Ancient Roman quarry in Pula to host inaugural edition of Gates of Agartha
Gates of Agartha
Cave Romane, Pula, Croatia
June 23 - 24th, 2023
Gates of Agartha is a two day odyssey to the city of Pula and Vinkuran, Croatia which blends the past and the present and offers a glimpse into its rich history and vibrant culture. It takes place in Cave Romane, a historic Roman quarry, from June 23rd - 24th, 2023 with Marco Carola, Damian Lazarus, Dennis Cruz, Chris Stussy, Echonomist, Pablo Panda, The Ace Brothers and a special guest to be announced, all heading up what will be a truly spine tingling event.
Gates of Agartha comes from the same people behind the wondrous Echoes from Agartha experience in Cappadocia, Turkey. It is the first of their new destination series events which explore mystical and mythical places around the world where art, culture and history collide.
This debut Croatian event is in partnership with local promoters BSH Events who are renowned in Croatia for their out of the box approach to unique venues. And they don't come more unique than Cave Romane, a roman quarry near the city centre that was used for centuries by the Romans to extract a type of stone called Istrian limestone, which was highly valued for its quality and was used in the construction of many important buildings in the Roman Empire, including the Colosseum in Rome.
The extraordinary venue is literally carved from rock and will be lit up with immersive and cutting edge lighting technology as well as world class sounds systems. 4000 people will attend the two days with 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.
The cultured lineup offers up Crosstown Rebels boss Damian Lazarus, classy tech house from Italian titan Marco Carola, new school Dutch house star Chris Stussy, Spanish hit maker Dennis Cruz, Greek mainstay Echonomist, plus more from Pablo Panda and The Ace Brothers.
This is a magical escape to an ancient world but with a contemporary soundtrack from the very sharp end of the melodic house and techno spectrum. Tickets available here.
