‘Tis (almost) the season for Split summer music festivals, and we’re finally getting a taste of who we’ll be enjoying this year.
San Sustipanske Noći
For starters, one of Split’s favorite music events, San Sustipanske Noći, has announced their seventh edition for the 12th and 13th of July. On the stage between the pines, the festival’s organizers announced this afternoon that Neno Belan will bring a range of top musicians under the name ‘Mediteran Orchestra’ for this occasion.
Belan, for the unplugged performance at the magical Sustipan, will be joined by his band Fiumense guides, a string quartet, klapa, accordion and mandolin, percussion, and another acoustic guitar.
In Belan’s almost always sold out club concerts, concertgoers equally demand the songs of Đavoli, as well as the hits of ‘Rijeka snova‘, ‘Divojka sa juga‘, ‘Zar više nema nas‘, ‘Nedir nad plavim morem’ and’Kiša’. This time, however, Belan’s hometown performance in his native Split, will be a musical treat or the ages.
San Sustipanske Noći, which year after year is rejoiced by an increasing number of fans of good music, will begin ticket sales next week when the organizers announce the second headlining artist.
The second edition of the AJ CHA festival devoted to Dino Dvornik at Hajduk’s old stadium Stari Plac announced Dubioza Kolektiv as the first headliner on August 18th this year!
The festival, which is conceived as a reminder of Dino Dvornik, one of the greatest Croatian musicians, and his timeless music, features a range of musicians, Dino’s colleagues and friends, and many bands and DJs. The second edition of the festival will be held at several attractive city locations from August 16th to 18th.
The highlight of the festival this year will undoubtedly be Dubioza Kolektiv, one of the most successful groups in the Balkan region. Dubioza Kolektiv has welcomed enthusiastic audiences around the world for many years. With their work on Dvornik’s song “Treba mi zraka,” they have opened the door to the second AJ CHA festival and will help us celebrate the great work of the Croatian King of Funk. Their music draws on punk, reggae, dub, ska and rock, which is perfectly composed to create unique sounds that carry strong political and life messages. So far, they have performed at many festivals throughout Croatia, Serbia, Bosnia and Herzegovina, Slovenia, Hungary, the Netherlands and around the world, promoting the culture of these areas.
The festival locations are carefully selected and are chosen based on the connection with Dino Dvornik. The festival will announce more details soon, exciting information, and more artist announcements on the way.
