The below-zero temperature which rang in 2020 will not affect the warm atmosphere of the events to be held in the coming week.

2020/01/09

The end of the 9th edition of the Coca-Cola Sarajevo Holiday Market in Hastahana Park is drawing to a close, so be sure to have some fun at the Carlsberg Holiday Pub, which will see gigs by Dernex, Evropa Band, The Babe Barbarela ESFF and the Selam Tufekčić Band. The last night of the event, January 13, has already been reserved for Klix.ba's annual Humanitarian party, with Neno Murić performing.

As usual, the weekend is reserved for plenty of music events at some top spots, where you can enjoy live performances by: Coloseum Club, Aquarius Vils, Underground, Jazzbina Sarajevo, Cinemas Sloga, Pivnica HS, Club Mash, Mr. Charlie Chaplin, Yu Caffe. And there’s Silver & Smoke and Trezor, where some outstanding DJ sets await you.

The stage at the Hadžići Winter Fest will see performances by Ammara Mistrić and his band, as well as by Dunja Fazlić.

Staza Bar and Restaurant on Mt. Bjelašnica is preparing an interesting event with its Retro Race, which will see participants compete while wearing ski apparel from the 1990s. The contest will be followed by an afterparty. Good fun also awaits you up on Mt. Jahorina and Ravna Planina, where you can dance to live music after some night skiing.

All of Sarajevo's theaters have lined up varied programs, with four plays set for Friday, January 10 alone.

The long-awaited comedy adventure that tells the story of Dr. Dolittle and his furry friends arrives in cinemas this week, making it an excellent choice for the entire family. We recommend the war drama, 1917, for history buffs, as well as The Diary of Diana B.

You can find information about all of these events on our calendar, and be sure to take a look at our selection of the most interesting events taking place over the next seven days:
