It will run from May 19 to 28, and the location is truly special – no less than the festival program, of course

From this Thursday, 19.05. Zagreb's favorite spring music street food festival "Beats & Bites" starts again and lasts until Saturday 28.05. This year's ten-day edition of the festival is being held in a particularly interesting location, which is almost completely hidden, and is located in the very center of the city. It is about Krešić's meadows, ie the plateau above the Tuškanac Open Air Cinema, to which a beautiful illuminated forest walk of only 3 minutes leads.

Gastro-sports program

Beats & Bites brings us delicious street food snacks this year as well, but also a great program for young people, which includes themed music evenings, beer pong and white tournaments, pub quizzes and some sports content such as ping pong and table football.

The festival also has a beautifully decorated chill zone so that visitors can relax and enjoy the sun, food and music. During the Beats & Bites Festival, visitors will be able to enjoy excellent street food specialties prepared by Wok by Matija, Shank, Cargo Food & Drink bar and Burger Bit . Also, visitors can expect a pop-up hot dog corner of Perutnina Ptuj, where you will be able to find hot dogs in various variants for only 10 kn.

You can cool off with excellent Bavaria beers, which will also be offered in a "mini version", in 0.25 l bottles. At the Juicy house you will be able to try natural juices in various flavors, but also a very interesting Orahovac with chocolate.

On 7 pop-up houses you will find various versions of woks, burgers and wings, hot dogs, nuggets, strips, spring rolls, but also some new specialties such as ciabatta čevapčić and cocktails with interesting names and contents.
