June 1, 2020 – The 15th edition of the INmusic festival, which has been postponed to June next year due to COVID-19, will feature the international punk world music sensation Gogol Bordello, the festival organizer announced on Monday.

Led by the charismatic Eugene Hütz, Gogol Bordello brings together a diverse group of musicians and performers from all over the world, whose cultural influences also form the unique sound of the group.

Roma and Eastern European influences in Gogol Bordello’s songs and performances are combined with energetic punk and dub elements accompanied by violin, accordion and saxophone.

With seven studio albums behind him, one EP, a series of guest appearances with other musicians and in documentaries and feature films, including Lie Schreiber’s “Everything is Illuminated” and Madonna’s directorial debut “Filth and Wisdom”, in two decades of work, Gogol Bordello has established his status as one of the most attractive and unusual phenomena on the world music scene, according to the organizer.

Gogol Bordello joins the already confirmed premiere Croatian performances of The Killers, Nick Mason’s Saucerful of Secrets and Belle and Sebastian as part of the postponed edition of INmusic Festival #15, which will take place at the Jarun Islands in Zagreb from June 21 to 23, 2021. 

Recall, the Zagreb music festival announced it would be postponed last month:

“On April 23rd 2020, the Croatian government has announced updates to the national epidemiological measures and limitations introduced in March to fight the spread of the coronavirus epidemic in Croatia, which include the expected and necessary continuation of bans for large public gatherings and events. In line with similar decisions and bans on public gatherings well into the summer months announced over the past weeks by many European governments, the expected postponement of INmusic festival #15 for June 2021 has now become official. Although we were expecting this decision, it is with a heavy heart that we accept the reality of not being able to attend live concerts and festivals this summer, but we are working hard on delivering the anniversary edition of INmusic festival to you all in 2021.

The festival’s organization team is in close contact with the announced and not-yet-announced artists who have all expressed their wish and intent to execute their performances in the new dates of the postponed INmusic festival #15 edition. Seeing as all planned international tours need to be rescheduled which is a complex process that requires international coordination, artists and the festival’s organization team kindly ask for your patience and understanding until this process is finalized.

We would like to thank each and every one of you for your support, kind words, understanding and patience – you were the reason we made it this far, you remain the reason to push through this as well. 

Stay safe, take care of the people around you and keep your spirits up – this too shall pass!

See you in 2021!”
