THE ISLAND

Small islands have always been objects of desire. They are self-referential. Places of refuge, restoration and intimacy. With an anarchic spirit and defiant of distant centers of power.
They create utopian visions and bring reconciliation.

Islands foster the sense of “all being in this together” and remaking the world anew.

THE ISLAND

the 3SO island

This is why 3 Smoked Olives Island is so special. Located on the Danube River, far away from the bustle of the cities, on the border between Romania and Bulgaria, near the ferry crossing between Calarași(RO) & Silistra(BG). A magical place from your dreams. An escape gate. An isolated island with soft sands & waters and a fresh grown forest. The place where everyone’s your friend. The mystical land that calms and in the same time awakens your spirit.

The gathering of a nice community that for several days forget about their daily working routine and concerns. 
We let go of everything and use each moment to recharge though nature’s energy, while living the Island Life, just 1 hour drive from Bucharest.

The story started years ago, when a small group of friends, nature
& house music lovers wanted to have their closed, intimate party on a Friday night, at the ‘3 Masline Afumate’ fishing cabin. It lasted 3 days.

The initial group grew into a beautiful community of Islanders.

THE MUSIC

Each year we make sure 3SÓ music is a source of fun, still progressive sounds. Over time, many of our artists have become part of the Islanders’ community. Electronic, dance, house, in the afternoon all throughout the night and morning to make you escape and explore.

  • THE 3SO GATE

    THE 3SO GATE

    Once you reach the 3SO Gate, you have to validate your pass with your original ID, and perform a luggage check for food, drinks, alcohol and hidden weapons. 

    After this first step, you will receive your 3SO access wristband, and you will have to get your boat transfer ticket(40 lei). This covers an ‘in & out’ ride to the Island and back on land. If you want extra rides, it will cost you extra. 

    Near the 3SO Gate, there is also a secured parking lot, with a limit of 500 parking spots that will be charged separately(40 lei for the entire festival period).

  • WRISTBANDS

    WRISTBANDS

    For each 3SO edition we are sharing our coolest wristbands, packed in the most useful packaging for an Islander. 

    We are trying to find good quality wristbands so you can be a proud Islander and recognise other community members long time after the festival will be over. 

  • ACCOMMODATION

    ACCOMMODATION

    CAMPING in the FOREST & 10km of BEACH with the finest SAND, on the DANUBE RIVER.

    MILLION STARS HOTEL
    You will find on the Island a camping area in the forest where the whole sky full of stars is your ceiling during the night and you can enjoy the freshness of the trees by day. In the camping area you will also find a food court with all the goodies you need for a great time, improved showers and toilets based on your own past experiences and feedback. 

    #3SO it is best experienced with a TENT. And we encourage you to bring one, but if you are a light traveler, there is an option to find it fully equipped at the time of your arrival. Check out the tent rental section for more details. 

    For those of you, who can’t sleep in a tent or might be bothered because of the moon light, there will be other options. We are planning to develop a serious campsite near the festival ground where you will be able to rent A-frame cabins, Safari tents and containers. 

  • BOATS

    BOATS

    You will be guided at the embarking area once you will receive your 3SO wristband and get your luggage checked.

    The boats will be available only at the embarking point, between 8:00 AM and 20:00 PM. 

    The fee for an ‘in & out’ ride is 40 lei and will be paid every time you have to walk into the 3SO Gate, in order to get back on the boat. 

    All of the boats will be branded with the 3 Smoked Olives logo, to avoid confusion and overpricing.

    If you are a boat owner, there will be a secured small water parking on the beach where you can leave your boat, for an extra daily fee – 50 lei. 

    Due to safety reasons, other boats won’t be allowed to park or stay at the shore, except those on the water parking area.
