Evo Ruke at Đardin: Live Music and Performances for 73 Split Summer Nights

Daniela Rogulj

On Friday, June 28, the 6th Evo Ruke! summer festival begins at Đardin park in Split. Namely, this series of concerts and performances transform Đardin into a jazz, blues, and rock’n’roll paradise.

Visitors will be able to enjoy the live performances of local performers on 73 summer evenings this year, with acts ranging from songwriters to themed days, and even exciting cover bands. And the best part? Entrance is free every night. 

The opening evening will feature The Splitters and the Harpoon Blues Band, Trio Trabacool on Saturdaya, and Cabaret à la Carte on Sunday. The concerts begin at 9:15 pm and the event will last until September 8th, reports Dalmatinski Portal

“Citizens, Evo Ruke! invites you to the most beautiful Split park – Đardin where you will surely not stumble upon a bad music note, and where at any time of the day or evening you can always find refreshments and carefully selected Croatian musicians who are prepared to satisfy even the most finicky of guests. Also, let your friends know that something special and different is happening in Split’s Đardin this summer. To be involved in the story, follow the HR Radio Split program and read Dalmatinski Portal. Breath in a little city culture, citizens,”  said the organizers. 

For the opening, the organizers emphasized they have prepared ‘something new’ – The Splitters, whose excellent single ‘Oboji me’ has hit the radio before their new album is out on Croatia Records, and ‘something old’, or the Harpoon Blues Band who have taken the stage in Split for years. The audience will take care of ‘something borrowed and something blue’, the organizers concluded.
