How to get there?


By Car

The island is reachable from Posedarje on the mainland via Pag Bridge,

If you are travelling to the island of Pag from Zadar and points south, the island is reachable from Posedarje on the mainland via Pag Bridge, which takes visitors to the island’s south end. Jadrolinija ferries make hourly runs from mainland port Prizna to port Zigljen on the island’s north end, depositing visitors about 4.8 km (3 miles) from Novalja.

When demand is high during peak season, the ferries often throw out their schedules and leave port as soon as they are full. A one-way ferry ride for a car with two people costs about 100kn (around 13€).


By Plane

Flying is the most comfortable and the fastest way to get to the festival.

The airports of Zadar, Split and Rijeka are the closest to the Island. The nearest airport is Zadar Airport, located 85km away from Novalja and has destinations across much of Europe, other airports are listed below:

Zadar Airport – 85km
Split Airport – 185km
Zagreb Airport – 230km


By Bus

There are several bus lines organized.

To make your trip easier we organised several bus lines connecting airports and cities to the festival.

Also we provide shuttle buses that run the 24h of the festival to ensure you get to your accommodation. You can book your transfers and shuttles with us, check the bookings to see prices and availability.
