INmusic returns to Jarun for the 16th time for a packed three-day run from Monday, June 24. This year’s edition of the ever-popular festival features an enticing line-up, including a first-ever performance in Croatia for the Smashing Pumpkins. Other attractions include karaoke, silent parties and more.

DAY 1, JUNE 24

The festival’s Main Stage kicks off with triple headliners. First up, beginning their gig at 6.30pm, is English post-punk duo Sleaford Mods, returning to Zagreb after a crowd-favourite debut two years prior. Their latest album, UK Grim, was released in 2023 and saw them secure their highest chart position in the UK. They’ll be followed by energetic Swedish punk outfit Viagra Boys, who have gained a loyal following since their formation in 2015. The final act for Day One are veterans The National, who have been on the scene since forming in New York in 1999, notching up 11 studio albums and having their music featured on TV hit, Game of Thrones.

DAY 2, JUNE 25

Taking to the main stage first of all is local multiinstrumentalist Antun Aleksa under the name IDEM. Aleksa plays trombone for beloved Zagreb outfit Porto Morto but has found great success in his solo project. Next up, the main stage welcomes Hollywood glamour with Keanu Reeves’ band Dogstar, before Scottish singer-songwriter Paolo Nutini entertains the crowds. Closing out the headlining proceedings for the day is arguably INmusic’s biggest catch this year, with Ireland’s Hozier finally set to perform in Croatia for the first time.

DAY 3, JUNE 26

English indie rockers Bombay Bicycle Club were a dominant force in the late noughties/early 2010s as a key part of an indie wave. The band returned in 2019 after a hiatus and are now ready to entertain in Zagreb on the closing day of the INmusic. Then, long-standing Norwegian electronic duo Röyksopp will show why they’ve been going strong since their formation in 1998, before the evergreen Smashing Pumpkins perform this year's final show on the main stage. The beloved Chicago group first entered the scene way back in 1998, and the buzz around their headlining performance – and their very first in the country – is immense.

Also worth looking out for at Lake Jarun this year is the side programme, which includes a daily Silent Party from 10pm courtesy of KSET and karaoke kicking off every night from 11.30pm.

Doors for the festival open each day at 4.30pm. Tickets, including three-day and single-day passes, are available here. Practical information, festival rules and etiquette can be found here while a full schedule of all performances and available activities can be found on this handy chart
