Live Music Venues in Split: Look No Further

Daniela Rogulj

Going out in Split is almost too easy. Options literally present themselves right in front of your face and I know that I’m oftentimes overwhelmed by the fact that “I have too many things I want to do tonight.” Some may see that too many options are a blessing, others a curse, but for music lovers like myself, I believe that Split has done a excellent job in setting the tone for some stellar bands to play live, and these venues are some of the favorites I’ve visited thus far.

The venue I’ve been to most in Split has to be Split Circus. Like the underground basement in ‘That 70’s Show’, Circus has done an incredible job over the years keeping their patrons engaged, interested, and loyal to their cause. Hosting everything from one off shows, mini music showcases, DJ nights and Gay friendly events, Circus has become the epitome of underground cool for the young music lovers to seasoned Split legends. Although closing its doors at their current location at Dosud 6 i Jadranska 1, as a circus does, they will reopen in a new location in the next few months.

Kocka, located on Ulica Slobode 28 in Gripe, is the official ‘youth club’. Boasting over two decades in existence, Kocka is led by a coalition of youth organizers to ensure they put on the best shows and exhibitions in an extremely unique atmosphere. Kocka is also underground, and you walk down a series of steep cement steps before you find yourselves in a dark, cemented room with rock ‘n roll music blasting and hundreds of the hippest kids in Split surrounding you. The program they host is diversified, and they are oftentimes bringing in some of the biggest alternative acts in the region. A definite go-to if you’re an avid music lover and concert goer.

Judino Drvo, known to others as ‘Judas Tree’ has been on the scene exactly two years. Located in the unusual yet perfect setting of a former warehouse on the railroad, Judino Drvo has quickly won the ‘cool kid’ award since its opening. With concerts, theatre and film nights, as well as vintage fairs and occasional daytime events, the location helps to make Judino a diversified venue for art and music lovers alike. Not to mention the decor inside put me into industrial hipster heaven. If you’re in Split and you see an event happening here, GO! Judino is located at Kopilica 23.
