Getting Around


We strongly recommend not to use your car for drives between Novalja and Zrce. 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.

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 pricey.

Public Transport

We strongly recommend to purchase a SONUS Island Shuttle ticket with your festival ticket. This allows you to use the shuttle buses on the Island, which makes getting around in Novalja much easier and gives you a perfect travel link between Novalja and the festival site at Zrce Beach.

You can always buy your island shuttle ticket while you're at SONUS. Please see our dedicated section below for timetables, fees and more.


We've partnered with a local taxi agency to provide you with stable fees and secure rides. Check for "SONUS Trusted Partner" stickers to make sure you're driving with one of our trusted cabs. Alternatively you'll also have the option to book an Uber!

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.
