The Annual Fresh Wave Festival is an electronic music festival held annually in the city of Banja Luka, Bosnia and Herzegovina. Held on the banks of the Vrbas river within the city’s fortress, enthusiasts flock to this unique event to witness world-renowned DJs and their electrifying performances. The line-up beside the biggest DJ names in the world includes immense local and international talent and the atmosphere is nothing short of euphoric. Fresh Wave Festival has risen from a sketch on paper to an recognized and acclaimed event. Last summer celebrating 10 years of existing, festival hosted the biggest world’s and regional music artists as it was a case in past years. Our story started as a dream to bring people from all around the world on one of the oldest fortress in Balkan’s. Kastel Fortress becomes a place where we celebrate power of music and love together.
Wave after wave we were able to bring people from more than thirty world countries so far. On several festivals stages we held performances of the worlds most famous artists. Now thanks to Fresh Wave fans our dream is still on and our story is more alive than ever!
