Crossover Festival Zagreb

Zagreb gets a new international music festival - Crossover Festival Zagreb - a unique five-day event in the center of town, Ribnjak park. Crossover Festival Zagreb brings a number of interesting musicians from all over the world. New cultures, new music styles, and a completely different program are waiting for visitors from July 26 to July 30.

The first edition of Crossover Festival Zagreb brings a fantastic palette of musicians. French jazz pianist Cédric Hanriot, who played at Grammy's stripped album Diane Reeves, is accompanied by a contemporary jazz Groovematic trio.

The audience will also enjoy the performance of Maurizio Presidente band composed of Portuguese, French and German musicians who successfully mix genres and rhythms specific to their culture with a focus on gipsy jazz. From neighboring Serbia comes Lady Jelena whose singles like "Nikola" and "Watermelon love" are already well-known to the local audience, just like those band from Kosovo, Gipsy Groove, which has already become a major European attraction. The stage will also be shared with African band Kaira Kela, whose contagious rhythms all push to the dance floor, and many others. Namely, there will be two or three concerts every day, and in the meantime, superb DJs will have the best DJs.

Crossover Festival Zagreb, apart from the music program, will also offer an interesting gastronomic offer. Delicious snacks and ice-cream refreshments will not be missed. The festival will run from Wednesday, July 26th to Sunday, July 30th. On Wednesdays, Thursdays, and Fridays, working hours are from 5 pm to midnight, while the weekend festival will open at noon. The entrance is free.
