Marin Lalić

Founder and CEO of Bear Stone Festival, an open-air festival dedicated to Psychedelic/Desert/Stoner Rock genre that is held in a unique nature setting in the heart of Croatia.
The first edition of the festival was held on July 01&02 2022 as a limited capacity, free entry promo festival titled Bear Stone Festival – Year Zero Edition. The lineup consisted of international headliners such as Mars Red Sky and Black Rainbows as well as some famous Croatian names in the genre such as She Loves Pablo and Stonebride. Year Zero did a great job to announce the festival to the general public with extremely positive feedback coming both from the visitors and the bands that were a part of it.
First official edition of the festival was held on July 07&08 2023 and it was headlined by one of the biggest names of the scene – Monster Magnet and Orange Goblin with a number of great acts from all over the world. Bear Stone Festival 2023 received phenomenal reviews from both the visitors, the press and from the bands themselves. Inspired by the success of the 2023 edition of the festival, Bear Stone Festival 2024 will expand to a 4 day duration from July 04 to July 07 with the addition of a third stage which will allow us to expand the number of bands that form the lineup of the festival to 28 bands.
