General Info

What is the Electric Elephant x Obonjan collaboration about?

For 2017 Electric Elephant Festival has formed a collaborative partnership with Obonjan Island. This year customers can enjoy incredible DJs and live acts programmed by Electric Elephant and Obonjan, as well as a wide and varied creative programme thats runs throughout the season. This year customers are invited to book accommodation on the island via the Electric Elephant website, which in turn gives them access to all venues on the island and the music & creative programme across the 4 day and 4 nights.

What is Obonjan?

Obonjan is a private island in Croatia and a truly unique destination. It’s a mixture of wellbeing and recovery, DJs and live music, tempting food and drink, comedy, cinema, talks and workshops, art and installations, sports, and boutique retail. If all of this stimulation gets too much, you can always dive into the Adriatic Sea, take a snooze beneath the pines or hideaway to watch the sunset. With secretive coves to explore and winding paths that lead to tranquil, sun-kissed clearings, the island has a distinctly easy-going atmosphere.

How old do I have to be to attend?

Customers must be over 18 years old.

How much is my Electric Elephant x Obonjan?

This year customers will only have to pay the cost of their accommodation. This gives you access to all the venues over the 4 days and 4 nights. As well as enjoying the Electric Elephant programme guests can enjoy the other island experiences such as Yoga, Wellbeing, Food and Drink, Artist Talks & Q&A’s, Art and much much more!

Can I make a camp-fire or BBQ?

No. Obonjan is densely wooded and the land can become very dry in the heat. Add to that a sea breeze, and an open fire could very quickly spread out of control. Please do not light any fires and if you see someone doing so, ask them to extinguish it immediately. Similarly for smokers, there’s no smoking in your accommodation, any buildings and restaurant terraces. Please be considerate of others and dispose of spent cigarettes in ashtrays.

Electric Elephant acts solely as an agent of Obonjan so please refer to their T&C’s for information on refunds Here
