2023 will be the year of the first edition of SHIP. It will last for four days in Šibenik, Croatia across several venues.

At the showcase part of the festival, 40 bands will perform, half of which will be Croatian bands, and the other half will be bands from other countries. In addition to the showcase festival itself, an important part of SHIP is the conference, where all participants will have the opportunity to meet colleagues from all over the world. How the music industry works in their country, how to break into their market, and the advantages and disadvantages of their scenes - all of these questions will be answered directly by all SHIP visitors.
