ZEZ Festival 2002

The third edition of the ZEZ Festival was supposed to take place from 15 to 19 April 2020, but due to the epidemiological situation it was postponed to autumn – 14 – 18.10.2020. This year, too, you can expect top-notch fun with sound and a genre-diverse line-up of performers through the Sound Exhibition and three concert evenings. The festival will once again be opened by the Sound Exhibition on the seventh anniversary of Colin Stetson’s first ZEZ concert.

This year, they decided to dedicate the program to domestic and regional performers, not only because of the uncertainty of the coming months, but also to provide them with at least some support in these demanding times. Despite everything, we are looking forward to this opportunity for performers from wider ZEZ relatives to get more space, and we hope that in the spring of 2021 we will be able to return in full glory with the international lineup.

Daily tickets for all autumn concerts will cost 40 kn, while festival tickets will not be on sale for this edition of the festival due to the control of the number of visitors. All concerts will be limited to 100 visitors due to epidemiological measures.

You can buy tickets at KSET or Dirty Old Shop.

The ZEZ Festival is conceived as a mutation of the concert cycle of experimental music, which has been held under this name at KSET since 2013 and has over 50 concerts behind it. For the past six years, the Institute for Experimental Sound has sought to be a haven for different music and its fans. ‘Listen Differently’ is the guiding idea in organizing concerts that stand out from the usual format of jazz, punk, pop, metal or electronics, but still represent it all. Experimentation and improvisation persistently fight against boredom. Improvisation is a game in which you never know what you will get, which is why ZEZ is an experience.

This fall we are listening, watching and creating differently.

The program was implemented with the support of the work of Zagreb and the Ministry of Culture.
