Outlook Festival, which takes over the small seaside city of Pula in beautiful Croatia each summer, is noted as Europe's leading bass music and sound system culture festival. But for those who have waded into the crystal jellyfish-infested waters of the Adriatic sea in the day, while riddims play from the beach-front stage or masked up to enter the dusty ruins of Fort Punta Christo at night, for pulsating drum and bass or electric grime, it's so much more than that. It's an unmatched planet all its own, where music history is made within the moats of 18th century stone and a 2000-year-old Roman coliseum. And all we want is to be back.

This year, the authentic festival, which has been hailed for securing some of the biggest names in house, reggae, dub, hip-hop, garage, grime and electronica, is celebrating its 10-year anniversary. And to mark the milestone, they've rolled out a line-up to match it. Those who take the musical pilgrimage to Croatia from September 6-10 this year, will experience the likes of Wiley, Dizzee Rascal, Giggs, AJ Tracey, DJ Shadow, Newham Generals and more in a setting like no other.

So, we asked a few of our favourite MCs on the list what we should expect and what they're also looking forward to.

Capo Lee

What to expect: You can expect a high energy show, performing new tracks from my joint EP with Spyro with a mix of the tunes which cemented my position in the grime scene, (Liff and Mud.) I may also perform a few exclusives, never been heard. Since it is Outlook, we have to make it special.

What I'm looking forward to: There is way too many great artists to name one, from dizzee to wiley to giggs, I've seen wiley and giggs before but it will be the first time seeing dizzee live which I think will be an amazing moment for me growing up listening to him.

Bugzy Malone

What to expect: Outlook festival will be a special night, it's gonna go off!!! All I can say is that you better get there early to avoid disappointment.

What I'm looking forward to: There's no one artist, as the line-up is siiiick and has loads of great artists to pick from. There's a great mix of legends and newbies, so it's definitely not a festival to be missed.

Killa P

What to expect: Expect a bad boy performance - yard man style.

What I'm looking forward to: Giggs.

Big Zuu

What to expect: What you can expect from me is an energy filled set with a variety of music and a real good time haha. I can't wait to get there and pull out the swimming trunks and meet all the supporters and just have a sick experience.

Who I'm looking forward to: I'm excited to see Giggs 100%. He's the style master.


What to expect: Got a new set, with LOADS of fire & energy and some new tracks to perform at Outlook.
