Described as “magical” by the visitors that enjoyed #WELOVESOUND OPEN AIR last year, this year’s edition on the 2nd of June at big Jarun lake in Zagreb was just stunning. Ricardo Villalobos, The Martinez Brothers, Sonja Moonear, Jackmaster, and local support Mariano Mateljan, Andrea Ljekaj & Slaven Tušek Pips made magic that night. Thank you all for dancing and spreading such an amazing energy! Rain couldn’t touch us <3
