An Electronic Beat in the Heat
In order to maximize the experience of every genre and to blend it with its outstanding surroundings, the festival is split on four stages distributed over the clubs, Kalypso, Papaya and Aquarius 1 and 2. These are all open-air clubs, serving during the day as the venue for the chill sound parties by the poolside where the light refreshing Mediterranean breeze blows visitors’ mind in the heating sun. Over the evening and night, the venues transform into the best clubbing locations in the town, offering its guests a unique performance under the starry sky. Papaya, the main stage of the festival, is located furthest down the beach, offering a beautiful vista of the sea and its surroundings. Aquarius 1 is another big stage of the festival, offering the performance of major artists, while Aquarius 2 is a smaller version of Aquarius 1 where festival-goers may enjoy the music in a more private setting. Located opposite of the previously mentioned clubs, Kalypso and its wooden deck serve as a sort of the chill out zone of the festival during the day, where the visitors can take time to recover from the madness of the night before, while at night it becomes a rave club. In addition to these clubs, the entire town is utilized to host the other festival activities.

This is what Hideout Festival offers to its visitors: a tuning perfection of electronic sound echoing in the sea of festival attendees who chill to the dance beat.
