The festival is located in the Mrežnica canyon and is completely surrounded by forest. Both the forest and the river is what makes the festival site a part of nature in its most fundamental and untouched form. The festival site is a 15 minute drive from the towns Slunj and Ogulin on each side, a 45 minute drive from the world famous Plitvice Lakes national park, an hour drive away from the capital Zagreb, and an hour and a half from the Adriatic Sea.

[SVIRAJ!JAM stage]

Instead of the usual chill-out stage that is repeated at numerous festivals, we decided to show a different program during the day. SVIRAJ!JAM started in 2019 as an independent weekend vacation organized by renowned professional musicians of the prolific Zagreb music scene.

The jam is led by Erol Zejnilović (ABOP, Elemental, Kries, Marisol), Sara Ercegović (ŽEN) and Luka Čapeta (Mary May, Pastele, Krv u stolici, Duetto Chapetlewsky).

The electronic program of the Bear Stone Festival will bring together DJs whose eclectic sets build a bridge between fat riffs and club bass music. Expect dirty, distorted, experimental and psychedelic electronics that evoke head-banging and dancing.


Babilonska / lilacube / VRH / Kornet are four exquisite souls that will blow minds with special sets leaning towards bass heavy, broken beats, electronic music, rooted in nasty riffs & experimental sounds.


We encourage our visitors who have secured their ticket to arrive the day before as the festival location, camp and car park will be open from Thursday, 30.6. in the afternoon. On that day, there will be a catering offer on site with vinyl DJ surprise sets.


Camping in the designated places around the festival is free and is included in the festival ticket. All camps are equipped with showers and toilets that can be used freely at no charge. The camps open the day before the festival (June 30) and close the day after the festival (July 3). Open fires and generators are strictly forbidden in and around the camp!

Camp A is exclusively intended for visitors who spend the night in tents. Open fires and generators are strictly forbidden in and around the camp!

Parking for vehicles is provided and free and is located within Camp B.

Any additional information or answers to questions will be available from on-site staff.


In order to fully experience the atmosphere and vibe of the Bear Stone Festival, it should be mentioned that there is no mobile phone or Internet signal at the location, i.e. in the canyon where the whole event takes place. In this way, visitors are given the opportunity to completely relax and indulge in this audio-visual stimulus in its entirety.

We remind all visitors to print tickets before entering the festival location or to prepare it in digital form on the screen of their smart devices.
