In the last two years this youth cultural center has been the host of a 2-day progressive festival named Zdravo Mladi. The festival is mostly dedicated to all those young people who are fed up with the regular cultural program of the city and are eager for fresh music faces. It aims to attract the culturally aware population by offering new names from the international music scene and so far it has done a great job.
Enriched by its two previous events, which were noted as a huge success, this year the organisational team has prepared another edition, set for the 17th of May. Same place, same concept, a dozen new artists and tons of promo events coming up in the following weeks. This year’s line-up provides excellent festival entertainment and here are some of the artists involved:Germany’s loopstation sttraction Konrad Kuechenmeister, London’s male/female duo Bitches, Serbian electro pop duo Ti, North Ireland’s dark quartet Girls Names, Chinawoman, FM Belfast, Macedonian bands Green Out, Kanton 6 and the John, as well as DJ Rashad & DJ Spinn.
To sum up: great selection of bands and performers, excellent choice of location, gigs, good organization, smiling faces, phenomenal stage preparation, cheap beer and good times. I believe the venue went beyond people’s expectations and it set itself as an ambitious festival with more to come.
Book your calendars and off to Zdravo Mladi!
