Getting Around

Navigate the island

Festival Shuttle

Use the public transport with our Sonus Festival flat rate.
Don’t be a fool - be better off with a shuttle ticket. The public transport the most comfortable, secure and safe way to travel between Novalja, Gajac and the festival location at Zrce Beach.

Less traffic, more party! The island is pretty small and Zrce Beach in particular offers little space for you to park your car.
Save your money, time & patience! Parking space is very limited, very pricey and charged per hour.
Don't drink and drive! Regular traffic controls will be undertaken by the police - do not take a risk!

Use our special shuttle ticket for the public transport to take a ride whenever and wherever you need to within 7 days.


We strongly recommend to use the Festival Shuttle if you want to travel between Novalja and Zrce or over and above. The island’s traffic system was not built for large festivals so there is just a tiny one-lane street to cope with a huge influx of visitors. Unsurprisingly this resulted in massive traffic jams in the past and you should make sure you avoid this frustrating situation. So please use the shuttle and don't use your car.

If, however, you still want to drive to Novalja downtown by car, you will find plenty of parking sites near the beach promenade. Please note that parking fees might be very pricey.

Public Transport

We strongly recommend to purchase a Festival Shuttle ticket! This allows you to use the shuttle buses on the Island, offering you a perfect travel link between Novalja, the festival site at Zrce Beach and harbor (departure of Sonus Festival's Boat Parties) and all of the other nice places on the Croatian Island.


All fees listed below are target prices which may vary slightly according to traffic situation and your exact destination. We recommend asking for a receipt upon payment. Should any problems arise, please note down the registration number of the vehicle and speak to our staff at the Sonus Info Point / Help Desk.
