INmusic festival is Croatia's biggest international open-air festival. The festival is held annually in June in Zagreb and takes place on Youth Island (Croatian: Otok hrvatske mladeži) in the middle of Zagreb's Lake Jarun.

The festival was started in 2006 and is usually held over two or three days. It includes several genre-specific stages with internationally renowned indie rock, heavy metal and electronica artists. In 2008 The Times included INmusic among the top 20 European summer festivals.[1]

The festival's first edition was held as "INmusic festival" 4–6 July 2006. It was organized by Multikultura, a non-governmental organisation, and held at Šalata.[2]


Second edition was held 27–28 August 2007. The festival acquired sponsorship by Vipnet, a mobile network operator, and was dubbed "Vip INmusic". Also, this was the first edition which took place at Jarun.[3]


Third edition, also titled "Vip INmusic", was held 3–4 June 2008 at Jarun.[4]


For the 2009 edition, held 24–25 June 2009 at Jarun, Vipnet's competitors T-Mobile took over as main sponsors and the festival was renamed "T-Mobile INmusic". Scottish band Franz Ferdinand made their second appearance at the event.[5]

The festival's sixth edition was held 21–22 June 2011.[7]


The festival's seventh edition was held 29–30 June 2012. The festival went back to its original name, "INmusic festival", as T-Mobile withdrew its sponsorship in early 2012.[8] INmusic festival was selected in the Top 50 World's best music festivals according to CNN International.
