List of programs


On August 29, the Museum of Yugoslavia will host the youth festival “Hali Gali” within the project “Summer in the Museum”. A concert of three young bands will be held on the plateau in front of the Museum: “Tipon”, “KoiKoi” and “Vizelj”, following a discussion named “A new New Wave?”, with the participation of Dragan Ambrozić (Belgrade Youth Centre), Aleksa Nedić (band “Vizelj”), Boris Vlastelica (band “Repetitor”) and Pavle Banjac (publishing house “Librarion”). The program starts at 6 pm, and the admission is free.

 The Museum of Yugoslavia has been successfully implementing “Summer at the Museum” for four years with the idea to promote the Museum as a place for socializing and entertainment through various programs. The cooperation with the organizers of the “Hali Gali” festival is inspired by marking four decades of the New Wave and the compilation “Paket aranžman”.

Therefore, the debate “A new New Wave?”, which starts at 6 pm, will aim to re-examine the lines of continuity and discontinuity of the local contemporary music scene and the new wave culture. The discussion will involve Aleksa Nedić from the band “Vizelj” as a representative of the musicians from the “Hali Gali” compilation, Boris Vlastelica from the band “Repetitor”, as a member of the so-called New Serbian scenes, then Pavle Banjac, junior editor of the “Librarion”, a publishing house which makes and sells fanzines, do-it-yourself cassettes and discs, whose fanzine followed the appearance of bands from the “Hali Gali” compilation, as well as Dragan Ambrozić, managing director of the Belgrade Youth Centre, who will talk about the importance of Yugoslav youth culture, which culminated with the New Wave, as it is often pointed out in reviews. The discussion will be moderated by the curator of the Museum of Yugoslavia, Milica Tomić.

The concert will start at 8 pm, and the three bands from the mentioned “Hali Gali” compilation will perform.

The band “Tipon” is a music project created in 2019 in Belgrade, whose sound and story are influenced by many factors, the biggest influence of which is the fever of life and its mundanity – according to the members. In front of the Museum of Yugoslavia, they will perform as a duo comprised of Lola Miković and Ivan Posrkača.

“KoiKoi” presented themselves to the audience for the first time with the singles “Sutra” and “Bog te ubio”, which were on the “Hali Gali” compilation in 2019. The band consists of Marko Grabež, Ivana Miljković, Emilija Đorđević and Ivan Pavlović Gizmo. In June 2021, they released their debut album “Pozivi u stranu” for the “Moonlee Records”. According to them, the band is searching for their place in the intersection of the intimacy of the underground and the ecstasy of the mainstream, Balkan melodies and contemporary Western trends, and the main feature of the band are splendid trios.

“Vizelj” is considered by many to be the leader of the new Belgrade alternative sound. Some remember them as the only young band from this region to tour Great Britain and the Republic of Ireland. Their famous songs are “Nosorog“, “Pustinja“ or “Mamuze“, as well as “Ne vidim te od dima“ and “Novčanice“. They are one of the founders and organizers of the “Hali Gali” festival.
