Ministry Of Sound has remained at the forefront of electronic music for over 27 years and is synonymous worldwide with unrivalled clubbing. There’s no better brand for The Yacht Week to link up with to showcase a new clubbing experience such as ‘The Buzz’. Ministry Of Sound will bring decades of party know-how and of course, two DJs who really know how to please a crowd.

Monki rose through the ranks of Rinse FM, to a weekly slot on BBC Radio 1Xtra and then to her own residency on BBC Radio 1. Recognised as an influential selector and bonafide party-starter, Monki’s innate DJ skills bring together a unique mix of classic tracks and newly unearthed jams, ensuring she is always in high demand. She has provided a mix for the coveted Fabric Live CD series, runs her own label and curates her own night, Monki & Friends. Monki is a versatile, talented DJ with a deep passion for music; a perfect choice to skipper the sounds on ‘The Buzz’ (performing in week 34 on 19th August).

Hailing from Merseyside, Melé is a hugely respected DJ and producer, underlined by his recent invite to take over the esteemed BBC Radio 1 Essential Mix. His ability to mix party-fuelled anthems with underground cuts has seen him in demand, touring the world, tearing up clubs and festivals including Elrow, Barcelona and Gilles Peterson’s Worldwide Festival. He delivered an ‘In The House’ compilation, one of the Defected Records legendary series, and boasts a sound all of his own, meshing world music-influenced house, transatlantic hiphop, broader UK sounds and classic Chicago grooves. ‘The Buzz’ will be aptly named when Melé comes aboard (performing in week 33 on 12th August).

Alongside the unique vibes of ‘The Buzz’, party people who join The Yacht Week can enjoy more big nights and underground events when they dock, in conjunction with some of Croatia’s best venues and clubs. The Croatia Ultra Festival Route also includes tickets to Ultra Festival for those with serious stamina. And when the nightlife takes a break, The Yacht Week lets guests recover with programming that includes seaside yoga, snorkelling in secluded bays, the freshest food, beach lounge relaxation and much more.

The Yacht Week has been a yearly event since 2006, the original floating festival, and continues to bring people together for a unique travel experience, set in six destinations around the world. Now, The Yacht Week joins forces with Ministry Of Sound and prepares to elevate the Croatia clubbing experience to new heights.
