The eighth Mikser Festival, the largest regional festival of creativity and innovation, will be held for the fifth time in the Belgrade neighborhood of Savamala, from 8 – 12 June 2016. Under the slogan “Society Sensitive” the Festival will be characterized by topics of gender equality and female creativity, social equality, open dialogue, multiculturalism and efficient conflict resolution.
On the main stage, Miksalište (Mostarska 5), we’ll showcase music from the region that has significantly contributed to defining the Balkan sound, and a special emphasis will be placed on female creativity in the field of music.
On the first day of the festival, 8 June, one of the best concert bands in the region, Elemental, and the musician, poet and media manipulator Rambo Amadeus will play at Miksalište. They will be joined by Beti Đorđević and Rambita Amadeus, whom Rambo will present for the first time to the general public during the Mikser Festival.
Elemental is a Croatian band whose sound is based on rap with influences of rock, soul, funk and reggae, with sharp lyrics and interesting instrumental backing. Critics and the public agree that they are a unique and original musical phenomenon in the region. During its 18 years of existence, the band has won a loyal fan base that is joined every year by new admirers recognizing their honest and original attitude, not only regarding music, but also as regards the social issues that concern us all.
