Surely the most unique festival this summer in Croatia is the "Nothing 2012 Festival", a festival where nothing happens, and nobody turns up. "Nothing 2012" was (not) held yesterday (Thurs) in Preko on the island of Ugljan, reported daily newspaper Jutarnji list.
Preparations for the festival on the island, which is located in the Zadar Archipelago, began in the middle of August, when the event organiser Jerko Gregov formed a group on Facebook and began to report that the festival would not feature Croatian musicians Miso Kovac or Severina, nor international stars Jay Z., J. Lo or Jay Kay. Gregov also announced that there would not be any fireworks, or diving competitions.
"After Preko successfully demonstrated the concept of: noise + meat = a good festival, it was time to embark on a new project and new ideas, that is why we are proud to announce that 23 August in Preko we are organising Nothing. There will be nothing on the night," said the message, inviting tourists and locals to "Come and enjoy in nothing".
