Matthias Paul aka Paul van Dyk was one of the first superstar DJs of the trance music sound, although over recent years he has preferred not to be limited by association with this specific genre. Hailing from Germany, he was the first-ever DJ to receive a Grammy nomination, has several times been regarded as the world's leading DJ and has sold over 3 million albums, his latest being the life-affirming 'From Then On', which was released in 2017. In 2018 he was the only DJ invited to perform at the official World Cup manifestations and he appears in Zagreb following a summer-long residency undertaken in Ibiza.
Austrian duo Kruder and Dorfmeister came to prominence in the '90's, their trip hop and chillout sound capturing the electronic energy and post-rave euphoria of the old-school dance scene. They incorporated melodic piano arrangements, deep soul, hip-hop, funk and drum and bass into that sound, notably shifting up the tempo and variety of flavours in their live appearances. Remixing everyone from Gregory Isaacs to Madonna, they've sold millions of records, and their mellow mixes aren't bereft of contemporary relevance - expect lashings of jazzy new house tunes alongside the classics.

Over 100 images taken during Croatia's War Of Independence are presented in Up Close and Personal: War in Croatia, the first official exhibition at the new Image Of War Photography Museum. The exhibition holds not only the work of professional Croatian, Serb and world-renowned photographers such as Peter Turnley, Dragoljub Zamurović, Ron Haviv, Christopher Morris, Romeo Ibrišević and Matko Biljak, but also photos donated by the public. Alongside the photographs are the testimonies of those who were caught up in the conflict. The exhibition depicts not only the actual conflict and those who took part, but also the aftermath and the people who existed within that environment. Photographs of disturbed and injured participants in the war stand next to those of the distraught and grieving, plus those of children who make a playground in the scorched earth, destruction and rubble.
A treat for your inner child (or your actual child), this exhibition focuses on the work of American Modernist Alexander Calder – also known as the man who invented the hanging mobile. Calder was the most playful of the great 20th century sculptors, obsessed with movement and theatricality. His mobiles seem to have a life of their own, and watching them as they spin and cast shadows on the walls is joy incarnate.
