DK Festival is recognized as one of the best events in the world by the British Association Excellence Awards for its out-of-the-box approach, unique program, provocative production and top-notch organization.
All year round we scour the world for the people who reshape the industry. Only the most interesting makers will have a chance to take the round stage in Lone and explain – what the fuck is going on in the world of communications.
Three days, the best makers, no insignificant lectures, no bullshit.
Our speakers don’t talk about trends. They create them. Every year we think of new ways to give you something a bit different. Watching talks from the pool, taking sunrise or sunset yoga classes on the coast, partying all night long or just enjoying the Mediterranean sun while living the Croatian dream — drinking coffee while watching the livestream of the talks — you name it, we had it. And if you were wondering — yes, we are preparing some really amazing stuff this year as well.
Considering how some of the world’s greatest industry experts became members of our community, including Sir Martin Sorrell, the man behind the WPP empire, Susan Credle, a creative powerhouse, Jayanta Jenkins, Global Head of Creative for Twitter, iPhone’s Siri or even the notorious Peter Sunde who co-founded The Pirate Bay, maybe you want to ask yourself if you will join us too. But, we’re sure you have better things to do, right?
NOT YOUR TYPICAL FESTIVAL
We are not here to talk about transformation, proactivity and interaction – and we surely will not try to persuade you that market communications cannot be deceiving. Let’s head towards innovative thinking and creating today so tomorrow we can make a change together. So… Fuck advertising. Love advertising. Fuck PR. Love PR. Fuck technology. Love technology. Fuck CEO. Love CEO. @ DK2023.
