Future Scope celebrates its 20th anniversary with a 3-day music festival in Zagreb

February 6, 2022 – From May 13 to 15, Zagreb’s Jarun will host the first Future Scope festival on four stages, with more than 30 artists from the electronic, hip hop, rock and pop music scene.

Last year, one of Zagreb’s most famous club programs, Future Scope, celebrated its 20th anniversary. This year it’s celebrating in style – with a three-day festival on Lake Jarun, which will take place on four different but quality stages. This anniversary is celebrated from May 13 to 15, 2022, and the protagonists of the celebration are some of the most famous local and international musicians.

The impressive line-up is led by one of the most famous techno DJs, Sven Väth, nicknamed Papa Sven due to his exceptional contribution to the genre.

He is followed by Stacey Pullen (who comes to Zagreb from Techno’s hometown of Detroit), trance veterans Mauro Picotto and Paul Van Dyk, Sam Paganini, responsible for the timeless anthem “Rave”, from Rush, an American DJ and producer with dozens of records and releases, Nicole Moudaber, one of the most successful women in electronic music, and Faithless, the electronic band that released “Insomnia” comes to Zagreb to play a DJ set. Fans of Wiggle’s UK tech-house sound are thrilled as Terry Francis and Nathan Coles, well-known to Zagreb audiences, are on the programme, and the program will be replenished daily by well-known names from the Croatian electronic scene, including residents of Future Scope; Petar Dundov, Felver, Shipe, DJ Jock, Mr. DJ Dario, Marina Karamarko, E-base and others.

Rundek and Ekipa, TBF, Elemental, Detour, ABOP, Boris Štok and many more names will perform on the live stage, announced by the festival organizers soon!

The Future Scope team is preparing a serious festival that will be able to compete with the best festivals in the world, such as the regional Exit. For 20 years, they have organized more than 700 parties and concerts and have not stopped even during the pandemic.

“We see music as a broad term, so we decided to create a festival that combines different genres and even different audiences. As a result, it will be an interesting mix of subcultural and traditional musical directions. But, well that the two directions we’re going are stylistically different, they have things in common: urban flair, quality and a fun-hungry audience,” the organizers said.

Although the first Future Scope party technically took place in April 2001, the team behind the brand say that in 2002 they began with major overseas tours, which have remained their hallmark. and their main asset, so they consider the year of the birth of the brand. During these 20 years, they explored many places, from Čigrađa de Murter to The Best and the old OTV, for the program to find its permanent home in Boogaloo and Jarun.

They are especially proud of their public.

“They kept us on our toes, and thanks to them we have always invested maximum effort and patience. Without them, we wouldn’t be so cohesive and ultimately sustainable. special in our hearts, they are Fatboy Slim at the 2020 Fair and Boris Brejcha in Jarun the same year. These are two big parties that we managed to organize despite the complicated measures of COVID-19. We also remember Amélie Lens at the Fair with 3,000 visitors and celebrating with Jeff Mills at Boogaloo, which is the most visited event in the history of this club,” the organizers concluded.

The organizers have prepared tickets for the early birds of the festival which can be purchased until February 15 at a promotional price of 199 kn via the Entrance. More information about the festival can be found on their social networks.
