SunSplash Festival – Bodrum Turkey

SunSplash. The festival that promises a enormously welcoming crowd, an incredible beachfront setting and a idyllic week of Sun, Sea, and Legendary Dance Music!

Embracing all the splendour of the Turkish Mediterranean, the festival’s dazzling new home, and Aspat Beach stays honest to the philosophy of SunSplash. Aspat Beach features a gigantic private palm fringed beach, a tropical style beach bar, a natural creek shaded by enormous eucalyptus trees, beach bungalow accommodation, historic ruins protected by the gracious Aspat Mountain, with a stunning view across the Turkish Mediterranean. With wind sports, yoga zone, outdoor workshops and more. What more could you want?

SunSplash founder Serkan Cetin says: “Our new venue takes us back to nature, a picturesque creek shaded by giant eucalyptus trees, a truly breathtaking bay with a fantastic beach and all overlooked by the spiritual presence of Aspat Mount, our music mountain!’

SunSplash Festival 2014 resident Phil Asher says he loves “The People, the setting, the Artist’s 7 dj’s that perform, the Turkish food & Hospitality, Zaf’s one Liners and most of all the Smiles. It’s very Intimate, Everybody eats & Dances together, a strong sense of communion is there from day one. It’s in bodrum & it’s run by the Amazing Serkan” This year you can expect him to give you “Dance Friendly Soul inspiring Sunshine Vibes – Deep House, Disco, Boogie, Dub, Soul Funk & Smiles”.

Artists performing include: Osunlade, Zara McFarlane, Gilles Peterson, Karizma, Mark de Clive-Low, William Adamson, Rainer Truby, Manesseh, Patrick Forge and Phil Asher.

The legend that is Rainier Truby says “I have seen quite a lot of festivals in my DJ career, but Sunsplash is definitely my favourite one. First of all the musical programmation is simply outstanding. Secondly the locations on the turkish coastline are beautiful. And as it´s not too big you can be sure to become part of a musical family of friends. Well-done Serkan for making this happen and we can look forward to plenty of good music and a few diverse sets in different settings”
