“I am very happy that we have finally managed to organize this festival in Split in memory of Dino Dvornik and funk music. It took some time to make this happen and to gather the right team to create the ‘Aj Cha’ festival. We hope that this festival will be held year after year and expand and strengthen with some of the well-known and lesser-known names that nurture dance music, all in the memory of Dino, who we owe so much to in the Croatian music scene. I hope Split will get another worthy festival that promotes good and positive energy,” said Danijela Dvornik.

Dino left behind a legacy that continues to inspire and hypnotize musicians today. A true symbol of Split, the goal of the festival is to unite Dino’s creativity and revive the energy he has inadvertently transferred to his beloved city.
