The InMusic Festival (stylized as 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,[2] and it made the CNN's 2013 list of 50 greatest summer music festivals in the world.[3]

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.[4]


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.[5]


Third edition, also titled "Vip INmusic", was held 3–4 June 2008 at Jarun.[6]


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.[7]


Fifth edition was held 21–23 June 2010 at Jarun.[8]


The festival's sixth edition was held 21–22 June 2011.[9]


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.[10] INmusic festival was selected in the Top 50 World's best music festivals according to CNN International.


The festival's eighth edition was held from 24th till 26 June 2013.


Ninth edition was held from 23rd till 25 June 2014. Festival got even bigger by expanding its camp on the neighboring Island of Trešnjevka which was connected to the Island of Croatian Youth by a 100 meters long pontoon bridge.
