After the spectacular performances of Nicolas Jaar, a new Apgrade party is scheduled for the 5th of December at the Magacin Depo in Travnicka Street in Savamala. The party is supposed to bring the audience a programming circuit different from the usual one. One of the most prominent representatives of the Detroit scene Mike Huckaby and Swedish rising star Sebastian Mullaert, also known as a member of the cult tandem Minilogue, will perform together at the joining point of two different generations of electronic music that seem to be able to reconcile equally uncompromising artistic approaches.
Tickets: 600 RSD www.gigstix.com / www.eventim.rs
