After two seafaring events together, Drumcode and Yacht Week have announced their farewell collaboration.
In 2022, Adam Beyer‘s world-famous techno imprint, Drumcode, set sail on a voyage across the Adriatic sea in partnership with event organizer Yacht Week. After a follow-up sailing this spring, they have made the difficult decision that next year will mark their last. Drumcode x Yacht Week 2024 will run from June 1-7 and make various stops across the coast of Croatia.
“Wake up, explore & party in a different location each day,” reads text handwritten on an official flyer. The event promises dancing “in fortresses and on our famous raft parties,” as well as on famous Croatian islands and venues. Also included are yoga sessions, hikes, specially prepared meals, and joyrides in convertibles.
Of course, a who’s who of the Drumcode milieu will also be present. Beyer himself heads up the voyage, and joining him are artists like Tini Gessler, Eli Brown, Miss Monique, and Joel Mull. Part of the appeal is that attendees can expect to mingle alongside the talent at various points throughout the experience.
Adam Beyer launched Drumcode in 1996. Initially a bastion for the cold, hard, brutalist end of the techno spectrum, it has come to adopt a more populist approach over the years that has cemented it as the highest-selling techno label on Beatport. Artists like Alan Fitzpatrick, Nicole Moudaber, Amelie Lens, and Green Velvet are among its ever-growing roster.
In 2006, a group of college friends formed Yacht Week, initially as Sailin’ Croatia, on a whim. The concept gained traction organically on Facebook and quickly grew to include sailings in Greece, Norway, Turkey, and the UK. Yacht Week has partnered with dance music brands like Ministry of Sound, Mixmag, and Hot Creations.
The third and final Drumcode x Yacht Week sets sail June 1-7, 2024. Purchase tickets and find additional information on the Yacht Week website.
