After two fantastic nights and mornings on Buljarica beach, tonight, for the finale of the Sea Dance festival, the unique techno diva Nina Kraviz and the biggest band in the region, the black and yellow Dubioza Kolektiv, will take centre stage. They will be accompanied by the protector of the Balkan soul sound, Marko Louis, one of the most exciting new electronic acts and the trump card of Exit’s Dance Arena Coeus, a veteran of the local scene Proximus, trap sensation Crni Cerak & Lacku and Montenegrin hip-hop crew Da Wreck.
Following the masterful performances of artists such as Konstrakta, Anfisa Letyago and Mahmut Orhan on Friday, Saturday attracted around 13,000 visitors to Buljarica beach, all thanks to the perfect headliners! The most memorable part of the evening was definitely the performance of the great Italian duo Mind Against, who provided the packed main stage with the perfect balance of energetic and melodic techno. Leading up to their performance, the energy was pumped to the max by global hitmakers Shouse, the unique Senidah and the unstoppable Mimi Mercedez, along with Tam and Micka Lifa. Then the techno grandmaster Human Rias kept the Sea Dance festival full until 6 a.m. for the very end!
Just like the previous evening, global and regional stars had great impressions of the festival, to which they would like to return, both because of the energy they received from the audience and because of the unique festival location and the main stage, which is located only a meter from the beautiful Adriatic Sea! The mega-popular duo Shouse was greeted by a packed beach, singing “Love Tonight“ and “Won’t Forget You“, and many other hits at their premiere performance. “A beautiful and very special performance! We love Sea Dance and Montenegro; the festival’s location and the view of the Adriatic Sea are beautiful; this is one of the most perfect locations in the world! The production, crew, and audience are great! We want to come back; the summer never ends!” says this duo.
Human Rias, who did a perfect job closing the second night on the festival’s main stage, says that he had high expectations of Sea Dance after his performance at this year’s Exit. “I have to say that I am impressed with the festival’s location, the people and the music are fantastic! I am also delighted with the beauty of Montenegro. Thank you, Sea Dancers; I love you with all my heart,“ said Human Rias!
Senidah brought fan-favourite songs, intense energy and an excellent stage presence to Sea Dance. “The best audience is where everyone gathers, and that’s Sea Dance! It is right next to the sea, on the beach, there is nothing more beautiful; I would like to swim in the sea right now! This festival will remain in my soul; the audience is excellent“, said the Balkan trap queen.
Mimi Mercedez also brings unforgettable memories from the festival and her first performance in Montenegro. “It was beautiful; I was blown away! This is by far the best festival experience I’ve had, the best festival ever for me! Incredible, it was a real summer festival atmosphere, which I think every performer lives for. The stage is literally on the seashore; I always wanted to perform in such a place. And I really like that “Eternal Summer” is the slogan of this festival, because it is the slogan I live by!“ said Mimi.
There was no less festival energy throughout the evening at the Together. Always! Stage where Marc Stan, Starac, Mr Mips, Vlado Božovć, Lazar b2b Vuk Đurišić, Branko Vuković b2b Iks Oks, Mr Lekka b2b Mallex Marrero, Budo Šuković, Satie and Stamina performed.
