Last week Dimensions released their ridiculously dreamy 2014 highlights film, which nicely coincided with a week of sub-zero’s in Berlin. URGH FERNWEH. Add to that an onslaught of end of year lists, and we’ve been left feeling super nostalgic about the highlights of 2014 – which when talking festivals, Dimensions was (once again) right up on top. With all of that, we thought it was (finally) time we took another trip back to paradise and threw some more dreamy snaps from Dimensions Festival the internet’s way.
Back in late August we sent Bron (that’s me, hihi!) to Pula for 2014’s edition of Dimensions Festival – a five day affair of electronic music bliss on the coastline of Croatia. With both an incredible line-up (my highlights were many and included Nils Frahm, Caribou, Mala, Jon Hopkins, Motor City Drum Ensemble, Roy Ayers, Move D, ItaloJohnson, Pangaea, Jessy Lanza & DJ Stingray) and unique location (a 150-year old fort, 2,000 year old amphitheatre and the Adriatic sea) it’s not hard to see why this festival continues to be such a treat, and a highlight of the European festival season.
We’ve covered the festival pretty extensively in the past (get all over that over here), so this year we wanted to mix things up and try to capture Dimensions from not only our perspective, but from people attending the festival in different capacities.
So we gave out five disposable cameras – to a volunteer, journalist, agent, festival partner and punter – some returning for the third time, some here for the first, and asked them to go nuts, taking snaps of whatever came their way. The results were a mix of dreamy beach and boat pics, messy selfies, candid shots of friends (which are remaining in private collections – sorry all), animals (really), the happy sexy crowd and mid-and-post Sunday storm (yep – apocalyptic storms are a very real thing in Croatia).
Following on from Part 1 in October, below is Part 2 of the results. This round – less chat, more pics.
Everybody loves the sunshine.

Hihi – if you’ve ever stumbled across the site before you might know me. Based in the German capital, I like to use words like “vibes” and “feelings” to talk about events and festivals for Lucy vs. the Globe. This was my third time at Dimensions – and the best yet.
