The list of dynamic events on Rab to mark the 120th anniversary of tourism on the island has been enriched with something completely new: The Rab Summer Festival, which is scheduled to start this August…

The Rab Summer Festival will take place in the town of Rab on the 6th and 7th of August. The organiser of the event, the Top Promocija Company, and its major sponsors, the Town of Rab and the Rab Tourism Office, expect this festival to attract many visitors who will be staying on this Kvarner island during that period. In the evening of the 6th of August there will be a ceremony of making the world’s largest cocktail on the central town square of St. Christopher. The Town Stadium will host a party starting at 10 p.m. with famous DJs; the ticket for this party will include a glass of the world’s largest cocktail. At 10 p.m. of the next day there will be several concerts on the Town Stadium: Cubismo feat Buena Vista Social Club & Afro Cuban All Stars Guest, then Chico Castillo from the Gipsy Kings Band, and finally Nina Badrić, a famous Croatian pop singer. Those who would like to attend all programmes within the Rab Summer Festival can buy a two-day ticket at a promotional price of 23 euros per person.
