This event has been and gone.
Dimensions Festival is a Croatian underground dance music festival inside Pula's incredible Fort Punta Christo, bringing together a leftfield electronic music lineup inside one of Europe's most unique festival settings.
The last edition's lineup included stunning sets from Kraftwerk, Bonobo and the electric Helena Hauff inside some of the 19th century fort's most enigmatic spaces, including its moat, as well as on beaches and boats on the beautiful Adriatic sea.
Curating a carefully selected programme that spans house, techno, disco, funk, soul and drum and bass, Dimensions is a haven for the perceptive electronic music fan. It's a place to experience flavours from Detroit, from Berlin, from Chicago and from London, all on the shores of one of the continent's most serene locations.
Dimensions have also announced that this summer will be their final year at Fort Punta Christo in Croatia – a site they have called their home for the past ten years. And as attention turns to their final festivals at the now iconic venue, the festival have promised us one of their biggest lineups ever as they bring the curtain down on this latest chapter.

Sadar Bahar jokingly describes his vinyl-buying habit as a "30-year disease, a sickness." Driven by an "unquenchable desire to create one of the best collections ever," he filled his home with records, and once his home was full, he began storing them in his mother's basement. Speaking to Rush Hour last year, Bahar admitted to owning as many as nine copies of a single record. His collection includes plenty of exceedingly rare wax—he once told CDR of a ten-year quest to find a copy of Open Soul by Tomorrow's People. There's also no shortage of other DJs playing music they first heard in a Sadar Bahar set. Theo Parrish, who describes Bahar's DJing as "sick, sick, sick," freely admits to "biting" his selections, while Dego simply calls his sets "ridiculous." Bahar's schooling, like many Chicago DJs of his generation, came from watching Ron Hardy in action at the Music Box. "Every time you went to see Ron Hardy, you'd come away with knowledge and having had a good time," he said to CDR. Years later, he noticed that standards had slipped: many of the city's DJs were shopping at the same record stores and playing the same music. This spurred him to go the opposite route, digging harder and deeper than his contemporaries. It's an approach that has come to define him, and it feeds into Soul In The Hole, the party he runs with Lee Collins. The music played at those vinyl-only parties is a joyous blend of disco, soul and gospel. In 2012, the UK label BBE issued a Soul In The Hole compilation, a killer selection that brought Collins and Bahar's sound to the world.
