December 18, 2019 – INmusic Festival in Zagreb will hold its Jubilee 15th edition next year, which will take place from June 22-24, 2020. Beck was announced on Wednesday as the festival’s second headliner. 

Jutarnji List reports that the seven-time Grammy award winner, a multitalented artist and risk taker in many musical genres, announced a European tour by confirming his performance on the main stage of the 15th edition of the INmusic Festival. 

Beck’s impressive career is characterized by playing with a variety of music genres and a genuinely distinctive sound. The diverse opus of fourteen studio albums has earned Beck the status of arguably the most original and creative alternative rock musician of the past decade.

Drawing on a full range of musical styles, from folk, psychedelia and funk to soul, hip hop, alternative rock, pop, and electronic music, Beck’s sound is a hybrid that is unique in the world of music. Over fifty nominations for international awards in the fields of music, design and audiovisual media and twenty titles won, including seven Grammys and three Brit Awards, confirm Beck’s global status as a multi-faceted artist whose relentless energy of creation pushes the boundaries with each new studio release.

Thirteen gold and multi-platinum studio albums worldwide, sold-out world tours, countless collaborations with musicians from across the spectrum of contemporary music and unique multidisciplinary art projects are an impressive introduction to his latest, fourteenth studio album, Hyperspace, which was released at the end of November 2019 and presents another face of Beck in the 21st Century.

Nine days ago, the first big name of the 15th edition of INmusic was released. California alternative rockers Deftones will take the stage as part of a tour promoting their long-awaited ninth studio album.

The Deftones were most often associated with ‘nu-metal’, but because of the specificity of their sound, they were never easy to be defined. Critics have also described them as alternative metal, art-rock/art metal, experimental rock, post-punk, and even dream-pop and trip-hop. 

“Since its inception, the multiplatinum and Grammy Award-winning California alternative rockers Deftones have been pushing to create music that is unique to them – balancing and exploring the extremes of aggressive metal sound and elements of psychedelia and shoegaze,” INmusic announced. 

The Deftones performed in Zagreb back 2006, in the backyard of club Močvara, which was the first performance of the band in Croatia, though they have been active for over thirty years. Deftones was founded in 1988 by Chino Moreno, Stephen Carpenter and Abe Cunningham, high school friends who were connected by the local skateboard scene. The line-up has changed several times, as the members also had side projects, but they maintained continuity in releasing albums and concert performances.

The INmusic Festival, which celebrates its 15th anniversary next year, will be held from June 22 to 24, 2020, at the traditional location of the Jarun lake in Zagreb. Three-day festival tickets are available through the official festival webshop.
