Set in Fort Punta Christo, first built by the Austrians in the 1900’s, the ex-military grounds of Outlook festival now possess quite possibly the greatest artillery of sound systems in Europe.
The festival's first evening undoubtedly belongs to headliners Fat Freddie’s Drop. Their performance on the main stage is laced with immaculate musical breakdowns, epic solos, stage presence and soul. Dancehall collective Heatwave and garage Don Sticky inject more tempo as they breeze through tracks that seem to carry the same vibe dust from last week's Notting Hill Carnival.
Since Outlook festival first emerged in 2008 it has guaranteed four things: boat parties, vibes, great sound-systems and sunshine. Three and half out of four isn’t bad, and as Fat Freddie’s Drop predicted during their perfect rendition of ‘Cay’s Crays’, the rain did in fact come down while the sun was shining; the first rain Croatia has seen in months.
Lesson number one in roots and culture begins on Friday evening with Iration Steppas. The dubists are accompanied by a host of fellow artists and handful of toasters (MC’s) that help put the idea of banning MC’s to shame. One after another they provide a unique flow and energy as they tell tales of Haile Salassie and the lion of Judah.
Scuba churns out the techno in the main fort arena before being followed by George Fitzgerald who provides one of the highlights of the festival as he drops DJ Assassin's ‘A Face in the Crowd’.
The rain begins to ease during the final day and the sun finally starts to take away those inconveniently located puddles that have been taking up valuable skanking positions.
Outlook is a festival that continually brings the communities of dub, hip-hop, drum ‘n’ bass and dubstep together. Their mission is clear, to provide an unparalleled education in bass music culture within a festival site like no other.
