Mo:Dem Festival – An Unforgettable Psychedelic Experience
Momento Demento, also known as MoDem Festival, is an annual psychedelic music and arts festival, hosted by an international collective by the same name. The festival aims to promote underground psychedelic sounds, combined with cutting edge visuals and unique and experimental art. Taking place in the heart of Croatia each summer, the seven-day event welcomes thousands of local and international visitors for a truly unforgettable experience.
Love. Passion. Commitment.
The Momento Demento collective operates all year round, around the basis of love, passion and commitment. The aim of the festival is not to expand, but to maintain and invest in the quality and content of the event. As there are no sponsors or investors, the permanent team of 25 MoDem employees begins working on the next event as soon as the gates close from the previous. Each year, the number one priority is to break the boundaries of production, both technical and artistic, while maintaining a high level of ecology standards.
A Musical Adventure
MoDem Festival welcomes a wide variety of unique talent to the event each year. More than 180 local and international names gather to perform across three massive stages, spread out amongst nature.
The Hive ‘is not just another festival dance floor’. The unique design incorporates ancient knowledge with modern technologies to create an Interdimensional Landing Platform. Each and every visitor becomes the pilot of their own psychedelic trip, exploring and experiencing the realms of the psychedelic abyss. The Swamp regularly changes in style, but the concept and idea remains each year. The Swamp delivers all the trippy music for your mind and body. Finally, The Seed is a unique and laid-back experience. The stage provides not only a place to dance, but a place to sit, listen and enjoy as well. The music at The Seed can be described as eclectic and delivers a wide range of frequencies, as well as unexpected live jams, performances and more.
An Oasis Of Peace
The festival encourages its visitors to leave the land untouched as it is, as ‘it is an honor and privilege to be surrounded by unspoiled nature’. The festival’s campsite is placed within the canyon, surrounded by a rich variety of flora and fauna. Providing only the basic essentials, MoDem offers visitors an unforgettable camping experience in an oasis of peace. With the main goal of ecological awareness and nature preservation, MoDem Festival allows you to live in harmony with the environment.
