Don't Miss: November music events in Sarajevo

If you find yourself in a dilemma as to where to travel in November, and you’re one who loves good music, we recommend that you visit Sarajevo, which is chock-full of interesting performances this month.

2019/11/07

After seeing the city attractions and trying some gourmet specialties, you’ll enjoy the rich array of concerts being given for all sorts of music styles: from jazz, sevdah, folk, fado and classical, to techno, pop, rock, hip hop….

The prestigious music festival Sarajevo Jazz Fest (November 7 to 10) will bring some of the most interesting names on today’s music scene to our city, and the National Theater, Dom Policije and SARTR will serve as festival venues.

On November 9, you can dance ‘til dawn in what was once Holiday Hotel’s discotheque during the first edition of Carbon Room, a pop-up concert that will see a show by Welsh DJ Harrison BDP; and the same goes for November 8 and 9 during the techno Decibel Weekend at Dom Mladih, where Etapp Kyle, Lewis Fautzi, Ivan Komlinović, Sev Dah, Filip Xavi and Q'le & WØLT will all be performing.

On November 29, Turkish DJ and producer Mahmut Orhan will be performing at Dom Mladih to mark 50 years since the opening of KSC Skenderija.

Around 20 performers, music veterans and young bands from the area once covered by Former Yugoslavia will all give performances during the ten-hour spectacle Beyond Time for All Times at KSC Skenderija (November 9).

A promotion of Put u Plus, the new album by Edo Maajka, one of BiH’s best rappers, will be held at Klub Jedan on November 15; and the finals for Red Bull RapLika (a regional free style rapping contest) will be held the following day at Zetra.

On November 16, Sarajevo cantor Maja Milinković will bring the fusion of fado and sevdah to the restaurant Dos Hermanos.

If you love folk music and sevdah, be sure to reserve the last days of November for Haris Džinović’s concert at KSC Skenderija (Nov. 29) and Božo Vrećo’s performance at the National Theater (Nov. 30).
