Set in an abandoned 19th-century fort nestled over the Adriatic sea, with daytime beach sessions and countless boat parties, Outlook is a perfect combination of a quality music festival and a holiday, soaking up the Croatian sunshine. - About Jack Sparrow: Ryan Wild AKA Jack Sparrow has been producing his own strain of dubstep since 2006 and in that time has shown his versatility in the studio ranging from dark tribal Techno to heavy "sound system" dubstep styles. With residencies at Exodus / Dmz Leeds and Outlook Festival, he has fast become a household name all over the globe regularly touring Asia, Europe and UK with his take on Dubstep. His Debut album "Circadian" followed a string of releases with Pinch's tectonic label based in Bristol and achieved a 4.5 stars from the like of Resident Advisor (4.5 stars) and Mixmag (4 stars) and also charting highly in the best albums of 2010. Jack Sparrow has also shown his versatility by remixing for many names and labels including Skepta (3Beat), Count and Sinden (Domino), Birdy (Atlantic), XXXY (Pollen), Mumdance (Mad Decent), Photek (Tectonic) and RSS (Wall Of Sound) amongst others. Jack has also worked closely with Loopmasters in 2015 to develop sample packs for other producers to use within dubstep productions. He is also 1 half of production duo "Author" (Tectonic) who released their debut album in November 2011 and second album in 2014 which sees a musical take on Dubstep. J.Sparrow and Ruckspin have been touring globally the Author live show to sold-out events with great reception. Future projects include another follow-up Jack Sparrow album and Author album, tours across the USA, Asia and Europe for 2018 and work on releases for his label Navy Cut. https://www.facebook.com/JackSparrowDubstep/ https://soundcloud.com/j-sparrow/ - About Dimensions Soundsystem: With a collective experience that’s seen them take the reins on some of the most respected dancefloors at the likes of Sub Club, Southport Weekender, Fabric, Corsica Studios and Sankey’s as well as across Europe and North America, Dimensions Soundsystem offer continuity and a true understanding of what the beloved festival is all about. The collective of David Martin, Andy Lemay and Simon Scott are intrinsically linked to Dimensions Festival’s very foundations.
