Belgrade’s iconic club 20/44 celebrates eighth birthday, so the team decided to developed attractive music program that brings a charming collection of original and unusual protagonists of local and foreign club sounds. Given the fact that this small but magical club is one of the key European epicenters for true connoisseurs of dance music, from this special occasion we can expect a superb experience!

On Friday 14.04. 20/44 boat will host electro/body/techno master Oliver Ho better known as the Broken English Club. He will be supported by Schwabe and Toshke from Disco not Disco collective. While on pontoon Lauri Sorini, the resident of Helsinki club Kaiki, which is known as “Finish Berghain” will play a mix of italo, acid, techno, disco, deep, 80’s and 90’s sounds and new tunes.

WC7, Vladimir Ivkovic, Slobodan Brkic a.k.a. DJ Brka, Ivan Zupanc a.k.a. Unknown Artis, Jaka Batič from Tetkine Radosti and Lüle from Complex collectives.
