and enough room for 3000 dancing bodies.
The clearing was a brand new stage at Outlook in 2012 but quickly became a firm favourite with people due to its atmosphere a musical programming.
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.
Since its inception, in the bay of Petrcane, an inspiring addition to the normal festival experience has been the infamous Boat Parties at Outlook Festival. Set sail on the party boat with DJs, MCs, a fully stocked bar and a belting soundsystem.
Located on the festival campsite, just a few hundred metres down the coast from the Fort – is the Beach; the venue for most of the daytime activities. Beach parties pushing strictly sunshine-soaked sounds take place every day from midday until sunset when the party will move up to the Fort.
Ever since we first laid eyes on the Fort we hatched a plan to one day take over the moat and adapt it into the long stretching venue it is now.
After a lengthy excavation, this amazing area proved to be one of our most impressive arenas in 2011.
The main entrance into the Fort brings you into a 350 capacity courtyard. Its openness and intimacy allows for a perfect chilled-out vibe with the stars above and a warm sound reverberating off the walls.
Being right at the heart of the fort, people constantly stumble across some of the happiest vibes at the festival here.
In a clearing just outside the walls of the fort, this lovely green area has all the hallmarks of a ‘normal’ festival stage. That may have been the case until we turned on the sound system and rolled out the line-up.
At almost 1000 capacity this arena has always proved extremely popular and provides a great platform for a broad range of artists from across the bass music spectrum.
A circular pit with a Soundsystem in it – simple. The highlight of the past two festival’s for many people, this arena truly represents a lot of what many love about Outlook.
While the pressure of the system mounts with every drop it is easy to forget where you are as you get absorbed in the crumbling walls of the 18th Century fort.
This perfectly sized 1200 capacity open air arena is home to the epic Mungos Hifi Soundsystem and plays host to some of the most atmospheric showcases of the festival. It was only shortly before the 2010 festival that this area had been cleared of the tonnes of soil and vegetation that once ruled areas of this fort.
A new edition for 2011, the Harbour Arena is the biggest step-up in production to date, with a world-class soundsystem, stage and light show. Housing the Festival’s live acts and headline artists the Harbour Arena provides the ideal setting for this year’s musical centrepiece.
Boasting idyllic views across the water to the bay of Pula, you’ll hear the rumble of the Fort stages in the background as you dance from sunset to sunrise.
As you walk up the path to the fort, through the festival entrance and closer to the ground-shaking sounds, you are first met by the 20 ft walls that encase the Fort Arena.
A long dark tunnel that curves round on it itself is the perfect place for the more upbeat rave sets that Outlook accommodates. The shape of the venue funnels the sound from the two central stacks to create an epic sound at every inch of the room.
