5 Great Music Acts to Check out in Zagreb Next Week

Total Croatia News

Indie-folk, electronic music, fado – this weekend and next week will be filled with great tunes.

It seems that winter really is coming – temperatures are dropping, days are shorter and grayer and everything is just kind of gloomy. However, we can’t let that get us down, especially when the following week (and this weekend) are full of great concerts your earbuds will definitely thank you for later.

1) Niall Connolly (November 11, Booksa)

You can always count on Booksa to bring innovative new things and cultural events to the city and this Saturday is no exception – in cooperation with Irish Department of Foreign Affairs, Booksa is bringing this Cork-born, Brooklyn-based singer-songwriter to Zagreb. This charismatic singer will be performing folk-pop together with his “fellow artist, poet, globe trotter and a dear friend of Booksa, Neil McCarthy”.

If you’re into electronic music, you will have bought the tickets by now, but just in case you missed it – Nicole Hummel, aka Nika Roza Danilova aka Zola Jesus, is coming to Zagreb for the third time. Her combination of indie, goth and pop music has often been compared to Kate Bush and Joy Division, but Zola Jesus is much more than that, which you’ll find out for yourself if you visit Močvara next week.
