Big names, exciting discoveries and bands supported by the Europavox Project: get ready for INmusic Festival, in Zagreb, from the 19th to the 21st of June.

Get ready for the marvelous INmusic Festival, partner of the Europavox Project: the Croatian event, for its 12th edition, will take place from the 19th to the 21st of June on the beautiful location of Lake Jarun, in the country’s capital, and should be a infinite source of joy and discovery.

The general line-up is impressive: the almighty Arcade Fire, Alt-J, Kings of Leon, Kasabian, Flogging Molly, Michael Kiwanuka, Slaves or Danko Jones are part of the biggest names of this year’s edition, while the local hero Darko Rundek, The Strange, Antenat, Them Moose Rush, Throes + The Shine, all europavox.com favorites, are also among the bands booked by the Croatian event.

Even better: for the second year, the festival will hold a few concerts as part of the Europavox Project. And the line up is awesome too: the forever young and amazing Booka Shade (Germany), the incredibly powerful Repetitor (Serbia), the already beloved St. Tropez (NL) and the captivating Public Service Broadcasting (UK) are all going to energize this fantastic European party.

Listen to a playlist of the festival and read more about these bands below!

Booka Shade
Based in
Germany, Frankfurt
Style
If you can’t hum along to at least one Booka Shade song, then you’ve arrived on the wrong planet. Pack your Galaxy bags, and zip yourself back to Alpha Centauri your nonchalant, misplaced space-nozzler. You’re lost. That’s right, the German duo that is Booka Shade are the intergalactic kings of electro-pop hooks. The eat melodies for breakfast and have had more hit records than you’ve had hot dinners. Fact....
Public Service Broadcasting
Based in
United Kingdom, London
Style
Imagine your old history teachers, making infectious prog-rock in their spare time, using ridiculous pseudonyms to hide their real identity, and dressing in the most outrageous, British costume pieces. Once you have that image in your mind, then you have Public Service Broadcasting. Using samples from public information films or the British Film Institute, incorporating particular thematic narratives throughout different records, PBS dictate particular moments of history through their unique pastiche of vocal sampling, and noodly, prog-guitar-funk. It’s like history lessons, but more fun with a bunch of middle-aged men who dress like your ...
St. Tropez
Based in
Netherlands, Amsterdam
Style
Rough-and-ready punk rock has (sadly) become somewhat unfashionable lately, what with the plethora of bedroom pop and glacial R&B artists hoovering up acclaim and column inches. Dutch four-piece St. Tropez didn’t get the memo though; they resolutely plough their own furrow of what they call “yachtpunk”, a slack and sleazy mix of punk, garage, and louche pop, complete with overblown solos and plenty of fuzz. It’s rough around the edges and delivered with the subtlety of a sledgehammer, but what do you expect from a DIY band who record in a converted gay sauna in Amsterdam?...
Repetitor
Based in
Serbia, Belgrade
Style
You wouldn't think it when looking at the two diminutive girls and lanky guy that make up Repetitor, but they deliver a furious sonic beating. Growing up in war-torn Serbia, they picked up instruments and learned how to play them on their own, then immediately proceeded to rip-up the fabric of rock'n'roll. Their garage-brewed music stomps, howls, screeches and spews forth in the time-honoured tradition of punk but retains a catchy simplicity that'll have you humming along in no time. Ana-Marija's seductive bass, Milena's Grohl-esque thumping on drums and Boris' cutting riffs provide the anguished backdrop for lyrics ...

From the early eighties on a singer-songwriter, Darko Rundek (61) continuously plays one of the most important roles in the Croatian rock music. He started as a frontman of the Zagreb new wave band Haustor which released four carefully crafted albums including 1983 masterpiece Treci svijet (Third ...

If you would have visited Porto in 2011, you would never have guessed that a group like Throes + The Shine was trying out a new musical breed right then. It all began at a small festival where the two acts where playing (Throes are the rock duo, The Shine are the kuduro singers), and a certain ...

It was in the mid 90's when The Walkabouts came to play their first gig in Zagreb. Among the local audience were members of then little-known instrumental surf rock combo The Bambi Molesters from the nearby city of Sisak. Several years later The Bambi Molesters found their own way to the world stage ...

What is standard rock music anyway? Certainly not how Them Moose Rush would want you to qualify their playing style anyway. The young musical trio - Nikola Runjavec, Marinko Komlen and Branimir Kuruc  - merges progressive rock and noise with a zest for infuriating and invigorating riffs. In 2013, they ...

In the beginning, Antenat looked like just another very young Zagreb rock group with guitars, bass, drums and vocals. Frontman Nenad Kovačić started the band in 1997 with some teenage friends from his old neighbourhood, but over the years, more and more friends with musical skills came to their sound ...
