Electronic meets jazz at this weekend art and music festival, held in a huge unused swimming pool in Ivanić-Grad, 40 Km outside of Zagreb

Now in its fourth year, this adventurous art and music weekend is an easy 35 minute train ride from Zagreb's centre and a great option for clubbers and music fans let down by August's relatively barren calendar of events in the capital. Taking place in Ivanić-Grad, the focal point of the festival is the leafy town's never used, centrally located swimming pool, which DJs, live bands, artists and the audience will inhabit. Every year, the walls of the pool are redecorated by local graffiti artists as the festival progresses, with Petra Šabić, Fozvald Narf and kontigenciJA taking responsibility this year. This year's musical theme is electronic meets jazz. On Friday evening, proceedings begin with an all vinyl DJ night which will showcase the enviable collections of Zagreb's Ilija Rudman and Rijeka's Dr. Smeđi Šećer. On Saturday, an afternoon in which most of the painting should take place will be followed by live music performances from 7pm. Bands Litošt and Container Doxa both visit from Slovenia, the former a fresh, contemporary jazz trio from Ljubljana, the latter a more extensive combo who perform futuristic jazz-edged sounds and in multi-media format, with an often stunning visual backdrop. The line up is completed by esteemed Zagreb duo Jan Kinčl & Regis Kattie, whose live combination of techno, deep house and jazz has previously graced the stages of some of Croatia's most high profile music festivals, such as Dimensions in Pula. Jan Kinčl & Regis Kattie's appearance comes fresh from the 2018 release of their Florette EP and their critically acclaimed debut album In Plain Sight. There's a local dormitory available to anyone wishing to stay over on Friday night, very reasonably priced at just 70 kuna.
