CIF 2022 - Lineup - Simon M

The Crazy Island Festival was first planned for 2020. The year of the greatest challenges. Since challenges are something we like, we are happy to introduce you to the artists with whom we have something in common. Simon M, welcome to the Crazy Island Festival.

Wicked parties

1. So, Simon M, you have been known for years as a synonym for wicked parties in Varaždin downtown. In recent years, you present yourself as a dj at music festivals. What is the difference on the dance floor?

Well, the difference is quite big. Given the large filtration of people in the clubs the whole evening has its own flow. From the beginning of the evening until the end. Thats why music is mixed in the way there is always some “moving”, to create a good atmosphere for the crowd. On the other hand, at festivals, in that hour and a half, you present yourself and give the audience the “peak of the evening”, because at festivals the audience is targeted to dance well and have fun.


2. Is your music different when you play in a smaller club and at a bigger festival?

Well, the music is different in the sense that in a smaller club it is more based on some “mashup”, where there are all kinds and genres. Thats why there is something for everyone, and yet that it is incorporated into one whole to sound good in the end. At the festivals, however, the atmosphere is more intense, and the music is such that the audience is dancing all the time.


3. We see you spreading a good vibe with your music outside county borders. What are the music tastes outside the county?

Well, the tastes are quite similar. A good atmosphere is important for everyone to have a good time. In my set, during the evening there is something for everyone.


With you on board a wicked party is guaranteed. Do you have a message for our crazy dancers?

Yes, I do. I invite all dancers and people who want to have a good time to come to the Crazy Island festival. To dance well and to have fun because behind the whole festival is a good story and great organization.

CIF Lineup 2022. - Johnny Costa

Johnny Costa is one of the guys we will be extremely pleased to present at this year’s Crazy Island Festival. To give you a better idea of ​​the caliber of the young man here, we have prepared a few questions.

1. Ivan, hello, welcome to madness. We booked you 2 years ago when the covid situation postponed the event. How did you spend that period? Do you have any music surprises ?


Thanks for the welcome, the pleasure is all mine!

Yes, I was booked 2 years ago but unfortunately the Covid situation screwed us up like many others. That is why this year we are going even stronger and crazier!

Well I spent the covid situation working, I had a few performances, nothing too much because of the measures that were and honestly I really miss the stage.

I decided that I will still leave the music surprises for the stage. To be a real surprise 

2. We are glad that you continued to nurture your music career in a special way. Please tell us what event in your life prompted you to start making music?

Wellll, I started playing music when the first Ultra Europe came to Split. My biggest role model and inspiration was Hardwell who also returned to the scene after a long time.

3. From all the events you performed at, we know that there were many outside country borders. Which event would you single out as the one that stuck in your memory the best?

I have performed at many events, from Croatia, Slovenia, the Czech Republic… It is difficult to single out the best because each is special in its own way and I always do my best for the audience to enjoy.

But if one could separate, it would be a performance in Slovenia. Great party, top organization and definitely one of those parties you remember.

4. And finally, we see that we are driven into madness by a very distinctive person. Tell us please, what are you preparing for 30.07. ?

I am preparing a lot of things, both newer and older, to bring back that spirit of the former parties after this quarantine that caught us.

I will leave the details for the performance though!

See you and I can’t wait!
