A day-by-day look at Sonus' magic (Festival Review)
Sonus has become an underground jewel of sorts of the Croatian festival scene within just five years of operation. This notion was evidenced physically by the thousands of partygoers flooded into the surrounding town of Novalja as the festival commenced its milestone fifth anniversary celebrations at the nearby Zrce Beach.
Over its tenure, Sonus’ following has grown immensely, with new attendance records broken each year. This just-past edition saw a record broken in terms of nationalities making the pilgrimage to their techno paradise — a record 65 in total. Of course, the continual success of the festival is hardly a surprise; organized largely in part by Time Warp, it has a proven track record of providing a premier dance music experience to its guests whose artistic caliber is matched by the natural beauty that can be seen by the festival’s beachside clubs.

Organizers worked hard to curate a well-rounded lineup which combined plenty of prolific names with those that are lesser-known. Regardless of stature, each of the 70+ artists brought their A-game to the table, making for an unforgettable five days of non-stop house & techno.
The task of naming a few select acts above the rest was daunting to say the least, but alas, the time has come to Dancing Astronaut top sets of Sonus 2017.
