Gates of Agartha is a two day odyssey to the historic region of Istria, Croatia which blends the past and the present and offers a glimpse into its rich history and vibrant culture. It comes from brothers Yaaz and Yalim Acar, the people behind the Echoes From Agartha experience in Cappadocia, Turkey, and local driving force BSH events which specialises in hosting events at unique venues around Croatia and the region. It takes place in Cave Romane, an ancient quarry dating back to Roman times that played a crucial role in the construction of the Pula Arena under Emperor Vespasian’s command.

Carved into 50-metre limestone walls and nestled in the small village of Vinkuran, it stands as a reminder of ancient craftsmanship and the architectural legacy of the Roman Empire. Legend has it that Cave Romane was a sacred place for ancient tribes and mystical beings which resonates with the broader tapestry of myths surrounding Istria’s enchanting reputation as ‘Terra Magica.’

The breathtaking cave will come alive with a bespoke projection mapping show in collaboration with the cutting-edge media collective OUCHHH that will make it an immersive and wondrous place to dance to world class music as 4000 people attend. As well as the music, there is plenty of local culture to explore from ancient architecture in the historic Roman city to the bustling modern day market places, local cuisines and so much more.

New for this year, Gates of Agartha introduces exclusive experience packages to enhance attendees’ festival journey. This improved program offers a luxurious stay at the Pula Brioni Hotel where guests can indulge in world-class amenities and breathtaking views of the Adriatic Sea. Exclusive to full experience package holders, a special pre-party will be held at the historic Pula Castle on Thursday, providing a unique opportunity to immerse oneself in the city’s rich cultural heritage.

Gates of Agartha offers a mystical journey to an ancient realm, accompanied by a contemporary soundtrack from the cutting edge of melodic house and techno.
