Check the schedule at major gig venue Tvornica or choose instead an intimate cellar gig at the Klub. For a warm-up drink, try Beertija, with its fantastic selection of beers – and take a selfie standing next to the Joe Strummer statue in the courtyard.
For after-gig shenanigans take a taxi to cult indie club Jabuka, a welcoming bolt-hole for anyone into New Wave, Goth and alternative rock-pop up to the present day.
Recover with coffee at the music-themed Vinyl before taking a tram to Trešnjevka to while away a few hours trawling second-hand record shops such as Freebird, Karma, Dirty Old Shop and Roxy.
The Croatian National Library might seem like an odd location for a rock-fuelled night out but the building is home to two great live music bars, Hard Place and Spunk. Further south in the same direction, alternative club Močvara has retro-themed club nights every Saturday.
Skim the stalls at the Britanski trg collectors’ market, a happy hunting ground for old vinyl, vintage clothes, retro sunglasses and all kinds of other things you don’t really need.
