The biggest party on the Montenegrin coast, the Sea Dance Festival, starts tonight on the Buljarica beach in Budva, and the audience will have a chance to hear some of the biggest music stars for the first time during the festival’s three nights! The first acts to perform at the festival will be Konstrakta, Anfisa Letyago, Human Rias, Coeus, Kejt, Tam and Micka Lifa. In anticipation of an unforgettable weekend, we present everything this great line-up has in store.
The region’s favourite artist, an ordinary woman who wears bangs and has a beauty mark, who has delighted and conquered the world with her performance at this year’s Eurovision, will have her first Montenegrin performance as Konstrakta. As the summer star, she toured the main stages at Sea Star and Exit, where she was the first domestic headliner in the festival’s history. She will open this year’s Sea Dance on the first festival night, which will be marked by the songs “Mekano,“ “Nobl,“ and, of course, the world-famous “In Corpore Sano.“
For the first time, the Adriatic coast will rock to the singles “HAZE,“ “Nisida,“ and “Catch The Spirit,“ brought by the techno voice of the new generation, Anfisa Letyago, on the first night of the festival. This producer and DJ exudes intense Mediterranean energy at the DJ counter, her tracks embody the new wave in techno, and the quality of her DJing skills was highlighted by none other than Carl Cox.
Human Rias is the only act in the history of Exit to both open and close one of the biggest dance floors in the world, mts Dance Arena, in a single year, and he brings the Munich underground sound to his debut Sea Dance performance on Saturday, August 27th. He is known as the resident DJ and booker at the former cult Munich club MMA (Mixed Munich Arts); he is part of the ARTBAT team and a long-time friend of the EXIT Festival. Using his experience to straddle the line between techno and house, he certainly promises a party to remember.
Coeus will bring unique musical energy on the last festival night with numerous releases, including “Horizon,“ “Rebirth,” “Beyond Dreaming,“ “Elysian,“ “Eden,“ and “Forgotten Love.“ He is a representative of the well-respected Afterlife label and is considered one of the best producers and DJs in the region. Deep melodic progressions characterise his sets, and his tracks are often found in the sets of electronic music greats such as Tale Of Us, Solomun, Adriatique and Dixon.
Three rising stars, leaders of the new generation in their respective genres, Tam, Micka Lifa, and Kejt, will deliver their vibes for the first time on the second night of the Sea Dance Festival. The talented singer-songwriter Tam will make the audience dance with her fresh summer hit single “Pogana,” as well as tracks from her debut EP release “Refleksija,“ and well-known songs “Žad,“ “Brži od svega,“ and “Aj ćao.“ The trapper Micka Lifa brings notable singles such as “Njiham,“ “Natural & Pure,“ and the indispensable “Kardio,“ while the versatile Kejt will present her hits “Mikelanđelo,” “Cure sa Balkana,” “Olovo,” and “Eva.”
