DETOUR is recognisable among fans of high-quality, contemporary, electro-acoustic pop sound, occasionally with drum'n'bass mixed in and, in more recent times, some country notes. Their strength is found not only in their most recent works as some of earlier songs from the two previous studio albums "Detour" and "TV" are pillars of their concerts, such as "Ljeto počinje" (Summer begins), "Mjesec” (Moon), "Gledano sa strane" (Seen from the side) and "Prijatelj" (Friend). Their third studio and current album "A što ak' ja..." (What if I ...) proved to be pivotal, transforming the band into a great pop music attraction.

Circolo, July 13th at 23:00
RUNDEK CARGO TRIO. Darko Rundek never played with fewer than six performers, until 2009, when he decided to form a trio with the aim of approaching his music and audience through transparency and intimacy. In this way the members of the Cargo Orchestra, violinist Isabel, saxophonist Dutso Vranić and Darko, formed Rundek Cargo Trio which released the successful album "Plavi avion" (Blue plane) in 2010 and in 2015 the album "Mostovi" (Bridges), which was equally accepted by the critics and audience.
DJ IVO ZUBAN
Circolo, July 14th at 23:00
DJ IVO ZUBAN DJ from Veruda whose work consists of well-known and lesser-known rock and roll, Latino and world music, but he often sneaks in that Italian "canzone."
Circolo, July 15th at 23:00
If you have not heard of DRVORED and their two great singles "Le vieux marin / Fisherman" and "Zanzibar" which are set out in the announcement of their first album titled "Arhelino" - the time has come when you can hear the full album, the first official release of the band. Drvored is a band from Zagreb, founded in 2010. This nine-member group will provide a great fusion of genres that weaves through a multitude of instruments from accordions and flutes, over violin and saxophone to trumpet and trombone. Drvored is a powerful real little orchestra that unstoppably destroys the dance floor with their music style which they describe in one word as - Balkankan!
DJ MARIO KOVAČ
Circolo, July 16th at 23:00
For the last couple of years at our festival, the winning party combination was the venue Circolo and DJ Mario Kovač with his surreal mix of incompatible music! The winning team shouldn’t be changed! In his repertoire you find all the bands and musicians in the alphabet from ABBA to ZZ TOP and everything in between. OK, not everything because you will be spared the sound of cajke (local folk) and related non-music styles but rock, punk and trash will not be missed.
